Planning to write GMAT in 3 months... help needed [#permalink] New post 26 Jun 2006, 18:51
Hello everyone,
let me start by saying that this forum has been very insightful, I've only gone through it in the last few days but it sheds light on different study patterns for the GMAT.
I would like to target a 680-720 in GMAT. So far, I've gone through the following books:
Princeton review
Kaplan GMAT 2005 edition
Kaplan GMAT verbal
Arco GMAT
I also registed for the 800gmat tests.

I feel that with my engineering background, I'm strong in math but I'm never consistent and the 800score GMAT tests really got me worried. I usually get 4-5 questions wrong mostly due to mistakes, sometimes due to wrong interpretation. I am also somewhat worried about the probability portion. My aim is to get around 48-54 atleast in math because verbal is not my forte. As far as verbal goes, I doubt I can do much better than getting 26-30 out of 41 right. I was told that there is not much more I can do about it, but I would like to improve it to around 32-33 questions right if possible.

Also, let me confess something.. I've been postponing writing the GMAT for more than 16 months now. I keep saying that it's because of the workload, but I know better than to cheat myself. I believe it is now time to bite the bullet and write the exam. It is my one shot to future success in a way, hence the fear.

I would appreciate any help and suggestions from everyone. I feel that I must practise math a lot, since I have the requisite background and a chance to be above the 90th percentile.

I would also like help in general MBA admissions, but that's a different topic.
Thanks,
Arvind
