Advice please! How would you organize yourself? I've been studying for the GMAT 3 months so far and on my last practice exam (3 weeks ago) I scored 670.

I've never been the organized type so I feel like I am drowning with work, +1 work, etc. What would you do? Wish there were more hours in the day :(
