First Time GMAT Taker - Please advise on Study Plan/Profile [#permalink] New post 19 Jul 2010, 16:32
Greetings -
Its my first time posting on this forum but I am very impressed by this site!

I have recently decided to move forward with my GMAT prep and wanted to get the forums advice on how to prepare. I feel I am in need of some basic concept refreshers and plan on doing the following:

-Knewton Online Classes (12)
-OG 12
-Cliffs Notes Basic Math Refresher for the GMAT

I am more worried about the Quant section more than the Verbal. I have 3.36 Undergrad Business School GPA and 5 years of progressive experience 2 of which are in Human Capital Consulting. I am located in MD and my goal is the Georgetown Part TIme program. Please advise for success!!

Thank you!!

you may want to start off here:

gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html?highlight=ml301

lots of resources around...

definitely get the OG books (OG 12, OG Verbal, OG Math) + MGMAT SC + PowerScore CR. If you're not too comfortable w/ quants, I suggest getting all 5 MGMAT Quant books. I'm not too familiar with the other providers...

P.S. for the quant, you may want to get this book before/during your class: MGMAT Math Foundations - it is the best to get you caught up!
