Beginner to GMAT prep [#permalink] New post 31 May 2014, 15:25
Really need lot of inspiration. I have started preparing for GMAT an year ago and some how after going through one book, became lazy and didnot continue to next level of practicing tests. Now I am not even at the beginning line to start the race again. It requires lot of determination.
I need inputs in speeding up my prep from this forum. I can spend one to 2 days every day for preparing and 4 hours on week ends. Aim is finish the exam in 3 months from now on.
Is that a viable target?
Are there any topic wise questions that are used to test my proficiency level.

Thanks in advance.

1-2 hours per day is an adequate amount of time to prepare for a test in 3 months. Start by taking a practice test to see where your starting point is. That will help you know how far you have to go to reach your target score, and what areas you will need to prioritize for your studying.

It sounds like you've been preparing for a year -- so you're familiar with the various question types, etc.

I would recommend going into high gear with super intense studying -- over a shorter amount of time. Increase your 4 hours on weekends closer to 8 hrs.

On weekdays - 1-2 hrs can be OK -- as long as it is high quality time spent. No distractions, etc.

You can take various online practice CAT tests -- including this one: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... ctice-test

Just now downloaded Gmatprep free kita nd it has topic wise questions around 90. I started with problem solving and after few turns, got the topic under control. Did a silly mistake on easy level question too. Will refresh Data sufficiency questions tonight.
I hope i will have to buy one of the commercial test prep kit. is there anylink to MGMat tests. Is this most of the people using?

Very sad to say that i was not happy with the test results of Gmat quant test i took yesterday. was able to attempt 35 questions out of 37 and most of 600, 700 questions went wrong with 17 correct answers out of 37. Is there any good topic on permutations and combinations questions?
