GMAT Preperation in 2 months : Need urgent advice [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2010, 10:50
Hey,

I am in 3rd year of my B.tech from IIIT- Allahabad and need your advice regarding GMAT preparation.

My academics are not very good. Just 79% in 10th and 73 % in 12th from ICSE board. In college, I have CGPI of 7.6/10. So, this academic record will not let me get admission in IIM's. Also, I am not much interested to do MBA from India and some time back, I heard about HBS 2+2 program which sparks a lot of interest to me. Its application deadline is 15th June,2010 so I need to give my GMAT anyhow before the deadline. Thus, I choose GMAT. I am also looking to apply for Deferred MBA program in foreign universities.

Also, I have no interest in Engineering and this is what forcing me to go for MBA. I have been associated in management related activities like I was a member of Program and Management Club of my college, I am the founding chairman of IEEE student club in my college. Also, I am the Campus crew Coordinator of India for Opera Software for its marketing activities in India. Then, I was also a participant of Tata Jagriti Yatra 2009. Also, organized lot of events in my college. I think these all things will also give me some benefit over others.

But, I have yet not started preparation for GMAT. Please suggest me some plan/ strategy which could help me to get a good score (about 700) in 2 months. And is it possible to get it? I can devote 3 hours/day + some extra time on weekends for my GMAT preparation. keeping 15th June in mind, which will be the best date to give my GMAT?
You must have realized by now that my vocab is very poor, so will I be able to improve in 2 months time?
Also, I need your suggestions to know, that is it the right time to prepare for MBA, I mean in 4th year of engineering and to take a deferred program.

Please give me your suggestions as soon as possible as I don't have much time to prepare.

Hey Tarunsam26,
Welcome to GMATclub, I think there are a multitude of very useful posts on this forum which articulate your exact goals of getting a good score in <2 months and it is certainly do-able.

I did 2-3 weeks of solid work, but I am sure a bit more would've helped.

Quick tips
1. take a read of any of the gmat books out there to see the structure/types of questions (SC = sentence correction, etc) ;
2. Take a practice free gmat test from any of the online providers and see what the areas you need to work on are.
3. Identify them and go to the basics, (you have 2 months) and tackle them using resources on gmat club - if you search for it and cannot find it, reply back n i'll link to it
4. start doing practice tests wherever you can and check on performance against original

The key success factor, I think, is NOT about quantity of problems you do, but seeing patterns and over-arching trends to help you identify problem types and solutions.

Good luck and browse around n you are bound to find a ton of resources.
