Looking for study buddies!

Post Thu Jul 21, 2016 7:44 am
Hi everyone Smile

I'm based in London and taking the 19th August sit. Aim for 700+.

I'm ok with quan part but can't deal with verbal properly as I'm a real slow-reader... (like I can get 27 right out of 30 CR questions but it'll take me one hour or more )

Anyone wants to study together please feel free to drop me a message!

PS I'm a 23yo girl who only bites when too much non-study topic during study.

Hi chochloe,

If you've been studying for just 2 weeks, then your pacing shouldn't even be a concern yet. Many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent, guided study before they hit their 'peak' performances, so it's understandable that you wouldn't quite be up to that level yet.

With your current Test Date, you have just 4 weeks remaining before your Official GMAT, so you really MUST take a FULL-LENGTH CAT (with the Essay and IR sections) sometime soon so that we can get a sense of your current skills, strengths and weaknesses. Without that score result, we have no way of knowing what you should actually be focusing on (and we have no idea how close you are to your goal score). Once you have that score result, you should post back here and we can talk about your studies going forward.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi chochloe,

I'm just starting to prep and looking for study buddies.

I'm using Magoosh & OG, and will probably get the Manhattan Prep stuff soon.

I'm going to start with with Quant, cover eacb topic and then hit Verbal.

Wanna connect?

Thanks
