CAT review

by shahla » Sat Dec 14, 2013 10:30 am
dear all,

how long should it take it to review the quant and verbal sections of the complete test?

I normally review each correct answer's explanation and note down any areas i need to improve on in an excel sheet. I do that for the questions I answer correct and un correct as well. For questions I answered wrong, I try to solve the problem once again and see if I can get it right the second time.

This process takes two days most of the times I review a CAT. I am doing it right ? is there a better way to review?

Hi Shahla,

No, I don't think you are doing it wrong -- I just think that you are being extremely thorough and making sure you know why you answered a question incorrectly (or correctly). The only time you should worry about timing is when you are practicing your test taking skills and working to develop a solid timing strategy for the GMAT. In fact, we just wrote two blog posts on this subject, so if you want to spend time developing your timing skills, check out these posts:
