Hello everybody,

I recently decided that I will apply to a business school. After doing a lot of researching i found this wonderful forum so i registered.

I've already done several example tests and I was able to identify my biggest leaks - English grammar and especially essay writing. I've read most of the treads regarding the preparation strategies, book and etc but i still have some questions:

- i have plenty of time for preparation as i am still a BA student, so can you tell me which is the best book to start if i am 750-800 score.
- i am not native speaker and i have a hard time writing essays. What is the best way to prepare for them?

Thank you for the help in prior.

Ivan

Ivan -welcome to GMAT Club.

Definitely have the right resources for you:
1. Books: top-gmat-prep-books-guides-reviews-comments-77703.html
2. Verbal Books: best-gmat-verbal-prep-books-reviews-recommendations-78094.html
3. How to write GMAT Essays (not application essays): how-to-get-6-0-awa-my-guide-64327.html

Would recommend that you also look at this post: books-to-read-improve-verbal-score-and-enjoy-a-good-read-76079.html

You may want to get a regular Grammar book to get yourself up or alternatively Kaplan Verbal Foundations for just grammar and then Manhattan GMAT SC for SC strategies.
