Hi,

After a delay of 2 years (approx), I now want to start with serious GMAT prep. In these 2 years, I have started with my preps thrice but could never complete it owing to hectic work schedule. But this time now, I want to adamant on giving the exam and aim to give my first shot in April 2019.

When I started and without any practice, my first Mock gave a result of 520 (pretty sad i know) but then i went onto to brush up my basics and enrolled for e-gmat curricular as well. I practiced through GMAC OC (sans strategy) and after 3/4 mocks I reached a score of 610 (though cant stay i'll start with that as I haven't practiced for more than 3/4 months).

My problem at the moment is, I do not understand where to pick things up from now and how to go about it. What strategy should I follow to have an effective GMAT plan. Though I am quitting my old job now and joining a new one, I need to make sure that I do enough this time to give the exam.

Is there anyone who could help me with the formulation of the strategy?

TIA

Brush up your concepts quickly and go through basic and medium level questions. Keep skipping alternate questions, while you increase level of difficulty with every question, until you reach to the point where you accuracy falls between 60-70. At this point, attempt most of the questions, and don't just solve questions but try to learn concepts and approach.
This way, you'll imorove quickly.

Then you'll need to build a strategy and timings for exam. Practice on lots of mock tests for that.

Remember, GMAT do not check your English rather your thinking ability and approach. Try to make sense in SC and CR. That'll be sufficient for verbal.

Please give kudos.
