Hi all,
I've just started preparing for Gmat, I've been seeing the materials and it's overwhelming. I've talked to a few people and everyone guides in a different direction, it's confusing. Guide me through the process and what all materials to use, What all B-schools to target! How much time will it take to prepare!

TIA.

Hi Apppyyyiiieee ,

Welcome to GMAT Club :)

To answer your question, first take a diagnostic test. Download the free version of GMATPrep mocks from mba.com and then give the first test.

Based on your score, you need to determine your weak area.

Once done, you can go with following link: https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... beginners/

Ideally, GMAT Preparation requires 3 months of practice. But it may change depending upon your workload and other stuffs.

Take the test and get back to us in case you need further help.

All the best. Happy learning!!

First you should take a diagnostic test and report the result here. Depending on how you perform in that, we can guide you on how to prepare for the test. If you already know the various question types that are tested in GMAT, you might want to take our free practice practice for diagnostic purposes:

Also, you can take our free profile evaluation here to help you figure out your target schools etc:

Hi Apppyyyiiieee,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

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