I'm planning on taking the GMAT very soon. The university I wish to apply to has its deadline on April 30th 2013 so I've still got some time.
I have to achieve a minimum score of 680 to be able to apply. I went to get 3 GMAT books at the library of my university the other day to be able to study.
The books are:
-Cracking the GMAT
/ Geoff Martz and Adam Robinson
-The official guide for GMAT® review : the only study guide with more than 800 past GMAT questions - and their answers - by the creators of the test / from the Graduate Management Admission Council
-Préparation au GMAT : méthode d'entraînement complète avec 4 tests blancs corrigés : votre passeport pour le MBA / Steven W. Dulan et la Faculty of Advantage Education
In your opinion, how long should one study for the GMAT. I was thinking of taking the test around the 15-20th of December, does that sound reasonable?
On another note, I'm experiencing a lot of PCS (Post concussion symptoms). I was injured during a hockey game about a month ago, I got a broken nose, broken cheekbone, perforated sinus, 4 of my teeth are numb, damage to the ligaments of my shoulder and a severe concussion (lots consciousness for 5-8 minutes).
I'm being closely monitored by a physio by the way.
Thing is I'm tired all the time even though I sleep 8-9 hours, I get huge headaches in the morning and during the day, I can't watch tv or stay in front of a computer for more than 10-15 minutes otherwise I go crazy, I often get lightheaded.
Anyway, I don't feel that great.
Taking this into account I want to leave myself enough time to study. I know that in the end, only I can know how I feel and how long I need but on average, how long do you guys think it takes to properly study for this test?
I got 104 at the TOEFL about a year ago so I'm quite confident for the GMAT. English is one of my mothertongues with french. I only speak english with my family though since I live in Switzerland. I've had a few courses in english at university but the majority (97%) have been in english.
Thanks a bunch guys!
