Hi Santanubarik,

For GMAT preparation, you need to build the concepts/fundamentals before you jump in solving the problems. You can do so by choosing one of the following ways:
1. In person classes/private tutoring
2. Online classes
3. Self paced online preparatory course
4. Book heavy approach

Whatever you choose, make sure that you choose one. Because GMAT tests you on some concepts and fundamentals that you can learn from a course. Most of the preparatory companies including ours offer a free trial of our course. You can take the trial and see if the course suits your needs.

In addition to the preparatory material, buy the Official Guides(both the Official Guide and the Verbal Review), Question Pack 1 and the 4 official mock CATs. They should be an indispensable part of your preparation.

You need close to 3 months to prepare well for the GMAT.
1. Understand the concepts and fundamentals before jumping into problem solving
2. Solve full length CATs including AWA and IR. You can get two free GMAT Prep mock CATs and can purchase two more from mba.com
3. Make sure you solve the official questions from the Official Guide

Hi Santanubarik,

There are several factors that will impact how well you will be able to improve on this initial 480, including the study materials that you use, the length (and consistency of your study) and your score goal. Many Test Takers "want" a score in the 700+ range, but they don't actually "need" a score that high to get into Business School. So if the score that you really need is notably lower than a 700, then your chances of hitting that score could be significantly better.

Since you originally asked about a 700+ though, we can start there. Raising a 480 to a 700+ will take a significant amount of time and effort - and you'll have to make big improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. All of that work will likely take at least another 3 months of consistent, guided study, so we have to discuss your timeframe in more detail:

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
4) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

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