I am Moyo from Nigeria.

I work in supply chains as a demand/supply planner (3 yrs), though I have a background in Pharmacy, which is not so much a discipline strong in quants.
I have taken the first GMAT Prep test and flunked it (470 Q35, V20). My target score is 700.
I am confused as to what approach to follow. The volume of information here is mind-numbing, like in terabytes.
Paid for e-GMAT online course, bought the OG 2016 and paid for my GMAT exam in exactly 105 days from today.

I am thinking to go through the OG to start with (Quants for 3 weeks, verbal 3 weeks), then start to polish the rough edges with the e-GMAT course.

I need help to navigate the quagmire.
I am just confused.

Hey mokarios, Welcome to the GMAT Club!

You can check out the study plans section to see if one of the study plans here - explore a little and see what suits you. Based on your GPrep scores it looks like you need to go through the basics and get up to speed on the quant and verbal basics. For quant, you can start off by going through E-GMAT (since you already have the subscription) and aid it by reading the appropriate topic in the quantitative mega thread here

For verbal, I would suggest you start by going through the E-GMAT verbal course and solve questions here on the forum. Do not solve a ton load of OG questions before you have your basics clear as these official questions are limited and you do not want to run out of these for later in your prep.

I would recommend you take the GPrep free exam #2 in a couple of weeks to keep a track of progress. 105 days is a lot of time to improve and you already know the amount of info available to go through :-) Better start early then wait till the end.

All the best!

Regards,
Gladi

Also, one more useful trick would be to "follow" popular users of the club as they would be posting and commenting on interesting discussions. You can learn a lot by reading the explanations written by Experts who have written thousands of posts by merely following them and regularly checking notifications.

To follow, simply press the follow button appearing under the profile ( either to the left of the post or at the profile page)

OG questions are the gold questions. You certainly should start them after finishing the entire course of e-gmat and the scholaranium they provide. Also, Remember that you need to spend more time on reviewing the OG question and analyzing the pattern. It's also important that you give all six GMAT prep mock in actual GMAT condition and analyze your strengths and weaknesses while reviewing each mock. Goodluck :)

I have done the OG diagnostic tests on the e-GMAT and got the following scores for Verbal: SC-44%, CR-53%, RC-82%.
and for Quant - Arithmetic - 59%, Algebra- 37%.
At crossroads on where to start. I think I should perfect my verbal, seeing as the 2 sections I am weakest are can/will yield to methodical strategies, unlike RC, which is where my strength seems to be.
I would appreciate your suggestions.

mokarios - I am unaware of the egmat accuracy levels but I would recommend you to do a basic overview of all the material and then appear for GMAC GPREP #1. It is one of two free tests provided by gmac.

For quant I would highly recommend the GMAT math book of GMAT club(which is available for PDF download! ) to see relevant topics and then going through the quantitative megathread. ( All these you can find as sticky topics in the quantitative forum - tag me if you are unable to find anything)

Both are absolutely free and have worked wonders for hundreds and thousands of students in the past.

For verbal egmat is the best and it would make sense to follow the course outlined by them on their website. Make sure you solve a lot of official guide questions once you become comfortable.

Last but not the least - make maximum use of this forum which offers tons of good practice and advice from experts. :-)

As always, feel free to tag or PM me.

All the best.

Regards,
Gladi
