Hi,

Request your thoughts on my study plan below. I have already started with 800Score.com and my test date is Oct 22nd 2009. I am average on both Quant and Verbal and hence have decided to concentrate on Quant as i can really try and improve the score there. (Verbal is brutal but still will definitely work on that too). Hope the data is sufficient :-)

800Score.com - (All sections except AWA) online course and 5 tests (Completing it by July 15th) 4 full length with AWA
OG 12th edition & review Quant and review Verbal - Completing it by August 22nd
Brushing through Kaplan and Princeton - Completing it by mid september
Take full length tests until Oct 18th

Suggestions welcome.

With Regards,
MBAPlus+

I have not had much experience with 800Score - did not realize they had one. We keep a list of those and reviews here: gmat-prep-courses-classes-reviews-ratings-and-comparison-78451.html

You don't need to cover both Kaplan and Princeton - just one book is enough. Technically you should not need to cover a prep class and then Kaplan or Princeton. The prep course should be enough in itself. If you re doing both, may skip the class if you still have an option.

About the rest, many people here use specialized Manhattan GMAT books for RC, CR, SC or Powerscore series
Manhattan RC
Manhattan CR/ Powerscore CR
Manhattan SC/ Powerscore SC

There are also many specialized books for math.

Have you taken a practice test such as GMATPrep? It is hard to evaluate the Plan if your current level is unknown.

Hey BB,

Thanks for your perspective. I am halfway through princeton and completed 800score.com - math and my opinion is that 800score.com gives a good idea about basics and princeton gives better drills.

I intend to complete both of these and then give my first GMATPrep. I am a little rusty with numbers as all these years (10 years of work exp) i am drugged with excels and calculators at my work.

Thanks again and i will complete my GMATPrep and come back to you with my score.

Thanks and Regards,

Sounds like you work with quant on a daily basis and HP12C is part of your battle gear. If your verbal area is a little weak, I suggest reading the editorial sections of NYT, FT, WSJ, and The Economist. Read as if you will have to answer GMAT type question afterwards. Since it is at the end of the test, verbal is extra tough IMO. Stamina is key. Good luck..

If you still feel somewhat rusty with numbers, you can give these two books a try:

Kaplan Math Foundations - first few chapters will be offensive to your intellect but it gets better - (Book just released in June 2009)
Kaplan Math Workbook - just math drills with some background info
Princeton Review 1012 questions - 550-650 targeted practice questions (book just released in June 2009)
