Hi All,
I gave gmat on 9th November 2011 and got a 660(Q-44,V-37,AWA-4.5) . I am a Captain in the armed forces and prepared for gmat for around 45 days and it was all together a great experience as i was out of this type of studies for almost 7 years. In the beginning it was a bit difficult and when it started appearing a bit easy i was sitting for the exam.
I gave around 3 Cats and got a score of 530 (prep 1) , 560 (prep 2) and 590 (prep 2).
After getting a 660 i was a bit relaxed and applied to ISB hoping that i will be able to make it. I did get the int call but not able get that magical word "Admitted".
Today i.e 21 feb 2012 i am again starting my prep and will be targeting 750 this time.
Material that i will be using:
1. Manhattan set of 8 books
2. OG 12 & 11
3.Quant & Verbal Review
Precisely 55 days in hand. Looking for suggestions from all you people out there to reach that mark .

All the besy best for your prep. I am going down the same road with a 690 - targeting 730+ Re started prep - very, very tough if you have already taken the GMAT 1 or 2 times. Targeting taking the test in March/May. Pls reach out to me if you need help of any sort - will be happy to provide any guidance I can.

Its awesome to see an Armed Forces officer post this. Your resolve would anyways be high given your background, but just that I have immense respect for our soldiers. My cousin brother is a Major in the army, his wife is a captain and his dad is a retired Major.

All the best.

generally people score less in actual gmat than what they score in the practice exam...so kudos to you for scoring better than ur prac exams...must be because ur a veteran,who is blessed (trained) with great temperament...(generally most of you guys are...i really envy you people for this quality.. ).
your score is well balanced but reflects scope for improvement in both quant and verbal...instead of mgmat CR , u may consider powerscore CR ( most of the 700 +) debriefs speak so)
IMO mgmat advanced quant and gmatclub quant tests will be a great help in ur quest for 750 + ...
you may also consider mgmat CAT ( 6 tests) besides repeats of gmatprep for testday stamina ( i know you guys have plenty in physical activity)
all the very best and do let me know if i can help you in any regard ...i think the entire gmatclub community would be more than willing to help out the veteran in achieving his target...

Here's my study plan. Using a similar set of books (MGMAT set, OG12, Quant/Verbal Review) for my May 17th test:

1.) Take diagnostic test to see where you are at. Mine was GMAT Prep 1. You may want to skip this step since you've already taken the real thing.
2.) Start working through MGMAT Guides. I did all the problems at the end of the chapters, but skip the OG Sets for now to save time.
3.) One you have gone through all the guides, take another diagnostic test to see where you are now at. Hopefully there is improvement from initial diagnostic test. I haven't reached this step yet, but will take either an MGMAT Test or GMAT Prep 2.
4.) At this point, start working through the OG sets listed in the MGMAT Guides. If you go through all the problems listed in the guides, I believe you will have done all of the OG problems. Make sure to keep an error log to help see where your weak spots are.
5.) Work on brushing up weak spots. At the same time, start doing the MGMAT CATs that come with the purchase of the guides. This will help you get your timing down for test day.
6.) Look for other resources online, either free or paid. There are plenty of sites that offer free CATs, so these could supplement your studying. Also, there are some great resources listed on the forums here, such as the 700-800 level math problems created by Bunuel. If you're gunning for 750+, you will need to be getting problems like these right on your exam.

Best of luck in your studies. I have one more month to you to fit all of this in (with my May test date), so you might not be able to do all of this. If not, take what you like, and go with that.

90 points improvement in 55 days is a bit ambitious IMO. You would need more time than that. Ofcourse you can prove me wrong (I would be happy for that).

AbhiJ, i agree with you, but then it also depends upon the time available on weekdays and weekends, the distractions in life and the ZEAL he has for 750...( generally the veterans are good at the third thing)
if someone is able to devote 4-5 hrs on weekdays and 12-14 hrs on weekends. the total will come to approx 400 hrs. now, his base is 660, so IMO achievable provided he has time and dedication for this long haul.
gladiator999, seems challenge is thrown at you...
keep us posted about the progress..all d very best..

Dear AbhiJ,
The way necessity is the mother of invention, the same way being ambitious also leads to achievement of something unthinkable. And i think 2 months is more than sufficient to hit a 750. What is really required is the consistency and perseverance which I am going to maintain for the course of the next 2 months less today Coz was busy throughout the day and now not in the mood to study at all.

I said ambitious not unthinakable. On the same note - "All progress was made by the unreasonable man".. Like your spirit.

Great to have another person who is closely following the saem schedule as me. I'm using the same material as you and have gone through two of the prep books. I think the best approach is to go through the material and figure out your weakest area. This isn't always easy to do, but hopefully the error log I'm keeping will help pinpoint those areas. As always, perseverance and dedication are very important.

I look forward to following up on your progress and hopefully we can share some ideas on how to improve our studying and eventually our score.

Even i am looking for study partners here and thanks for coming forward . We are a team of 3 now
( More People Can Join US - The Bigger the better )and lets crack Gmat barrier of 750. I believe its not difficult but require consistent efforts with right resources. Identifying the weakness and working upon it is the biggest area where we need to work upon. Though i am yet to come in the form but once started the machine will only stops at the benchmark .

Guys I have the same story. Only difference is I scored 570 the last time I gave my GMAT. But I know I can easily score 700 if I work methodically.. Let me know how we can all collaborate & follow a schedule to help each other to achieve our dreams. Lets DO IT!!!!!!!

kindly count me in ur study group.
I will be giving GMAT almost the same time when ur giving and also my current level is little below 700 ( quant stagnated at 48 and verbal hovering around 35), which is also close to urs.
so let''s take the challenge of scoring above 750 regardless of anything and everything.
I would suggest that we post our weekly plan on this same thread and brainstorm the same for each other's help. we give out the various test dates and discuss the scores. we can always share the material. i am open to ideas. What ur take on this?

HI all,
Sorry for being off from this thread for so long . Suffering from a back Injury and fighting hard to recover as soon as possible . For the past few days i haven't studied at all and the pace in the next few days will be very slow coz of the same reason. Thanks to rajeev and yekrut for coming forward and sharing there study plan.
Please share your strategies which will benefit the others as here we are not fighting with each other but have to blow off only one target i.e GMAT. I have not succeeded once but the mind and heart is in sync to break the barrier of 750 this time. Hope I will pick up in the next few days and start my studies soon. Best of luck to all

As it was mentioned another thread, there is a service called Grokit that allows you to train online. What is pretty cool is that they also allow you to train in groups. Could be something of interest for the people in this thread:
