Hi all
Heard about this from a colleague, it seems to be an unbelievably good resource. I have already taken the GMAT twice last year (Jan 2nd and Feb 5th), in a huge rush as I was transferring between jobs and wanted to get it over with. This strategy proved to be hugely foolish (not surprisingly), and I'm sitting on 640 both times, with my quant dropping the second time.

I have been studying more consistently this time, going over basics, buying high school math books where necessary etc. Took my first GMAC test the other day and scored a 710, definitely inflated because of some OG 12 questions, but it was a confidence booster.

Also, I had taken the Princeton Review course in New Delhi last year, and my entire batch was very disappointed. I also had bought access to Manhattan's tests & a brief 2 week subscription to Knewton tests, but am wondering if I should repurchase anything else as blind practice didn't help. If anybody would like to contact me on my experience with these Prep courses, please feel free

It would be great to connect with anybody who has advice for retakers. I have been seeing some of the older posts on this topic and they're quite fantastic.
-Ash

Hello everyone!
Mahtab from Canada :D. I came to Canada from Bangladesh when I was nine years old. Currently I am 19 (turning 20 on August).

I want to do my GMAT since I've got free time and I absolutely love the type of questions in GMAT overall (a bit nerdy, I know). I had an internship with a fortune 500 company last summer and right now I am an intern for Canadian National Railway (Canada's biggest railroad company, almost like a monopoly). I am doing my undergrad in Civil Engineering and I hope to contribute at least a fraction of what I extract from this very resourceful forum!

Hi, I'm Lauren. I currently work as an internal auditor for a mutual fund transfer agency. I would like to get my MBA with a concentration in non-profit organizations. However, I have a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts), was not given a GPA due to the large number of Pass/Fail courses, and have not taken a math class since junior year in high school (almost 13 years ago).

Clearly, I have my work cut out for me. I am up for the challenge though! I would like to get a 650 on the GMAT. I took a GMATprep test yesterday and got a 550 (30Q 35V I think). I really need to work on all the concepts of math, but I think my goal is pretty attainable. I am also planning on taking some business-related math courses at a local community college to hopefully beef up my educational experience.

I don't know what schools I want to apply to yet. I have a lot of preparation to do before I can think about applying, but I figured joining here would be a good step towards getting the process started. Just waiting for my books to come from Amazon and I'll be ready to go!

Hi ,
My name is satish. I have a bachelors in Computer science. I have about 8 + yrs of experience in the s/w consulting business. my ideal GMAT score would be mid 700's and considering my current scores (I scored a paltry 600 on my Kaplan assessment test), I have a long way to go. I love consulting business and would like to switch to management consulting from software consulting, not that I have any experience in it, but what the heck theres gotto be a first time. My ideal schools are Berkley , Fuqua. I would like to improve upon my verbal skills. SC in particular. Good luck preparing for GMAT guys. Lets all kick some GMAT butt

Ciao

Hi smandalika,
Welcome! I noticed you are interested in management consulting. Well, from a former management consultant, I recommend you read this article on the GMAT and how it relates to a career in management consulting.

SC is the easiest to improve in the short term. Reading may take a little longer---these RC videos may help.

Enjoy!

Hey guys,

Ive been lurking for a while. After about 3 months of studying, about to take my first (and hopefully last) shot at the GMAT on Monday, June 6th!

Im currently in strategy/management consulting, after having spent a couple of years doing M&A at a large Brazilian industrial group. Getting my MBA has always been one of my goals - let`s see how the GMAT goes so I can start thinking a little bit more about school selection.

Nice to meet everyone.

I found you guys a couple days ago in an Epiphany moment when I realized I could Google Kaplan questions I didn't understand XD I just started studying and am about three months out for my GMAT, target date Sept. 15th. Target score, 750. I've worked through a Kaplan book and took a CAT today, scored 580 (35/35)...ways still to go >.< but whatever.

Anyways, looking forward to meeting everyone.

HI guys, I'm Alex. I'm currently hovering around the 600 mark on the few practice exams I've taken. My goal is to take the GMAT this coming September and to score a 700. Which means I'll be dedicated many many hour a week studying as I lead up to my exam date.

I'm 30 years old, I'm the marketing manager for an online research chemical company. My undergrad is in 'Behavior Science & Health' ... If you are confused as to what that is or what it does for you, you are not alone. I don't know myself. HAHA.

My undergrad took me MUCH longer than it should have, and my GPA isn't anywhere near where it should be. While my work experience has been good, it isn't GREAT. Conclusion: I reaaaally need to bust out an amazing GMAT score to supplement some of the areas where I lack.

Anyway, I'm very glad I stumbled upon this forum. Excited to learn and grow.

Alex

Hi Guys,
Greetings from Cairo,Egypt :D . my name is Mai and I've a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering and I'm planning on starting an MBA program next spring.

I took the GMAT last month and the score was really disappointing I got 520 which of course is not enough, so I decided to retake the test, I plan to do that by the end of September so that gives me 2 months to prepare, hopefully I'll nail it this time!

I am taking the GMAT in October. I joined this forum to get inspiration. I'm enrolled in the Manhattan prep course. I am planning on studying 8hrs/day 3 days a week and hope that this is enough to eek out a 700 in October. Pray for me

Hi folks, my name is William and I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area working in micro-finance/economic development. Its a growing field (at least in the Bay Area) that is attracting MBAs, so I'm looking to go back to b-school to stay competitive. Target schools are UC's (Berk, Davis, LA, Irvine, SD) and also USC. Currently studying for the gmat, target score is 700.

Out of curiosity...anybody else here in micro finance or economic development?
