Beat The Gmat 60 day schedule

Post Sat Jul 04, 2015 2:29 am
Hi,

I "tried" to follow the the 60 day beat the gmat schedule, i covered the maths part, first (24 days) but then i am stuck at the verbal, it starts with Sentence correction and there is alot to memorize as per the Manhattan books listed in this schedule (idioms chapter is where i lost my mind),

i need 3 quick tips:

1. how to avoid this roadbloack and proceed with verbal preparation (i am finding the mahattan sentence correction book very boring, there is just to much to memorize and everything other rule has an exception), need your advise

2. Is there anyone who followed the beat the gmat schedule religiously for 60 days? if so, could you please share any info on whether this is all we need before jumping up to the battle ground or is there anything else which should be covered.

3. I have been dragging out things since past 6 months so not sure how much i remember from past but what will be a realistic date to book a GMAT, I heard that booking the gmat will help in getting aligned and studying systematically

P.S - I am going the self prep way and using manhattan guides and video course as reference.

Regards,
Gauz

Thanks Dave,

your note regrading idioms really helped, i have resumed my verbal preparation (starting with Day 23 just to revise what i missed), I will keep what you said about prioritizing things in mind going forward.

It's important to prioritize when you're preparing for the GMAT, and attempting to memorize a long list of idioms should not be a priority. Here is GMAC's statement on idioms: http://www.beatthegmat.com/idioms-and-sentence-correction-a-message-from-gmac-t92022.html

Anytime you get bogged down in a given area, check here to see if that area is important. If it is, someone will help provide clarification. If it isn't, move on to more important subject areas.
