Hi all I am completely newbie and would like to start my gmat ASAP. I am fine with self study (passed FRM and AICPA with self study) but this time I need little help considering busy work schedule. I just got OG Wiley today but after some searches here and there I am about to buy Manhattan prep interact package which includes their own books. Are you guys normally stick with one book? I’m not even sure which subject I need to start first. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi Haelim,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

1. Set a target score
2. Know your current standing
3. Then pick the part you are more confident with. This will help you in building a momentum.

Hope it helps. Please provide kudos if it helps.

Apart from many great paid resources make sure not to neglect the free stuff that is out there.

Various YT channels have very helpful GMAT oriented content, to name a few make sure to check out the following ressources on YouTube:

Magoosh

Veritas Prep

GMATNinja

All the best,
Chris

Hi Haelim,

You’ve come to the right place! Since you are new to the GMAT, I agree that it would be helpful to familiarize yourself with the GMAT and then take a full-length practice exam. Once you report back with your score breakdown, I’d be happy to provide some further advice.

Also, you may find my article helpful regarding how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.
