Hello thr,

I am planning to the GMAT by the end of Feb'13.

The issue is I was not regular perhaps with my planning and didn't revise the concepts I learned.

I haven't started CR, and SC is giving a tough time (Manhattan SC is cool, but it needs a certain respect. B-) )

Should I buy "Aristotle SC" or should I stay with Manhattan SC?

Should I incorporate Manhattan Advanced quants? ( I am not done with all the Manhattan quants books yet)?

I can invest 6-7 hours a day until 26th Feb as I am not taking up any project (my job allows me that)

Let me know.....if Two months are enough with the above issues.

Regards,

-- Manhattan SC is one of the bests book out there for SC. Its certainly a good reference.

Should I incorporate Manhattan Advanced quants? ( I am not done with all the Manhattan quants books yet)?
-- It depends upon what is your target score in Quant. Once you finish your MGMAT quant books, Give a GMATprep or MGMAT test first and find out where do you stand in Quant.
If you want to score 50-51 and are consistently scoring above 47-48, then MGMAT advanced quant is for you.
If you are scoring in lower 40s then you would need to work more on the basics through MGMAT strategy guides.

Hey Prapon,

Thanks a lot for the answer.

I want to get a 700+, and I haven't seen a Two month 'success story' yet.....perhaps I would be the 1st to write one. :D

Let me know what you think.

There can be several ways, but do what suits you the best, based on your available time, schedule and capacity.
1. Refer to below 3 month plan and squeeze it into your 2 month plan, by focusing on your weak areas and breezing through your strengths.

2. Read the below post (& specified links) for 2-month strategy - a MUST read by Stacy Koprince (MGMAT). This can be the one of best resource available to build your GMAT plan/strategy.

I think the Manhattan SC book is a bit overwhelming, Aristotle Prep's SC grail is simple to understand (my experience based on the second edition) The new edition covers the advanced concepts in great detail from what I hear and is very well structured.

For Quant focus on basics if your basics are strong then move to the advanced stuff. Check out GMATquantum on my sig below the video explanations are absolutely fantastic. I do advise buying the GMAT prep question pack 1.

e-GMAT offers a free strategy session. You may access the HD recording from our new events portal by clicking here. Feel free to use the left hand menu if you need to jump to a particular slide. The session presentation is shared on the last slide.

Next Steps (Best practices)
To benefit most from the session, do the following:
1. Write down your target score and the number of productive hours you have before the exam
2. Take the e-GMAT SC/CR/RC diagnostic to assess your strengths and weaknesses.
3. Create a list of core skills that you believe you need to master.

View the session recording for more help on the above three points.
Regards,
