My progress so far.. [#permalink] New post 28 Oct 2005, 10:26
Nothing unusual or spectacular.

I am a 34 year old software engineer. Graduated as a Bachelors in mechanical engineering from a reputed university in India. I have been working in USA since last 10 years and thinking of enrolling into an EMBA program - possibly Wharton West/Berekely Columbia/Duke Fuqua. My scheduled date for GMAT is 8th Dec 2005.

Started studying around 1st October 2005. So far I have used OG 11th Edition and Kaplan Math Workbook. So far my performance on practice test have been below average I guess:

Kaplan 1: 540
Kaplan 2: 540
Kaplan 3: 550
PowerPrep 1: 560

This weekend I plan to take additional computer based practice tests - probably from the Princeton Review CD or 800score.com My study pattern - around 2 to 3 hours almost 5 days a week and on the weekend - around 5 to 8 hours. I am dreaming to score 700+ but will be glad if I can score anywhere above 680+ One thing I am doing consistently is keeping a meticulous records of my mistaked I made in OG 11th edition problems. Once I finish the book (I am done with PS and DS; still working through RC/CR/SC) I plan to review all the incorrect answers at least twice before the real GMAT.

There is still one more month for the real GMAT and during that period I hope to gain skill/confidence to achieve my dream score. :-)

Thanks for reading.

Do EMBAs require GMATs? I was under the impression they were optional?

Yes, they do. [#permalink] New post 28 Oct 2005, 16:01
Yes, they do. But again this requirement varies from school to school. The schools I am targetting do require GMAT.

Hey ... thats real close to my planned date too (planned mine for the 9th) ... although , I have started prep. much later (like last thurs.) than you did :( . My goals are all the same as you have with the exception of the time factor you have going for yourself ;)
Good luck with your prep.

FWIW , I was under the impression that even if you do score a bit low on the Kaplan thats fine , since they are supposed to be tougher . The score estimator on this site seems to corroborate this too .

scahinh - thanks for the best wishes. I wish you the same. Good luck with your studies and exam.

By the way tonight I took Princeton Reviews CD test and I got the score of 630. Little bit improvement than my previous scores. Hope that I can eventually stretch it upto 700+
