Guidance on GMAT and Study Plan. [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2013, 02:44
Hi All,

I have completed my B.E. (EEE) in 2009 and I am currently working in a MNC with 3.5 years of Exp. I have decided to pursue my MBA in 2014. I am going to take my GMAT in Nov so that I can have a span of 2 months of my preparation. I am little bit confused on my GMAT study plan.
Will 2 months of study period will be enough ?
Do I need to take the GMAT before November or Do I need some more time ?
After getting my GMAT scores how to decide on which school I have to apply on my score ? Like which will be safer etc.
I took the mock GMAT last week . I only got around 400 :cry: . But I am sure I can make it better.
I got very low scores in Verbal. Is there any particular method or study plan for improving my verbal skills.

Thanks in advance for you suggestions !!

Can you please tell which B Schools are you targetting, because giving GMAT in November leaves you with very few options.

I would suggest you to sort the list of colleges which you want to apply. Because then you will have a clear idea of when u need to do what.
As for the GMAT anything between 2 months to 3 months is fine.
For verbal, a sure shot way to improve your score is the SC part. Take a MGMAT sentence correction book and learn the rules. That will help you a lot.
Do the OG questions as honestly as you can and you will definitely sail through.
All the best :)
