I am currently a first year investment banking analyst and am interested in taking my GMAT. I studied for a few solid weeks before I started work, but I unfortunately ran out of time before my score was high enough to take the exam. My last MGMAT CAT was 630 Q40 V36. Before I started studying I was at a GMATPrep CAT of 570 Q31 V38, so I definitely made some solid progress in quant. I would like to take another crack at studying and would like to take the exam at some point in April
My hours normally range from 70 - 90 hours per week, so I am finding it difficult to carve out regular study time. If I have days off during the weekend, I am willing to devote my them to studying, but I am worried that studying only once or twice per week would make solid progress difficult.
I usually work from 9am - 11pm/12am during the week (is it worth it to study for an hour or two after work?) and maybe 8-10 hours (total) during the weekends
Any other IB analysts that have successfully studied and taken the GMAT while working? I'm really looking for any advice to get a decent studying routine going.
I have the MGMAT 4th ed., OG12
, the verbal and quant OG
books and like ~1,000 of the Sackmann problems.
Thanks GMAT Club!
