Since you do not have a lot of time left and your verbal score is quite low,I think it'd be best if you go for a few tutoring sessions. A good tutor would provide you a structured framework to tackle the issues that you are facing in various areas. Studying on your own may or might not help so take ...

You're right. I still don't know why the GMAT has been so conservative about including high difficulty level questions on the OG so far. Possibly because the GMAC doesn't want to reveal their best questions to the candidates and also because they want to cater to all types of students Yes, that's e...

First of all, Congratulation! Can you give us all an insight on what your study schedule looked like? How many hours a day is too much and what disciplinary actions did you take when you failed to follow your schedule? Thank again! The first thing that I did was that I didn't push myself to study o...

Pain,Hardwork & 8 months-That's what went to achieve 760

Dude, good job. You beat my 760 by 10 points, tied my Verbal, beat me by 1 point on the quant. You have some serious intellectual mojo. BTW, you are now eligible for MENSA. Savor it, brother. It is a small club. Mentioning MENSA memership would look quite interesting in the essays..Speaks volumes a...

While taking the practice tests, did you always take the full tests or did you use to skip AWA and IR ? What is the use of full length test when you would just skip 2 sections in that ? When I am taking full length test I make sure that I attempt all the four sections in one go-otherwise it doesn't...

Thanks :) I got the Economist and Scientific American from my office library :)
I find scientific american boring to read..I instead follow The New York Times as it has more engaging and relevant articles I think.

Aristotle PS & DS Booster- Good for practice as OG13 Math questions are too easy for practice and MGMAT books didn’t have many practice questions. How many questions are there in PS and DS Boosters and what is their difficulty level like ? I'm hoping the questions in these boosters would be more ...

Congratulations...How many hours did you prepare for the GMAT ? My GMAT is scheduled in Feb and though I've been focusing on Verbal and Quant and haven't prepared for IR at all till now I'm also in the same boat. I haven't done anything on the IR part. Will keep a week aside for that though. Really...
