Been a lurker for some time now, first time poster. I am currently employed part-time at the same company that I worked at all through college. However, it is a dead end job and I am frankly sick of it. I earned a undergraduate degree in Finance from the University of Illinois at Chicago, but have yet to find a decent job. Since it has been almost a year, I decided to perhaps go back to school and earn an MBA.
I picked up couple books; GMAT Review 12th edition, Cracking the GMAT
, and just recently bought the Kaplan
GMAT workbook. I have yet to start studying, but just glancing at some of the problems in the book scare me. I've had troubles with probabilities and geometry in the past. I am not too worried about the verbal part, but regardless I will be reviewing that as well. What do you guys recommend about the math portion. Will that math workbook be good enough to help me learn concepts?
This whole exam just scares me
PS I did look at some of the resources here on the forums, but I still have no clue as where to start.
Also, IF I were to get a slightly above average score, is it worthwhile getting an MBA from a school not in the top 20?
