With about 3 weeks left, I am starting my INSANE study schedule. I have been trying to follow my rigorous schedule, I have been using The Economist’s GMAT Tutor and I am about 78% completed. Even though my goal is 150 hours of studying, I have only been averaging about 10 hours a week (I need to kick it up a notch).
Results of my second practice test (OG)
730!!!!!! I took my second practice test and got a 730 (Q47, V44)! I am ecstatic with my Verbal score. I have been concentrating exclusively on Verbal the last two weeks, and it has paid off. I don’t think I have ever broken 40 on Verbal!!!!!
Breaking down my second test
Stupid mistakes on math let me down (got to remember to stay focused!). My Verbal misses were split between SC and CR (4 wrong in SC and 3 wrong in CR). If I can build up my stamina and endurance, I should be able to continue improving and get me to my finish line.
My action plan going forward
Now, my focus will be continued concentration on Verbal and also boost my testing endurance over the next 3 weeks. I will be utilizing Magoosh’s great question bank and video explanations to get me there. I also purchased the new OG GMAT 2015 (check out my top 6 key resources for the GMAT post)!!!!
I will also be ramping up my studying. Averaging 10 hours a week is not how a top MBA applicant does it!!!!
