Day 74 - Some PS
As my GMAT studies have progressed, I have made it a point to not work on the weekends. It's almost become a principle. However, seeing that my GMAT test date is rapidly approaching, I wanted to get a jump start on my final week of studying and do just a little bit of PS work.
Today I finished the problem solving section in the Kaplan 800 book. Overall, I am pretty impressed by how Kaplan 800 covered PS, and I picked up a few good strategies here and there. Thus, Kaplan 800 receives my seal of approval for its math review.
I performed at a 90% accuracy with my Official Guide Problem Solving set. I committed a few careless errors, but I was a little upset that I was stumped by three problems. I need to work on doing PS problems quicker because I could see myself potentially spending 7 minutes on a tough problem during the real exam. One thing that I need to work on this week is how to know when to stop working and just take an educated guess. That's difficult for me because I'm stubborn.
8 days to go!
