This is regarding myself preparing for GMAT.

I am a govt. official in Govt. of India and am 30 yrs old with 4 years of experience. Should i opt for gmat and leave my job. Is there any future in GMAT for officials like me.
I would also like to know how much it is going to cost for studying abroad in USA or Europe. What are the best business schools for me should i opt for GMAT.
Also i would like to share that i have scored 99+ percentile in CAT before with 99.96 in quant. I expect a good near 700 score in GMAT as i am preparing for it.
How much salary should i expect as being new to private job and new to business. Kindly advice impartially.

Hey.!

First of all Don't leave your job till you get admitted to B-school.
You can try IIMs, ISB, and if you can afford then search for options in UK, US, or Canada.

I've attached below some links for GMAT study Plan, Books, Mock Tests.
Please read these articles carefully; these will help you. You may need to work with some other books. It will take some time.

Hi 11Vivek,
Please find below the answers to your questions, in order:

1. I will never suggest you to leave your job unless and untill u get admit to a college of your choice or caliber. Prepare for GMAT alongwith your job..Trust me, it can be done as I have seen it for myself, u just need to manage ur time well.
2. Future depends on your interests, ur passion and ur skills. There is no such thing as govt officials or corporate executives in the long run.
3. For pursuing and MBA from Europe or US, be ready to shelve out around 1 Cr. If you are lucky enough, u may get scholarships but that totally depends on your merit and needs.
4. Since u got a good score in quant in ur CAT exam, i assume that you have a fairly good quant skills. But dear friend, dnt just rely on that, becoz GMAT quant is a bit different ,especially the DS section. U can get a good command over it with some practice.
5. Salary is an important consideration while thinking about future prospects.But,I must say, as of now, U should be more focussed towards getting an admit in a good school,and gain quality skills. U will definitely be earning way more than ur present salary working in govt sector,depending on the school and the passion u exhibit

Hi 11Vivek,

The GMAT is one piece of the Business School application - but it sounds as if you have not thought much about the type of Degree that would interest you - and THAT is an important aspect of how you should plan out your studies, applications, etc.

At this point, since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, so 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 that initial score result, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

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