I am so overwhelmed with all the material that I have. I am taking the test the second time around. My GMAT score, taken on Nov 1 was 640, M44 V35. And I plan to take my test late Dec. Goal: 700+

My main weaknesses:
1. Timing on Math
2. Verbal

I have tons of material and I want to do quality problems rather than quantity:

I have:
1 ALL the OG guides - previously completed 70%
2. GMATPrep - Took 3 CATS a month ago for the Nov 1 test
2. Kaplan online material - completed 70% with 3 CATS left
3. 1000 series: completed 1/3 of the SC and CR
3. Princeton CATs - completed4.
4. 3 ARCO CATS
5. PowerPrep

1. MGMAT 6 CATS
2. GMAT Forum practice sets

My plan:
1. Do 20-30 SC, CR, RC, DS, PS from 1000s per day - all timed via GMATTER
2. Take 2-3 CATS per week (I'll save the OG ones close to test date)
3. Start on the second half of the OG questions two weeks prior to the test.

1. Should I bother with the 1000 series? Are they representative of the real questions? Or should I stick to OG and redo them ?
2. What should be the order of my study plan in terms of the material I have and considering that this is a retake.
3. Help me prioritize or eliminate or add to the list of CATs I have / plan to buy:
-Kaplan - 3 online, 5 on CD from 2005book
-MGMAT - 6 online
-ARCO 2006- 3 on CD
-PowerPrep- 2
-GMAT paper based tests

A huge thank you!
