Ok Guys, I am back with some update. I am done with the mgmat advanced quant including the 15 Sets( 150 X 700+ level questions)given at the end of the book . A must do for those scoring around 45 + and want to take their score to 49/50. The book discusses some advanced tactics and strategies which are very useful esp for the difficult questions. I won't recommend the book to those having current level below 45.
Took a gmatclub quant test M07 to gauge my performance and got 32 correct out of 37( with two silly mistakes) Also took MGMAT CAT-3 and scored 50 ( 10 errors), Though the errors are more but the questions thrown were mostly 700+ level questions with some of them as difficult as mgmat challenge problems. The assessment sheet of the test shows a good thing that from question number 12 onwards, the percentile didn't drop beyond 92 %.
So, the conclusion is that the advanced book has given the much needed push from 48 to 50 in MGMAT CATs. i just hope it works for the actual exam also.
Will be doing the jeff challenge sets now and hopefully these advanced tactics will be useful there also.

You are already Bunuel's fan's that's a good start . Solve GMAT Prep Question Pack1 all 200 Quant problems, flag all the problems where you are taking more than 2.5 min and for these topics solve the 700 Level questions from the PS/DS Directory on GMAT Club.

Ok guys, I was off from studies for some time and now I'm back with the committment that i will give the CAT in a month's time. Yesterday and today I gave two mGMAT CATs ( 4 and 5) and scored 50 and 51 respectively. In MGMAT 5 , the pool was throwing 600-700 level PS and 700- 800 level DS question probably beacuse i am good in PS and have already consumed all the questions in the previous CATs.
Now, I'm in two minds whether to go for the balance 15 gmatclub tests , last 50 questions of OG and 10 sets of Jeff( challenge ones) or to simply do the review of gmatclub tests that i have done so far and the last 50 questions of OG, leaaving the jeff sets totally. I'm very much comfortable with quant as of now, however, verbal still needs to be addressed more. I'm currently scoring around V- 40 in the last three MGMAT tests and i think still there is scope for improvement.
Any advise?

Ok guys, I'm back and this time to do the things differently. Per my time plan, I would be allotting about 30% of the time to quant and 70% to verbal.
Three things that i intend to do differently in quant:-
1) Follow the logical approach rather than the traditional mechanical approach of solving problems.
2) Filter the concept topics in terms of strengths and weaknesses and lay more stress on weaknesses. Practice less and review more by maintaining an error log.
3) Self-Discipline. ( not to loose momentum in between)
Although my major focus is on verbal, however, i think i still can push quant from 49 to 51 without any major efforts. I will keep this thread moving till my retake.
Cheers
