First of all, I apologize if I'm posting this in the incorrect location, but I felt compelled to let the contributers to this site know how thankful I am.
After much debate, I decided that I will transition into graduate school and pursue an MBA once I complete my mechanical engineering degree. I had done a lot of research into which schools I will apply to, and the scores that I needed to get into them. What I had no idea about was the GMAT and the standardized testing system (I'm from Australia and moved here after high school - I've only ever taken 1 standardized test).
I stumbled across this site and have a great foundation as to where I need to start now. I picked up the Official Guide to GMAT 12th ed, along with the Manhattan GMAT series
. I am paying very close attention to the advice of the members on this board. Hopefully I can give back to this site in a few months by documenting and explaining my transition from a subpar/average GMAT score to a solid/high score.
