Planning to start my full time MBA in 2009.

I plan to take GMAT early next year.

I am planning to post my daily progress here and document my trial and trepiditions.

By the way I am married with two kids, this will be fun.

I started yesterday with DS1:19/25 in 20 mins. 76%.
First step to success is to start the damn thing.

I took the GMAT on Dec 20th
710 93 percentile
Q 48 85 percentile
V 39 88 Percentile

I AM DONE WITH GMAT

Good improvement Mr. Damager

Is this your first practice set? Did you do any before like princeton, OG, or Kaplan..??

I joined this site last year to get aquainted with question types. Have answered numerous questions on various forums.
So I guess I am pretty comfortable with GMAt questions.
I have solved Princeton, OG and KAplan questions eariler. I did not take GMAT, as I was not sure when I could start my MBA

I am picking up the preparation with intention of taking test early next year.

I can solve questions b/w 70-80% accuracy. I need to bring it up to constent 80% accuracy to get into 700 or above.

If i donot make any silly mistakes I am sure I will get close to 80%

Well I have decided to solve questions in RS/PS/DS ect 1000. Kaplan, Princetoon and OG.

Then I will keep taking full length test as well. But full length test I will strat in Dec.

Once I get the feeling that more study can not improve my score further, I will take GMAT.

I think with my background I need b/w 700-740 to have a shot at good B school.

My goal is to get atleast 700 anything more is bonus and i donot think that would improve my chances.
