Well I know it isn't ideal, but this is what I have to do in order to meet the deadline. I was thinking the deadline for applications for CU Denver was Aug 1, but it's actually June 1, so I need to take the GMAT and fast.

What are your suggestions. I don't really think I need a 600 to get in, only about a 500. What would be anyone's advice or strategies for approaching studying everyday for the next 17-18 days.

I would start by reviewing your math fundementals and taking a GMAT diagnostics test. From there, you can find your strengths and weaknesses and craft a study paln.

If you are completely fresh, do a few things:
1. Download GMATPrep and take a test to see where you are and what score you have right now (maybe you are at 600, who knows).
2. Get a book you can cover in that amount of time such as Cliffsnotes GMAT Cram Plan or Kaplan Direct
3. Get a book for the area you can improve the most/fastest.
3.1. For quant get Kaplan math workbook (if really weak in quant get MGMAT Math Foundations)
3.2. For verbal get PowerScore Verbal bible

Thanks you guys, I actually joined this forum a few months ago, but work has been crazy so I haven't been on here as much. Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks a ton.
