i was a part of the thread "aiming for Jan 2010"...but then the thread got too inactive, while my studying got more active! i hope to be able to give it by dec '09 now...the following are my last 2 relevant (and slightly edited) posts...14th Sept:
hi...so, done with all the review sections from PR, except for CR (cos it's kinda boring)...
I don't think the math review in PR is good enough. I don't know how insufficient it is, but I'm definitely going to do OG's math review soon. Even SC doesn't seem enough. The book itself says that if u shud def look at a more extensive grammar review from a grammar book! For Math review, I also printed the Manahattan GMAT flashcards...may use them too.
As of now, i'm going to try reading some more abt CR from PR tonight. And tomm morn, goin to give the "warm up test" (60 mins) and see which practice bin I should start with.
Any idea abt where one can find the best math review from?
So, I did the warm-up test today (60 mins - 20 qs. from V & M each)
I got 16/20 in math...and 13/18 in verbal (didn't have time left to ans. last 2)...
Although i haven't been able to analyse what I did wrong yet (am in office!), but...I did not expect to do better at math than verbal! verbal is my strength, but I think my speed of goin thru the RC was horrible (even after i used the method from PR!)...the PR method IS still pretty good...I just need to do it FASTER...and yes, i do generally read slowly, so I have to increase my conc/speed when i read now...
Also a lil worried abt my verbal accuracy (5 wrong out of 18!
)...will go back and see what the hell I was doing!
I realise I should relax a lil...it's the first time I tried out a test, just started studyin for GMAT, actual exam is far, far away...but still!
Anyway...still waiting for a response abt where to do math review from!
ps. still have to finish reading the CR review from PR (3 types of qs. down, 5 more to go.................)
