May 9th test - HOW MANY PRACTICE TESTS SHOULD I TAKE?  [#permalink]

Hello,

I've been studying for about 4.5 hours a day for the past couple months. I have a pretty adhoc verbal routine involving studying grammar and taking tons of practice questions.

I've been using Target Test Prep for my quant and it's been amazing so far, although it takes a very long time before I'm at a place where I can take practice tests. I plan to complete the entire "Learning" portion of the test within the next two weeks or so and take TTP's two full-length review tests.

I'm targeting at first practice GMAT on April 16, which is 23 days before my actual exam on May 9th.

My question is: how many practice tests should I take within the 23 day period before my actual exam? TTP recommends 6 practice tests but they said I should take them a full week apart (which is obviously impossible in my situation).

Do you think I should just take 4 tests (giving about 4 days in between each test) or should I take all 6 giving 3 days between each test?

Lastly, is it okay to take my last practice test 2 days before the actual GMAT? (so take it on May 7, have May 8th to review and get mentally ready, and take actual test on May 9)

Thank!

Hello 2019gmat2019 ...welcome to the community.

First of all, doing practice test one doesn't learn any content. But, at the same time ... this helps to get the exam day feeling, which is also very important. So the required number of practice tests depends on you. It may be 1 or 10. I would do 1 full length each week, simulating exam condition as much as I can. I would also closely monitor my fail points and try not to repeat them at the next test.
Definitely consider GMAC's official tests, question bank, and other official questions as well.

All the best.
