Hi Everyone,

I have started my GMAT prep more than a month ago and have 6 more weeks left before my test date. I am hoping some of you might be able to help with my preparation :-) . So far, I have done Manhattan strategy guides and OG.

I am kind of good with quant but pretty bad at verbal (especially at SC) and time management - haven't started timing my practice/tests yet. I took a Kaplan mock today and scored a 710 (Q50 & V38), but I have been told by multiple people that I should consider my score as (kaplan score minus 30), as their tests are easy. I am targeting 750. Haven't taken the GmatPrep mock yet and plan to take one in the next 10 days.

I also bought both quant and verbal review guides and plan to start those next and for quant, I was suggested a 700-800 level questions pdf. I was wondering what else I need to do to reach my target, should I practice more or start taking more tests? If I need to practice, where can I practice verbal from? I feel very under prepared in verbal right now. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance :),

Hey CL111

First off, Welcome to GMATClub

You seem to be doing well with your preparation. IMO, the first step
must be to analyze the kaplan mock and work on your weak areas.
Since you are planning to take the GMATPrep around 10 days later,
you could go through the LINK and GMATNinja's SC Videos on Youtube
to strengthen your concepts in SC. Once you take the GMATPrep test
you should report with your individual percentiles to get better guidance.

As you are comfortable with the Quant concepts, if there are a few
topics where you make your mistakes, you could go through the
Quantitative Mega-Thread to revise your concepts in that particular
area. You could practice Quant questions from link number 2 and 3.

Some links you might find handy
1.GMATClub Quantitative Mega-Thread
2.PS Directory by Topic and Difficulty
3.DS Directory by Topic and Difficulty

Hope this information helps you!

As you are concerned about verbal section, your initial task is to find which section of verbal annoys you more. In order to know where you stand in each section of verbal, I would suggest you to take e-gmat verbal ability quiz(Free if you sign up). This one will truly reflect your verbal ability.
Keep us posting, so that we can guide you better :thumbup:
All the best for your exams

Hi CL111,

To start, I'm hoping that you can clarify something from your post - have you taken ANY practice CATs under realistic and timed conditions? I ask because you stated that you had not yet started timing your practice/tests yet - and if this recent CAT was NOT taken under realistic, timed conditions, then the score result is likely 'inflated' (meaning that you aren't really at the 710 'level' yet).

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) What is your exact Test Date?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

pushpitkc and itisSheldon, Thanks a lot for your suggestions. I will definitely check those.

Hey EMPOWERgmatRichC, I have not taken any CATs under timed conditions. Yes, I totally agree that I might have difficulty finishing with the same level scores if it were timed. I tend to overrun on the clock when I'm doing verbal. Quant is mostly fine. Which is why I was wondering if I should focus on practicing more or take more tests.

Regarding your questions, my test date is 6th June and I am planning to apply for the year of 2020 (still need plan out the details on which schools exactly etc).

Thanks,
CL

Hi,

You can use Experts' Global Practice tests! They also have a Verbal Only course. I personally found the software most helpful.

Hi CL111,

Since you have not been taking your practice CATs properly, I strongly recommend that you take a NEW CATs (one of the new, shorter format CATs) and take it in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). Once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss how best to proceed. Until we have that data, we won't know for sure what you need to work on.
