(i)At the outset, the basics and fundamentals are to be crystal clear. That implies, you need not go back to the concept videos for the topics that you have completed. This also means that you need have the notes or the relevant formulas at hand. The chapters that you haven't completed can be sorted in an ascending order of your strength in those chapters and a schedule must be designed ASAP to complete the pending chapters .
(ii)The time to allot for studying should be increased in a phased manner and should come down to at least three or four hours a day of effective quality study daily.
We suggest you to complete all the concept videos at the earliest, have their notes ready for your revision and practice the concepts through the questions associated specifically with those concepts.
(iii)We strongly suggest you to start scheduling your mock test and giving them under the schedule. Try not to skip them, analyse them, figure out your faults and work up on them so that they are not repeated.
(iv)We suggest you to complete the OG and once again analyse the places where you have made an error.
Quality over quantity is always the rule and hence we advise you to give enough time of two to three minutes or maybe even four if necessary to think and arrive at solutions to the questions.
When you start solving them yourself, you would never forget the process and train your brain to encounter any such question in near future with ease.
Hence the bottom line we suggest is to solve without going back to solutions each time you're unable to find a solution. Think enough and try to arrive at a method.
Let your thinking open up!
(v)Finally we suggest you to revise , revise and revise a lot.
Keep at least one day in a week to revise the lot that you've completed throughout the week and this way you will always be brushed up with concepts, their application and will also have a good analysis of official GMAT questions. Also, make it a habit to solve a few GMAT club questions everyday
(vi)When you start solving questions yourself, arrive at answers, do the thinking you will find yourself motivated with every single question that you get correct or are able to solve by thinking in some way or the other. It is always action that will create the motivation and once you start learning this you'll be able to do more in less time.
(vii)We suggest you to come up with a schedule of your plan according to your available “effective” study time hour and the way you intend to proceed with it.
You may share it with us; we can fine tune the same so that it is full proof.
