Hi,
I recently took my gmat and scored 680( Q 47, V38, IR 5). Studied OG 15, OG 15 supplements, Princeton Review material, GMAT Prep Mocks (2) and PR Mocks (7). Planning to retake the test in another 30-40 days. Can you help me with insights on a good study plan and materials I should refer. Aiming for a 730-750 and was scoring 730 in PR Mocks and 700 in gmat prep mock.
Thanks.

Did you order an ESR? It shall be helpful to know which areas you faltered on in actual exam.
For advancing from Q47 to Q51 GC qaunt tests have good Qs to try your hands on.

Hope this helps!

Do not use external agency mocks as benchmark. They are good for practice, but not a very good indicator. Gmatprep is the best and its usually accurate to +/-30 points. So in your case the final score was in range.

Going forward, I would recommend use gmatprep as the indicator. If needed, go for EP1 and EP2.

Hi
So from what I am gathering ,
1. Manhattan guides / Mocks
2. Gmat exam prep guides
Should be enough to cross the 700?
What is your opinion about Magoosh/ Kaplan/ toponepercent.com?

Hi IB93,

Firstly congratulations on a great Score. You have performed really well in both Quant and Verbal.

Given how close your GMAT date is, I personally do not think one should adopt any new method on the final leg of their GMAT Preparation. It may be nice to give a couple of mocks (the official ones) and work on your weaknesses, but trying something new might not work in anyone’s favor. However if you want to improve on any individual area such as Sentence Correction, you may subscribe to the course as you can finish the whole course in 10 days (with proper dedication). If however you are only looking to indentify and improve on your weak areas, I would encourage you to purchase the e-gmat scholaranium. It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi
Although, I do not have any personal experience with toponepercent gmat, a few days back, I went through this post.

You can refer to it for some feedback.

Before you schedule your study list for the day, you need to take into account that the subjects we learn can be divided into three categories.
