Need Help- Nearing My Test Day  [#permalink]

Hi All,

I am an ICSE student with Maths background till 10th only.
Coming straight to the point, my exam date is on April 14th, 2018. Aiming for 700-730 score
My prep Material include MGMAT Bundle(verbal+Quants), OG2018, GMATClub, these are the only knowledge source i have been using for Preparation.
Also i would like to let you know that I have a very flexible job with a 4 day week, having three days holidays, and flexible working hours.
I would be able to spare 3 to 4 hours on working days, and 6-7 hours on holidays.

I really need someone to help me know the right way of studying using prep in the last month, so that it shows best results.

I have divided my query into 3 parts-

Part 1. Preparation for Quants
Its almost 2 moths since i started my preparation, with my focus on quants mainly i have come to a score of GMAT Prep Q40 from MGMAT Q23(my 1st disgnostics test score before starting any of my prep material). I have gone through 5 books on the maths fundamental from MGMAT sum by sum. and worked out Quant OG questions.currently douing main OG quant section.
With only 1 month for my exam date I need help or a structured material that could be a clear cut path to utilize my time effectively.
I would like to know whether i m in the right track and what would be the key things that i should be focussing in this last lap of my preparation to get that 700 Score.

Part 2. Preparation for Verbal.
To be very frank I havent touched anything on my verbal preparation, 1st diagnostic test score in MGMAT V23 - recent score in GMAT Prep V24.
As I would be working more on verbal in this last month, and working paralleley in Quants, I need to know the best way and the best material that could give me the most with the time constrains in mind. I prefer videos more than books.

Please help me out with the verbal preparation, seems like i can do it, with a little guidance from experienced people.

Part-3 General Query
Also I have taken multiple mocks test, and clear difficulty i face is the order of section, when i attempt for quants and then verbal I seem to mostly mess up with verbal. if its verbal first, 1st few questions in quants seems to take more time or probabaly go wrong.Knowing the 1st 10 quests in Quants have high value with respect to the scores. I am not sure whether this is a right order of choice , or its just my mind stamina that i need to build.

Would be very happy to take any tips or advice that worked for any of you in past during the last month of preparation

Good day to you!

Thank You

Hi Sulaikha,

You mentioned that you have taken several practice CATs during your studies, so to provide the proper advice that you're looking for, we'll need to discuss those score results in more detail.

1) How did you score on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores fore EACH)?
2) Did you take the ENTIRE CAT each time (including the Essay and IR sections)?
3) Did you take them at home?
4) Did you take them at the same time of day as when you plan to take your Official GMAT?
5) Did you ever do ANYTHING during your CATs that you couldn't do on Test Day (pause the CAT, skip sections, take longer breaks, etc.)?
6) Did you ever take a CAT more than once? Had you seen any of the questions BEFORE (re: in an online forum or in a practice set)?

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