I am going to put down my progress here on how I go about studying for the GMAT here. I intend to take at least 2 tests every weekend, and put in about 2 hours every day during the week (My work timings are unpredictable and I can't spend more than 2 hours without compromising on sleep).

Here is the result of my full tests so far:

FULL TESTS
GMAT Prep 1 - 620 Q?? V??

GMAT SUCCESS
28-Aug-09 Critical Reasoning 1 (9 Correct, 4 Wrong, 6 Not Attempted)

Other test resources I am using are (any others I should be considering?):
1. GMAT Club
2. Power Prep
3. OG 11th Ed
4. Power Score
5. Kaplan

I feel that I need to severly ramp up my DS, RC and CR skills, and work on my time management.

Hello chiraagb,

You will probably want to read bipolar bear's quest for the 800:

Bipolar is my inspiration :-D

Just completed my first MGMAT CAT (Free Test) today and got a 610 (Q45 V30).
My breakup of how I did in each of the sections was: RC (50%), SC (46.67%), CR (50%), DS (33.33%) and WP (63.64%).
I also found myself struggling to finish the Math section.

Am planning to review Manhattan's SC/ RC guides in the hopes of bumping up the Verbal scores. Not too sure about how to handle DS except trying to brush up my core mathematics skills - I am especially bad at geometry and probability.

I think you should move this thread to the gmat experience area.

Secondly, I havn't heard about GMAT success, which you mentioned earlier. Can you let us know what's that??

You have 15 minutes for every test. It may seems a short time, but tests are to train you. If you become fast and quick in answering questions, your chances at the real exam are bigger.


Is this site any credible? What's the quality of the problems?
