Hey all,
G-Day is July 23 for me. My test prep scores are listed in my signature block. Here is what I am planning to do between now and G-Day:

minimum of 6 more CATs - Rest of MGMAT, GMAT Prep 1 and 2 again
Today I took GMAT Prep 2 and scored a 720, which really made me happy. Everything I have read says that GMAT Prep is the most likely predictor of your actual score. So at this point, I am feeling pretty good about getting 700+.

Currently I am working on the following:

MGMAT Advanced GMAT Quant (quant is my weakness, I am trying to get into the high 40s and stay there consistently)

Verbal - I am going through OG 12 and the Verbal Review 2nd Edition, finishing up the RC portions and redoing some SC and CR on occasion. Mostly I'm just trying to stay sharp on Verbal, not lose "it" before the test. Thought about doing PowerScore CR or something, but havent gone that route as of yet. I'm also doing problems posted on the forums here regularly.

Overall, I am trying to do an hour of verbal during lunch breaks and then an hour or so of math every night during the week. Weekends, one practice CAT minimum and a little more review.

Any suggestions for me to maintain/improve in the next few weeks before I finally get this monkey off my back?

Yeah - I already have completed all those books. I still review them here and there to keep concepts fresh in my mind.

Make sure to take the CAT's under realistic test conditions. And if you redo any CAT's, these scores might be inflated. That does serve a purpose in terms of confidence, but it's still important to be careful. Overall, good guidebooks + question practice > CAT practice.

For extra math preparation, look into the GMATClub tests. They are extremely difficult, but will help you to improve your quant performance.

And make sure to relax a day or two prior to the test in order to feel refreshed and mentally energized.
