Mock test 2 days before or 3 days before? Confused! [#permalink]

Hi,

This might sound like a stupid question but I just need a little advice...

My GMAT test is on the 29th of this month - 4 days from now (in my time zone, it is the 25th as I type this). I have one mock test left, from GMATPrep. I had originally decided to take it tomorrow (26th), which would mean there would be 2 days left after that until the actual test. Now I'm wondering whether I should take it on the 27th instead, and go through/revise material today and tomorrow? The downside of that, however, is if I find that I still have a few weaknesses, I will have less than a day to brush up on them, as opposed to 2 days if I take it on the 26th. The upside of taking it on the 27th is I will be a little better prepared (probably!), so the likelihood of getting a good mock test score is greater.

Naturally, taking it on the on the 28th is out of the question, from the various stories of 'burning out', etc., that I have read here.

Suggestions?

Probably no right or wrong answer here.

A lot of people are of the opinion that you should not do any preparation the day before your exam, and I tend to agree with this.

Given that, I would say take your remaining practice exam 3 days before the exam, spend the next day thoroughly reviewing it and studying what you missed, and then take the day before the exam and relax.

But again, I think this is really just a matter of personal preference, and you can't go too wrong either way.

I would definitely take it as soon as possible, spend some time correcting, and then relax and clear your mind of anything GMAT-related on the days before the test. Once you walk into the test center, it`ll all come back to you in a fresher context.

Thanks.

I did indeed take the test today and got a reasonable score. I'll spend tomorrow going through a few weak areas and relax the day before the test.
