So we are sitting at 8th of January 2018, with 3rd deadline roughly a month far and and the 4th about 3 months, just want to know when will be the best time and strategy to take the GMAT test. I am a Chartered accountant and BCOM Hons. by qualification with over 5 years of workex (including regular internships) and have only little knowledge about how GMAT works. I spent about last 20 days going through the Manhattan material and felt like it was manageable with a little hardwork. I am just targetting 3 colleges HEC Paris, EDHEC and ESSEC for msc finance (Will not go in any other college as I have a stable job, its just a dream to study in the best colleges of world nothing else.). Any help shall be really appreciated.

Hey buddy,

Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news but with Manhattan guides are just scratching at the surface.
Manhattan guides are good to learn the basics / fundamental and the ur score will be defined by your ability to implement those concepts in the time-crunched situation. So, its the application of the concept which is crucial and not just the concepts themselves.

Having said, you can master the application by practicing the questions that are representative of the GMAT questions. Some sources which come to mind are official guides, gmatprep tests, exampacks, question pack, gmatclub tests & manhattan CAT (for verbal only).

Starting from scratch to reach to your desired test score, it may take any where between 1.5 months to 9 months (or even more) but most ideal preparation time is said to be 6 months. Of course, this is a function of your own abilities..many people have scored 760 within a month and many reached their desired score after a year of preparation. But an average 3 months is what most people target.

I guess, with almost 20 days in, you should target taking a mock test to check ur current score and then take it from there.

hope this helps.

Thankyou for the revert brother. Word well taken that i need to take a CAT ASAP. Honestly I did not have any about even how GMAT works 20 days back and I got hold of the Manhattan PDF which I decided to go through only for reference or to just a get a feeler of GMAT. I intend to take up a serious and a focussed approach now. Thank you so much for the heads up.
