Hi, I have known people who have got excellent scores by spending just four hours a week on their test preparation. In the end its about the quality of time and not the quantity.

I would suggest you join a study group or a similar setup with those who are well aware of the GMAT format. Your time investment could be minimum but you will get alot more out of it than trying to do everything on your own. It is best to be well prepared before you sit for the exam as it deals with your future career at the same time, it can be done wisely with optimal time managment as in your case.

I have heard Princeton review has weekend classes in their centres all over India. See if you can join such classes. They are indeed great help for timely challenged. manya education site for your reference.

1 hr in week days and 5 hour on weekends is not bad.
Can u put in 5 hr on both Sat and Sun? if so, that'll be better.

also, create a plan of studying 3 months and go for the exam. it is important to take it while you are hot. don't drag it too long.

Yepp... 12 to 15 hours a week for 10-12 weeks should be good.

But be little organized. Plan these 10-12 weeks and stick to the plan. Practicing is important, but DO NOT FORGET to keep good amount of time for analysis of whatever u practice, specially the incorrect answers. This is the key to GMAT. It has helped me in improving my accuracy to a great extent (to qualtify, from 70% to 95%)

All the best for your preparations.
Cheers!

I study 2.5 hours every day and planning on doing it for 4 months. I mark problems I have a hard time solving, review the answer. And 3-4 weeks latter I come back to review all of the marked problems and see how I do.

It's funny.

People go into the GMAT thinking it's not that hard. People think, "For crying out loud, we all know it trails the LSAT and MCAT in difficulty level. It's a joke!"

Then bam!!! It hits you. It is that hard. What makes it difficult is that you need to score high (700+ 92nd%). And please don't lecture me about how hitting your target schools middle 80% is fine. I've heard it all.

Take the GMAT lightly and you will pay for it dearly. During my prep I found a new level of respect for the test.

I study 3 hours on weekdays and 5 hours on weekends and planning on taking GMAT in 4 months. After 3 weeks of "hardcore" studying I see the improvement, but I still think 4 months is the time I need to put into to score my 700+
