Hello friends,

I have been working on my GMAT studies past 1.5 months. My studies have been irregular so far, majorly because of my work. The problem is after a break I loose my confidence and when I start working again, I feel I don't know anything and that I have to start from the1st page of every book I have :(. This might sound crazy but believe me I am going through tremendous GMAT pressure. I need to finish GMAT with high scores as soon as poosible. I need some advice from you folks. As far as my preparation is concerned, I am done with almost 80% OG 10 and currently, I am working on the forum most of the time. You would have noticed that number of posts from my id has shooted up in recent past and one can also imagine how desparate I would be to post answer to each and every problem :( I would like to know if this us the way i should continue working? I still have to go through Princeton, Kaplan, Kaplan800 books. To get a good score is it realy necessary to solve all the books? (kinda dumb question i know but I am very tensed at this stage and don't know how to leap forward). I see posts from people scoring high and it boosts my confidence but at the same time it increases the pressure on me to perform high the same way. I just can't stop thinking negative :( Hah! any advice at this stage will be of great help to me. I am planning to wind up my test prep and write real test in next 3-4 weeks or so. I am looking forward to hear from forum seniors like praetorian,wyilfred,vivek etc. who have already passed this stage and from others. Friends any words from you will help me run on the right track (Finally! when i have started putting focused efforts, I think that i am atleast in right direction!, but ofcourse not on right track :( :( )

Thanks alot for everything you'll guys have given me so far!

I wanna ace GMAT badly!

Hi GMATacer,
I completely understand the pressure that you are under. I too feel the pressure from time to time, especially when i visit the forum and see so many people quite literally acing the test. I just talk myself into focusing on my studies and not getting intimidated.
As for the studying, I think Princeton and Kaplan books are valuable resources, but you need to short list what your weaknesses are and zero in on which one of these are likely to boost your scores. I havent given the real test as yet, so am not an authority in anyway. :roll:
Keep at it and lets hear what other folks have to say!
