Hello,

I gave GMAT in Dec,2017 and scored 660(Q49 V30). I had prepared for CAT,2017 for 2 months and with that preparation
I gave GMAT with another 15-20 days of preparation. Following are the study material I followed-
1) Official guides
2) Manhattan guides for CR,SC and RC

I am targeting 740+ in my next attempt in around April-May. I can give around 2-3 hours per day.
Colleges I am targeting - ISB, IIMA, IIMB, IIMC.

Looking for a detailed study plan.

P.S. - I need some major improvement in Verbal

Hi
You can enroll for the Gmatclub self study plan. It contains a good mix of theory and practice.
Alternatively, you can enroll for an online course. Some of the courses have very good reviews on Gmatclub such as E-gmat, Empowergmat, Economist gmat. Take a free trial before you enroll for any course. You can specifically take a course in Verbal too.

Hi neerughangas, which specific area in Verbal do you think, needs most improvement? Also, did you opt for ESR?

Hi

Learn the concepts tested on GMAT. After learning, practice your learned section with timed practice. You can also take quizzes to meet the pace of GMAT. 1 Month for learning concepts and 15 days of practice and same with the verbal. When completed all the concepts learning and handsome practice. Take full lenght CATs, know your estimated score. Analyze the result with Correct/incorrect questions, pacing analysis trace your mistakes and learn from them, make an error log to know your mistakes in the previously attempted questions

Good Luck

Hi neerughangas,

3 months is a good enough time to prepare for GMAT. It’s a good thing you have given GMAT once. You now know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for 3 months, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking an additional GMATPREP course. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ve ... 68383.html

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.
