I have just joined GMAT club and I must say you have done a great job by creating this forum. Its so very helpful. The above GMAT study plan is also very good.

Unfortunately I don't think I can follow this study plan because my exam is on 23rd march. It's a retake. In my first attempt I got 480 :(

Could you suggest me a study plan and material so that I can atleast get a minimum of 50 points rise :| or a more realistic rise in scores?

Let me know if you need to know anything more about me that will help you to suggest me a study plan.

Thanks in advance.

-Sincerely,
desperate to improve my GMAT scores !!!


Hi pathfinder2014,

As you are retaking your GMAT, we are assuming that you are thorough with your basics.We would advise you to take as many practice tests as possible.However, more important than taking a mock test is to analyse your performance in the same. If you spend 2 hours on a mock test, spend 6 hours in analyzing the same. Figure out ways by which you can continuously keep improving your score. Make sure you stay consistent with your schedule. This is extremely important.

Also keep reading our blogs at the link below.This will be helpful for your GMAT preparation.

Hey there GMAT Club users,

I have taken my first test this previous December and scored pretty low. I registered for the Economist prep in January to relearn my foundations and scored mid 600's. I am now stuck wondering how I can pursue with my study plan to break the 700+ score. The study assets that I have available are as follows:

MGMAT strategy guides and 4 CATs(also question banks for each guide)
Magoosh (Have taken both CATs and 99% of question bank, would have to reset)
Economist Prep(80% of course complete, in maintenance mode currently answering timed practice questions. Also have 3 more CATs, 5+ live tutoring sessions left, and 5 AWA prompts to be submitted for review)
GMAT Club tests ( Just recently bought with 1000+ questions)

How can I effectively use the study assets above to break the 700+ score level? I believe my foundations are strong and I know my weak areas (percentages, parts problems, number properties, I really need to start keeping an error log though). I can allocate two months of study so I'm not rushed. My last CAT was a 640 from economist with Q48 V31. Thanks!

Hi, I am New to Gmat and have like 0 experience. I started learning for GMAT this weekend. I am pretty good when it comes to Math but I couldnt answer many of the OG questions on my own. Nevertheless after seeing the answers I can fully understand the Logic behind it. Now to my questions I have 3 weeks for the Exam.
I can study fulltime 5 Times a week.
I got all the MGMAT Books of 2013 and the OG 2013.
Shall I do One MGMAT Book after another and answer the OG questions recommended at the end of the MGMAT Books? Or is more Material needed?
I need like 650.
also which Books shall I Focus the most out of the MGMAT Books (verbal and Quant) ?
My weakness is geometry but I dont want to waste time on that alot because I hate that topic.

I spent a month to prepare for the exam (working full time, spent most of the time on studying at the weekends), one month is not going to be enough to get a good score.

Hi Partha,

we would advice you to follow the below steps

1. Start with a mock test. This will help you identify your strong and weak areas
2. If you plan to do self study, get your hands on the best preparatory material available in the market. You can speak to your seniors, get feedback on forums like pagalguy to seek out the best in the market
3. Joining a coaching institute is recommended because it gives a structure to your preparation. Remember cracking GMAT is not just about working hard but working smart as well
4. Make a study time table for yourself that suits you best. You can start with spending 2 hours every day and as you move closer to your test date, start increasing your study hours
5. Keep taking mock tests in real test taking situations. However, more important than taking a mock test is to analyse your performance in the same. If you spend 2 hours on a mock test, spend 6 hours in analysing the same. Figure out ways by which you can continuously keep improving your score
6. Make sure you stay consistent with your schedule. This is extremely important

Hi Propcandy,

The GMAT preparation takes anywhere between 3 to 6 months to score well in the exam. But you would have to be able to devote plenty of time to read and understand the content strategies and rules. More than the fact that one needs to study hard, you also need to study smart to be able to crack an exam like GMAT. And that is where a good preparatory course can help an aspirant preparing for GMAT. A good course and more importantly a good mentor can really give a good direction to one's preparation which is critical for GMAT. As most aspirants prepare for GMAT while they are still in job and therefore time is always a crunch. A good course can help one create a smart study plan to manage and finish the preparation in time.

Hi,

There is no negative marking in the GMAT, and the test taker cannot skip any question. Also, it is a timed test so it is recommended that the test taker takes does not take too much time on a particular question & just makes an educated guess & moves on.

Good Luck!!!

Hi,
I am a complete newbie so I hope this is the right part of the forum to post this question. I took my first practice gmat today with absolutely no practice and about 3 years without any math classes (I refrained from even reviewing basic math rules/formulas before to get a more accurate starting point) and only got a 560 (q33,v35,IR4). To me that seems relatively equally spread, so should I focus on both sections equally while building my study plan? Also, would a 700+ be attainable? I have about 4 months, my exam is scheduled for september 11th.
Any advice would be welcome :)

I am not through with the actual GMAT test but i have read alot of threads on this forum, i would suggest you to make a guess after eliminating options based of provided data in the problem.

I started my GMAT prep about a month back. Am not giving any practice tests but studying all the sections so that am familiar with all the areas and it will also help me brush up my basics. Am planning to give practice tests regularly after I complete my studying.

Would this be a good idea?

Untill you give any mock test, you will not get to know your weak area so i would suggest you to give mocks.
