How long will it take to move from 460 to 600 range?I studied 3 three months alone and scored a horrible 460.Now,I have 3 months in my hand and I am currently planning to take a leave from my job...Is there anyone who scored around 600 from 400 range?Can you give me a guideline to approach?

How long will you take leave from your job? I would just remember, that you don't want to burn out, so make sure to have a healthy work/life/study balance so you don't actually hurt your studying.

That being said, I would start here: new-to-the-gmat-club-start-here-130870.html and look up our study plans, books, etc...

It might be a good idea to purchase a guided self study program from one of the companies advertised on our site. Something guided will help you hit every topic. The fact that you scored a 460 shows me that you have a lack of understanding of some of the foundations of topics. If you lack foundations, you need to build those before you can build on ANY intermediate or advanced topics. So your goal should be to start easy, refresh your memory of simple quant and verbal info, and then start building from there. If you build a house without a foundation it will fall.

Good luck with your journey, and a jump to 600+ in 3 months is definitely possible. We see it all the time. You just have to leave your previous studying behind you and go at it this time 110%.

What did you do during those 3 months?

Did you know what your rough score estimate was before going into the exam?

It's always best to at least go through 1 or 2 GMATPrep cat exams. If you are not anywhere near your target exam, you should consider postponing your exam date.

Don't go to bed until you understand the questions you got wrong that day. Don't go into the exam room until understand generally where you stand in terms of scoring.

Take a rest / breather. On the positive note, there's room to improve and good resources available around you.

First of all, you don't need to take leave from work. If you put 2-3 hrs everyday and 5-6 hrs over the weekend, 3 months is more than enough time.

It is not hard to go from 460 to 600 (relatively speaking - it is much harder to go from 650 to 750). Lots of our students show similar or more improvement on a regular basis. If working on your own isn't working out for you, do one of the following:

1. Find a study partner - some one who is also taking GMAT and is preferably living in your own city. Hook up over the weekend, discuss fundamentals, tricky questions etc. Try explaining him what you know and request him to explain to you what he knows. Whatever you discuss, you will not forget.

2. Join a class/get a private tutor - there are some people who learn only in a class. Once someone explains them a concept, they understand it and then apply it well but they find it very hard (are too impatient) to figure it out on their own. A class helps in such cases. A private tutor is the most convenient but also the most expensive. Alternatively, if a friend in your circle has taken GMAT and scored very well, you can ask him to help you out (and in return you can take the person out to lunch!)
