Hi people,

I seek some help from you. My GMAT is on 18th August and i have absolutely no idea how i am going to face it. Reason being i was not able to study due to excessive official work. I did study some 1.5 months back but after that it was like nothing. I have'nt taken any full length test till date so that i can judge my preparation level.

I am taking two weeks off starting 4th August to study at home.
I want a suggestion from you guys whether i should postpone my test or have a go after two weeks preparations.

Many thanks for your valuable suggestions.

Whats your target score? I feel if you are targetting 700+ , it may not be easy unless you are one of those very bright people.

It depends on where you are at right now, what score you hope to achieve, and how quickly you learn.

In order to get useful advice, you'll need to say what level your current practice scores are at, what score you are targeting, whether you have a solid foundation in math and English skills, and how fast you learn.

I am targetting around 700+, however i would not say that i haven't prepared at all. I have finished OG11, Manhatten-SC and Kaplan higher score work books.

I also did some practice from 1000 series. Plus i am regularly following the GMAT club forum.
Its only that i haven't taken any test, i am not confident enough. I took Kaplan's SC practice tests on the CD-ROM and scored 18/22 yesterday.

What do you suggest should i postpone the test or 15 days of full preparations will be sufficient.

wait, you've done MORE problems that I have and you're worried about taking the GMAT? :shock:

I would suggest you take GMATPrep1 and PowerPrep1, and see how you do with those scores. See if you're making mistakes because you don't understand concepts, or if it's because you're not used to taking CATs or doing GMAT problems anymore. If the latter two, take a bunch of the Manhattan CATs (you get 6 free with your SC book) and see if you improve. re-do some of the hard OG problems (last 1/3 of each section) and some kaplan problems, then take GMATPrep2 and PowerPrep2 and see if you improve.

You should be able to do it in 2 weeks if you're taking time off work.
