Well, I found out about the site through Twitter @gmat_club and as I'm planning to take the test before March '10, I have been searching the web for information. Currently doing a bridging math course, and my own GMAT preparation. Math is definitely my weak point. Have completed the Grad cert in Management at Brisbane Graduate School of Business, but due to sickness, couldn't complete the MBA. Looking at BGSB again, UQ, or possibly NUCB in Nagoya, Japan. Both are good options for me, but all depends on my Japan Visa/ work location. Looking forward to building strong contacts in both Australia and Japan, as well as develop fluency in the Japanese language. Also trying to break out of the Teach English in Japan, despite the decent cash cow business it is, it's not what I want to be doing in the long term.

hi everyone -

i started posting here a few weeks ago (and lurked for a bit before that), but i never really introduced myself. i just recently got done taking my GMAT's for the first time. I'm 2.5 years out of college (undergrad '07 engineering). i had been working with a small company during this period, but was recently laid off about 3 weeks ago due to the financial health of the company. i spent the last few weeks since then preparing for my gmat, and i hope to enter a full time MBA program in the fall of 2010.

some other stuff - although i was born in the USA, both my parents are immigrants (from south america), and i speak spanish primarily at home. i'm into computers and video games (what a surprise, an engineer into techy stuff, i know), but i also like sports, especially soccer and football. great to meet you all!

hi everyone,

I'm Mary, 23 and in Seattle. I graduated from University of Washington with a 3.8 so I am hoping that a strong GMAT score will help me get into one of my dream schools. I'm planning on doing the guided self study from Manhattan GMAT using their strategy books and the OG/OG Math/OG Verbal along with purchasing the video/audio of their online class sessions to help me prepare. I'm also brushing up on my quant with Math Review For Standardized Tests by Cliffs Notes. My very arbitrary goal is 720, I feel that's obtainable and solid enough to get me in the door anywhere. I'm planning on applying in the first round of 2010, and will take the GMAT in January or so. Wish me luck!

Hello all, I'm Francisco and I found this site through your GMAT club app on iTunes. I started studying for the GMAT the lazy week of July and my test date is October 6th. I plan on applying to FAU's Sports Management program, and my test score range is roughly the 600 range. I've been using a GMAT book called "Ace the GMAT" and it does show ways to break down the easy, medium, and hard verbal and math problems. Then again, your methods might create better results. I will say upfront, I am terrified of this test, I'm not a fan of standardized tests, I believe I encounter a bit of stage fright, which I hope to overcome. My score will essentially determine if I apply by the November 1st deadline for Spring '10, or take this test, take my time with your forums help, with applications, essays, and so forth.

Anyways, I'll be looking aroundthe forums and ANY advice will be welcomed.

Hi everyone,

Found this site on Google, I've been prepping for GMAT for a couple of weeks now. My first choice of a school is LBS and I'm aiming to score at least 700. I'm hoping to take the test in November or December, however since I work full time I don't have much time to study and as it turns out my high school maths is quite rusty.

Hi All,

Came across the site on google and so far it is the best GMAT community site I've stumbled across. so far the information has helped me choose study resources (books, helpful links) as well as provide some insight into how others chose to tackle the various question types, as well as the GMAT overall.

I'm from Sydney, Australia so resources, study partners etc are scarce here so hoping that I can make a contribution here as well as obtain help to some of my own questions.

:-D

Hello Everyone!

I just joined this Forum after reading book reviews on the Official Guide for GMAT on Amazon.

I'm an entrepreneur currently working to start my own e-learning business in Europe.
I'm interested in applying to graduate programs within the next 2-5 years.
I'm particularly interested in economics and government. I am aiming for a top-ten university.

Most of my family members (parents, uncles, cousins) work in engineering or the IT field. Growing up, I've always gotten good grades in math and science, but I think that's only because of my family background (having a "geeky" family convinced me that IT was my field -- but turns out, I really like the humanities/social studies better).

My hobbies include traveling and learning new languages. I have a natural affinity toward learning foreign languages. I speak Chinese fluently and have learned French, German, and Spanish. I'm currently learning Czech and would like to learn Russian and Arabic in the future (sounds crazy, I know!).

I'm planning to take the GMAT in late November / early December. Like most of you here on this forum, I'm aiming for a 700+. To be honest I'm actually quite terrified of this exam. I have a major weakness -- I get panic attacks (seriously). I could do a math a problem, understand it completely, and then an hour later see the same exact problem on a timed exam/test and totally, completely, BLANK OUT. When that happens, I usually just blank out for the rest of the exam, and then the whole exam just becomes a "lost cause" for me. That's my worst nightmare when taking an exam.

Well, that's all for my introduction. I hope to be able to learn and contribute to this forum in the weeks ahead.

:P
