Last week we got a solid idea of how the Verbal Section looks like on the GMAT. This week we will do the same for the Quants section. For this you will refer to the same standard Kaplan GMAT or Princeton GMAT book. The sections in these books are fairly easy and the number of problems are also less. So they are perfect books to begin with. I had a Kaplan GMAT for myself. In two weeks we will finish the entire week. First week will be devoted to Verbal and second week to Quants and a diagnostic test. As I said earlier I am expecting you to at least study for 3 hours at a stretch daily. Ladies and gentlemen, put on your seat belts!
DAY 8 + DAY 9 + DAY 10 + Day 11
- Four Sessions of 4 hours on each day (16 hours)
- Take up the book and finish off the Quants section: Fundamental Concepts, examples, word problems, straight Math problems and Data Sufficiency problems + analysis).
- Apply the same methodology as you did last week while studying. Once again: Studying in blocks and keeping a journal/tracker.
- 3.5 hours or whatever is the prescribed time for the test and 1.5 hours to analyse. 5 Hours total.
- Take the paper based test at the end of the book.
- Analyze all the answers –> Go through the explanations –> Make notes.
- Write down the silly mistakes on the post-its.
- Also write down your experiences after you took your first test.
- Do the rough work on the blank sheets and write down the answers in the diary/journal.
- Put proper dates, heading, book’s name + Section name on the top of your journal entry.
- Write down the score and the accuracy percentage.
- Analyse each answer with utmost care and keep jotting down any stuff which you have learnt (there has to plenty of them). Make a habit of taking down notes.
- Write down all the silly mistakes you did on the post-its and finally, stick them on the black chart paper which you should stick to the wall in front of you.
DAY 13 + DAY 14
- Revise everything you learned in the last two weeks.
- 4 Sessions of 16 hours total.
- Day 13 and Day 14 (weekends) –> 2 Sessions each day of 4 Hours = 8 hours each day
- Go through all your notes, post-its, trackers and learn from your mistakes.
- Look back at your week. Catch up if you need to.
- Talk to me about your progress.
- Leave a comment on the website after you have finished one WHOLE book!
Feel good that you finished one book completely and took one full length test.
