I am Thang from Hungary. I am just finishing my Bachelor studies in Finance and Accounting and going to apply for universities abroad. I would like to achieve a decent GMAT score like everyone else here. I am glad that I have found this incredible club, hopefully I can learn a lot from you and find a lot of useful stuffs that help my preparation. I plan to take the GMAT in August and hope to crush it :-D
Good luck to everyone and looking forward to gain valuable insights into the GMAT.

Hi all.

I'm WorkSmart from the USA. I graduated with a bachelors in business finance two years ago. After that I worked Finance and Accounting for a publicly traded manufacturing company that specializes in military applications and government contracts. Before my bachelors I worked as a salesman and then as a blue collar Welder for a manufacturing company :)

I took a practice test from Princeton review that indicated I would get roughly a 530 on the real test. I made plans to attend a business school that would accept that score from someone of my background (they are roughly ranked 25 in terms of MBA's).

When I walked out of the test center I couldn't believe it. Not only did the real test feel easier than my practice test, but I got a score of 640! I was accepted to the school I planned to go to, but with this high score I decided that going to Harvard was not just a dream but a real possibility. I put down my job and have been studying for a month now. No guts no glory!

My wife is really counting on me to get this done right. I'm here to humbly seek some sage advice and learn what I need to succeed before I take the GMAT for a second time and aim for a 700+.

According to my results on the real GMAT, and how I feel with practice questions, my weakness seems to be quant. Especially data sufficiency questions that have to do with equation writing and equation simplification.

Welcome to GMAT Club Guys!
Here is a quick overview of the benefits available to all members - gmat-club-member-benefits-in-detail-218149.html

Worksmart - don't get your wife's expectations too high. You don't want to build up too much risk and have 2 dings in 1 ;-) They are looking for a lot more than the GMAT score at top 10 schools since everyone is applying with a 700, droves of folks with 700 - you will probably stand out more with a 640, frankly.... and quitting a job should always be the last resort measure as that has an implication on your package, LOR's, resume, etc. I hope you took a break and did not actually quit.

Good Luck!

Thanks BB. Hehe it's okay I do well under pressure. Yeah from the research i've done I will fit the bill in other categories and have a unique story to articulate (blue collar tech degree and touch labor experience in teenage years, plus bachelors degree and corp finance/accounting/marketing work later on)... But I see potential to raise the GMAT score so i'm trying that before I apply. Figured it is the considerate thing to do. Don't want to walk in with a 640 if I didn't give it my all yet.

Quitting the job was something that had to be done eventually in order to relocate to where my wife works. This new area is also better for my career. Robert Half is practically beating down my door asking when I'm ready to jump in to the market. I can get some good LOR's from my previous company VP and the corporate controller. I got an award certificate from the VP also for fixing some issues. It's a publicly traded company and had a positive impact on EBITDA so I think it will be nice to present. I also got to do some marketing work for them and publish/create some of their commercials (voice is in it and did the editing). I heard B-schools really like well rounded applicants, and I did all this at a public company so I think it will have weight. My 2 month time gap will look reasonable I believe. Really the relocation and time gap is a two-birds one stone kind of thing :)

Hi all,

I am a researcher at Ohio University was told about how awesome this community was by a few of my MBA friends. It truly is amazing how helpful everyone is. I am conducting a study that overlaps with many of the goals everyone has. That being, I am conducting a study looking at study habits and it provides free prep material for the GMAT. I figured this would be a good place to post it. I can give back to the community and also be greatly helped in the process (i.e., getting more participants). bb posted a thread in the "general GMAT Questions and Strategies" forum called "Study about Study Habits- Free Materials." If anyone is interested in helping the science on studying/self-regulated learning progress while also potentially increasing there math ability check it out!!

Also, since we are posting goals. My current research goal is to find more efficient ways for individuals to study/ for organizations to provide more efficient training.

Hi everyone! This is Ankita here. I am a Senior Analyst with 3 years of experience. I also have my own start up. I recently gave a Kaplan practice test and scored 610 and I am aiming above 700. I am planning to take the GMAT test on 5th October. I don't have any guidance as such and no experience or strategy how to move forward. It will be really great if anyone can share a detailed 2 month study plan which I can follow on a daily basis. I will be highly grateful!

Hi everyone,

This is Nischal from Mumbai, India. I have already given my GMAT last year and got a 620 (Q47,V28). I am planning to retake the test around November end this year. One of my mistakes from the previous experience was that I was not active on GMAT club and dont want to repeat the same this time hence giving it a start. A little bit about my background, I am an engineer in IT but have 3 years of work experience in sales and marketing as that is what excited me more. I am aiming for a 700+ score and targeting the top 35 business schools.

As a re taker right now I have just started with analyzing my ESR carefully and focus more on my weak areas while also keeping pace with my strengths. If any re-takers here could recommend me anything I would really appreciate it.

Ankita,

I just read your post and I can give you a few suggestions. Figure out your weakness and also have a target score individually for Quant and Verbal. Focus on your weakness but don't let go of your strength. If verbal is your weakness you could try E-GMAT, they have a really good and extensive verbal course which could help you a lot .

Nice to have a platform seeing people who are on the same page as me. Agus here from Indonesia, staying in Singapore, I am working as a tutor and I am about one and a half month into my preparation for the GMAT. Has been struggling for quite a bit in my preparation, especially with verbal section. Hope to get as much insight as possible from like-minded people here. :)

hello
i gave gmat in the month of april this year scored a 600 only(v28,q49) ,very low compared to my mocks ranging from 630 at start to 720 at the end. i have already vested in lot of amounts in magoosh and egmat buti m still not confident for a retake
every new coaching i join teaches the same concept ,but when it comes to 700 level questions i really struggle a lot and not to say timing is my greatest issue in sc sometimes i can spot in just 60 seconds where as my average pace is of 2mins 30 seconds
i struggle in rc a lot , my accuracy in individual section is around 80 percent while in a mixed bag its just around 65 to 70 percent ,
please help with some tips to improve :a coaching material woudnt be an option i guess

thanks
regards

Hey everyone,

I joined this forum and will post to hold myself accountable. Also, this forum was a big inspiration for me trying the exam again. I read several stories of folks studying for years taking the exam 5+ times.

Dec 2014 - 590 - V39 - Q33 - AWA 5 - IR 7
--Used Kaplan + Magoosh, was scoring low 6XX on Kaplan and on the official exam pack one received 620 and 670, was really disappointed with my actual score.

Jul 2015 - 570 - Did worse in verbal
--Thought that fundamental math was where I needed to work, used Khan Academy heavily to focus on non-GMAT math, timing felt off on test day, also used Manhattan books.

I'm now doing a last "hoorah" with the exam and will take it 3 times within each 16 day period coming up in Oct/Nov 2016. My plan is to use Magoosh again, but also go through questions with GMAT Quantum. Basically, just drill problems, track errors and study those concepts thoroughly. My target is 670.

Target Schools are Top EU MBA programs (US/EU dual citizen), mainly Cambridge, IESE, IMD. Fallback options include the online program at IE or skipping an MBA altogether and transferring internationally at my company (F100 FP&A currently).

This forum is a great resource! Good luck to all!

Hey Folks

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask my question. Pl redirect me to the right thread if this is not a right one.

Question: Need some inputs if Global MBA program is a good choice for me.

Background: 2008 UG candidate from an Indian University. 7.9/10 CGPA. 2013 PGDM candidate from One of top 20 B-Schools in India. Second best college on east coast. (Atleast at the time i attended). Currently married & have a kid under 1Yr old. Turned 31 yesterday but young at heart. Over 7Yrs Work exp spread across different profiles ranging from IT consultant, Sales Manager & IT Project Manager. Looking for a more focused global 1Yr - MBA program (NYU Stern Tech MBA/INSEAD/Richard Ivey or the likes). Prime reason for going for second MBA - Going Global. I understand that incurring a 50-60Lakh loan at this stage of career/Life is a substantial burden given I have a kid & a mortgage, but willing to take the leap looking at a longer term (10Yr) perspective.
Currently i am on the verge of booking my GMAT slot towards April End and kick start application process by May 9th in line with 2nd round deadline for INSEAD for Jan 2019 intake.

Before taking the leap need suggestions from fellow aspirants, if you have any specific qualified remarks on the path I chose & few suggestions on schools I realistically stand a chance.

Thanks in advance.
