Hi guys I am at my last month of prep and I feel pretty solid all round with no particular weak points I am al ready planning to take 2 tests per week to improve my test performance and to re do all my error log. any extra advises to gain an extra edge

ATM my score have been 680 on MGMAT (low mainly due to bad time management) and yesterday I took Gmat Prep 2 but I messed up and I didn't get my score but I had a nice feeling and I also finished in time, also quant felt much smoother than mgmat quant

Hi lepe9696,

It's important to remember that taking lots of CATs will NOT make you a better Test Taker. A CAT is really a 'measuring device' - when used correctly, it will give you a realistic score and help define your strengths and weaknesses, but it will NOT help you to fix any of those weaknesses. To raise your scores, you have to put in the necessary practice and repetitions. The CAT will show you whether your studies are helping you to improve or not. As such, you really shouldn't take more than 1 FULL CAT per week.

1) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
2) What is your goal score?
3) When are you planning to take the GMAT?

Currently I have taken
GMAT Prep 1 only quant (Q49)
MGMAT 1 (Q47 V36) the low Verbal is mainly due to poor time management
Then I took GmatPrep but messed up and did not got my score.... anyway I feel like it went way better with quality time management.

Overall I can't individuate any major flaw I manage to get good accuracy also on tough questions ( finished K800 (pretty awful) with 95%+ accuracy on quant and 80%+ on Verbal)
My only problem is that I don't deal with method w/ all questions especially under pressure and this is way I was thinking about going through at least 2/3 CATs per week

Hi lepe9696,

When was the last time you took a FULL-LENGTH CAT (with the Essay and IR sections)? If you have not done that yet, then I suggest that you take one soon (perhaps this weekend). We need to know how you handle the FULL Test when taken in a realistic fashion (so make sure to take it away from your home, at the same time as when you plan to take the Official GMAT, etc.). Based on what you've described, I don't think that we have a realistic sense of your skills yet - and that information is essential to planning out your studies going forward. Once you have that score, you should report back and we can discuss how best to proceed.
