Hi arunnair1392,

To start, you will likely receive more of a response if you start a new post-thread (instead of piggy-backing on this one). You should include all of the relevant information about how you have been studying (the materials you have used, your practice CAT/mock scores) and your Goals (the Schools you want to apply to and when you want to apply).

Since your Test is in just a few days, you don't have enough time to push back your Exam Date or properly make any big changes to how you approach the Exam, so you should NOT try to 'cram' your studies. You would be better served by doing some light review and getting some extra rest - so that you can go into Test Day clear-headed and ready to work. While you might not hit your Goal Score on this attempt, you should take careful note of everything that occurs on Test Day; you can use that information to better prepare for your next attempt.

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

Hello everyone,

Is there a way in which I can randomly pick 10-12 quant and 10-12 verbal questions and practise in a targeted amount of time? The same way we use GMAT club quizzes but with the entire question bank available on GMAT club? Has anyone tried any such model? I am trying to improve my timing per question. TIA

Regards,
GJ

I would not spend more than 3 months preparing for the GMAT. However I would make sure you have a good English language proficiency. V15 can indicate that you may need to spend some time there before specifically preparing for the GMAT.

Hello, I gave my GMAT after 2.5 months of prep and scored a 540 (Q37, V27). I am planning to re-appear in about a month and a half, and need help with planning my approach to study.

I do know what went wrong, but don't know what's the best way to move ahead with the study.

What went wrong:
1) I am working a full-time job which requires international travel. Obviously, my studies got hit while I was traveling.
2) I didn't have a proper study plan and was just going with the flow.
3) My initial target score was very low - I thought I cannot do this so I created a self-made barrier that I cannot score beyond 640.
4) I had to start from very basic - touched books after 7 years, and had limited time to practice.
5) I didn't finish the entire OG (especially Quant and RC)
6) My RC and SC concepts are still weak.
7) I took 5 practice tests along with a couple of quizzes and scored almost the same in every test! What's the point in giving then?
And so on...

What I need help with (and would be most grateful if someone can point me to already available resources, etc.)
1) Study plan!!! I need to create a rock solid study plan that would help me tackle, measure and quantify my study on a daily basis. What should finish when? When should I take the practice tests, etc.? I feel like a day-to-day plan will help me most rather than a weekly plan, but I don't know how to create one.
2) What are the best resources for me? I was thinking of taking up e-GMAT verbal online plan, but not sure if that's right for me.
3) RC, RC, RC! I have tried almost every trick explained on most of the forums but still unsuccessful. My current rate is 20 - 30% correct answers.
4) Some expert advise(s) + motivation is most welcome :)

Also, a quick profile summary/career history - just in case a great idea pops in your head looking at this - and you can suggest what colleges I can apply to easily with a minimum GMAT score.
1) 7 years of work experience in strategy consulting and account management
2) 5+ years of work experience with Deloitte where I experienced fastest career growth (2 promotions in 4 years, support services)
3) 5+ years of volunteer experience and community service towards Child Education in India. I have also organized and participated in various workshops and events. Currently working as a facilitator for a teacher development program for private affordable schools

++ The Schools I am currently targetting:
1) NUS, Nanyang in Singapore
2) ISB, IIMs in India
3) McGill, Rotman in Canada
4) AGSM, Melbourne Business School in Australia
5) Rotterdam in the Netherlands

Always grateful to this forum as I received a lot of help and was able to practice a lot. Any help is most appreciated.

Cheers!
Shreya

What went wrong:
1) I am working a full-time job which requires international travel. Obviously, my studies got hit while I was traveling and I didn't have a regular schedule.
2) I didn't have a proper study plan and was just going with the flow.

6) My RC and SC concepts are still weak.
7) I took 5 practice tests along with a couple of quizzes and scored almost the same in every test!
8) In Quant, my weak areas are probability, set theory, coordinate geometry, and I am not so confident with number properties especially in DS.

My GMAT exam is during the first week of August and after much studying I took a test to see where I stand and I scored a miserable 240. I am a full time employee and that's my only livelihood for now.

What would be the best method of working and studying at the same time? Also the best available approaches to boost my score from a measly 240 to a 700? Exam takes place 3 months from now.

Thanks.

Hi All !
I need some good piece of advice.
I had been preparing for GMAT for the last 3-4 months.
I am done with all the material they had provided and Official Guide as well.
I took all the 6 official mocks and 4-5 other mocks as well and had been scoring in the range of 600-650.
However, on the exam day things got messed up. I just wasn't nervous.
I got way below 530 on my actual test.
I need some help to plan for a retake.

Any leads would be of great help !
Thank you!
