I think I'm not doing well. Motivation is high, but get it done is where I suck. My strategy is to finish the chapters first, not doing any practice problems, let it play for someday then do some practice problems just to see whether I can remember what was actually I have learned on the way. Generally my accuracy level is currently reaching 60% (I didn't try RC or DS Problems From The OG).

Black Stands For No Study At All
Green: Good Study (2-3 Hours)

Thanx Mochad & Asax. Well majority of the questions that I got wrong can be attributed to silly mistakes. I'm giving myself 2 minutes & exact 2 minutes to solve every questions; Verbal or Quantitative. And suddenly time pressure came up. Otherwise it could have been at least 70% of overall accuracy:/. Still I'm not confident or convinced Yes, after few days I will give away my CAT:). Thanx again.

You are doing good, no need to feel down.

Maybe try to keep the verbal time per question closer to 1:40 instead of 2:00 in order to get acquainted with that pacing.

Other than that just keep on and recheck your progresses after one week or so.

Cheers.

So you go really fast on SC and take your time a little bit more on CR... that's interesting, I never thought about using half as much time for SC than CR.

Do you have your specific answer ratio for this two question types? I did not seem to find it on your file, but I would like to see how that works out

Again, keep it up

Yes. Don't get me wrong though. However it is mentionable that, I just a new born baby in sentence correction right now. If you look close to my progress I'm reviewing the same chapter for at least two days to grasp the concepts. Then I did relevant practice under timed conditions. For example: do couple of SVA and pronouns from OGs. Rest of the problems I just out it away when I will finish the entire book. Surprisingly I found out at the same time my CR accuracy is going down. Perhaps I'm doing the problems after couple of weeks. So I just dedicated a day to review the notes for CR. In addition I found out that, in some SC questions you need intuition. Because after reading couple of times you may not find the error. Since I'm just in the beginning of the stage it is right now impossible for me to comment on those.

Here is a view of my strategy.

Quantitative:

DS: 1.75 Min
PS: 2.00 min At best.

Verbal:

CR: 2.00-2.25 Min
SC: 0.75-1.75 At best
RC: 2.00-2.25 or Maybe 3 (Doing some random questions Hard/Med/Soft)

Still I'm respecting this monster. Because overconfidence can kill anyone. I will buy the Gmatprep question pack 1 after couple of days for practice:) Cheers man. I have read your burnout story. Don't give up. People don't fail, they just give up:)

I think some Gmat Fiction might help you for SC; After some reading ( a whole lot actually) it becomes somewhat automatic to see what is wrong in most of the questions. Obviously for EVERY other question you need to know what Gmac wants you to answer. Manhattan's SC guide is not bad at all if you wish to focus on that one. I would probably not lose too much time on the idioms.

Keep it up and let's see how it goes in a couple weeks time.

Thank you, man, that really means a lot for me.
Not giving up, thanks to gmat clubbers like you, among everything else!

Looking forward to see how your preparation keeps developing.

All the best!
