Hi all,
Ha Finally the countdown has begun have only 3 days left for the D day.I will be writing down here what i will be doing for the next 3 days so if you fell i should do something more please chip in your views.

Exam date 29th July time 1.15 pm

26th july saturday
Have decided to solve a GMAT club verbal challenger in the morning.
Then in the afternoon i will giving a GMATprep test.(wont be writing essays)
In the evening i will try to get some practise CR and SC questions(have planned to solve 50 each)

And analyze all the mistakes i do............though i dont think that will matter right now.

Yesterday i gave GMATprep test it was not very good 650(49 quant and 30 verbal).I think the main issue was planning of time as i had to rush the last 18 questions in verbal sections with just 15 mis left.

1 more thing i thought that if your first 20 ques are correct your score is going to be in higher 30. As the gmat prep i gave out of first 25 qestions i got only 3 wrong 1st one was the 10 then 18 and then 23. but after that due to lack of time i had to forward all the questions so was no point in tinking about them................. so it is not a good stratergy to give an excess ammount of time to the first 20 questions...........

what i suggest is doing some soft practice and reviewing question you did wrong.

On test day, I plan to do 10 soft questions for each question type to warm up in the morning

Apurva,All the best. You will do well

One question : Are GMAT club verbal challengers same as Verbal challenges(v01,v02,v03,v04)on the Gmatclub tests?

apurva, I would suggest, try to glance through the rules from the MGMAT SC book. I am not sure which area you need improvement on the verbal, but SC is something that can boost your score even the last day as long as you know the rules.
Keep up the good work on th Quant. Also, as Allen mentioned, during the break, talk to yourselves- modifiers, idioms, parallelism, weeken, strengthen, etc....... Just to warm up before verbal

Good luck on your test. Hope to see a 700+
