Day 28 - Part of Workbook Geometry; PR DS Review
This afternoon I reviewed the first half of the Kaplan Math Workbook Geometry chapter. I was quite pleased. Kaplan seemed to do a good job covering the basics, and I also picked up a few nuggets of info about geometric shapes that I had lost since junior high.
I also re-read the data sufficiency chapter in the Princeton Review book today to brush up on PR's strategy for these types of questions. It seems like such a long time ago since I read through PR--I fear that I have lost some info from that book all ready.
Currently, I'm in the midst of changing my study plan once again. I need to do a better job of reviewing my errors from past practice problems, as well as create a system for reviewing difficult concepts. For the former, I think that I will devote one day each week for reviewing past errors--I plan to do so once I reach the Official Guide book. [Editor's Note: I didn't end up executing this plan to devote one week to review. I later worked out a system for doing review every day--you'll see as you read ahead] In terms of reviewing difficult concepts, I am going to start using notecards. Hopefully I'll develop a good stack that I can review every day, and eventually I'm sure these concepts will become my bitches.
Hey--wouldn't it be funny if I renamed "BeatTheGMAT.com" to "MakeTheGMATyourBitch.com"? I wonder if that domain is all ready registered...
SUMMARY OF DAY 28 WORK:
1. Kaplan Math Workbook - Part of Geometry Chapter - pages 183-217.
2. Review of Princeton Review Data Sufficiency Chapter - PR, pages 146-171.
RECAP OF DAY 28 INSIGHTS:
1. Keep in mind that it's important to review errors on past practice problems.
2. Notecards are a great addition to anyone's study plan.
