Dear All,

I am looking to join B school this Fall, and the schools I have shortlisted ask for scores of minimum 600.

I have already taken the test on APRIL 12 and scored a dismal 380. Q21 V21. I am taking the test again around the 7th of June. Already a month is over since I last took the test, and during this time I had gone through the basics of both MATH and VERBAL using the GMAX course online. I still have 24 days to go from here and my plan is now to work out full length practice tests ( as I have worked on problems from individual topics during my course, where in I dedicated seperate time periods) and follow an error log and brush up on topics where I am weak

I have been using the following study material

OG 10
OG 11
OG QUANTITATIVE REVIEW
OG VERBAL REVIEW
BARRONS 12TH EDITION
KAPLAN 800
kAPLAN VERBAL WORKBOOK

My question is whether I can reach 600 on test day following my plan or if any of you have any alternative plan, do let me know. I would be very happy if someone can help me out

Regards

Sameena

Well that depends on how well you are progressing. I see that you are keeping track of your errors so you are in the right direction. You can (re)take the GMATPrep test(s) to evaluate where you currently stand.

Oh thanks for your reply. Compartively, I can see the difference in progress from where I stood before the first test and now.

I found out there were lots of methodology to follow, especially in the VERBAL section and I am now getting a grip of things.

QUANTS has been my weak area always and I am working on the basics. The online course (gmax) was really helpfull and I will be done with the course by tommorow and day after and from 16th I have time upto 6th June, where in I am planning just to do practice test and keep improving on my weak areas.

Any suggestions??

Welcome to GMAT Club Sameena!

You may be in the same boat as Fatma - see my response to him. He also has 380 and needs 600 - a pretty impressive coincidence!

Can you suggest any methodology/plan to move forward based on what I have posted?

I want to improve my QUANTS drastically. VERBAL is not a problem, as I am confident I can do it (I have always been good in English)

Thanks for your help!

To get your quant up - you need to get a good book. Don't rush into test-taking - instead focus on fundamentals/basics and make sure you get the theory part down first.

This thread is dedicated to Math Guidebooks: best-gmat-math-prep-books-reviews-recommendations-77291.html

The most recommended all-in-one math book is the Kaplan Math Workbook.
If you are REALLY Bad - consider the Manahattan GMAT Guides - they have a number to address very specific math topics - all come recommended from members on this forum.

For quant - it is pretty straightforward - you need to refresh High School Math, learn gmat patterns, and get a handle of the DS questions. You should be in OK shape in a month. Again - don't rush to solving questions so much. I would hang on to the OG Quantitative until you have gone through the Kaplan Math Workbook.

Thanks for your reply.

I have the KAPLAN mathworkout book and have worked out questions from it before my first test. As I told you I had been taking the GMAX online course for the past 2 weeks and I am almost gonna be done with in a couple of days. I have a fair good grip now on the basics except for very few specific topics like range, standard deviation etc.

Please suggest what should I do once my course gets over in the next two days, considering the fact I would be having timeup to the 6TH of June i.e about 24 days to be precise.

Also please send me your email id if you dont mind as I can be in touch with you for any help directly.

P.S: Have you taken the test btw? what was your score??

Regards
