GMAT Prep: Week 5

This week is going to be another toughie. Again for non-quants people it might seem impossible, but its not. The idea is to go through the material once. Another thing is that on GMAT you are expected to solve one sum in less than 2 minutes. These chapters have typically 15-20 problems and so it is very doable. You can take proper notes when you solve the OG problems. And again the schedule is made assuming you will study for only 4 hours daily. Some days you can push a bit more and clear the backlogs. This week you will try to finish two strategy guides: Manhattan Equations, Inequalities, and VIC’s and Manhattan Fractions, Decimals, & Percents. The former is tougher, but the latter should be relatively easy. If you get stuck at something, do not waste time understanding it, ask some one. Ask me, but do not waste time and lag. All the best. If you can make it through this week, the rest is going to be easy. For people with quants background, this is going to be a cake walk. Go, go, go!

  • 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.

SUMMARY

So this week you again  finished two entire Quants strategy guides and solved corresponding problems from OG. Again the trick is to cover the topics and get to know what they are. You do not need to delve deep in any of the topics. If you are actually putting in the suggested time, it should be doable. Be fast when you are reading, solving. Many people get in the habit of doing everything very slowly. That will not work. Also do not worry if you think that some topics were not very clear. We will again revisit the concepts in Recovery phase (Phase 3). For now revise everything properly. Make cheat sheets and flashcards. And do not get stressed. Enjoy!
