I studied for 5 weeks and took the gmat on jan 6. I bombed it big time. How long do you guys recommend I study? And what study tips can you give me? Maybe study 3-4 months, then take it again?

focus on your weak areas. strenghten your strenghts with more exercise. concentrate, devote at least 2-3 every day, and 8-10 on days off [if youre employed]. it's kinda like bodybuilding. the bigger you want to get, the more you have to workout. [not counting the crap you have to drink and eat everyday, this is besides the point here]; give it at least a month or so. do a lot of tests. ets tests. get them from ebay or anywhere else online. practice in 75-80 minute blocks. simulate the real thing as much as possible. hope that helps, good luck.

A friend of mine got 720 and he told me that 6 weeks should be enough if you study everyday.

I started studying late September and I am writing it end of Jan so I am spending about 4 or 5 months. I think it depends on your situation. I was extremely weak in math and needed to spend most of the time learning everything from scratch. Did you try using some help? I think it is about how well you know the question formats. Spend your time familiarizing yourself with the exam. I like the body-building analogy. Quite true.

yeah, thats a trademark of a friend of mine, who is into that stuff. he's as dumb as a brick, but knows what he is talking about. ;]]

on a more serious note - don't linger. get serious about the GMAT. practice makes perfect. [assuming of course that you learn from your mistakes and try not to make them again, if not practice is pointless ;]]

keep your head up and believe in yourself. also drink heineken. [responsibly!] cheers :beer
