Improving GMAT to hope to get off WL [#permalink] New post 27 Feb 2013, 02:40
Hi ,
So my application season has really come to an "end" or a "pause" this yr .
I am WL on Haas and Johnson ( rest all dings). There are a bunch of things i'm going to do to "enhance" my profile.
One of which is re-do the GMAT. I have a highest score of 680 47Q 36V . On my highest score . Since its below avg on both schools ive applied , im gonna have to retake .

1) Can some one suggest a good 1 month prep-course for GMAT prep or point me to a nice thread .
2) Can some one point me to a good 1 month GMAT study plan .

Thanks

I like these books. I would create a schedule that makes sure you go through both books cover to cover (studying both math and verbal on the same day), and more importantly, spread the hours evenly over seven days instead of loading up on weekends.

Also, what helped me was waking up an hour early to study instead of trying to study for an hour after dinner - I was fresher when studying, and my mood was better in general throughout the day knowing I had already gotten my GMAT prep for the day done instead of having it hang over my head ("Sorry guys, happy hour sounds great but I have to study for the GMAT...")

Good luck!

Attached is the schedule I used...it was for my 3rd attempt, so a month was enough.

Agree with CobraKai. I am a big fan of Total GMAT Math (it pushed me from a 680 to a 720). I was able to get through it in 3 weeks by studying about 1hr a day in the morning.

Hi Kapil,

We recorded an audio interview with a student who was on the WL but then got off of it by retaking his GMAT.

You can hear it here: http://www.gmatpill.com/the-gmat-pill-m ... l-student/
Now, he's at Darden MBA.

His before score was 690 - though he had a much greater imbalance between verbal and quant.

The 1 month study plan we recommend is: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... study-plan
