My journey towards my dream: TOEFL and GMAT (110 and 700+) [#permalink] New post 20 Nov 2012, 02:00
Hi guys :)

I'm the next of the long list of people, who would like to sit for the TOEFL and GMAT until June. It was July-August last year that I decided to take this step to be admitted at one of the top university (MsC) in Europe/USA.

Background:
Italian guy, non-native speaker, with a good level of English but with some lacks in grammar and vocabulary. My aim is to reach 100-110 points with TOEFL. BA in Comunication, MA in Marketing and Communications. I suppose Quant and Verbal will be equally weak, but maybe Quant is a little bit weaker than verbal.

Target score:
I've started officially yesterday preparing on TOEFL. My study plan is structured on 8 weeks, so I'm going to take the exam in the beginning of 2013. Today I have started also my GMAT preparation, reviewing ONLY the basis (MGMAT foundations) to be prepared to follow a good study plan of 5 months when most of the TOEFL plan will be over. I want to apply for 2013 or 2014 class for an MsC in Management or Marketing Management. I will be able to dedicate at least the weekends and most of the weekdays: about 5 hours on the weekends, and around 3-4 hours per day during the week. Concerning my goal - well, I would be somewhat happy to score above 650, but honestly, my real goal is somewhere 700 and above.

My strategy about TOEFL and GMAT enclosed.

What do you think about this plans? Advices? Changes to do?

The Journey, my long journey towards my dream is started finally. Give me best luck and follow my improvements. :)

Thank you in advance for your help guys!

TOEFL:

Reading: After a disastrous test on Official Guide ETS (11 wrong questions) I tried to sleep a little bit more. Probably I wasn't concentrated enough. Yesterday morning I took the Review Test on Rogers' book.
Result: 4 Wrong questions. Still too much, damn, but better than eleven. I'm still continuing to read novels in English to improve my vocabulary: today, I'll have 3 hours of free time on the train. The Great Gatsby is already uploaded on my e-reader. :wink:

Listening: Also in the listening section my first test was not so good. On Official Guide ETS i scored 5 wrong questions. Probably I wasn't concentrated too. This morning I've taken the Review Test on Rogers' book.
Result: 3 Wrong questions , with one of those mistakes in a completing chart question. Quite happy, but I can do better considering that my target is 110. I'm still continuing to watching TV shows in English to improve my vocabulary and my ears: today, I'll have 1 hour of free time before going to sleep. How I Met Your Mother and Criminal Minds are ready to be watched. :wink:

GMAT:

Math: I've started to read the book "Foundations of GMAT Math". This book is useful to review some of the basic rules I've completely forgotten. At the same time, I'm writing down on a word paper all the important stuff, rules and examples, useful to an in-depth review in the future. I'll attach a PDF here when I'll finish. Quite happy about this book, it's very simple and well done. Considering that I comes from a humanities background it's a must have. I've just finished to study the chapter 3 (Exponents and Roots) and now I'm going to start Chapter 4. :wink:

Stay tuned guys :)
