The Second Attempt - 700 - New format w/ ESR  [#permalink]

Hi All,

Took another crack at it on 5/14/18, and scored a 700 - (Q43 / V42 / IR8). ESR attached.

This is technically above my last attempt of a 680, but I feel I underperformed in quant. So...I'll be retaking it in a month.

About a week ago I had a bit of a meltdown when I scored a 620 on a GMATPrep test. The next day I took another GMATPrep test and scored a 740 (Q48/V42). To me, this proves I'm capable of more than Q43.

I've gone through at every OG Quant question (both regular guide and Quant Review) at least once - many more than once (the mistakes.) I'm thinking about going through all of the questions I got wrong again so I can hone accuracy and speed. I can probably brush up on geometry a little bit, but I don't think working on foundational items will be of any use. I think I have a solid foundation, I'm fairly confident I just need to work on accuracy and speed when under pressure.

My plan is to do a GMATPrep test every weekend between now and the next test. During the week, I'm not sure if I should redo OG problems or if I should do some harder questions via GMATClub Quant quizzes.

Anyone else in this position? What would be the best use of my time?

Thank you for sharing new format ESR. I see that there is no big change in new format ESR.

I think that you should stick to OG and GMATPrep only. Quant tests from 3rd parties are too hard and they won't help you much to improve your Quant score since you are one month left.

Practice with GMATPrep is good. Unlike Verbal questions, Quant questions could be taken many times since you could find a lot of quant questions from many sources to practice. Thus, you could practice with GMATPrep as many times as you want.

You said that you have done all quant questions from OG? I mean every version of OGs? Oh, it means that you have done a lot of OG quant questions. Focus on your weakness fields and redo those questions on those fields isn't bad choice.

Thanks for the feedback! I've only done all of the quant problems in 2018 OG and Quant Guide at least once...many more than once. I'm sure I spilled over into other versions because on the go I would just do a forum question bank search for OG questions. I'm sure there is still value in re-doing the questions I previously got incorrect, so I will focus on that.

Should I just leave the GMATClub tests alone then? I was thinking about just doing random sets of 10 quizzes to expose myself to harder problems.

Thank you!

Attached are both Quant and Verbal subsection summaries - I think this is what you are looking for?
