hi, I am not sure whether I should practice LSAT questions, because some questions are so different from those from Gmat.

Dear chesstitans,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

First of all, about your "required" sources--the OG is a must, MGMAT is truly superb, and the Powerscore Bible is reasonably good on CR.

Veritas, which didn't make your list, has very good resources as well.

I would argue that what Magoosh offers is every bit as good as, if not better than, other private sources on the market. Here is our testimonial page.

Here's a free Magoosh math lesson:
Multiples
Here's a free Magoosh verbal lesson:
Substantive Clauses

Here's a free Magoosh DS question:
Circle & Triangle
Here's a free Magoosh SC question:
American cryptanalysts
When you submit your answer for each, the following page will have a complete video explanation. Each one of Magoosh's 1000+ GMAT practice questions has its own VE, and this kind of immediate feedback, question by question, is precisely what accelerates learning.

I hope this information is helpful.

Mike :-)

I am thankful that I can know something from you so that I can have a better decision. I am done with veritas. Surely, I will review it sometimes.

Hey chesstitans ,

I believe GMAT Score matters upto a certain point. Post that all matters is the profile.

New language depends on the school you are applying. If you are applying to European countries(say), you may get an added advantage over another person who has exactly the similar profile because third language is always an added advantage for recruitment.

For others, it really doesn't matter alot. I could see you already have a 700. If you feel your target school score range falls under this, make other parts of your application very strong else work on your GMAT.

Although I am the youngest of all you tagged in, I believe a decade ago it would have been very easy for people. No competition and very less candidates looking for an MBA.

I wonder what would happen a decade later from now. Schools will say bring 800 else go home. :P

All the best :)

Great post, abhimahna! Though I would be really, really upset if this prediction comes true:

I'm praying that the GMAT score arms-race chills out a little bit. Average scores at some of the top U.S. schools are close to 740 now. That's nuts.

I'll stop complaining now.

I'm thrilled that you're still hanging out with us in the verbal forums, abhimahna!

Thank you GMATNinja :)

Yeah, things have started working out for me and it's decided that I am traveling for my MBA next year. So, maybe a few days more and I am back with answering questions directed to you. ;)

Dear chesstitans,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

I see that two of my brilliant colleagues, abhimahna and GMATNinja, gave you thoughtful responses. I'm going to take a different tack.

My friend, there is something absurd about asking such a big question of someone else. Yes, up to a point you should get advice on strategies, but at a certain point, it's no longer about strategy--it's about who you are. Who are you? What is your life about? What statement are trying to make with your life? What is the vision that guides you? What is the deep intention that undergirds all that you do? Nobody else can give you answers to such questions, and the more clearly you can get on the answers to these questions, the more you will stand head and shoulders above most B-school applicants.

You have to understand the "why" behind all of your choices. See this Simon Sinek TED talk. As long as you are making choices to impress other people, you are not living; furthermore, people often feel this and are not impressed any way. You have to make choices that are deeply congruent with who you are and what your life is about. If you live firmly that way and can communicate that, people will be blown away!

Don't learn another language because it would look good, because it would impress someone else. Learn another language if you absolutely have to in order to walk the path you intend to walk. Learn another language if not learning it meant you couldn't become the person you need to become.

People who live from the outside in are often dissatisfied and find success elusive. People who live from the inside out often have a satisfaction that is not contigent on outer success, and ironically, such an attitude more readily leads to success.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
