800 is ambitious. I am glad you feel that way.
· Make a list of 5 topics( Data Sufficiency, problem solving, Sentence Correction, Critical Reasoning, Reading comprehension). Also make a list of the sub topics- for example- all the sub topics in sentence correction.
· Have dedicated days for each of these. Study two topics a day. ( 3.5 to 4 hours a day with roughly 1.75 to 2 hours per topic).
· Identify the areas that you are still weak on, and mark them with different colors. Work on them unless you can get up and change the color on the chart.
· Subscribe to various blogs and editors on the economist, businessweek, financialtimes to develop a reading habit This is what I recommend to everyone in their first session with us. Also, buy a couple of books( fiction/Non Fiction/Science/Literature) and read topics that are outside your comfort zone. Read stuff that you are not comfortable with.
· Join GMAT Classes. There are many classrooms across the country. Get in touch with everyone to find your soulmate. Pay them to educate yourself on the concepts. People have already invented the wheel. Pay them to buy it and put an engine on it. Do not try to save too much money by discovering the wheel yourself.
Remember: Discipline is super important. The first four steps can be implemented with any of the GMAT courses you pick up in the country. Do not fall in love wth GMAT. Stay committed. Irrespective of your mock scores, continue with your plans, and NAIL IT.
Try all of the above and go get an amazing score. Move onto the next stage of your lives and do an MBA
