Hello all,

First, I'm quite new here, so hi!

Second, I'm targeting Oct. 1st as the day to take my GMAT. I'm about halfway through the MGMAT Number Properties book as of right now, and I got to thinking that maybe before I go any further I should take a practice GMAT test to see where I stand. Is that generally considered a good idea, or is it better advised to wait until you get closer to the actual test date and do all of your mock exams then to build up your endurance?

Welcome! I found it helpful to take a practice exam right away, before any studying. That way, I was able to determine where I needed to focus my studies.

To that end, if you already scored really high (95% +) in the verbal section of the practice test, you may want to devote very little study time to that section, since you'll most likely do well on the real GMAT without a lot of studying.

Good luck!
