HOW LONG DID YOU STUDY? [#permalink] New post 25 Aug 2006, 07:58
I thought I would start a new post to find out how long people on average studied for. I gave myself a month but realize that it was just to short of a time.

so tell me how long you studied for and has it payed off?

For my first try, about 2 weeks ago I studied for about 5 weeks. The result was somewhat lower than what I had been getting in practice. I rescheduled to retake 5 weeks after the initial exam. I have some other stuff going on so I'll get in about 3 weeks of studying this time around. Just hoping to improve on my consistency I guess.

Hi,

Yes I'm back for one more try. I guess it's partly because I'm disappointed I didn't do as well as I could have, and partly because I feel guilty because I could have worked a little harder. Will it actually make a difference come application time if I have a 730 or something 30-50 points higher? Well, I can only give it a shot and then find out when acceptances are doled out in the spring. But the bottom line is that I feel like I should put forth my best effort and I don't think I did that the first time around.

Chen, I'd be happy to share if I could, but I don't think they allow for that :) I do hope, if I'm able to get into a great school, that I will see some of the people from this board on campus next year.

I guess all total about 20-30 hours...which is 20-30 hrs more than I studied for the SAT, but the $250 fee got me to study.

Actually 780. I was hitting 750-780 on GMATprep within the first 2 weeks of studying, but I didn't do quite that well on my first attempt with a 730 so I put in another 3 weeks of work between my first and second tries. But my background is quite different than most people taking the GMAT, I believe so my preparation was necessarily different as well.

I studied a total of about 25-30 hours including the time to take the two GMATPrep tests. I work long hours in my profession and couldn't study more.

I spent considerably more time studying for the LSAT when I took that a number of years ago. Maybe that's why I didn't concentrate on reading comprehension or critical reasoning.

Practice is the key......You would know the concepts but how and when to apply them comes by practice practice and practice.

All the best guys....
