Hello Ladies and Gents,

So I did try the GMAT back in December of 2011 and ended up with a 610 (UGH!) ... Q was 48 and V was 25 (Jeeeeez .. how da heck did that happen?!)

I've been preparing for GMAT for quiet a while .. .I haven't been consistent with it! I studied on and off due to work, private life, and bla bla!

But anyways .. I've been really serious for the past couple of days and started from scratch . I took the GMAT Prep 1 and scored a 670 (Q47 , V35). Also, yesterday I took one MGMAT test (Q43, V35) to see where I'm at.

So I'm generally good at math and not worried about the Q that much. I just need to review my stuff and a minimum of 48 (aiming for a 50 this time) is guaranteed. I'm also reading the advanced Quant book from MGMAT (let's hope it helps ...)

As for the Verbal, I think I know all the basics but those 700-800 questions sometimes get me. I think my biggest issue is pacing the test and timing. I looked at the MGMAT test that I took yesterday and up until question 27, I was at 99% (3 mistakes!) .. but I remember looking at the clock and panicking, which totally screwed my focus up and I ended up with a 35 score! At question 27 I was lagging the MGMAT target cumulative time by 5 mins.

So here's my plan :

Take one full length test every other day until April 9th ( 2 down - 6 more to go) ... Spend the days in the middle reviewing my mistakes and focusing on trouble spots (eg. do more questions on Modifiers (meaning) from SC)

I was hoping to get some feedback from you guys. I took time off from work till April 9th. From the 9th till the 21st, I can spend 2-3 hours studying during weekdays and all day during the one weekend in the middle.

Am I going down the right path? Any input is appreciated.

Sounds like you are doing all the right things! Keep up the hard work and the rigorous schedule. Make sure to take all practice tests timed and with AWA. You probably don't HAVE to take all 6 tests you are planning on taking. One every three days, with review of concepts and questions on off days might even help a little more.
