Can I get into one of the top B-School MBA ? [#permalink] New post 05 Feb 2010, 01:48
I am 32 years old and have struggled my way up in my career. I started my career post high school and worked and grew up from a 'door to door salesmen' to a 'debt collector' to 'lead strategist' today. It took me almost 13 years to reach here.

I did finish my graduation (never really got any A’s or B’s ) and now am dreaming to move up to a management position and that means I need an MBA (obviously the top institutes).

I am obviously not that great on any of the subjects covered under GMAT and need someone to guide me from scratch. I intend to give the exam in June’10 and wanted to ask you this:

Are 4 months good enough to prepare ?
How do I manage my time . (I work 5 days a week, around 10 hours a day)
And how can I get hold of one of the study schedule calenders’ ?

Are 4 months good enough to prepare ?
MR: Yes. 4 months is a good period. But it depends on how much you study each week. Consistency and a good amount of practice are crucial.

How do I manage my time . (I work 5 days a week, around 10 hours a day)
MR: Use every bit of your downtime. On the day when you are tired, just review concepts and do some practice problems and then compare the answers. No need to be tough on yourself. On the day you are fresh and energetic, set aside a block of time (2-4 hours) to immerse yourself in practice. Then once you develop the confidence, start to use timer. Then start to become faster and faster at identifying answers.

And how can I get hold of one of the study schedule calenders’?
MR: There are many sites who offer such a suggestion. For example, gmattutor.com has some self study plans. However, they need to be updated to reflect the latest editions of books.

Good luck! More questions, email us directly for faster response.
