Hello all! First time poster, week-long reader, and about to start my GMAT/MBA journey.
I understand the GMAC GMAT preparation tests to be the cream of the crop for taking full-length sample GMAT tests. And I hear they should be taken towards the end of preparation as a predictor for actual score. But how does one define 'end of preparation'? In my preparation process, should I take the test as a diagnostic to give me 4 weeks or so before my test to improve on any last minute weaknesses? Or do I save it for the end-end -- for my final week -- to close my preparation on an official note and put my head in the right place?
My initial plan is to take the first free test after finishing the Kaplan
book to understand my weaknesses. Then I plan on taking the second test about four weeks prior to my test date to again tackle weaknesses. Should I be waiting later to use up my second test?
PS - My test date is Nov 19
