Did you know that you can download a GMAT test on the following site:http://www.mba.com/the-gmat/download-fr ... tware.aspx
The test scores would be unofficial, of course, but the test will give you a great idea on where you stand. It is developed by the company that distributes the GMAT and you get two free practice exams. So if you score for example 720 there, you are as likely to get 720 on the actual test. But if you score 620, it is very unlikely to get 720.MGMAT books
are, in my opinion, great. There are 5 more guides that cover math (basics) but if you do well on the prep test you probably do not need them. Kaplan
books are also rated well, except that most people say that problem with the Kaplan
books are generally harder than official questions and might not be representative of the actual test. But I think overall, you picked the best books - MGMAT, Kaplan
and Official Guide.
Make sure when you do problems in the Official Guide you make an error log
. Error log
is a document that contains all the problems in the official guide that you did wrong. It is very valuable once you get done with all problems in the OG.
Finally, make sure you don't just run through the problems and think that you are done. You really need to understand how to come to those solutions otherwise you are wasting money and tests.
Set your aims high, carpe diem
