Manhattan 5th Edition + OG16. Need topicwise Qs from OG16 [#permalink]

New post 28 Feb 2017, 23:04
Hey guys I'm appearing for the GMAT on 6th April, 2017. I know I just have a month left but I have no other option as the deadline for the university I'm applying to is in mid-April only.

Anyway, I have the following books with me:
1. Manhattan Complete Strategy Guide 5th Edition
2. Official Guide for GMAT Review 2016

I have noticed at the end of the Manhattan books the OG questions to practice topic wise but they correspond to an older version of the OG (13th edition).

I need to know if someone has already marked the practice questions from OG16 as per each topic so that I can practice after completion of each book from the Manhattan set. Thanks in advance!

Hi zeeshanmemon,

From your post, it's not clear whether you're just beginning your studies or not. Before you 'jump in' to those books and start working on practice questions, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) What School are you planning to apply to?

Studies:
1) I just started studying yesterday i.e. 1st March
2) I gave the GMAT a few months back but performed poorly due to putting little effort into my studies. My score was 430.

Goals:
3) My target score is 600+
4) I am from Pakistan and planning to apply locally only. My top priority is Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS)

So I already have experience of studying from these books which I've mentioned. This time I am completely focused on studying and achieving a good score while working full time. I do plan to take a week or two off from work before the actual exam on 6th April 2017.

Study Strategy:
So my strategy so far is to go through a book from the Manhattan set, and then practice the corresponding questions immediately from the OG 16 plus the quantitative review guide as well. Hence I was asking about topic wise question marking because in the OG book all questions are mixed. I can also go through the supplementary sets of Manhattan "Foundation of GMAT". In the last week I plan to practice full length tests.

I would appreciate if you can advise a better strategy :)

Hi zeeshanmemon,

If it's really been several months since you took the GMAT, then you should plan to take a new FULL-LENGTH CAT (with the Essay and IR sections) sometime soon so that we can get a realistic sense of your current skills, strengths and weaknesses. Once you have that score result, you should post back here.

With your current Test Date, you have just 5 weeks of study time - and unfortunately that might not be enough time for you to hit your score goal. As such, you might want to consider other application deadlines.

Thank you so much! This was extremely useful to me for practicing. I never knew such an amazing forum existed. :-D

Just got done with my exam and scored a 600. While not such an extraordinary score, I think it will get the job done for my admission into my target school mentioned earlier. Hoping for the best! :) :D

Hi zeeshanmemon,

That's absolutely fantastic news that you were able to hit your score goal! I'm sure others here would like to know more about what you did in that short study timeframe. Were you able to use your prior attempt at the GMAT to better plan for your second attempt? How were you scoring on your practice CATs during these last 5 weeks of study?

Yes. I definitely learned from my previous attempt and knew better how to plan out my study schedule and practice sessions. After going through each Manhattan book I practiced the relevant questions from the OG16. Studied for about 2 hours after office every weekday and 5-6 hours every weekend. After going through all the books and practicing all questions from the OG16, I turned to the full length tests. Bought the additional GMAT Exam Pack 2 as well. I took 8 days off from work before the actual exam and studied for almost the whole day everyday. I also practiced from the 4 official GMAT full length tests.

Test 1: 540
Test 2: 570
Test 3: 610
Test 4: 590

Also, for critical reading I would also regularly read the news with complete focus to improve my timing and information comprehending skills.
