Well the schedule which i have prepared is by considering that u haven't yet studied much for gmat and you are free for next two months.
There are certain things you need to know before you start preparing for gmat...
1)Know about the exam-about its structure,timing,sections involved,test centers,how to schedule a test and everything...Just goto http://www.mba.com
2)Prepare list of books needed and order them early so that you have them when needed
3)A time table
METHODS OF PREPARATION
There are two possible ways :-
b)online coaching,in class coaching,private tutoring etc
Now the question comes -
Q)which one to go for?
Ans)I personally believe that coachings are made for people who cannot study on their own.Example:- you are a type of person who has to party all day,have
fun with friends ,watch tv etc then the option of coaching is for you because you will atleast study for few hours keeping in mind that you have paid a lot
and you need to attend classes.
But nothing can help you score better if you dont give enough time to self study.
If you think that you can study properly as per your time table and follow the rule(study at the time of study and fun at the time of fun).
Also coaching is advisable if you are very rusty and dont have the proper understanding of concepts.
HOW TO PREPARE
Coachings-- Less the money spent,the better it is(not applicable to everyone) .. So ,taking into account various factors such as you have enough time to
study , your dedication and various factors the best online coaching is GMAXONLINE ( http://www.gmaxonline.com
) . It is the best one with over 67 hrs of video tutorial.It is
recommended as they provide lots of homewwork so that you can spend 7 to 8 hrs studying easily a day.
The price for complete course is $299 and believe they are the best for pushing a person to 650+ score(only self study and hard work can help you
to raise your score above 650).
