Hi RoxyChaudhary,

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 www.mba.com (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 take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hi RoxyChaudhary,

I agree that you should first familiarize yourself with the GMAT and take an official MBA.com practice exam. Your experience taking that test will give you a good idea of what to expect on the GMAT, and the results will serve as a baseline GMAT score.

Once you report back with your baseline GMAT score, I’d be happy to provide some further advice.

In the meantime, you may find my article about how long to study for the GMAT helpful.

Please reach out with further questions.

Good luck!

I do not think that there is a prescribed way to start your preparation. I will share my method and you are free to use it in case it sounds good to you.
I got hold of OG and spent a week reading the concise theory provided at the beginning of each section and solving the example problems. Once that was done, I took up a CAT test that mba.com offers for free. This helped me understand areas that I needed to work on. In my case, I scored good in Quant but dismal in Verbal. There on I decided to focus more on verbal. You may also decide to take some help based on your score. With my base score, I was confident that I could get a decent score with self-study.
