Hi, I am new to this forum and planning to give my GMAT sometime in June. I have purchased the E-Gmat course after some due diligence and currently trying to figure out the practice materials that i should include in my study plan to close the loop on the same and start preparing? I am baffled by plethora of recommendations and not able to zero down on the best resources. Can anyone share a short and crisp list of resources (which can be practices in 3 months) sorted by Verbal, Quant, IR and AWA along with the fact if they are paid or freely available (along with links if any), that would mean world to me?

Hi,

Better to start with giving a free GMATprep test from mba.com to analysis your current level. Every student needs to work very specifically according to his or her strengths and weaknesses.

For best material :

Use GMAT club question bank and directories to your advantage as they contain question from every standard test prep company.

You can use Target Test Prep course for quant as it is the most detailed course you would find for GMAT quant.

For Verbal you can try E-GMAT.

Reading Comprehension is the only topic that no course can teach you in detail. It's success is based on practice and reading technique. So v=work on RC every day irrespective of your busy schedule.

Hi shrey1394,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. For verbal, Your choice of E-gmat is great. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice.

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi shrey1394,

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 discuss the results.

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 apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

If you've purchased the E-GMAT course already then you DON'T need anything else. Go through the reviews of the course on this forum and you'll get some insights into how other have prepared using the same course. https://gmatclub.com/reviews/e-gmat-6

Hello there

Although e-GMAT has 3000+ practice questions with its course, but practice from official source has no match at all. You can buy Official GMAT guides main book, official guide quantitative review for Math and official guide for verbal review for verbal.

Hi shrey1394,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Regarding the best resources, in addition to seeking advice in this thread, take a look at the GMAT Club reviews for the best quant and verbal courses, and also read through some [url=https://gmatclub.com/forum/share-your-gmat-experience-8/?fl=menu] GMAT success stories to see what materials have worked well for other test-takers.

That being said, if you are still looking for a quant course, as AkshdeepS mentioned, TTP would be an awesome resource for you. We have a 5-star rating and are the top-rated quant course on GMAT Club.

If you have any further questions regarding your study plan, feel free to reach out. You also may find it helpful to read this article about
how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

Good luck!
