Wrote the test for first time today in T.O.
My path was as follows:
I wrote and passed my CA exams in September and then started studying for GMAT immediately after.
I work full-time in audit and so found it hard to study/work, esp. after I had been doing so for a year.
I did not sign up for a prep course. Instead I bought books for self-study:
(I did this book front to back in Sep to get a feel for the question types)
This past month all I did was OG, redid the questions I got wrong the first time I wrote OG.
Studied between 5-15 hours per week for 2.5 months
Anyways good luck to the rest of you!
