Hello everyone

I am planning to sit for the gmat in the middle of March 2018. I already have the OG Bundle and the manhattan bundle and maybe, maybe, I will purchase an egmat course.

I am currently studying Industrial Engineering so i think I am good at math but I don't expect to score high in the verbal if I do a test right now.

I wonder how much time do you estimate it will take me to score 730+? I need to know because I would like to start planning my "hollidays" as soon as possible. One thing you should take into consideration is the fact that I will be devoting full time and attention to the books.

Thank you for your answers. Bye bye

One last comment, it's for the 2+2 program.

Hi patto,

Many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores, although the amount of time that you would need to hit your score goal might be more or less than that. It's worth noting that the Quant section of the GMAT is NOT a 'math test' - it's a 'critical thinking test' that requires lots of little calculations as you work through it - so while being 'good at math' does not necessarily mean that you will automatically score at a high level in the Quant section.

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 (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.
