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!
My name is Abu Naser Jaman. I am a clinical Data Analyst in Georgetown Univserity, Washington DC. I graduated last year and i have one and half years of experience in information technology.

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 If not for my mistakes, I would not have given serious thought to my goals. All the best to you all!
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.
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!
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.
For other people who are preparing to take a GMAT, TRY YOUR BEST...

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.

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+
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.

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'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).
