6 weeks! is it possible? [#permalink] New post 28 Mar 2012, 17:52
Hallo. I am planning to sit for the gmat exam at about 6 weeks time. I started a course last week but I am not happy with the way it goes. Actually, i dont think it offers me much. So, Im thinking of stopping and self preparing for the exam. I am looking to score 650 or higher. Now here is the situation. First of all, Im Greek, so English is a foreign language to me. I think i am going to need a book for the verbal section. Secondly, im a sociologist, so i havent been taught maths for sometime. I could say, though, that in school i could deal with maths quite easy. So, do you think it is possible? I dont work right now, so i have much time to practise. I read the forum's post about the books and i am thinking of purchasing the following: Kaplan Premier, Kaplan Verbal Workbook, Kaplan Math Workbook, Official Guide 12th. Do i need another book about the writing section? Any other advice? Last but not least, do you know any on line store with fast shipping time to Greece and good prices?

OG12 / Verbal review should be sufficient for Verbal practice.
for concepts:
SC: MGMAT SC guide
CR: powerscore CR bible.
Quant: MGMAT guides
u can check my blog on how to prepare for SC using OG

There is no difference between the Kaplan Premier 2012 or 2011.
If you can, get the 2013 since it comes with integrated reasoning, since you may have to take that... hopefully not.
