Hi everybody,

Already discovered this page several months ago, but did not yet start with my prep. I am an Int. Business student from Germany (however with American roots), looking out for some top notch business schools throughout Europe (somehow uncommon in this forum) to do my Masters degree. From now on I will have full 2 months of time for preperation, before my semester starts and I hope this is sufficient to get 700+. Concerning the books, I think I have the full package (KAPLAN - GMAT Premier, GMAC - GMAT Review 12th edition, Powerscore - GMAT verbal bible, KAPLAN - GMAT math workbook).
I will start with an online test and take the diagnostic tests from the GMAC book (or KAPLAN???). From there I will follow your suggested strategies and hope to finally reach my goal. Thank you for all the effort you put in this page and I will definetely be present over the next 2 months to exchange ideas.

Would be great if you would commend on on my time schedule of two months and if I should be fine with my prep-literature.

Thank you

Overall sounds good - you may not have enough time to go through all of the materials you have amassed, but I would not worry about that - half of what you have is enough for a 700 score if you invest time into it and not just flip pages for the sake of progress. I assume you have seen this post: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html but just in case putting it here.

2 months can be tough to get more than 100 points of improvement - keep that in mind when you take a diagnostic test.

Hey,

Took the Diagnostic test of OG12 with a, let`s say, a differentiated outcome. I want to to save the CAT test for some time, since they are so valuable and I actually don`t want to waste them.

PS: Average
DS: Below Average
RC: Average
CR: Average
SC: Above Average

I think it was a good start to get an idea about the type of questions and how the concepts work. Now I will go into detail in the Quant section for the next month, in order to boost my Quant level to "Excellent". :wink: I keep an Error Log to track my errors.

Shall I use Premier Kaplan or OG 12, in order to refresh and review my maths skills?? After the Quant test I felt quite disappointed, but I am pretty confident to be able to do much better after reviewing the different consepts. I hope my 700+ in 2 months is still reachable, even with this "average" assessments above.

Would be great to get some feedback.
Thank you guys for everything

Quick question- are you only looking at LSE and SSE? I wasnt aware that SSE had an MBA program (since its not that common in Sweden yet) and LSE doesnt either. Would you need the GMAT for those or would the GRE be a better fit?

I am not looking for a MBA program, but graduate programs, since I am about to finish my undergraduate program this year. They require the GMAT, rather than the GRE.

Hi everyone,

I have found this website when I searched for the GMAT info online. My opinion: probably the best site out there with enormous amount of useful info.
I'm an international from Belarus (yes, it's a real country :-D ) with Bachelor's in Mathematics, and Master's in Mechanical Engineering (both while in the US). Currently working in the steel industry as a project engineer. Just a year ago I thought I had enough of school experience in my life. However, my perception has changed and I would like to get my MBA from one of the top 20 US business schools.
Took GMATprep test, made 660 (glad it is measured in increments of 10, otherwise would get 666 :-D :evil: ). Hope to see 700+ after the real test.
As to the GMAT preparation, a week ago I got all the books (OG 12, OG Verbal, OG Quantitative, 4 MGMAT Math guides, 2 MGMAT Verbal guides plus CR Bible) and began the "GMAT journey". I'm enjoying it so far....
Anyways, I'm glad to have found this site, and looking forward to be a part of GMAT Club...
Regards,
Alex

Hi everyone,
i also found this website through my intensive search for MBA and GMAT Information. After a while i got to GMATClub (don´t know how, just opened every link i thought was useful) and saved it.

As i´m new here, i want to introduce myself. I´m a non native English speaker, but from Germany. There i have graduated from a Private University majoring Business and Economics in 2007. Since then i work for a small consultant company in Munich.

I started my GMAT prep. roughly a month ago with the math section. I was above average in math, but haven´t done it for years now. So i need to learn all the basics again. When i first used the gmat prep software, i was surprised how little i know about triangles, angles and so on.

That´s how i started/will continue:

Book:
OG 12th Edtion
The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal
The Official Guide for GMAT Math
Kaplan Advanced
Kaplan 800
8 x MGMAT-Book (bought all coz i´m weak in verbal and every prep info in math might only improve my score)
1,012 GMAT Practice Questions

--> I know, it is really intense, but first of all, i have enought time to prepare (6-8 months) and second, i don´t feel confident without. ;-)

My target score is 700+ (actually i´m more than happy with 700) and i will aim for one of the Top10 Business School worldwide (mostly USA, but also LBS).

I have read a lot of post from this forum, which already helped me to improve my procedure (i. e. strategies, error file, timetable, etc.). Thank you for all the effort you put into it and i will share my little experience as soon as i have improved my skills.

Thank you,
Micha

Hi everyone, glad to be a part of this forum.... there's so many resources here :-D i found it through google while i was researching my options for getting into an mba school. I'm still exploring my options so I'm not entirely sure if getting an mba is right for me because I'm unsure as to what my career goals will be but I am interested in pursuing business as a career. I haven't started with any gmat prep yet but so far some good materials to have are : OG 12, and the manhattan review set based on what I've read by browsing through here.

Hope to see you guys around! I'll be lurking around the forums if I need some help, so I would appreciate it if you guys give me some help if I need it. Thanks a lot.

Hi guys, I'm Sidharth and I'm new to this forum. This looks like a really great place to share information about the GMAT. I've been browsing around for a while now but was kinda hesitant to start posting anything because the knowledge that most of the guys have around here is pretty intimidating :shock: . However I feel its time I got started get myself involved in some discussions here.
I'm looking to take my GMAT somewhere around the June timeframe, do I have sufficient time to prepare really well? I'm fairly decent in quants and my verbal is pretty good.
Hope to contribute a lot to this forum and learn a lot in return.
Sid

Hi everyone,

I am a Romanian living and working in Japan. I have a BA from The University in Bucharest and I initially arrived in Japan with a scholarship during my uni years. I decided to stay after graduation (2006) and since then been working as a Sales and Marketing Recruitment Consultant at a big firm here in Tokyo.

I have learned a lot working here and I love living in Tokyo BUT it is time for a new challenge. I do want to stay in Asia though and my aim is INSEAD, Singapore campus.

I have discovered this forum pretty randomly and it proved to be the best thing that happend to me for my GMAT/application process. There are some fantastic people here posting some immensly valuable advice and information. Thank you all for your great efforts.

This is what I have done so far:

- built my study plan (i do have quite a bit of time - I am looking at submitting my application for September 2011 intake - r1 is September 2010)
- i took some time chosing the books I wanted to use - i highly recommend you read the posts here about this - there are so many options out there and i think it is worth the effort to put some research into it and select a few valuable books as opposed to buying evertyhing available out there
- i dowloaded the GMAT app for my i-phone so I get to practice on my way to work or when I am waiting for someone who is running late etc etc - i haven't had the chance to look into all its functions properly but this tool seems to be extremely valuable and here is a big big big thanks to its creators
- i have started to diversify my reading: history, geography, maths, science, politics etc etc - being a non-native English speaker it does help a lot to at least get used to texts from different contexts; i also try to read the news on my computer as I want to get used to non-paper reading as well
- my biggest challenge at this point is Quant: i used to love it in college but I only studied maths in my native language Romanian; it takes time to understand the language first and then the actual math problem

Anyhow, thanks y'all for a fantastic effort to put this forum together!

Good luck!

Hello Everyone,

I am Manish. I gave GMAT 2 weeks back and got 720 (GMAC must give at least 15 mins. break at least to smokers :-D ).

I found this site through Google and I wish I would have found it before I gave my GMAT.
I hope other aspiring students find this site in time as it's a great resource.

Regards,
Manish

I just discovered this site recently. I intend to take the GMAT this coming December, as I am busy with law school right now and I will be taking the bar exam this summer. I don't plan go to business school until 2012. I'm glad I discovered this site, as I am slowly collecting material that I will use to study.
