Hi Everyone,

My plan is to apply to business school this fall. My targeted schools are UCLA or USC for now, I may have more schools later. About myself: I graduated in 2005 with a economics degree with a gpa in the low 3.0s. I didn't have much extracurriculars in college, except for a few clubs and tutoring kids for free in underprivileged neighborhoods. I know I need at least a 700 to get into these schools.

The Plan:

I will probably need about 3 months to attain this goal, since I've been out of school for a long time. I haven't taken a standardized test since I got my CPA license 2 years ago.

Here are the study materials I plan on using after reading a lot of debriefs taking advice from bb's thread:

1st Few Weeks:
I plan on working on Kaplan the first few weeks to familiarize myself with the test. Then I will take a GMAT Prep Test to know where I stand and how much more time I need to work on my weaknesses. I don't want to waste a GMAT Prep now because I am sure I need help on everything since it's been a long time. I will update this plan and continue writing in this thread with my progress. I think by writing it'll help me with my AWA since I haven't written an essay in 5 years.

I am open to any suggestions, feel free to criticize.

LETS DO THIS. GO GO GO!

Thank you for the advice hgp2k. That is a great score. I want that score! Hopefully I can get it.

I will probably buy OG Quant and Verbal 2nd Edition. I think MGMAT uses those editions, can anyone confirm that?

Thanks.

Thanks. I am sure you would get a very good score. Just give yourself enough time, 3 months preferably. You can refer to this link (if you haven't already): http://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html to get a general idea about what should be your game plan.

Yes, latest edition of MGMAT uses 2nd edition of verbal and quantitative guides. I just want to give a small advice here - Do not buy more than necessary study material. You will unnecessary waste your money, energy and stamina.

Best of Luck!!!
