Hi,

I'm following Beat the GMAT's 60 day study plan because I could not afford the study programs from Kaplan, Veritas Prep, etc. However, I'm not aiming to master the GMAT in 60 days because some topics are taking me more than one day.

How do you rate the structure of this study plan? A few days ago I found a whole section of study plans in this forum and it got me thinking if the plan I'm currently following is actually worth it.

It's okay to take more than one day on a topic. In fact, I don't think it's reasonable to expect anyone to become very comfortable with a topic in just one day. That deep "comfort" takes time to develop, and that's okay.

That said, I'm not familiar with this 60 day plan. Can you post it here? A link will do.

You shouldn't look to follow any specific plan to the T. Just because some one else can do something in 2 days doesn't mean you can too and vice-versa. You'll have to identify your own strengths and weaknesses and allocate time accordingly.
Did you take a mock at the start to see where you stood and what areas needed more focus?
The plans can be a guideline, but you'll have to customize it to your needs.

souvik101990 put together his own plan that he would go to based on his experience over the years with the GMAT: https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-self-pr ... 45667.html

I don't know how it compares but it may give you more comfort with the one that Brent from GMATPrepNow put together.

The plan looks great. I'm into day 10 of the other plan. Would you recommend starting over with this new plan? Or is there an efficient way of merging what I already covered in other plan with this one?

Thank you!

I’m sorry I don’t have the answer :(

Not to blow your mind but I know Magoosh also has a study plan. Technically, I MGMAT also has a study plan, it’s basically how their books are laid out. There are many roads to the same place.

The key is to do the work, learn the material, keep track of your mistakes and make sure you never make them again, and timing yourself on every question.

Hi AE11,

Regardless of which Study Plan you choose to follow, it's important to 'measure' the effectiveness of your studies by taking FULL-LENGTH CATs (with the Essay and IR sections) at regular intervals throughout your studies. In that way, you define how effective your studying is - and whether there are additional adjustments that you need to make (beyond learning new content).

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?
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,
Rich
