Hi, Just another Indian from Indian Institute of Technology, have engineering degree in Production and Industrial Engg. and 4 years experience in renewable energy sector. First time GMAT giver. Ideal goal is Harvard, but my c.g.p.a currently limits my scope to a large extent.

Members I also have a rather 2 rookie question , I'm pretty sure these must have been answered somewhere on this website; please guide me in that case:

1. Considering the availability of the GMAT test centre, how much time in advance should one aim to take the date of GMAT exams? For e.g. I want to give GMAT by Aug end, when should I ideally book my slot? (Or should I have done it by now)
2. I've a Manhattan Sentence Correction Guide Fourth Edition, which, needless to say is quite awesome. At the end of each chapter there are a bunch of questions (Problem sets) post which there are supposedly set of questions which have come in GMAT. But in place of questions it refers to some numbers in certain editions which I'm unable to decipher. For e.g., a sample set will look like: GENERAL SET, Verb, tense, Mood and voice, 12th Edition: 3.19.41,... So on.
Can you please help me understand where can I find these questions. In case these are available on my online account at Manhattangmat.com, would it still be there as I had bought this book almost 2 years back?
Let me know or guide me to correct destination please. If this wasn't the correct space for posting such questions, please guide me to correct forum.

Regards

Hi all

I am new to this site.. have been thinking about giving the GMAt for a while.. but have been a bit too lazy i guess.. finally have booked a date 10 days back.. 28 sep 2013.. It gives me a tight schedule to prepare.. gave an online evaluation test with princeton review.. the score i got is 590 V32, Q40..

I am looking at a 700+ score.. as i have a very average 65% in my engineering (electrical). I have more than 68 months of experience in renewable energy sector (hydro projects). I am also involved with an NGO (one of the founding members) that works on creating awareness about renewable sources of energy and energy conservation in rural areas.

Based on my profile... what are my chances of getting into a good b school considering that i do manage to get a GMAT score upwards of 700..

Hello,

I was googling some information about GMAT and this site popped up. I have been learning quite a lot in the last few days about the test, prepping, and what to expect. I am really grateful for all the information available.

Little bit about me: I graduated in 2012 and for the next 3-5 years (still thinking about it) I am working in Japan on the JET program. I really really love my job but after this experience I want to go back to school for an MBA in international business with a heavy focus on Japanese business culture. I am still researching programs and what I need to do to achieve this goal. I know I want a future career where I can work with Japan in some capacity. I understand this is a pretty broad goal but I will continue my research over the next 2 years or so to narrow down my specific field.

To further this goal I really want to enter a Japanese grad program. So over the next year or so I'll be studying both for the GMAT and the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test). Need to research those as well. I have my eye on a particular school in Kyoto and another in Tokyo. I will also apply to some US based schools that have similiar international business programs.

As for the GMAT I will begin prepping end of August and start self study. I know I really need to focus on math and I am terrible at it. I am also looking into online courses (mailing MGMAT and Manhattan Review). So far Manhattan Review has the best times for courses for me and pretty good reviews. I am aiming to take my GMAT in early spring/summer of 2014.

If anyone can give me some advice on where/how to start refining these goals, whether or not Manhattan Review is a good choice, and other helpful tidbits I would really appreciate it.

canadian here, looking to write my gmat aug 30 or 31st. going into my 4th yr of undergrad need to write the gmat to get into certain Masters of finance programs, and possibly considering the option of a canadian mba school.

did manhatten prep course, and pretty much just starting to work on og questions now. found the directory super helpful for the quant practice questions, since sometimes ppl have easier + faster ways to solve questions than what the og says.

did the og 13 diagonstic before i had any prep
ps - below
da - avg
rc-above
cr-above
sc-below

i am doing like 2 weeks quant then 2 week verbal then like 1 or 2 days on IR/AWA. prob fit some time to do a CAT aswell. srsly worried about my sentence correction i hate that stuff hoping to do some searching here for some good tips

The best way for SC is to get involved in the SC threads, my scores have gone up by 4 points in SC recently due to this :)

Hello, I'm also planning and preparing to take the GMAT exam, I have ALOT of work to do so I'm trying to be resourceful as possible. As helpful this site is, I'm still having a problem taking it all in at once lol.... Trying to figure out what route to go on. I graduated from FDU in Teaneck NJ with my BA in psychology, I know my weaknesses when it comes to this test (quant) so I'm still looking for a more rigorous quant training than just reading and answering the Manhattan GMAT books.... I am making progress though so hopefully I can find better ways to improve through this site!!!

Hey guys/gals,

This is my first post and I just want to introduce myself and start contributing to the community (long time looker/user of your resources).

I'm behind the curve, but I'm gearing up again to take another run at the GMAT this year!

About me:

- I live in the Sacramento area and I've been in the Air Force for 6 years
- I've taken the GMAT twice: 44Q 36V second official test (660), 39Q, 38V first test (640)
- I'm trying to get motivated to execute a more coherent/structured study strategy this year than last year (just starting this year, but...I honestly put in a lot of effort last year and came up just short of where I would like to be)
- My target scores are score 48/49Q and clean up my verbal score (41+)
- I only applied to Tuck last year (various reasons, but I probably rushed my application a little to get everything in by R2)
- I was on the Tuck waitlist until about a month ago
- Like all of you I'm sure... I'm trying to find the time to study while continuing to keep my professional life on the rails!

Target schools: Tuck (re-applicant), Sloan, Haas, Wharton

Anyway enough about me - have a great Labor Day weekend and I look forward to participating more in this community!

Hello

My name is Sammy, this is my first post on GMAT Club. I am taking my GMAT October 16th, and I have been studying for the GMAT since April. I took a Manhattan course close to my house and thought it was very informative. However, the more I read online the more I realize I am making mistakes in my studying. Mostly taking too long to prepare. I am very dedicated to my studying and I do about 2 to 3 hours a night. I have improved quite a bit since my first practice exams but I am still no where near where I want to be. This week I scored significantly lower on my CATexam than the one I took 3 weeks ago. I thought I knew more material!! I am clearly doing something wrong! I know more is not necessarily better, but I am determined to receive my goal of 650 and will not stop until I reach it. I am open to any and all advice so if there is anyone out there who might be able to help please let me know!

Thanks

Sammy

Hi,
I am an Indian with 14 years full time work experience, Bachelors from NIT, M.S. from University of Arizona in Electrical Engineering. I have worked with big names in India for around 9 years and USA for 5 years in Renewables and Electric Automotive Industry. I took my GRE in 2001 with score as 2150/2400 and had a not so good experience with GMAT with score of 640 in August 2013. During the prep I was consistently scoring 680-690 but could not keep the tempo. Planning to retake the exam in November 2013, and will apply for primarily for One Year Programs. I will register once I start getting 750+ score in Practice Tests.
I look forward to advice from Group Members and share my experiences.
