Hi khaledyosry,

Thanks for reaching out.
1. Have you taken CATs before? If so, what were your scores? I need to know this to know more or less where you're at in terms of ability.
2. What is your target score? This is extremely important for determining a study plan - the amount of work necessary for a 650 and 750 are vastly different.
3. Have you built an error log for yourself? This is the most important part of self-improvement. When you study, you should not try to answer as many questions as possible but rather learn as you answer: What types of mistakes do you tend to make? What types of solution approaches work best for you?

If you like, check out our video on Introduction to PAL on our website here. There we explain the PAL system - 3 complementary and radically different approaches with which to solve different GMAT questions (our course specializes in adapting the right approach for each student). As different students have different strengths and weaknesses, you shouldn't expect that a 'one-size-fits-all' book will work for you. Instead, you must search for the specific approaches that make your life the easiest.

Hi khaledyosry,

Solving questions alone won’t help until you learn from them and have a structured process for solving questions to avoid the mistake second time. I would also like to know if this is just your feeling that you are not doing well, or have you taken quizzes/tests to identify that you are not improving?

Attend free webinars this weekend to get a jump-start in your GMAT Prep

We are conducting free webinars this weekend on SC and Number Properties wherein you can learn structured processes to solve SC and NP questions. Register on the below links to reserve your spot.

Hi khaledyosry,

1) Please describe how you have been studying. For many hours a day and for how many months? What resources have you been using?

2) To what programs will you be applying? What are the deadlines for these programs?

3) By when would you LIKE to take the GMAT? By when MUST you take the GMAT?

4) How many hours a day, on average, can you study between now and your next GMAT?

What measures are you taking on improving on your mistakes?

Are you maintaining a error log and reviewing your mistakes again and again?

Hi
I would like to reiterate the same thing as others have pointed out in the above posts.
Maintaining an error log is one of the best part of improving your Gmat score. All candidates who have scored high on the Gmat maintain an error log. You can find many formats in the forum. Revise the questions and identify which mistakes you are making regularly. That way, you can avoid those mistakes.
All the best.

Concentration can be increased by using pen and paper. Once you are doing any question, please use pen and paper to solve or to even jot down points in case of RC / CR.

Hi khaledyosry,

In a prior post, you stated that your Score Goal was 700+, but you have not provided any information about how 'close' you might be to that Goal right now. Thus, we should start by discussing your practice CATs and go from there:

1) Have you taken any FULL-LENGTH CATSs yet? How have you scored on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?

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