Preparation time [#permalink] New post 06 Feb 2011, 02:29

I have been a follower of the 'question of day' on gmatclub for quite sometime as my taking GMAT was always on my list of interesting activities. But due to the work load i have never been successful in finding time for preparation. I am sure many would have similar excuses for giving up the preparation. One fine day, I sat down to take a 'gmat prep' diagnostic test and to my surprise i ended up with a score of 420.

I have 6.5 years of work experience and been with Retail industry all the while. So being realistic, could any one who have been in similar situation, let me know if there is any possibility of scoring 730+ with 4 months(3 hours each day) of preparation (considering my initial score).

Thanking you all,

Well Smackie, the answer is yes! 3 to 4 months of preparation should suffice provided the practice sessions are well planned out :)

That should be MORE than enough time as long as you have a good study plan. I recommend MGMAT books and the Official Guides. MGMAT also has a great error log program on their website called archer. You can get a free version called "Archer Lite". Also comes with 6 CAT tests.
