Morning!

I found this site while searching for gmat quant books and after some browsing realized how much more seriously I had to take the GMATs. I've since increased the number of books in my amazon order, set a serious 2 month study plan and subscribed to the GMAT question-a-day mailing list.

It seems that nearly everyone is shooting for the 700 club and that's a great goal but I'm personally shooting for 650-680. But may have to adjust that goal after I take my first practice exam to set my baseline score.

Cheers,
F

Hello everyone,

I actually posted one or two posts but I did not introduced myself. How rude!

So a bit about myself:

- French who has been living in Cambridge (UK) for the past 3 years now.
- BA in Business Management (my last year) at AIBS Cambridge
- Hope to get into one of the top 5 B-schools in France (HEC, ESCP, ESSEC, EDHEC...) Master Grande Ecole

My GMAT prep started about 2 months ago where I did some exercises but realised that I was rusty in maths so I stopped for like one and a half month to actually start about 3 weeks ago after acquiring the MGMAT set of books.

GMAT Test scheduled for the 23rd of December - I would like to get as much as possible :-D 650-700+

I found out about the forum about 2 months ago and I have been silently reading through posts and I must say, the forum is a pearl with really helpful and skilled people. I am looking forward to work with all of you.

I think this is pretty much it.

Please take care of me ;-)

Hi all..
Although I joined GmatClub couple of months back, I came to know about this thread today only :oops:
I am just 2 weeks away from my D-day. I am in final stage of preparation and I am planning to take few free available tests now, and then including MGmat tests. Any suggestions are welcome .
btw, Hussain along with few others I have your GMAT story bookmarked . I got 500 when I first took GMATPrep Test ( without any preparation ), and then I came across your story ... it inspired me a lot :thumbup: . Now I hope that I will do just as good as you did :)

Hi Pinali...I am sure you will improve by leaps and bounds... Just make sure that you focus well and log your mistakes so that you can revisit them.
Also, reading some grammatically correct books might help you immensely. Personally though, I feel that GMAT is just the first stop in the journey, not the destination itself.
Therefore, just following a set of steps and rehearsing them for a short period of time isnt really the best thing. Make reading and writing a habit, so that you are prepared for the challenges which pose themselves in days, months or even years ahead.

I am taking the GMAT tomorrow....been preparing for almost a month now...
To make myself comfortable with passages, essays and to be able to focus more, i have resorted to blogging. I do feel that along with reading newspapers, journals, magazines and novels, blogging is an awesome method of improving ones vocabulary, critical reasoning, concentration and patience.

I have written a few lines about my preparation on my blogpage. Link to it is
http://insomniac-anish.blogspot.com

Will update it tomorrow after my GMAT...

Wish me luck :)

Hi everyone,

I'm 24 years old and currently going for my undergrad at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I came across the site doing some GMAT searches in relevance to what is expected from the ultra elite schools and such.

I didn't realize how much work I was going to have to put into it, and even though I don't want to take the GMAT for at least a year or so, I figured even now with 18 credit hours if I can get in a hour or so a day, it's better to start preparing sooner before later.

My goal is to get a GMAT score that will get me into Wharton, HBS, Ross, since I know with my current GPA (3.13 ouch) a higher GMAT may help even that out a bit. It's been a dream of mine to get into HBS, but at really I want to put myself in the best school possible, and want to prepare accordingly.

Hey folks..
Was supposed to take the big "G" yesterday. But , as fate would have had it, turned out that the name i had registered with did not completely match the one on my passport.
I have raised an incident with Pearson Vue, but not too hopeful about it.
Lets see what happens.....hopefully i dont have to forefeit the entire amount.
I am not too worried about this impacting my performance though....just hope its not delayed too much
Hoping for the best

Cheers

Hi Everyone,

I came across this website while searching on the web and seems very helpful and encouraging.
I am actually on a very tight time-frame of the most 4 weeks, that means, have to sit for the GMAT around Nov 15,2010.

Can someone tell me if it is even achievable in a short time or what.....

If it is, what type of plan I should follow. And what is the process to catch on the verbal , I mean to revise the grammar, any book suggestions...

I have been out of the college like 15 years ago, so will have to revise the concepts first too.

Will appreciate all the guidance and help I can get.

Thanks
