Need to take GMAT *and* GRE...which to take first? [#permalink] New post 26 Oct 2010, 09:25
I am considering a MS+MBA degree and the application requires both GMAT *and* GRE scores.

I've been studying aggressively (2 months+) for the GMAT and think it makes most sense to take the GMAT first...and then the GRE.

However, a friend suggested taking the GRE first as prep for the GMAT.

I'm interested in hearing opinions - especially from anyone who has taken both.

Thanks,
BC

wow - that's quite a requirement esp in the times when many MBA programs started accepting GRE...

I have not taken the GRE, just know that math is pretty similar (except the DS and data interpretation sections). I know GRE is getting changed soon - is that going to impact your decision? Perhaps worth it start with GMAT and wait for the new format or is that too far off?

Thanks for the reply!

Fortunately, I learned that I had been misinformed. I clarified the issue with the admissions office and *ONLY* the GMAT is required for this program (sigh of relief).

I also learned that admissions offices can be staffed by both graduate and undergraduate students so, when in doubt, be sure to ask for confirmation from a more authoritative source in the office. It could save you some unnecessary stress and worrying!

Cheers.
