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

Welcome to the GMAT Club!
Yes, you are probably pretty rusty by this time. Take a look at this study plan: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html?highlight=ml301 and also pick up MGMAT Math Foundations - will be a good way to ease into it.

For verbal there are a few books including our own GMAT Club Grammar Book

Thanks bb. Really appreciate your guidance. I tried to do a test to see where I stand, and scored horrible- 400, q-30;v-14.
My target is 600. Do you think it is possible in 4 weeks to reach that. I am currently on leave so do have the more time than a working person but do house have duties being a mother.
The study plan that you suggested is 3-4 moths. Does that mean I should be covering a month stuff in a week. Is it possible?
Thanx

Hello all,

I ran across these forums searching for advice on how to conquer the GMAT. I have to say that I find this site very very valuable.

A little bit about me, I spent 4 years as an enlisted soldier in the Army where I was a non-commissioned officer. I am currently a senior in a top 5 undergraduate business program. I will be starting as an investment banking analyst next summer.

I am looking for advice on how my unique background might appeal to MBA programs, so any insight would be greatly appreciated. Also, I will be taking the GMAT January and possibly a second time in May. I am looking to attend business school after my two years in banking. Thanks!

Hi,

My name is Felipe and I'm from Brazil. I'm planning to take the GMAT in a year so i think i will buy the manhattan set of 8 books, do you think it's a good strategy?

I also have to take TOEFL and i'm worried about my english knowledge more than the question strategies, do you think that the GMAT Ultimate Grammar book would be the best book to improve my grammar or you recommend any other?

Thanks for the help!

Hi Felipe, welcome to gmat club!
Well, MGMAT set of books are great but there are some close competitions too. You can check this thread to make a final decision. best-gmat-books-77703.html

On TOEFL, have you checked our TOEFL forum. Very detailed info is there, you can find the answers of your queries there. toefl-ielts-pte-143/

I have heard good about the ultimate grammer book but havn't used that myself, so can't comment.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

Hello All,

I have decided to go back to school after working for many years. I have my BSc from Trent University in Canada. I am currently (and have been for the last 9 years) living in Switzerland. I would like to jump directly into the Masters program at the University here but I need to have a good score on the GMAT first.

I found this site while reading book reviews on Amazon. Your founder sent me here. :-) I have now read the Getting started and the book reviews and I think I am headed in the right direction. I had hoped to write the exam before the new year but I'm not sure if I have set a too ambitious goal for myself.
