Hey Guys, I really appreciate the help and the experts wisdom little bit about my GMAT story!

This is bullet point update to my previous story and struggle with GMAT!Score i am aiming for 680-710

Lets start with my exams:
September Score:520(Q35 and V27)
December Score: 530(Q36 and V27)

Mocks exams

MGMAT scores are 580,610,620,640,650,610

Story
i'm not so good on Quant and frankly never really enjoyed math so naturally Quant section of GMAT is my nightmare,
i started studying around April with Manhattan Foundation/ and the 9 books and doing OG 13 on daily basis, my first exam was on August but because of my job change and constant stress i did not prepare properly for the exam and got 520 with Q35 and V27 which was surprising as my Verbal never went below 35s but RC was intense that day(one about pulsating star another about microbes), after April i decided to get my stuff together and hired a private tutor,now he taught me interesting materials and prepped me mainly in Quant while also improved my SC and advised to take all GmatClub test ;however, when is started taking them i just understood how much i did not know, we studied with him absolute values geometry and algebra and arithmetic but my scores were around low 30's and some even at 27, the problem now



My Strategy for 2018
I will take two month starting with 500-600 Level and moving up the ladder by doing each topic again with harder questions, I usually feel comfortable with Verbal but my score is abysmal, its interesting to note that in my MGMATs my verbals hovers around 35's but in my both exams i got 27 which is very surprising to me, Sources i plan to use: all my previous OGS, Error-logs, GMAT club, tutor handouts, and i'm planning to buy epower-gmat heavily focus on Quant to get it up 44 and focus on quality of verbal hoping to get it at least above 38, study patterns 2-3 hours weekdays and 5-6 hours weekend, my problem was i did not study properly usually ending up in YouTube or reading news

any suggestions & analysis will be helpful!!!

Hi there,
I’m not an expert but I was in almost same situation two years ago. In my opinion, Magoosh videos for Quant are extremely helpful. It provided me profound knowledge of GMAT quant. My account now is expired but I still keep all the notes so I can reference when I’m back to prepare after long time postponed. Still helpful.
I don’t buy e-gmat or Veritas so I have no idea.
Good luck to you.

Hi OrkhanR,

Since you're taking the Official GMAT in a few days, we shouldn't try to come up with a full plan UNTIL you have that new Score Result. Once you have it, you should post back here and we can discuss how best to proceed.

1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
3) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
