With less than one left, I have ramped up my study schedule to 20 hours+. I have been trying to follow my rigorous schedule, I have been using The Economist’s GMAT Tutor and I am about 88% completed. Right now, I have logged about 104 hours (well short of my goal of 150 hours, unfortunately). I am hoping to log another 16 hours before my test on August 23, 2014.
Results of my third practice test (OG)
730. I took my second practice test and got a 730 (Q49, V40)! I am a little disappointed. With my huge focus on Verbal, I expected a raw score of 44 or 45. However, I am still pleased (even if my score isn’t as high as I would like).
Breaking down my second test
Sentence Correction killed me. Out of the 11 questions I missed, 7 of the incorrect answers were on Sentence Correction. I’m speechless.
My action plan going forward
Now, my focus will be continued concentration on Sentence Correction. I will be spending more time per question on incorrect questions while I review. It is imperative that I understand why I am answering those questions incorrectly, as well as internalizing the lessons learned in time for my test. 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)!!!!
