Hello guys, new to forum.

So background first. I joined a coaching for GMAT back in august, total waste of money. Irregular classes, no clarity of concept.
Around mid oct I realised i need to look elsewhere. I decided to go with Magoosh.

Went through all the video lessons which took a lot of time. Mostly quant because i suck at it big time.
Still some concepts like coordinate geometry and probability aren't 100% clear.

Fast forward to nov 12, took the veritas mock, scored 530/40. dont remember exactly. q35 v29.
nov 22 & 23 580 on gmat prep and veritas both on consecutive days. q41 v29.
Today I took another mock on veritas. I was expecting to score somewhere between 620-640 which if i did would enable me to reach my target score of 680+ easily.
I had prepared quite a bit.

Sadly i scored just 590. q41 and v30.

The thing is I felt for sure id score more in quant because this was the first mock I was actually 'getting the questions'. Verbal score would be more but there was this passage i couldn't make head or tails of which is why i believe the score was a mere 30.

My gmat is on 22nd. I'll need atleast a day for IR & awa and another for flying out to my test centre. So that leaves me with just 15/16 days.

I desperately need to get my target score. I'd appreciate any pointers you guys could give me.

For reference, materials i have are. 2 extra gmat prep tests i bought, 4 veritas mocks, OG and magoosh. I have around 230 questions left in both the sections on magoosh. OG, I have the entire verbal section left, the data sufficiency and half the PS questions.
In addition I also have 9 gmat club tests given to me by my cousin.

Any advice would help. I plan on spending atleast 8-10 hours/day and not leaving my room lol. Thanks

Hi Somuk

With 20 days to go, you should focus on whatever official material you could get
your hands on. I would recommend you to buy the GMATPrep Question Pack
and work on it.

Take only official tests: the two tests you bought and the free GMATPrep tests
(available on mba.com) which you most probably have

Start taking official tests and analyze what is the reason for the low score?
Work on those topics and give another test before the next week. Ideally,
try and give a mock a week and spend the time fixing the problem areas.

GMATClub Quantitative Mega-thread : https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... 44512.html
RC Strategy Guide : https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-s- ... 83101.html

Try and solve all the questions in the OG and the Question Pack and analyze
20-30 points. The Quantititave Mega thread contains all the basic formulae
and concepts tests on the GMAT. The GMATClub Quant tests are good to
improve your score once you start hitting the Q45 level.

Hope this helps you!
