 FROM Road to My MBA: Getting ready for the GMAT Yes, I’ve started my GMAT studies!Since last monday I’m studying an average of 2,8 hours/day, resulting so far into 14 hours of study (including 60 practice questions). My goal is to study around 160 hours so I’m still trying to keep the pace since it’s been a while that I don’t focus to study that much.For the moment, I’m using the Magoosh website to watch the videos and to practice some questions.As I’m trying to study as much as possible for the next 2-3 months (I’m really not willing to study more than 3 months) my study plan is based on the 1 month GMAT Study Plan from Magoosh’s website. My idea is to cover all the areas of GMAT in 1 – 1,5 months and then do tons of questions.I’m trying to keep the control of everything I’ve studied so far and the amount of hours spent. I’m kinda an Excel freak (just kidding) so I’ve made up some tables where I can understand my development. Based on this I’ll be able to schedule the exam. Below is one example:Tomorrow, I’m planning to take the full-length GMAT on the GMAC software, thus I’ll be able to see in general what are my weakness and strengths.*** The picture in the top of this post is very emblematic for me. He’s Dunga, the Brazilian national team captain, holding the trophy after the victory against Italy at the 1994 World Cup in USA. Although I was only 5 years old I can remember every match we played in that World Cup. Next week, the 2014 World Cup starts again (here in Brazil!!!!) and I’ll probably stop studying to watch some matches. But as Brazil won in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002 (hopefully 2014 as well), I will beat the GMAT in my personal challenge against myself!

 FROM Road to My MBA: Back to back Yes, I´m alive.It´s been more than a month, actually 51 days, without writing on this blog. I have no excuse for that, really need to come back here more often. Despite of that, I´ve read every single posts of my fellows bloggers who are keeping me motivated during my GMAT study. Special mentions to Grantmeadmission, Texaswannabecali, Naija MBA Gal and Top Dog MBA.A lot of things happened in my life during my absence, some which matters to the MBA subject and some who does not. Let me show the highlights:1. Got a job promotion: Yes! Yes! Yes! Now, I´m finally a Senior Consultant, although I´ve been working as one for a year at least. Now it´s official and it´s a nice information to add to my resumé.2. Created a logo for the blog: Ok. It´s not THE logo, but it´s nice to have a picture over there.3. More than 80% done of my GMAT study plan: As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I have a goal of studying about 160 hours to take my first GMAT test and I’m almost there. My “G Day” is planned to be the 23rd of August.4. Watched some games of the World Cup: For sure that was the highlight of June/July. As I am a fanatic of football (“soccer” for some of you), having the oportunity to watch World Cup games in my country (and some in my city) was such a huge experience. To name a few, I’ve watched live Croatia x Mexico, USA x Germany, and the Final at Maracanã. Really really great!—————————————————————————————————————————–Right now, the only thing that matters in my life is to beat the GMAT. I’m pretty obsessed for that and I think I will only rest in peace after getting my target score. Since I’ve less than a month for the test, I will try to focus on practicing as many questions as I can.All the other steps are in second place right now.

 FROM Road to My MBA: The GMAT experience 560 (Q33 V33). Yes, that was my score on my first GMAT attempt and that is the reason I´m retaking the GMAT in mid-November (not decided the date yet).I don´t know what exactly happened but I left about seven unanswered question in Quantitative section, even though that this did not happen during my practice tests. One thing I know is that I have no excuse to such a low score so I will try again in a month. This low score made change almost all of my plans of dividing my applications between round 1 and round 2 and now I will apply exclusively on round 2.Besides studying for the GMAT, my main goal for this week is to talk with one of my bosses to be my recommender. As I work in a consulting firm there are several managers that I could ask for a letter of recommendation, but I am not sure they are all “open minded enough” to understand my decision of pursuing a MBA in USA. After a long time of thinking, I´ve decided that one of them would understand me more and probably will be a good help during the process.Since I have no time to lose, tomorrow I will probably have a lunch with him and have a frank conversation about my MBA. Depending on how well this conversation goes, I will talk about the letter of recommendation.That´s it for the moment.Let me go back to the GMAT. Ciao.
