gmat-study-plan-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html <----- This is the place to start. Read it, and start on your GMAT journey. Read it every couple weeks and make sure you're on the right path.

The #1 thing to do first is to take a practice test from mba.com. It will take about 3-4 hours, but then you will know what the test and questions looks like. You'll also have a better idea of how much studying you will need to do to get to the 700. Typically, people study for approx 3 months for 100-200 hours to achieve 700+ (depending on where they start in quant and verbal capability). So make the GMAT your part time job! Come back any time and ask any questions you have. This forum has a wealth of knowledge that will help you.

GOOD LUCK!

Hi mugdha,

welcome ;)

While I am in the same situation like me (just started my preparation) I am pretty sure you will discover much useful information here. You have bought the right books and just need to have a test in order to see whuch are your strengths and weaknesses. Afterwards you "just" need to incorporate the way you normally study and start with the books.

As an example, I am going to tackle first my weaknesses and one by one come to my strengths, which also want some attention. But that#s something, which sounded good for me. You can tackle Quant and verbal at one time, if this is how your brain works. But one advice - definitely keep an error log and write every question, which sounds strange and difficult to you in it. Including the ones from the very first test. And then - re-do them when you finish the books and see how many of those uestion you will manage to do.

Don't hesitate to ask ;)

Regards!

First, I want to tell you that timing should not be considered when you first start studying. You need to work on accuracy and understand the concepts. Do not even worry about how fast you can do problems. You should spend the last month or so practicing under timed conditions. You will also get practice under timed conditions when you do practice tests. I did 7 practice tests before the big day.

Also, to give Kudos just go to the persons post and find the "Kudos" button under their profile/name. For example, mine is below my avatar of Kobe. You can't miss it.

Good luck, and let us know if you have any questions.

MGMAT SC is an excellent guide coupled with the OG 12 and the OG verbal...
For CR try and get the POWERSCORE CR Bible...it really lays out concepts in a very open manner to attack almost all CR questions...A bit long, although, the book is an excellent source of information and strategies...
To pull the score up...you would eventually need to work on your accuracy...and timing strategies...spend some more time on the SC as it works like math logic and the scoring can definately go up once you have nailed the SC's
