Hi All,
My name is Ajay and I am currently working as a software preofessional in Pune, India.
I plan to take the GMAT on Sep 1 and preparing for the same since the last two months.
I have another month to go and I'm worried and excited at the same time!

About myself, I am a Telecommunication Engineer and have been working for the last 2 years.
My hobbies include playing the guitar and long distance running apart from reading and playing half a dozen other sports!

I aim to score around 730 atleast on the GMAT but am currently VERY VERY far from it.
I've done a couple of mock tests from Manhattan and realized that I really need to pull up my socks in the verbal section.

I find SC the most challenging followed by CR and RC.

The current resources I use are the OG (12th Ed) and the Manhattan SC book.

Thanks and hoping to have a fruitful last month of studies!

Hi ajay, welcome aboard!! :)

As you will be appearing in the test within next one month, I would suggest that you should emphasise on taking as many CATs as you can. "Concept building and follow up tests" strategy would not work, you would have to learn the pattern recognition strategy and apply that on all the CATs you take in next 30 days.

Best of luck & keep us posted!!! :)

Hi All,

My intention of joining this forum is to get expert advise from the experienced lot here as I have taken the GMAT twice, last month and three years back...with disappointing scores! What was most shocking for me was a dismal performance last month, after having prepared for over three months!

Self Analysis: I screwed up both the sections, yet, I am somehow confident on Verbal. With Quant, I have some doubts, and mainly its the lack of being in top form, as I have done well in high school maths, so my basics are not that bad. I am from an engineering background and over 6 years of working experience now.

I would want to take the exam yet again within one month's time and would want to see myself getting not less than 48 in Quant and 38 in verbal!

Honestly, after last month's debacle, i am totally clueless on figuring out what went wrong...my last two GMAT Prep (with IR) had 720 and 710 scores, with 40 in verbal once - no repeated questions from OG or practice!

I am heavily disappointed by my past performances!

Help!

Hi guys,

I am a student from Austria (no kangaroos) and took myself 3 months for completing my bachelors thesis + preparing for GMAT - then i will work before my master studies. A friend recommended GMATclub... read a study plan and some stuff, looks pretty nice to get an overview.

Let's do it! Best regards

Hello everyone,

I am a Geotechnical (Civil) engineer, with about 6 years of work experience. I completed by undergrad from IIT, India and Masters from Virginia Tech, both in Civil Engineering. I am interested in relocating to Asia – Pacific and my top choice right now is INSEAD, Singapore followed by Indian School of Business. My target score is 750, but truthfully, I will be satisfied enough with 700-740 to not go for a retake.

This forum has helped me tremendously only within a month of my being active. I was very poor in Combinatorics and Probability, but was surprised at how much I improved just by going through the discussions.

Currently I am at 690 (Q 47 V 38), my diagnostic GMATPrep score. I was short on time in each and every section, including AWA and IR :D. My weak areas are SC, CR and inequalities. I also hope to improve my time management skills.

Good luck to everyone.

I would start first.

I have BS in computer science&engineering and am in IT field working in sillicon valley(san jose,ca) past 10 yrs.My goal is to make it to the top biz schools ,Stanford would be my first preferrence.I want to become a techie entrepreneur and an MBA from Stanford would help realize my dream.

My traget score is mid-700's.

How far am I from it? Currently very far away.My strong area is math and weak area is verbal RC. Just started my preperation last week but I believe in my analytical skills and was excellent at math during my school/college days,got good foundation on english grammer from my school days.Coupling this with hardwork, I strongly believe I can make it happen.



it's cool to see you here. Your GMAT goal is ambitious and I believe you can do it.

I am currently working on GMAT too, and my goal is 700+:) I am still not close to it, my weak part is math and I am doing all I can to improve it. Judging by your name, may I ask are you thinking about Standford? If you do, I am thinking that direction too. haha.

By the way, I am siwen, from China, and I am working for EMC.(a storage solution provider based in US.)

Hi all,

I did my Bachelor of Finance degree from the Australian National University. I graduated last year and have been working in a consulting firm. I have been prepping for GMAT on and off for quite a few months and I finally scheduled the test on Sep 2. Getting nervous as I only have some 20 days left. I finished the 8 manhattan guides but then took a break from my GMAT prep. Started brushing up on the material yesterday. I am aiming for 700+ but not feeling very confident at the moment. To get into my top choice I would ideally need a 740. Although I've always been good in maths, I find that in GMAT I am doing better in verbal than in quant. So I am just planning to be as thorough as I can...wish me luck!

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently doing sales for a small company in Japan. I have been planning to go to business school for a while now, but I wasn't actually planning to take the GMAT for a few years (to gain a bit more experience). However, a few days ago I attended a business school information meeting, and was convinced to apply for 2013 entrance.

I should have started preparing a while ago, but I'm not particularly late either. I'm aiming for a few small Japanese business schools. Japanese schools aren't particularly famous globally, but I want to work in japan, and these schools are well connected here in Japan. So I feel they would be a good match.

I'd be able to get in with a 550. However for a scholarship I'd need at least 600. 650 Would be even better. I've set my goal for 700 because I know that's within my grasp. I'm aiming for 700. 650 is my mid goal. 600 is my "Oh my god, I must have wasted my time" goal.

I'm planning to take the GMAT in December. I can easily put at least 6.5 hours a week. Half an hour Monday through Friday. 2 hours on the weekend. That should get me 97.5 hours I've already put in about 3 hours worth of study. So I'll have 100. I'll probably be able to put in 3 more hours a week here and there. Which will hopefully bring me up to 150 hours by the time I take the test.

Quantative is where I feel strong in. Verbal is probably going to be my weakest area. AWA will not be fun, but still doable. I took an evaluation test and scored a 560. I wasn't able to answer about 30% of the questions. If I work a bit on strategy and then work on types of problems I have difficulty with, I feel I should be able to reach my goal.

I'm looking forward to cooperating with all of you!

Hey Everyone,
I'm as green as could be and have some serious self doubt already! I graduated in 2009 and have been working steadiliy since, but I have only recently decided that I want an MBA. I want to knock it out of the park but have a lot of doubts-- I have a hard time understanding some of the MBA jargon people use. The good thing is that once I get accustomed to studying, it will become second nature--I just do not wish to start off reading and studying a ton and realize a few weeks later that I have been going about the process all wrong.

Need some inspiration.

Best

M

Today, I consider myself part of the GMAT club. I took a couple of practice tests with varying results. I got a 580 and 590. Did better on the math first time, and then better on the verbal the second time around. I really struggled with the new part: Integrated Reasoning.

I have made a plan:
1. I will study in 45min to 1 hr blocks of time, twice on MWF, once-TTh, 3 times SatSun.

2. I will study in places with little distractions like the library and bring my MGMAT book with me to work to study on breaks.

3. I will focus mostly on the math for the first month, but study verbal to change it up. going into second month I will focus more on the verbal. later into the 2nd month I will focus Integrated reasoning as is suppose to incorporate both areas.

4. Lastly, I will find study buddies and try my best to strike a balance between individual studying to stay focused and group-studying to stay motivated and to keep things interesting.

Please feel free to leave any comments, questions, or suggestions

Hi,
I am kanthi and a dentist who aspired to do MBA from a long time. I learned about blog this through friends and is quite interesting to know about everyone's interests and determination towards achieving their goals. I feel very encouraged and motivated to give my best in my test. I really want to ace in my test as well as know more about MBA as I am from different background. Knowing my background am weak in math having no clue howtones repairs and need guidance for math as am taking my test soon. If anybody could give some suggestions regarding how to approach math would be helpful. Also am interested to know what everyone is looking forward in a MBA program. I am excited to join the club which is enriching along with fun. Nice meeting you all.

Hi

My name is Vishwa. I am a chemical engineer and have more than 3 years of work experience. Like all of you, I'm preparing for GMAT. This site is nicely laid out and there are a lot of useful resources. Although I don't have a fixed time limit for preparation, I intend to give the GMAT by the end of November-2012. I have been checking out this site for a couple of weeks now and sometimes I get overwhelmed about the amount of information available here. I'd be glad if someone can suggest how to use this site optimally.

Hello all! Not new to the forums, but new to posting here.
I am currently working in a boutique Investment Banking firm in India -- have 5 years of IB experience so far. I have done my MBA from one of the top schools in the country. I have also completed my CFA program.

Doing a second MBA abroad has been on my mind for a long time now. My plan is to actually apply only to INSEAD in the process.

I have just started my GMAT prep -- not decided on a date yet. Since INSEAD deadlines are only in April, I figured I have a lot of time to take the exam.

Anyway, wanted to say hi to everyone and start becoming a regular member in the community.

Cheers
:)
