Tomorrow I'm taking the GMATPrep 2, and then study all the OG11 and review questions I missed.

should I guard against burn out? go for 3-4 hours a day like I have been or 12 hours on Saturday and Sunday? My test is on Monday.

So what did you do?

Definitely guard yourself against burnout and take rest on sunday. You need all your energy on the test day.

My plan was to take the last week off and try to average 10-12 hrs of studying per day, taking the very last day off.

I spent my first 2 out of 4 days on reviewing my error log and practicing timing by retaking GMATPrep. I spent the last two days (saturday and sunday) on shopping and watching TV :) I tried to be as distracted from the thouhts about the GMAT as possible not to get anxious.

If you are a nervous type, I recommend taking a sleeping pill the night before your test. Sleep is very important!

- took gmatprep(repeat) 2 days before the exam
- learned a new strategy for a concept the night before (overlapping sets -- didn't appear on exam, but was better prepared for those question types)

you really can't burn out if you give yourself a whole day before the test.

set aside a couple of OG problems that you have gotten right of escalating difficulty to use at warm up for the morning of test day.
