Hi everyone,

Ill be taking the GMAT sometime over the next couple of months. I have prepared on and off for about a year so not a newbie.

I plan to finish the GMAT review, GMAT club tests, magoosh questions and take a couple of manhattan tests.

Will this be enough?

I wanted to know I should just start doing random questions after finishing the concepts? or attempt concept specific questions as I go along?

As of now, magoosh states my quant score to be between 38-44 and verbal to be 29-36.

I took a gmatclub test which i thought was quite hard and got 34!!

Would welcome any tips and strategies.

Thanks

Magoosh was very useful for me. I think I spent about 118 hours on Magoosh, mostly on the math section (which was where I knew I needed to focus). If I remember correctly, after completing the math lessons, I then did lots of practice questions.

Honestly, what also helped me was the recognition that if I didn't do great on the test, I could always retake it. That took some of the pressure off my test day experience.

I believe practice tests are also very useful, but make sure to go back and figure out what you got wrong on them and why. Magoosh really emphasized the principle of not making the same mistake twice.

As a disclaimer, I didn't use the verbal section of Magoosh too intensively, so I can't really say how helpful it would be for those trying to improve their verbal score. I'm sure it won't hurt to use it, though.

It's hard to say whether this will be "enough". There are just too many factors involved. What you can do is take GMATPreps at regular intervals to see how close you are to your target score. That will help you evaluate your plan and make the necessary changes.

Hi Sid,

In your profile, you've listed a Score of 650/Q47. Is that an Official GMAT Score (and if it is, then when did you take the Official GMAT?)? Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far, including practice CATs/mocks?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hi Sid,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Although I can’t say whether your resources will be enough for you to achieve your score goal, the important thing is to objectively evaluate your progress so that, in the event that your resources aren’t meeting your needs, you don’t end up overinvesting time in materials that aren’t working for you.

Regarding HOW to study, ideally you want to follow a linear study plan that allows you to FIRST learn a topic and SECOND practice questions from that topic, to ensure that you have mastered the topic on which those questions are based.

Also, you may find it helpful to read this article about how to improve your GMAT quant score.

Feel free to reach out with further questions.
