From LSAT to GMAT [#permalink]

First of all, I would like to apologize if this is too verbose.

Evidently, I'm a newbie to this website. I recently took the LSAT (Score 163:90%). Now, I'd like to take the GMAT. My mistake in studying for the LSAT was to to emphasize quantity over quality and not doing adequate research before starting to study. As a result, I lost valuable time because of my ineffective studying approach. I don't want to repeat this mistake.

For those who have taken the LSAT and have/will take the GMAT, can you please answer the following questions?

1) Should I take a GMAT diagnostic to see where I am? (From which company would be best?)
2) What books/bibles would break down each section and provide an appropriate strategy?
3) What materials are a must? (Members suggest OG11 and MGMAT)
4) Length of time you studied as compared to the LSAT? (This is relative)
5) How much of an advantage does studying for the LSAT give me on this exam since this is a CAT?
6) Any other comments/suggestions?

Any input would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I am also replying your questions pointwise

1. Yes, you should appear for a GMAT diagnostic test and GMATprep (download for free from Official GMAT site) is the best and accurate indicator.
2. For SC-Manhattan SC book, CR-Powerscore Bible and for RC-No specific books
For Quant-OG-10, OG-11 and GMAT club challenges
3. Yes OG-11 and the Official review for verbal and quant are must
4. It is very hard to say
5. Well the CR and RC from LSAT is harder than GMAT. So if you have done well in the LSAT then the chances are you will do good in GMAT.
good luck

I also agree with the post above. I had studied the LSAT for roughly on and off one year, and was scoring +170. I decided law school was not for me at the last minute, and decided to study for the GMAT.

I haven't started yet so I can not tell you how long you will need to prep for it, but I am taking 3 months time for it, and keeping to a routine. The material above are a must, and I am not sure a diagnostic will help much, cause the LSAT one really hurt my motivation when I took it timed. So I will not take the GMAT one, and just stick with my plan.

I thought the LSAT RC was much harder than the GMAT/GRE's so you should be good with that if you did well in it. If you haven't touched quant in a while (which I hadn't) it might be a good idea to take a class or get a couple of books to brush up on it.
