GMAT Prep: Week 4

Posted on Apr 20, 2011

This week we will focus only on Quants. Our goal would be to finish Manhattan Number Properties and Manhttan Geometry. The idea is to somehow manage to finish the theory, even if you are not able to understand everything at the first go. There is lot to cover in Quants and the best way I feel is to brush up, rather than dig deep inside the material. Quants and SC are the two areas where you got to know the “formulae”. So after SC we will try to finish Quants as soon as possible. We will keep the Word Problems for later because that is a bit tricky. So let’s start. Remember this week can be very tough on the “non-quants” people, but go...

GMAT Prep: Week 3

Posted on Apr 19, 2011

If everything is going fine with your preparation and we have been honest and hard working, we should be pretty comfortable with the GMAT format by now. By now you have a fair idea of all types of questions that are asked on the GMAT. Also you know what your strengths and weaknesses are. This week we will take it up a notch higher. We will dive in depth into Sentence Correction (SC). In fact we will finish the Manhattan’s Sentence Correction book, which is a MUST buy. We will also solve the corresponding set of problems from the Official Guide. Manhattan’s SC has a list of OG questions at the end of each chapter which are relevant to that topic, very...

GMAT Prep: Week 2

Posted on Apr 13, 2011

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...

GMAT Prep: Week 1

Posted on Apr 12, 2011

In the first week we will get to know the Verbal Section on the GMAT. For this you will need to buy a 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. If you could take out 4 hrs, that will be awesome. I will from here on refer to a 3-4 hours sitting as a Session. See my earlier post on how to set up...
