Preparation time: 7 weeks // Target: 700+ [#permalink] New post 12 Feb 2013, 13:21
Hey Guys!

As everyone else on this forum, I'm beginning my journey with GMAT by writing a first post. I am a finalist from the UK willing to continue the academic journey at one of the leading graduate business schools in the US.

I have just booked my session for the 1st of April at 11:00AM. It means I’ve got 48 days to prepare and hopefully achieve my goal of 700+ score.
My plan is to go through the main 8 MGMAT strategy guides, of course combined with the questions from the official guide and the additional quant and verbal books.

Is there anything else I should look at, provided if I’ve got some spare time? Would you recommend any particular online course to take?
Thanks for any help in advance! :)

Cheers,
Langus

That is a very short prep time. Do you have a lot of time during the day to actually do all of the prep?

Thank for your reply JimGMATPrepster!

I'm a college senior, so I can easily find 6-8h per day at any day of the week!

I have started with the Kaplan Premier software and I must say it is very effective.

Hi Langus,

1 month is definitely possible - as long as you stay focused with a dedicated plan. Before you start your hardcore studying - it's best to get a sense of how the test is layed out. So we recommend you take a GMATPrep test with the software: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-prep-about ... reasoning/

Start with books, but if you find yourself not progressing as you should, consider an online course. There are many things that cannot be shown on a book - but can be clear through video. So keep that in mind.

Also, if you run out of practice questions in OG, you can click any of the pills below for extra practice.
