GMAT AFTER CAT  [#permalink]

New post 09 Jun 2018, 08:16
I took cat(exam for iims) in november,2017. I had prepared for it for about 3-4 months and ended up scoring 86 percentile with verbal below 80. I scored 93-94 in quants. Now I have decided to give GMAT. I want to apply for January semesters thus i have to apply before August, so I will have to take this exam by the end of july. Given to the fact that I have a maximum of 45-50 days for preparing GMAT, can anyone suggest me, what should be my schedule right now, considering I prepared for CAT which means I have basic knowledge of certain topics. I dont have much time to solve many books thus I am relying mostly on OG plus GMATclub and ready4gmat app.
Also, will the subsciption of gmat toolkit give me access to gmatclub tests??

Hello antreev,

First of all, I have given my CAT ( For iims ) exam last year and scored 91% overall with 93 % in VA and decided to give my GMAT without much studying like preparing for 5 days at the max . But I ended up with a miserable score of Q47 & V12 . So don't compare CAT exam VA with GMAT exam VA because it's completely different. Quant will be okay you just need to brush up few concepts and regularly give sometime.
For VA I will suggest to take some online course (I have taken E-Gmat) which is good enough to cover Sentence correction and critical reasoning well .

My suggestion is don't hurray take your time and when you start scoring 700+ then only take the GMAT date . I think 45-60 days (300 hrs -350hrs) will be enough for VA if you are not working. Lastly, I am on the same boat preparing for the GMAT.

All the best ?

Hey Antreev

Since you are beginning with preparation, I would recommend you to do the following things.

Download the GMATPrep software and take one of two free tests you get. Once you have
a preliminary score, the experts on the forum will be able to give you a clear idea on how
to proceed. Additionally, for tests, you should purchase the GMAT Prep Collection Bundle
(contains 2 exam packs - EP1 and EP2 and a question pack)

Verbal Section Prep
You should read the Manhattan SC book and PowerScore CR Bible for basic strategy in SC and CR.
For RC, you could refer to the below-given link ... 83101.html

For practice, you can find all the questions at GMATClub. You should use the Timer feature to
time yourself once you are familiar with the concepts.

Some links you might find useful for practice.
SC: ... 29750.html
CR: ... 28861.html
RC: ... 29341.html

Quant Section Prep
Link to GMAT Quantitative Mega-Thread(beneficial in understanding concepts) ... 44512.html

Follow Bunuel. Solve all the questions in his signature. They contain some awesome questions
that give you the true taste of GMAT(Baker's Dozen, 12 Easy Pieces, Fresh Meat etc..)
Make it a habit to sure you solve each and every question he puts up on the forum to improve
your accuracy once you have completed the concepts.

For more details on the GMAT Toolkit you could visit this link ... 82830.html

For GMATClub test access, you could redeem 80 points or 25 kudos. More on Kudos

Hope this helps you!

You've got what it takes, but it will take everything you've got

Hi Antreev,

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