Hi

Is it a good time to book gmat, i want to apply in R2,so thinking to take gmat by december 1st week. After gmat entire 1 month i want to focus on applications.

Last gmat mock score 520 Q43 V16, and target gmat score is 620- 640, i am targeting US bschools which are Public and beyond top 30.

Kindly tell me should i go ahead and book a gmat date? i am worried because if i delay i wont get any slot for december 1st week and i have to reduce my application time which i dont want.

I am confident that i can take Q to 45-46 but for verbal if i work through out next 45 days is it possible to reach V33-35? At present i have finsihed mgmat books, for quant i am studying from gc club forum and for verbal i have taken e-gmat course.

Kindly help me and also give me some study plan for verbal, how often should i test myself etc

Thank you

PlanetEarth,

Yes, first week of December is a good time to schedule. In the Western world, many spend the end of November (Thanksgiving weekend) preparing for the test - so the first week of December may be a popular time in some parts of the world. So make sure you book your slot. Most R2 deadlines are first week of January - so an early December test date will let you have a full month to prepare for your essays and get recommendations.

Hi Gmatpill

Really appreciate your help,but is it possible to jump 100 points from my present score in just 45 days??I have taken a mock again today 530 Q43 V19.

I have planned some material to use in this period..

Quant- [Atleast improve by 3 more points Q43 to Q46)

1-GC club test(ALL)
2- OG Quant review 2nd ed (Last 50-60)
3-Bunuel's signature
4-OG 12 Error Log review (Book is completed)
5-Gmat prep Quant compiled forum for PS and DS.

Verbal- (Atleast improve by 15 more points V19 to V34)

1- e-gmat complete
2- OG 12 Finish RC part
3- OG12 Error log review SC and CR
4- Complete SC grail,CR grail and RC grail(I have fair amount of idea on all sections, can finish each book in 4 to 5 days)
5- OG verbal 2nd review
6- Gmat prep compiled file for verbal.

In verbal CR is my strength with 80% accuracy, need to work on RC and SC.

Though the quantity of the material is not at all important, the idea is the learn as much as possible.

Again is it possible to get around 620-630?
