Hi
So it’s kind of self explanatory.
I am preparing for the GMAT test to apply in some masters in finance (european business schools) but I am also working full time from 8 to 5 (sometimes 6 depending the workload).
I am hoping for a minimum of 700 (considering that I want to put it in my resume and strengthen my application for the masters), but I am also a non native english speaker, I also intend to apply for the 2020 academic and I will have 2 years experience.
I know it might be extremly difficult, but I’ll give it my best especially that I want to work on IB or consulting, and frankly I don’t find my job interesting enough.
If you can please suggest me some study plans that worked for you to obtain a good gmat score I’ll be thankful :’(

Hi Fatineel,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. You should study for around 3-4 months to achieve your target score. You should start by taking a GMAT Mock once. You can now then know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and TTP as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

If you are looking for a good course in verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice.

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi Fatineel,

I agree that since you are just starting out with your GMAT prep, you should begin by familiarizing yourself with the GMAT and then taking an official GMAT practice exam. Once you take the practice test, feel free to report back here with the score breakdown, and I can provide some further advice.

You also may find it helpful to read this article: How to Score a 700+ on the GMAT — A Mini Guide for Success.

Good luck!
