Hi , can any of you good peep here provide me a review for 1138 Gmat question by Princeton review book ? I have finished the OGs and i am looking for additional material to practice more questions.

Hi rishabhshreyas14,

Before you jump into to working through a large set of new practice questions, we should make sure that you're focused on the right subjects (and using the proper Tactics). Back in June, 2019, you stated that you took the GMAT and scored 650/Q47/V33. I'd like to know a bit more about how you've been studying since then and your goals:

Studies:
1) What type of study routine have you been following since June? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far over the course of ALL of your studies?
3) Since last June, on what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Rich,

Thanks for the prompt response.
I started studying back around October(was busy with work before that) and went through Manhattan Books for Quants and SC. For CR i went through CR Bible and to improve my RC i read around 3-4 articles from NYTimes daily. I have solved all the GMAT offical books questions and had a pretty decent correct ratio.

I have fixed my exam date on 25th Feb. Few days back i gave a Veritas Prep mock and scored around 650. There were few silly mistakes which i made because of having lost touch of solving questions on a set timer. I feel i could have touched 670-680 if those questions had been correct.
I am targetting a score of at least 720 and have kept ISB as my primary target.
The remaining days that I have I plan to study 2-3 hours daily on weekdays and 5-6 hours on weekends. So that would come around 25 hours per week. I have started solving questions from the GMAT club question bank and i check the solutions after every attempt.
What corrections do you think should I make in my approach ?

Hi rishabhshreyas14,

Based on your last message, I'm hoping that you confirm a couple of details about your recent studies:

1) You've taken just 1 practice CAT since this past October.
2) You scored less than 650 (but within a few Quant and Verbal Scaled Score points of how you scored on your Official GMAT back in June).

If there were other CATs, then it would help to know those other score results (as they would help to point out patterns in your performances).

GMAC has publicly stated that the Official Score that you earn on Test Day is within +/- 30 points of actual ability. Assuming a similar 'swing' in how your CATs function, your recent CAT score result - along with your Official Score - shows that you essentially performed the same each time (about 640 +/- a few points). You handle certain aspects of the GMAT consistently well, but you also make certain consistent mistakes. Raising a 640 to the point that you can consistently score 720+ will likely require at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study - and you'll have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. Thankfully, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train to score at a higher level.

From the information that you have provided, it's not clear what you are going to do differently in this next phase of your studies. If you continue to just work through practice questions in the same ways that you did before, then you will likely earn the same general score result. There are ways to improve on your current Score, but you're going to have to train to 'see' (and respond to) the GMAT in new ways.

1) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi rishabhshreyas14,

Regarding prep courses, in addition to seeking advice in this thread, take a look at the GMAT Club reviews for the best quant and verbal courses, and also read through some GMAT success stories to see what materials have worked well for other test-takers.

You also may find it helpful to read this article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

Good luck!
