Hello to the community,
My name is Michael and I've come in search for support on my journey on conquering the GMAT! okay, that sounded really corny, but i couldn't think of a better introduction, so your stuck with that. Anyway, I'm new here, as in just joined today, and want to get an early start on studying. Obviously, I wish I could study 2 hours a day and more on weekends. However, as I go to school full time already and am working full time for Pepsi (thus, my name), the maximum amount of time I can study would be 1 hour a day. Is this adequate time to go over the basics until I have more time to study during the summer? I really don't want to have to prepare for this and wish I could just go into the exam like I did for the SAT and get a 1800 on it and leave, but, as this is my future, I would like to take invest some time with it but first I need to know if the returns are worth it. Basically, can you study for a year for this, or is it better if you wait and cram it all into a 3-6 month period?

Thank you for your time,

Michael

Welcome and good luck!

You want to condense your study time as much as you can. It is better to put in the effort with intensity instead of dragging it out. If you study a n hour or two a day for a year, you will forget a lot of what you have studied and will have to spend half the study time on review/refresh.

It would be better to wait until the summer (or right before) to start. Until then, use some of your spare time to learn more about the GMAT, guidebooks, question banks, study plans, and general tips. The best way to accomplish this is to simply explore the GMATClub website and ask questions on the forums.
