Hello everyone hope you'll find this post helpful
I have made a study plan that suits my current situation as i have quit my job and completely focusing on my GMAT in the next 2 months.
I have purchased the Manhattan GMAT Guides as i have heard great reviews to get a good foundation for my GMAT preparation
Along with that are the 6 Manhattan mocks which also have been suggested to be a close match to the actual GMAT exam with the Quantitative section being a bit on the more difficult side .
Week 1:- Get the basics out the way for the Quantitative section as Quants as it seems to be my strong point
Along with that practice Official guide questions side by side from the GMAT club which has a timer for each Question as well as a Error log to keep track of my mistakes
Week 2:-Start with Verbal section, Sentence correction as it seems to be the important part on the GMAT as per my understanding which once perfected can save ample of time for other sections like Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning which seem to be a tad bit more difficult.
Used GMAT club to practice from the OG 19
Week 3:- Learn the strategies for RC and practice along side. Also start the prep for Critical Reasoning.
Week 4:- Start giving mock tests every 5 days and practice sections in which i am still scoring less
Week 5:- Solve OG Questions between the gaps of every mock and try to improve my time management
Week 6:- Give Official Gmat prep mocks 3 & 4 to gauge my performance
Week 7:- Give Official Gmat prep mocks 5 & 6 to gauge my performance

Request you'll to kindly give me your suggestion if this is a good way to prepare for GMAT as I am planning to score above 700 mark, and if i need to make any changes or improvements to my plans.

Thank You
Regards

Hi saviofernanz,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

Beyond that initial CAT, the only practical way to assess your GMAT skills over time is to take FULL-LENGTH CATs at regular intervals and under realistic conditions (re: taking the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). In addition, there are certain aspects to taking a FULL CAT that you can only learn by actually taking a FULL CAT - and if you have to make some adjustments to your test-taking routine, then it's better to have MORE time to define those issues and fix them (than waiting to take your CATs at the 'end' of your studies, when you might not have enough time to properly improve). Each CAT also gives us a way to measure how well you have learned and practiced the content from that Stage in the Course. If you're not practicing/using what you have learned, then we need to know that as soon as possible.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi saviofernanz,

Two months, even when not working, is not a ton of time to prep for your exam. Thus, before I provide further advice, it would be helpful to know your baseline GMAT score and your goal score. Could you, in short order, take an official MBA.com exam. Once you complete the exam, please report back here, and I can provide some specific advice.

Hey guys, thank you so much for your inputs.
And yes a first mock to asses where I'm currently at, is definitely on my list just wanted to learn a bit more about the GMAT and maybe only review few math formulas before giving my mock.
