Hi Friends. I have joined back this forum after almost 1 and half year. Took sometime to change my job and role. It was great to be an active member of this forum, though my first attempt on GMAT failed miserably. I scored way below my expectations. Now I want to practice more and achieve my target of 700 plus. I can never forget all the help and inspiration I got from this forum. I am sure this time I will make it happen.

Hi Guys.

What a wonderful site! and What a Luck ! that I came across this site and gone thru hundreds of postings in various forums such as share the GMAT experience, PhD in Business, etc.

A bit of me. I am 36+ male from India, aspiring to PhD in Finance. Already an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad (in India, a B-School which is most difficult in the world, to get in), FRM, and other professional designations; years of experience in industry and teaching, including the one in the TOP3, in India, I want to move into Research.

You guys are doing wonderful guiding, inspiring and providing a learning forum to so many of us who are going to take GMAT.

I took gmat way back in 1991 and the score was very low, around 580. Needless to say, I need to take it again and get above 700 to make it to some decent school.

I am sure I want to learn a lot from the young and old (veterans in GMAT) alike. They say if there is a will there is a way, or shall I say the GMATClub Way.

Best Wishes

Hi this is Avinash here, I have been working for past 5.5 years at various places in the esteemed Indian IT Industry. The Thought of pursuing an MBA has been there in my conscious for a while now. My dream turned into a Nightmare, when I scored a miniscule 500 ( Q 43 V 18) in my first attempt @ GMAT(early this year). In the hindsight, I see that I did not put in a lot of effort I had only worked on the Princeton Review book and that too for less than a month.

Nonetheless, this score has shook me up totally, I justed laid-off my plans for a couple of months. I am back and with a resolve to score nothing less that 700. I have been going through the discussion forum for couple f days and I see that people have done it in the past.. I am sure I can...... I hope we can all work together towards our goal.

Friends,

Welcome all, this forum is one of the best places to learn & help others learn.

Those who have taken the tests & couldn't do well...do not despair! Do not give up! The best way to learn, is to participate in the discussion, post your views/method of solving problems (Quant/Verbal), ask others about their methods. We all are here to improve.

So, let's get started :-D

Cheers,

Dear All,

I am Praveen. I have decided to write GMAT and am planning to take the same in June 2006.

Though I am not really aware of many tools/books/materials for preparing for GMAT, I got the reference of this forum through Google.

And after coming to this place, and reading some of the earlier posts, I realised that this is the place which can give you momentum and inspiration to progress.

I am from Engineering background and currently working as a project manager in an esteemed IT organization and aspiring to go for MBA from a top university.

Thank you all for making this forum so wonderful and hope to have my journey here, full of new learnings and with an active contribution from my side as well.

Regards,
Praveen

Who am I? Good question. [#permalink] New post 29 Mar 2006, 06:21
Hello,

My name is Brett. I am a recovering GMAT taker. My problem began 6 years ago when I though about going to Grad school. I put it off and kept working, got married, etc. I am now 36 years old and have finally got off my kiester in part due to the urgings of my wife. I have been a working professional for over 10 years and need a change.

I have a pretty good life and currently make 70K a year as a Design and Engineering Manager, but in a dead-end job. Over and over I see how our company makes mistakes and am powerless to change it. My goal is to get an MBA with a Product Innovation/Product Manager emphasis. Obviously, this limits my school choices but they are out there.

I am really looking forward to doing something else, somewhere else!

Hello everybody,

I am new to the group and as usual an introduction is in order.

I am a software engineer by profession with a total experience of little less than 3 years.

Behind every action there has to be a valid reason. Many a times people don't know the underlying reason and the people who believe in occult etc name it supernatural.

But I know the reason why I am going for my MBA.

I have just started with my preparations and will be deciding on a date after a self evaluation.

Its been a long time since I touched basic maths but it feels good to get back to the study groove.

Thats all for a small introduction. Will be asking all of you a lot of questions.

Hi! I had read about this club last year. Somehow, I forgot about the club, and got lost in GMAT preparation :!: Scored low in GMAT, got drained out badly, now I am back. This time around I want to make it. I am spending more time in going through the posts in this club. Its helping a lot in planning my strategy for the GMAT. Interestingly, I realized that I am not alone in making mistakes :wink: If not for my mistakes, I would not have given serious thought to my goals. All the best to you all!

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 [#permalink] New post 19 Apr 2006, 00:32
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

HI- I am in Boston, working in finance and been trying to give GMAT exam with no success. Last time I tried I got around 400, need atleast 600+ to get into good school. Any suggestion ? should I take GMAX online course, is it helpful. What material should I review, I do have GMAT books from princenton, gmat and kaplan.
I really appreciate for your help.


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.

Here is the link:
