Do a mock test, see what your weaknesses are then proceed from there. I started with Manhattan gmat books, they are a great intro to GMAT. Go through the material and then report back. After a few weeks you will know where to focus and then you can do some research to see which course if prob best for your needs.

Good luck!

Hi jaiatluri,

The GMAT and the GRE have a lot in common, so you will likely be able to use some of what you learned during your GRE studies during your GMAT prep. Since many Business Schools now accept either the GRE or the GMAT as part of the application process, if your GRE score is strong enough then you might not need to take the GMAT.

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 download 2 for free from 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 4 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?
4) How did you score on the GRE?

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

Hi jaiatluri,
Now many of b-schools do accept even the GRE scores . If you have already done well on the GRE , then you may not have to take the GMAT .Incase you decide to take the GMAT ,
