So I need to make a min of 380 on the GMAT. I thought I would have until the end of December to take it. My school screwed me over and now I have to take it before school starts. Today is Wednesday the only available test date is this Saturday. I am in need of study tips or test strategies to help me out. I also just found out today that I cannot bring a calculator which currently has me freaking out. If anybody can help me please help me..

Take a free official practice test (GMAT Official Starter Kit + Practice Exams 1 & 2). That will at help you get some familiarity with the structure of the exam. Revise the basic concepts tested in the quantitative and verbal sections if you can. Just the basics, nothing that needs more time than you have. Given your score target, you should focus more on accuracy than on timing. This advice could change if your practice test score turns out to be above your target score (in which case, go through this).

For math review, I would check out Khan Academy's "Algebra I" and "Geometry" missions (https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra, https://www.khanacademy.org/math/geometry). Start with the algebra and then do some geometry if you have time.

Also, memorize the formulas here: https://www.prepscholar.com/gmat/blog/g ... ula-sheet/. Squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, order of operations, and distance (under "other algebra operations") will be most important. As AjiteshArun mentioned, don't spend time on concepts that are very challenging--just cover as much as you can. When in the test, guess and move on if you have no idea what to do with a problem (but take a moment to figure this out first). This will ensure that you get to as many questions as possible and hopefully finish the test. A 380 is achievable in this time frame--you can do this!

Another thing to keep in mind if you don't have a lot of experience with the GMAT (and because you're stressed about the whole situation!) is that no matter how well you're doing on test day, the test is going to seem hard. The test is going to adapt to how you're doing - just remember to keep going and to not get hung up on problems that you don't know where to start on. If you make an educated guess on a topic you're not familiar with, you'll have more time to really focus on the questions that you know how to get started on but that are going to take you a bit more time.

Good luck! We'll be rooting for you. :-)
