Hi ujji0074u.

As you are aware, there are a variety of ways to prepare for the GMAT, and which would be best for you depends on your learning style, you time frame, and how much you want to spend.

Which would be best for you also depends on where your skills are currently in relation to what they would have to be in order for you to hit your score goal.

Accordingly, to get a better sense of what you need to do in order to hit your score goal, you should think about what goal might make sense for you and take an official GMAT mock test from here https://www.mba.com/exam-prep/gmat-offi ... and-2-free to see how your skills are currently. Before you take that mock test, you should familiarize yourself with the GMAT and do some practice questions of each type, so that when you take the test you are actually doing a reasonable job of answering questions rather than figuring out how the basics of how to go about answering the questions as you take that test.

Once you have a sense of how much you will need to do in order to hit your score goal, you will be in a better position to determine what approach to use.

I can say that many people find that using a self-study course works well for preparing for the GMAT. When using a self-study course, you work at your own pace, and, at the same time, such a course gives you structure, instruction, and many practice questions. To choose a self study course, you could check out the course reviews here. https://gmatclub.com/reviews/gmat_courses/

What in case of some problem while preparing, isn't a live class or some kind of mentorship would be helpful.

You can think of going EDUSHSHTRA course. But do read reviews. They have combo course for cat and gmat. But Do your own research.

So listen, Do these things :-

1) Join elitesgrid classes for CAT. I am damn sure about it that you will get 100% satisfaction for the course. Give the CAT in November and XAT in Jan.

2) CAT and XAT results will be out by Jan so you will be aware whether to give gmat or not.

3) You won’t need to join Quants course after preparing for CAT quants. For verbal join Egmat if there is a need.

4) no point giving gmat in September since college application would have already started.

Hope I helped you. Click on Kudos to help me

Thanks, that's indeed helpful. But can I just go for verbal from egmat as I am thinking of going for GMAT and as it is valid for 5 years (and will take admission within coming 2 years) or give again gmat after cat. XAT not taking into consideration. its a very different exam or it seems so. I just wanted to leverage my cat prep into gmat or vice versa.

Absolutely, it would be helpful, but how helpful depends on your style, and on what you have to achieve in order to hit your goal.

If you are 30 points from your goal at the beginning, then you could probably work on a few things on your own and hit your goal.

If you are 200 points from your goal at the beginning, then probably you will have to prepare for months, and could get some use out of having someone show you not only how to answer questions but also how to approach preparing. A live class can be useful. In many cases, working with a one-on-one mentor from time to time as one prepares on one's own can be more useful.

You have to figure out as you go along what makes sense for you.

I will suggest you to go for CAT first and then go for GMAT. CAT studies will help you in gmat in case of quants. But be sure about the decision you make. If it’s CAT give your 100% if it’s GMAT give your 100%. Cause after giving cat may be you will down on motivation. So give the exam which you feel like giving and which is more important to you.

I gave CAT last year and got average %ile and since have only 3 years of experience which puts me in the middle of cat and gmat. So will surely cat this year but also thinking of trying gmat before or after....Are you sure about elitesgrid and do they provide batch on different timings. And How about the princeton review for gmat?

Yes damn sure about elitesgrid. It’s an online platform. They have live classes on WizIQ platform from 10 PM to 12. Those classes get recorded also. Also you can do your own research. Didn’t hear about Princeton review. But for Verbal egmat. For Quants gmat I think there are many Targettestprep and Empowergmat. But I won’t suggest you for Quants. Since Quants is of basic level. Even much lower than CAT exam. Give gmat after CAT I will say that.

I will say focus on one thing at a time, I will suggest you to give gmat after CAT. Since you are not giving gmat before June 2019 so you won’t be eligible for colleges for September 2019 Intake. So give CAT then in April 2020 give gmat, opt for egmat course after your cat result. You will have sufficient time to cover. Don’t mix things. Target one at a time.
