Hi,

I started to prepare the GMAT 1,5 month ago.
Pretty soon I discovered this fascinating and interesting forum. It's very nice to read about others' experiences and also to contribute.

I'm a french engineer with 6 years experience and want to have a boost in my career.
I must say that the Gmat preparation is quite hard, especially as it has been a long time ago I didn't practice any exams, both verbal and maths.
Until now, my scores a pretty low. I wish to do the exam at the end of may, with the scope to hit the 700 points. Because I don't know if I'll be prepared enough for that date, I might postpone the exam then for Oct. The problem is that it will make me lose 6 months until the next MBA application round.

So I will keep working hard on the GMAT and see what happens then around middle of May.

Have a nice day!

Hi Frnds,
I am new to this forum and came to know about it from my frnd who forwarded me a link to some "790" story scribbed by one of his acquintances . It was truly inspiring. I've been browsing thru the site for over a week now. After having gone through a no of posts, I find this forum as a perfect platform for somebody like me to start working on getting to the final destination (720+).
Well about me. I am a B.E. ComputerSc from India and have been working in the S/w industry for the past 1.8 years (Presently working with Motorola GSG). I aim to take the GMAT exam in the month of July. I have already started with Princeton Review Verbal section and would like to hear from somebody "how should i go about it" . My weak area is verbal. Quant is not much problem, though!

Hi all, :o

My name is Boonrod. I am living in Bangkok, Thailand.

It is my pleasure to join in this club. Thank you all of you who greatly contribue to this club and make it alive....

I found this site from google. And I am very excited that there are a lot of people trying to make their dream come true as I am.

I set my goal to be one of the Top B-school students. My career goal is to be a management consultant. I have prepared myself for almost three years. Due to English is not my native langauge, I have faced a lot of difficulities to improve my score in verbal of GMAT. I got only 570 in my GMAT score last time (Q48,V20) , very low score in verbal part. But I will not return my commitment, I will try my best until I get what I want. :wink:

For other people who are preparing to take a GMAT, TRY YOUR BEST...

That all I would like to say ^-^

See you on the TOP!! :P

Cheers,

Boonrod

Whether you want to take the GMAX course is your personal preference, but we reviewed their course and its on our website. See if it helps you make a decision.

Hello! this is rollthedice! [#permalink] New post 02 May 2006, 12:09
Hi,

I am rollthedice. I came to know about this site from google but was too late in the game as I was taking my GMAT in few days with little/no prep. My first attempted GMAT score 550 sucks.

I have 11 yrs industry experience and is part of the problem. I lead teams in the onshore/offshore model that I dont get enough time after work (If it ever ends!). But, I am not loosing hope and going to know my weak points better by learning from you guys and sharing what I can in the process and make my scores a whopping : 700+

Wish me luck!

Hi everyone!

My name is An, I have tried Gmat test once. The test was not good, so I cancelled the score at that time. After the test I have gone to work in a firm. Now I want to study Gmat to take the test once more. As my dream is to study in a foreign country, to use English everyday,... I am now nearly forget all what I have learnt Gmat from the previous time. I hope this time I will be wiser and have a better way of studying gmat.

Thanks and best wishes

Introducing myself [#permalink] New post 08 May 2006, 12:11
Hi!

My name is Sangita, and I joined today!

I found this site today, a week after I took my GMAT for the first time. As you can imagine, I am here because I didn't score as well as I wanted to :-).

There is some great info on this site! Looking forward to meeting more of you, and participating in the Forum.

I created a post in GMAT experience (I think --) but I'm not sure that's the correct place to post, so I may have to repost somewhere else... still trying to navigate, and figure out where everything should go.

Apologize before hand, if I post anything incorrectly. Please let me know if there is something wrong, and guide me to the right place... will really appreciate it!

I am very excited to be here!

Regards,
Sangita.

Hi all,

I'm originally from Sweden, but I'm now a current resident in the States (married an American somehow). Got a Swedish M.Sc in Industrial Engineering and Management and did my Master's thesis at Johns Hopkins University. Spent one semester in Sydney, Australia (Study Abroad)

Considering getting an MBA in 2008 (need more work experience first). Got 660 on the GMAT first try (Q42, V40) but going to re-take it. Screwed up the quant part big time.

Live in NC so looking at the schools around here: UNC, Wake Forest and Duke (although my wife would kill me - she's a Carolina grad).

Hi All [#permalink] New post 26 May 2006, 19:30
This site has been great thus far. I've been studying for the GMAT for about 2 months now and am taking the exam on June 7th. I live in the Washington DC area. I'm hoping for a 720+ on the exam. Been studying very intensely, as I had my own real estate business but things are pretty slow right now (renovated and resold about 30 properties over the past 2 years). I was a officer in the US Navy for 4 years after college, then had my own biz for a couple of years. Total work experience will be 7 years at the time of entry into an MBA program. A bit older, but hopefully will have decent shot at entry into a top program. I want to get an MBA and use that to move into the commerical real estate arena. In addition to MBA programs, I may also apply to Masters in Real Estate Programs (MIT, Columbia, Cornell, NYU, etc). Goal is to work in RE development or private equity, buying properties and repositioning them for good returns -- and then down the road would like to be doing my own commercial RE deals. Many thanks thus far to the creators of and fellow vistors to this site.... very helpful!

Hey [#permalink] New post 27 May 2006, 23:48
Hi everyone,

My name is Brett and I am from the US. Philadelphia to be exact. Now I'm living in Tokyo, Japan. In the US I worked for as an attorney, but got bored and moved to Japan last year. I'm working for a company that provides various software solutions for law firms. I do a variety of things, but my main role is to manage a group of distributors in Korea.

My ultimate goal is to move into consulting/private equity, hence the reason for an MBA. My target schools are INSEAD and IMD. I'm sure more will come along as I go throught the deliberation process.

I found this site a couple of months ago and it has been very helpful. I started taking the GMAX classes and so far so good. I hoping for a score in the 680 range, but right now the quant is giving me a good beating. Hopefully participation on this site will help and I can help others too. If anyone has any tips to improve your math score, please let me know.

Nice to meet you

GMAT [#permalink] New post 29 May 2006, 08:58
Hi,

I actually joined a while ago but I think I skipped the introductions. I have done the GMAT twice and received a score lower than 500 on both tests. My Quantitative score is shameful at best. I was always a struggler in Math during highschool, and now the numbers and word problems have come to haunt me again. I am determined to overcome my fear of Math and to tackle the Quantitative part of the GMAT.

My mistake in both GMAT exams were hoping I could raise my score with Verbal, but now I have come to terms that I really need to understand everything. My goal is not as high as most of you seem to have set. I will be very happy to receive a 600.

My dream is to study in a University here in my country (Canada), or in Europe (Spain, Italy, France) once I have finally overcome my fear of Quantitative GMAT.

Sincerely,
Amoura

Hello,

I'm recent college graduate from Florida now living in Chicago, IL working as an underwriter for a large insurance firm. I completed my undergraduate work in economics and plan to pursue an MBA at the University of Illinois or Depaul. To be frank, I don't find the discipline of business or finance to be particularly intriguing; however, I do find it a practical course of study as a means to better secure my future. I suspect my lack of interest in general business won't help me through my studies, but my need to set goals and meet new challenges certainly will.

I found this site by way of a Google search for related information on preparing for the GMAT. It seems like there is a real treasure trove of relevant information here, so I signed up.

I plan to take the GMAT in about 1 year. Here's to planning!

Cheers,

B
