Hello, everyone!

Being 36, I'm probably an "old dog" here, looking to FINALLY earn an MBA after my first attempt failed (my thesis, on a technicality!) 15 years ago. I received my B.A. in Psychology from Dowling College in Oakdale, NY, and was I guaranteed admission to their MBA program since I had an undergraduate degree from them. Taking the GMAT then was a formality, so I didn't bother to study, and still scored a 680 overall (I don't remember the breakdowns, but know the test has changed substantially since then).

I have been a freelance information technology trainer for the past 7 years, after working the previous 8 years as a retail manager, but with today's economy work is sporadic at best. In order to obtain a teaching position at area colleges, I need to have a Masters degree or higher. I am looking to be accepted into an AACSB accredited school, and feel that a GMAT score of 700+ will be necessary coupled with my 3.4 undergraduate grade point average.

I do not plan on applying to Tier 1 or Ivy League schools, as I cannot afford $100,000+ and several schools here in the South boast excellent programs with a very good starting salary for graduates.

I'm looking forward to learning from you and to contributing to the forums.

Hi everyone

I'm planning to take the GMAT in about 4 months. Personally, I think is fantastic. I´m not a native speaker, actually, I'm takinh a 6 month off in an English speaker country in order to improve my English skills. I have an undergraduate in engieneer and I've worked for 6+ years as a financial consultant and financial manager. I'm planing to follow the guide for novices you did and I'm going to try to learn the most of your experience and posts.

Thanks.

Hi BB,

As I already said in the "GMAT Study Plan for GMAT Novices - Start your GMAT Journey" I just joined a few days ago, after reading your reviews of the Official Guide for GMAT on Amazon. I’ve just found the Plan for GMAT novices and I think is extremely useful to me.

I’m not a native speaker and actually I’m taking six months off in order to improve my English profiency in a English-speaker country (stuying in a English Language School). I would like to start to study for GMAT at the same time so I can take advantage I’m a student again.

I’m planing to take GMAT in 4 months and I already bought some of the books you’ve recommended:
1. OG12
2. OG for GMAT Verbal Review 2nd Ed.
3. OG for GMAT Quantitative Review 2nd Ed.
4. Kaplan GMAT 2010 Premiere Live Online
5. MGMAT Prep Guides - CR
6. MGMAT Prep Guides - RC
7. MGMAT Prep Guides – SC
8. Ace the GMAT (my personal decision based on Amazon reviews).

I’m planning to stick to your study plan for novices. However, I was wondering, why there is no reference to neither OG12 nor OG Verbal nor OG Grammar in the novices guide. When is the best time to study from these books? Do you recommend to study before Kaplan Premiere or after?

In addition, What do you think about Ace the GMAT? Do you think is a good GMAT prep Book?.

Thank you so much for your help.

I feel I am in a similar situation. There are so many prep courses. Which one is good? I am getting some help from parents to pay for a prep course, but which one is the best one? Kaplan? Knewton? Manhattan GMAT? Or should I save the money and do self study using books?

Can someone please tell me which is the best prep course?

Thanks

Hi all,

I am currently an international 4th year Ph.D. Student in Biochemistry at a U.S. Tier1 Research University.
Male, 26years of age and planning to apply to the top B-schools for general managment in the fall of 2011. Except for 2 internships with major pharmaceuticals before and during graduate school, I have no other work experience. GPA undergrad and grad was 3.8 each. I took the GRE in 2005 with a horrible 390 verbal score and a good 780 quant score, with a 5.0 AWA. Boy those were the days when they were still testing synonyms and antonyms and I found myself sitting in front of a screen where i knew 1 out 12 words. Anyhow, since 05 my English has most definitely improved and I am shooting for a 700+gmat score. I took the free Platinum GMAT online test yesterday (skipping the AWA) and score a 650-660, I forgot the Q/V breakdown. From a preliminary analysis, I would say my week points a SC and Data Sufficiency problems. I wouldn't call complex combination or permutation problems my forte either. We'll see I am shooting for taking the GMAT in March and I suppose that gives me plenty time....
Out of curiosity, I have been doing some reading in the forum, but haven't found anyone comment on the Platinum GMAT score in relation the 'real' score. Anyone an idea?

Hello everybody,

I'm actually still a junior at San Diego State University (SDSU) studying accounting. However, there is a relatively new accounting program at SDSU that allows you to earn a master's along with your bachelor's degree (after an extra year of school). Taking the GMAT is one of the requirements to apply to this program. My goal is to score at least 700, and I'm glad I've found this place. I am looking forward to learn here and to help others as well.

My name is Pedro. I just moved to Chicago 6 months ago. I am currently in Saint Xavier University doing my MS in Finance. The school sucks and it is far from my apartment. I want to transfer to DePaul and start again. I need a 570...Just got a 480 on the Knewton diagnostic test.

I want to take the Gmat in 55 days...I have nothing to do buy study for this test, so I hope I can improve my score to get to 570...

Have a good one everyone

Welcome Everyone.

Great having you here and good luck in 2010.
If you have any doubts - don't! I have seen everything over the years of GMAT Club, so just dig in and keep your eyes on the goal. Stop by to see what others are doing and constantly tweak your plan and ask yourself how you are doing and if you are doing everything you need/can to get to your goal.

Thank you also to everyone who made GMAT Club better in 2009 - we're looking forward to an even more productive 2010!
