Hey guys,

I have been preparing for the GMAT for two months now (started on 1st August). Until now, I have completed Quant and Verbal from the standard Manhattan prep guides. Apart from that, I have completed the OG'18 for quant and verbal respectively. After the first round of practice, I stand at (from OG'18):

PS Medium 86%
PS Hard 84% (Corrected my silly calculation mistakes for a few questions)

DS Medium 82%
DS Hard Did not attempt

RC Medium 77%
RC Hard 56% (By far my weakest link)

CR Medium 80%
CR Hard 70%

SC Medium 85%
SC Hard 76%

I plan on taking the GMAT in December (haven't book the date yet). I now plan to start taking tests and reviewing the errors I made, along with starting off with Advanced Quant to boost my PS and DS performances respectively. However, due to college exams; starting Monday, I will not be able to study regularly till 5th November. After that, I will be beginning with Advanced Quant and tests. Until then, in whatever time I can manage, I plan on reading GMAT Club's Grammar book and flashcards.

What are the loopholes in my plan, and how can I improve upon them? What are some of the things I can do in the interim to not lose touch and not mess up the test scores? As things stand, I believe that I can improve my Verbal scores by paying more attention to details. Should I consider buying the Advanced Verbal Guide from GMAC?
Also, where should I squeeze in time for IR and AWA?

Help and suggestions would be appreciated!

(PS: I am aiming at achieving as high a GMAT score I can).

I'd say take a GMATPrep exam to see where you are (even though I'm not an expert), the percent number of questions might not be the best indicator as it doesn't make differences between topics (e. g. Inequalities, fractions) ..
