@prada There are different study plans at Magoosh. The advanced one is supposed to help you to get over 700 and it is 3 months long. The newest plan, which I followed last year from August to November, would be perfect for somebody who is already very close to 700, but wants to get to around 750. I...

Hey Andras, Congrats on the achievement. Quick question, what is the Magoosh for advanced students part? I don't recall seeing that on the dash board but this was a year ago. I really found Magoosh helped me get to around 600 but I found it lacking a little for people wanting to get to 700+. So Im c...

Hi prada, You can certainly proceed with your general study plan, but you'll likely have to make some adjustments later on (based on your future CAT results). As an aside, taking more than 1 CAT per week is generally NOT a good idea, so you should really take no more than 1 in that last week before...

Hi prada, One of the essential parts of properly training for the Official GMAT is taking realistic FULL-LENGTH CATs (with the Essay and IR sections) under test-like conditions. The 6 GMAC CATs are the most realistic ones available. There are also a number of third-party CATs that are reasonably ac...

Hey Guys, wouldn't the answer be A since the context and timing is clear? As in since the word BEFORE was used we can omit the HAD BEEN and use the normal WAS? I understood that using HAD BEEN is used when you want to clarify and distinguish between two tenses? I suspect that the subtle difference ...

##### 800 Score CAT

Hey Guys,

Just a quick question. I know there are a lot of free CAT out there, I was just wondering how the free 800S CAT is in terms of accuracy? I know that many of the reputable CATs give a decent estimation but cannot guarantee a score of course. thx

Hi prada, What is the source of this question? I ask because it appears to be a bastardized version of THIS question... http://www.beatthegmat.com/geometry-t280370.html ...but whoever copied it didn't seem to understand what the original question was really about. GMAT assassins aren't born, they'r...

In a square if you have a diagonal it splits the square into two 45-45-90 triangles. Thus with with just the measure of one side or of the diagonal you can find the other, or the squares area, etc. Now a diagonal in a rectangle splits the rectangle into two triangles down the middle too. Hence it s...
