Congratulations on the great score!

Would you mind explaining to us what Takt time means? :)

HanoiGMATtutor - Takt Time is an e-GMAT term. It is the average time that you need to answer a question of a particular type correctly. For example - Take Time for SC for most people is between 70 and 90 seconds. This is one of the metrics that we track for our students in Scholaranium.

Why do we recommend tracking Takt Time?


1. It helps students track their improvement in understanding. As a student becomes more proficient with our methods, his Takt Time reduces.
2. It helps students make good decisions on the actual exam if they are running short on time.

I hope the above helps.

Regards,

Rajat Sadana

I see. I do have a few students that have taken e-gmat courses; it is helpful to understand the terms that they have learned from elsewhere. Thanks for the explanation!

So its all a advertising gimmick ?



It is I believe. All success story talks just about eGMAT
Repeated and modified sentences.
I stopped reading them altogether. Can't trust them

EgMAT is great for sentence correction and creating CR base that's it. It is wrong to give candidates hope that 2 months you get 700+ score just from E-gmat. This is false advertising I have taken the course myself I know. Manhattan and Veritas on a different level but I would definitely recommend eGMAT on SC and CR . But beware their false promises 700 takes times it can be achieved with good amount of hours and effort exception if the candidate is not working..

anshumanster - thank you for recommending the e-GMAT SC/CR courses. It feels good when your customers (I hope you are one) recommend you.

To address your other issue, there is no advertising here. This is a debrief by a student without any input from e-GMAT. Nevertheless, let me address the point you have made about time it takes to ace the test. Some individuals take longer while others are done with the GMAT in 2 months or less (or even 1 month). The amount of time required depends on
1. Your starting score
2. Your diligence (huge factor)
3. Your target score (aiming for 720 or lower vs. 760)
Here is some anecdotal as well as statistical data to back this claim

Anecdotal data



1. Mahesh was able to complete our course and ace the GMAT in 1 week. Note, this guy studied full time. He score 700. You can see his interview and visit his LinkedIn profile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nH2XaBOJk4
2. Rohit Nair was able to improve to 730 in 23 days. His debrief is somewhere on the forum.

In fact, we have an entire page of such students on the website. Please note that this data is 3+ years old.
https://e-gmat.com/testimonials/success_lessthan-30day/

Statistical data



There are two distinct data points here. One – e-GMAT internal and the second – GMAC’s.

Data 1 - GMAC’s data

As per GMAC, most people study less than 100 hours for GMAT. Even for those aiming a score of 700 or higher, the average time is 121 hours. Please see the link below:
http://www.mba.com/us/the-gmat-blog-hub ... -gmat.aspx
Remember – for us, one month == 80 hours of commitment.

e-GMAT’s internal data



I just looked at people who purchased our verbal online course in December, and then filtered out how many of them did not access our site in the last month. The result – over seventy five percent of those who purchased Verbal Online in December did not access the site in April. While I cannot disclose numbers, I can tell you that given our volumes, both the numbers are statistically significant.

Why do some people take longer to prepare?



There are a multitude of reasons, with some of them being
1. The extent of score improvement – Typically, a 1 point score (scale of 800) improvement takes between 0.6 to 1.5 hours. So those looking for a higher score improvement take longer. Also those who are not diligent take longer.
2. Studying from different resources – Typically, the more resources you use, the longer you take.
3. Regularity - Students who study 5 or more days per week study improve a lot faster.
4. Plan – Students who spend time creating a plan and understand how to use data improve a lot faster.

Overall, what matters more is the score you get. Once you have a score, few people will worry about the amount of time you put in to get there.

Good luck for your test.

-Rajat

To add - just noticed debriefs from two students who aced the gmat in ~2 months using our courses:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/admitted-to- ... 38006.html
https://gmatclub.com/forum/fought-cance ... 37026.html

The second guy fought through chemotherapy while studying.

Hi winAlways, really enjoyed reading your debrief and thanks for sharing your experience. I now have a couple of questions if you could kindly advise.

1. what was your initial score before day 1 of your preparation? In other words, I’m trying to have a rough idea of the improvement one could potentially have based on your debrief.
2. what’s the total number of hours you work on your GMAT prepreation everyday? You did mention that you take 1-2 hours per session, I wonder how many sessions (of 1-2 hours) you’ve taken throughout your circa 9 weeks of total preparation time.

I also have a two year old boy, who is a rather demanding baby, so I really need to have an effective and efficient plan to follow, and I think your answers might help me to build a realistic plan.

Many thanks in anticipation,
Phrain.

This e-gmat concept sounds interesting. I will give it a trial more that time tracking practice will really improve our efficiency during exam every student should try it.

@egmat
I have a small query regarding inference of your paragraph on Egmat internal data. Do you mean to say that those who buy courses in December do not access same in March since they have already given gmat?
