Hi riteshpatnaik,

Raising your score 120+ points in a month will be challenging, regardless of what materials you use and the number of hours that you study. The 'keys' to all of this are the flexibility in your thinking and your ability to adjust how you 'see' (and respond to) the GMAT. For the next month, if you simply work through lots of practice problems using the same methods that you used before, then you'll likely end up in the same general score range. To hit your goal score, you will have to learn and practice different Tactics, hone THOSE skills and then use them correctly on Test Day. As such, the more appropriate question is 'are you capable of changing your approach to this Exam in such a short timeframe?'

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

Hi riteshpatnaik,

Most people would not be able to complete that full Study Plan in a month, but I don't know you well enough to say whether YOU could or not. Even if you couldn't compete the full plan though, by learning and practicing the major Tactics you could improve a great deal.

Hi Rich,
What I meant was raising my score from Q34 to Q49 (not 50 or 51) and V40 (though decent maybe a V44- RC accuracy is abysmal 50%)in next 30 days. This is what I want to target.
