Hi all,

I finally got around to taking a practice GMAT exam, one of those offered through MBA, and scored a 650. As I would have guessed going in, I scored pretty poorly on quant and relatively better on verbal. I skimmed through the IR section and didn't take the writing portion on the practice test. This score is in line with a 640 I received a year ago on a practice test so I believe this to be a fair starting point for me.

Scores:
Quant: 39
Verbal: 40
IR: 8

I am hoping to stumble on a study plan (and corresponding set of materials) that favors quant over verbal, and is relatively explicit in what to cover. Ideally, i'd like to follow a 2-3 month study plan broken out by day/week. The variety of materials to choose from is pretty overwhelming so insight into the most prescriptive study aids and plans would be super helpful!

Thanks everyone and I'm happy to provide additional information if it would be helpful.

Hi Sean518,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. 3 months is good enough to improve your score. It's a good thing that you have taken a GMATPREP Mock. You now know your weaknesses and can work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. You need to work on solidifying your base and clearing your concepts. 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.

You can also use MGMAT guides for your preparation. MGMAT guides are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. 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 a 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.

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.
