Hi All,
I'm a full time working employee at a consultancy firm. I recently gave the GMAT after a months preparation and scored very low (550 to be exact). I took jamboree online course.
I'm in no hurry to retake the GMAT as i target 2019 batch, I am thinking of joining GMAT face to face batch first as online course didn't prove very fruitful. However I'm a bit confused as to which center i should join.
Jamboree NOIDA, sec 62 center is very convenient for me as i will save a lot of time in travelling and i find the staff very supportive.

Should i go forward with it or there are better alternatives, please suggest.

Thanks in advance.

Hi jain95vasu,

Many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores. Considering that you spent just 1 month on your studies, a 550 isn't bad (the average score on the Official GMAT hovers around 540-550 most years). Since you're not planning to apply to Business School for some time, you have plenty of potential study time available - which is good. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1 How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
2) What is your goal score?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
4) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

Study Details
1) Initially my CAT score was 480 (Quant-36 and Verbal-24), after that it remained around 520-560 (Quant-40-42, Verbal-27). Since I was running short on time, i was not able to give sufficient CAT.
2) I'm aiming for 700+ score.
3) I want to do MBA in finance, but i have not finalized any colleges as such. However I aim to go to US and Europe colleges.
Also there are some colleges like Kelley business school who are channel partner of CFA. Their MBA in finance covers a portion of CFA as well, so it seems like a good option.
4) I have to travel a lot due to my work. If I'm able to avoid it i can give 2-3 hrs. on weekdays and 6-7 hrs on weekends.

Looking forward for your advise.
Thanks.

Hi jain95vasu,

Raising a 550 to a 700+ will likely take at least another 3 months of consistent, guided study - and you'll have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. If you travel a great deal, then a 'fixed', live GMAT Class might not be the best option for you - and you might want to consider online options and/or Guided Self-Study Courses that would let you keep your study schedule flexible.

1) Do you want to start your studies back up immediately or at a later date?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

I took a 10-15 days gap after my GMAT, so I'm ready to start immediately since concepts are still fresh and if I delay it any further it might take me extra time.

But I need a proper study plan to follow as i do not want to make the same mistake again. Also, my verbal (both SC and CR) is very weak so i want to start with it first.
As you correctly mentioned that 'fixed', live GMAT Class might not be the best option for me, so how should i proceed keeping in mind the above points.

Waiting for your response.
Thanks

Hi jain95vasu,

When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different options. From what you describe, an online Program that would allow you the flexibility to study at your own pace (and when your schedule allows it) would likely make the most sense. Most GMAT Companies offer some type of free materials (practice problems, Trial Accounts, videos, etc.) that you can use to 'test out' a product before you buy it. We have a variety of those resources at our website (www.empowergmat.com). I suggest that you take advantage of all of them then choose the one that best matches your personality, timeline and budget.

If you have any additional questions, then you can feel free to contact me directly.
