Hi

I have been using this platform for a while, although Gmat Club is great, for me ( i am sure many others) the material here is a lot to go through. You can easily be lost in so many questions, then so many brands offering their take on Gmat like ( Veritas, Magoosh, Manhattan, Gmat Prep) etc. My approach is ( Which I am hoping experts and veterans will correct) that I go for Official guide questions topic wise. First How solid is this approach? secondly, will this ensure a 700 + score? And how accurate are these big names on Gmat club like Veritas, e GMAT etc in their authenticity with relevant Gmat questions especially when it comes to Quant.

Kindly express your views, it would be really helpful.

Hi mtk10,

Unfortunately, there's no "guaranteed way" to train to score 700+. That score is approximately the 90th percentile, meaning that 90% of Test Takers will never score that high on the Official GMAT, regardless of how long they study or the number of times they take the Exam. Over the last month, you've seemed focused on finding the "right" practice questions, but what you really need is proper training material and guidance - so that you can learn all of the Tactics, patterns and little 'secrets' to the GMAT. Working through lots of practice questions isn't the most effective way to gain all of that knowledge, so you might want to consider adjusting how you're approaching this process.

Before I can offer you and additional advice, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Player, Before dropping large coin, I am getting up to speed with "used" books from eBay and thrift stores. I've also taken advantage of over 100 hours of free video instruction from various vendors. The older OG's have a lot of good practice questions. Many prep websites offer video solutions to some of these OG questions. Once I get 560 in practice tests, then I'll consider dropping some C's. Peace...

Going through the official material keeps you really close to the target . I would suggest one can go fro EMpower or EGMAT for preparation support. As a student my maxiumum use of Manhattan and veritas was only for Test series

Have you tried Gmat club tests ? If so how well did it help you for both quant and verbal?

And yea i have heard good things about e gmat, but i invested in veritas which i felt is very average in terms of prep for verbal.

GMAT club tests can only be tested if you have prepared well with OG, They have a certain level and they cant be handled withoout prep. I used E gmat for Verbal and it helps. Quant i think GMAT club's material is enough.. In case of any doubts you can post here generally quant moderators give good replies, so need to spend too much.

Thanks

if you find it useful do give Kudos
