I'm taking the GMAT in late May, and I'm shooting for 700+.

Tell me if these materials and plan are OK.

1 Hour Verbal/2 Hours Math - Week 1
2 hours Math/1 Hour verbal - Week 2
Then it just keeps flip flopping...

My materials are Manhattan SC, OG11, Kaplan GMAT for CR, and 4GMAT.com's ebooks for all 3 subjects of math.

First of all, should I start out with a diagnostic test, and if so, where?
How often should I take practice GMAT tests, and where are more free ones besides the Challenges and the official GMAT site?

Will I be ready? The only practice test I've taken was from my Kaplan book and I BOMBED it. Like mid 500 territory. But I've read the Kaplan test are tough.

Help me out guys, I'll give you all sorts of feedback as I'm going and will let you know how it goes when I finish.

-Sam

I think you have a good plan.

I studied at a very comfortable pace for over a year (1-2 hours a week) and I scored 750+

I would definitely use the diagnostic materials to really understand your weaknesses, and address them. I think I see way too many people spend lots of time on things they already know because its easy and they can tell themselves they're studying x hours a week.

Also have you been a good test-taker in the past? If so, then you'll have alot of adrenaline during the test and you won't have to worry about the length of the test. (This is the case for me). If not, then you should spend a few saturdays taking practice tests so you can get used to the mental fatigue of the exam.

I'm a very good test taker, the pressure really doesn't get to me, so I will take care of my weaknesses first.
