One month study plan

Preparing for the GMAT in one month is almost like going on a crash diet. It requires undivided attention, focus and a lot of hard work. The reason why we begin with such a statement is because of the well-known fact that the required time to prepare for the GMAT is about 3 months. So the first thing that one needs to understand is that preparing for the GMAT in a month is a massive challenge.

The one-month Study Plan will work only in the following situations:

  1. If you are planning to resign your job and/or take a break from your usual routine to concentrate on the GMAT.
  2. If you have already prepared for the GMAT earlier and you are now looking to improve your score by fine tuning your test-taking strategies.
  3. If you are conversant with the strategies in either Quant or Verbal and are seeking help for the other section in which you are weak.
  4. If you are pretty confident with the basic concepts and feel that you just need more practice.
  5. If you are running short of deadlines and have a limited time window to apply..

GMAT One Month Study Schedule:

Week: 01 – Take a mock test and analyze your weak areas. Make sure you brush-up on all those concepts first.

Week: 02 – Solve easy to medium level questions from those concepts. You can use the Official Guide for preparation in the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections in the exam.

Week: 03 – Solve some high difficulty level questions from the same concepts. In case your accuracy doesn’t improve or you feel you are making many errors, then consider revising your concepts once again.

Week: 04 – Take mock tests and revise your concepts. Make sure that you get extremely comfortable with those topics on the day of the Test. Mock tests can be taken periodically to help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. They also help you to get accustomed with the testing conditions of the exam including the adaptive testing patterns (the difficulty level of the next section depends on your performance in the previous sections).

All throughout the 4 weeks make sure you also keep solving question types that you are already aware of to ensure that you don’t lose the momentum.
