I'm a GMAT noob and plan to track my studies and progress on here in a single thread.
I struggle with standardized tests both on verbal and quant. My goal for my first GMAT would be a 650 (though I certainly wouldn't complain if I hit 700+!)
Target schools are Kelley, Ross, Kellogg, Stanford, Haas, Sloan, Babson, IIT
(Yes, I realize I need a 700+ to get into most of those)
Did I mention I don't test well?
My GMAT is scheduled for December 11. That gives me exactly 82 days to study. I work a full-time job and consult on the side, so time is limited.
Right now my study materials are:
1. Manhattan GMAT books
(just received the 8 of them, used, not sure if I can get access to the tests)
2. Official GMAT guides (set of 3)
3. Grockit Standard Membership
4. Knewton Class + 5 GMAT tests
5. Official GMAT Practice tests (2)
6. 800 Score
Now I just have to figure out a schedule (easy) and stick to it (hard.)
