This week we will finish the core preparation phase of the GMAT. We will focus on finishing the last part in Quants an then gear up for a mock test on the last day (Sunday) of the week. This is again going to be a tricky week if you are not the quant joc types. But after so many drills, I am expecting you to be much better. If you are already comfortable with math, you can utilize some of your time to revise other areas and prepare for the test! So let’s get started! Books you will need Manhattan GMAT Set of 8 Strategy Guides The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 12th Edition DAY 50 GOAL: Finish 2 chapters from Manhattan Word...

And if you consider the relative toughness of SC, CR and RC questions, the recommended time to solve problems from each category is: 50 SC questions per hour, 7 Passages or approx 42 questions from RC per hour and 38 questions from CR per hour.

Read MoreThis 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...
