HI Guys,

I have been following this forum carefully for about 3 months and have been motivated by countless stories however, I am still struggling with the GMAT.

To begin my story, I have been studying for the GMAT on and off for a year. I used Princeton Review for my studies and scored 550, 680, 630, 650 & 680 so I felt I was ready for the test and registered. This couldn't be farther from the truth as I took the Official mocks and scored 560 & 580. I started to research and found myself on here reading a lot of stories of the pain and struggles behind taking the GMAT. At this point my exam was 3 weeks away and I started to panic. I realized I had completely missed the point of the exam (logic and patterns) and focused on formulas. I got an ORION membership, practiced and scored 600, 610, 620 & 640 on their exams - I didn't have time to complete another official mock. Needless to say, I didn't score anywhere close to 600 on my official exam and I was devastated however, I am determined to meet the round 3 application deadlines with the hope that I get close to the 700 mark in my second attempt.

Please can you advise me on how best to approach the GMAT ? I understand the concepts but struggle with application and tend to panic about the time. Also which tutoring program is the best out there or can really help me boost my score. I will put in as many hours as required.

PLEASE HELP!

Well GMAT can be a tough cookie to crack , but with 3 months of rigorous preparation a 660+ to 750+ score is very achievable, depending upon your study strategy and the hours you put in.
In case you are not able to get a decent score in the first attempt there's no need to panic. The key is understanding the pattern, using the right resources and creating a solid study plan.
Perhaps you did not use the right study strategy to prepare for the same. You have mentioned that you prepared the test on and off throughout the year - GMAT, as you must have realized needs a steady approach so creating the right study plan might just change the game for you.
As for the preparation, your first step should be to understand the GMAT exam format and pattern as you stated that you have been giving GMAT mock and have ORION membership so you must be aware of the pattern, if not then it really important you look out for it as it will help you have a clear grasp of the competitive spirit of the exam.
Talking about the resources, here is a direct feedback from our clients.
A mix of e-GMAT, Manhattan Prep, Magoosh and Crack Verbal works the best apart from the official GMAT guide.
We spoke to many of our clients who could notch a 700+ GMAT Score ( Only 11%-15% of the test takers are able to reach this milestone), and have created a comprehensive post on how to create a study strategy to reach a competitive GMAT Score.
