Today’s date: 3/24
Exam date: 3/29
GMAT Prep Test 1: 620 (3/22)
GMAT Prep Test 2: taking it on (3/25)

I’ve finished the Manhattan prep books and aiming for a score in the range of 620 - 640.

Should I take an additional prep test on 3/26 or 3/27, or should I just completely take off the last 2 days (3/27 and 3/28) and do some minor review (45 minutes per day).

Thank you.

I wouldn't normally feel that you need to take another practice test 2 days before your GMAT, but it will come down to what you think is most important right now: (a) focusing on the actual exam or (b) becoming more comfortable with the exam taking process.

Hi
In my opinion, you should review all the material that you have studied in the last few days. Analyze the tests, go through the error log and revise the formula/strategies.
Hope it helps.

IMO, you should not go for a test now. Reviewing all the topics and your notes, doing some mental exercises is good enough routine foe these 3-4 days. Giving mocks at this moment may take your zeal away, if your score drops. Do some meditation, watch some motivational videos, and make sure that your eyes and brain are not fatigued.

Hi all,

Thank you for your advice. I took the second practice test today and with better time management scored a 650. As you all mentioned, all go over the all the errors from both practice tests and review the flash cards i have created throughout the last 2 months. ( I have about 200 flashcards). Will also continue to eat lots of berries and get my 8 hours of sleep. Hopefully will be able to replicate the results on test date.

I'm applying to Eller, Simon (Rochester), and maybe Illinois University.

Thank you,
Roham

Good to see that you'll get some down time before the actual test. All the best :-)

Took the test today and scored a 650.

I also have a 3.68 GPA and about will have 32 months of work experience by August of 2018.

How would you guys rate my chances of getting accepted to Simon, Eller, or USC in the last round. I’m submitting my applications in 2-3 days.
