Algebra book is out of the way...

August 10, 2006
Well I finally made, I was able to finish the horrible algebra book. (Just kidding, it happened to be a really good book, just too long)

These last few days were just really hard because of all the amount of work that I had and courses and stuff, which of course threw me away.

So how are things now that I finished the math book? I did the grammar in use test to see in which subjects I need help. I also did this test last year, before taking the toefl (on October 31st, to be more accurate) and the result at that time was 20% of the questions wrong, and 80% right, that means, 28 questions wrong out of 142, not too bad, but not too good either. Yesterday’s results: a little bit worse; 22% wrong and 78% right, that means that I got 31 questions wrong out of 142. The only thing that made me feel a little bit better is that I got more than 50% of the wrong questions in the same point; it means that I have to work on the same stuff... and of course the mistakes are easier to correct.

What now? My plan is to work on my grammar in use book in the mornings on my way to the office (on the bus) and at nights I at home I started to work on the Kaplan gmat book...

good luck with the kaplan gmat book. I found that they reiterate the same content as other gmat books. But then again, there is only so many times you can show the same formulas, rules, etc. .. I only have 3 more weeks til my test. for some reason, i'm not as panicked as i should be. maybe on test day, it'll hit me =)
Hi Tom, Thanks a lot, good luck to you too... I think that is pretty good that you don´t feel panicked, because being cool is a very important part of the gmat... that is the best way to master this test.
