Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
scoring 700+ is easier than i thought.
if your quant is good, just nail it. its easy to nail quant than struggle improving verbal because verbal has few rules and more exceptions.
verbal: even an average performance might not be so bad.
my score: Q50, V39, 740

First post in the GMATclub forum. Decided to write the GMAT this month and the 'G' date has been fixed for the 16th of Feb. I know this is a short time for prepparing for the GMAT, but hey .. you never know...
I am really impressed by the discussions that go on in here and the advice from peers.. thanks guys.. I have created my study plan based on a compilation of the infromation available here..
I am so glad to have found a forum like this.
I have just started preparing for my GMAT and I am aiming at getting into London Business Shcool. I have a Bsc IT degree and have been working in the pension industry.
I have about one month to prepare for the GMAT so I need all the help I can get. My Ideal score is 700+ and I know I can do it. My area of weakness is the writing skills but I must say the critical reasoning is quite tought too. Math is my strong point and I am not too worried about that part.
If anyone has any comment about completing the GMAT prep in one month please let me know.
Its great to be part of this comunity and you will see a lot of me for the next month.
Speak later and above all Wu Wei.
I am Dee and i am very glad to join this forum. I am a Software Architect here in Chicago and am taking GMAT on 18th of March. It is a real challenge to alternate between work and a tough assignment like preparing for GMAT. I have a simple plan to attempt it. Read OG completely before i give 2 tests including PowerPrep and a Crack GMAT test. I got a 600 on GMAT 6 years ago and aim to do better. I hope to interact with all of you people in the next 2 months and post my experiences.
INSEAD has always been my dream and i hope to start off with a 15 day plan to my effort to write GMAT on 18th March. I am aiming at a 700+ score and i believe i should get to my dream on the very first attempt. I started with the OG and my going is alrite for now. I will post my experiences as i go.
Many people who want to study alone have taken the GMAX Online course and found it to be their most useful tool. It is a shame to waste the questions in the OG10 before you actually learn the material beforehand.
Regards and good luck,
I appreciate your advice and i agree that it might be good for a GMAX online course. But I have taken the GMAT before and i have been doing the base study for quite some time now. Last Year i was about to give the GMAT before i had to cancel it for unforeseen reasons. I am preparing myself now on a tight schedule and the going seems to be alrite for now. I am an engineer and i feel that Quants section holds no fears for me. I am trying to beef up my Verbal skills right now. Anyway thanks for the advice and i hope that my way of preparation holds good.
I joined gmat club few days back and have across this thread recently. I hereby take this oppurtunity to introduce my self.
I have complete my engineering and am working as a software consultant past 4 years. I want to raise my bar and get into strategic position and thats where MBA comes into picture. Hopefully things will go as per my plans here after now that I have finally started the preparation.
Past few days I have been visiting different forums on gmat club. I am more than delighted to find answers to most of my questions here. Hatsoff to all moderators and contributors for maintaining the informative and not to forget exhaustive portal. I will try my best to keep contributing to this.
I just found GMATClub today as I was searching for advice on what questions to ask, whom to see, etc. on an up-coming campus visit. I haven't (yet, I hope) found that info, but I'm loving this forum already. Herewith, my introduction:
My name is Shauna. In May, 2005 I received my BS in Geology (Marine Science concentration) and in December, 2005, I received my 2nd BS in Multidisciplinary Studies (International Relations in a Historical Context). For the past 5 years I have been working as the Imports Manager & Wine Buyer for a wine company. That has been a great gig since I get to use my 6 foreign languages (well, not the Russian so much, but...)
Let's see... I took my GMAT last October. With only 4 weeks to prepare (with a full-time class load and job schedule to work around), I went the self-study route. Using Princeton Review's 'Cracking the GMAT', Kaplan's GMAT Premier and the Official Guide I managed to score a 710 (Q45, V41, AWA 6.0).
I've been accepted at all of the schools to which I applied, but will probably be attending Thunderbird - and learning to speak Mandarin Chinese - come August.
Good luck to everyone still preparing for the GMAT, applying to schools or waiting to hear back.

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.
I am an Indian currently residing in the US. I came to know about this website thru a friend and i already feel as if i am hooked on to it ..
It's a good means of communication .. I can see lot of members helping each other with different queries .. Thats hould take them a long way ..
well, let me tell something about mysely .. Have done my Bachelors in accounting and Masters in Human Resources from India .. Worked with ICICI for 6 mths .. I am planning on doing MBA in HR from SFSU .. Anyone out there who knows something about this school .. ???
As i am half way thru my GMAT prep . My main areas of weakness are RC & CR .. Anyone has got a few tips to tackle these topics ?? Well thats it from me .. Awaiting everyones reply ..
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.
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.
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.
