What is your GMAT result and which material did you use? [#permalink] New post 08 Aug 2012, 03:57
This is a simple question which I hope can help out a few beginners in order to determine how much study material one should procure. Im at least very curious to see whether there is a correlation :)
So the questions are:
1. Your GMST-result
2. Your improvement in terms of first gmat prep and real as well as your latest gmat prep respectively real.
3. Native english speaker - yes/no
4. Study material used before first exam and between the following tests (if you have taken more than 1).
Maybe some comments how much you used each material and how they contributed to your GMAT results
5. Time frame

It took me close to 6 months and the preparation was intermittent, I sat for 2 months then I didn't touch the book for another 2/3 months and back with the books again. I would say 3 months with 15 to 20 hours each week would be suffice for a 50 to 100 point score improvement.
