Hello everyone!
I am new to GMAT and I am yet to start my preparation. Appeared for a Veritas mock and was seriously bored with the verbal questions as I suck when it comes to reading. Somehow, finished the test and scored a 630. My target is a 750+ and I am planning to appear in june-july 2018.
I have bought the latest set of OG's and the Manhattan set of 10 guides. Was wondering if someone will guide me with the preparation and come out with a 3 months study plan for me. Also, I would like to know the best method to study the mgmat guides and together with the OOG's. Are these material sufficient for a 750+ or do I have to go through some other study materials as well?

Thanks in advance.

Hey kanhaiyarohit

Since you are beginning with preparation, I would recommend you to do the following things.
To build your concepts, you could use the Manhattan Guides for Verbal and Quant. GMAT is
not so much about knowing the concepts but about applying the concepts!

Verbal Section Prep
Additionally, you could use the PowerScore CR bible if you need more help with the CR Section
For RC, you could refer to the link given below
https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-s- ... 83101.html

Quant Section Prep
Once you have completed the Manhattan Strategy Guides to get a basic understanding of the
concepts involved with GMAT Quant, you could use the Quantitative Mega-Thread as an additional
resource.

Follow Bunuel in the Quant forums. Solve all the problem sets in his signature. These sets contain
some awesome questions that give you the true taste of GMAT(Baker's Dozen, 12 Easy Pieces etc)
Even otherwise, make sure you solve each and every question he puts up on the forum.
As for practice in both the sections, you can find all the questions at GMATClub. You should use
the Timer to time yourself while practicing questions.

If you are looking for tests, you could invest in the GMATPrep Bundle - this contains 2 exam
packs - EP1 and EP2 and a question pack QP1. These tests will help you understand where
you are with respect to your target score. You will have 2 free tests other than these 4 tests
Take a free test once you are comfortable with the concepts because only these tests give you
a clear understanding of where you stand with regards to the preparation.

Last but not the least, you could check out our study plan:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-study-plan-217827.html

Hope this helps you!

Hi
First of all, getting a score of 630 on the Veritas prep test without any preparation is very good. It shows that with preparation you can easily score a 700+. I would suggest to appear for a Gmatprep test. It is the best approximation to the actual test. Based on that score, you can start working on your weaknesses. The MGMAT guides are comprehensive and cover all topics tested on the Gmat. Take notes and prepare error log. You can find a lot of error log format on this forum. Choose the one you find suitable. Once you are thorough with MGMAT ,start practicing from the OG. After you finish that take another test and check your progress.
Alternatively, you can enroll for the Gmatclub self study plan. It contains a good mix of theory and practice.

At the end of each mgmat book, you have questions pointing to OG related to the same topic.I would complete all MGMAT books first and then finish the OG questions(about 400 of them). I would say 1 month for Quant, 1 for verbal and 1 for going through error log and AWA sections.

eGMAT Verbal course is very through and good. The SC module is really great and very detailed. For RC & CR strategy, I personally feel empowerGMAT is better. But eGMAT Scholaranium has good questions which will be helpful for practicing. With free trial, you can get the trial version of Scholaranium. Check that out.

However, I suggest, before choosing any course, first you go through all the MGMAT books and OG questions. Once you complete that, you choose which course to buy depending on your needs. By that time you'll have fair idea about GMAT and the courses.

Hi,

Scoring a 750 is definitely possible to do in three months time. It would require allot of patience and hard work of course, but definitely possible. We actually wrote a blog on how to prepare for the GMAT in 90 days, feel free to check it out!
http://exampal.com/gmat/blog/how-to-pre ... -3-months/

Good luck!
