Hello people

I want to share my gmat experience that I had a couple of days ago. This was a complete self prep done by me wihtout any external help.
One thing is clear it cant be done on your own. I did not score well and think that one of hte reasons for not scoring well was the fact that I did not take any external help.
I did not even have an account on gmatclub. So would never ask any kind of questions over here.
I thought I would be able to do that by just referring the og and the verbal material and I believe that i have failed miserably.

I am writing this post for two simple reasons.
1. I have decided to take help. Help from whoever I can. help while preparing. I have created an account here at gmatclub and decided to be superactive in everything (see am writing a post :P).
I have decided to take help of all the amazing material that gmatclub has and the amazing sort of community that it has.

2. I also want to help others. I know there are tons of people like me who do not seek help and then suffer when they dont recieve good scores. I want to show these folks that you need to seek help. And people will help you score better and achieve that dream college that you have.

I am posting this in this forum because i believe that the previous gmat was an experience for me. Experience in what works and what does not. This time I have decided to make it work for me by seeking help.

Thanks a ton people.
Here begins my journey for my 2nd gmat and hopefully my last.
Cheers :)

Hi yashnasharma14,

Business Schools generally do NOT care if you take the GMAT more than once - and many GMATers do take the GMAT multiple times, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. You can use the experience from your prior studies and 1st attempt to better prepare for your next attempt.

Before you commit to a new study routine, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your practice CAT/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) How did you score on the Official GMAT (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
7) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
8) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hey yashnasharma14

That's a great first step. A thorough prep is very critical for success on the GMAT, as someone wise once said "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe"

You will have to make efficient use of your time. The GMAT club is a great resource & its vastness is quite overwhelming. There is a whole lot of information available here, you will have to sift through it wisely & filter down information between "good to know" & "necessary to know". I wrote a post a while back to help out people to make efficient use of GMAT club resources, i think it will set you on the right path. Below is the link to that post Feel free to ask through posts or PM's, if you ask nicely enough, you will get your answers :)

You should also purchase the ESR for your test & understand your strengths & weaknesses. If you find difficulty in analyzing the ESR, you can post it on the forum & request the experts to analyze it for you.

I hope that helps.

All the best!!
