- When in doubt, keep moving ahead with quant Strategy Guide work. If you have additional bandwidth, try problems in this book AFTER you have finished the relevant strategy guides. In future weeks, your instructor will provide guidance as to the problems that are worth doing. If you do not get to these problems, you will spend plenty of time on these problems after the course is over, i.e., Phase 2.

- Even if you are relatively strong in the verbal section, make sure that you complete the verbal assignments from the book in a timely fashion to maximize in-class review. Verbal is tougher to fix on your own after the course is over.
