First off, I want to get this off my chest. Everyone here is so awesome!

Okay, now that I've got that out of the way, I've been posting here for a while but never really introduced myself. My name is TwoThrones (that's what it means in Arabic anyway) and I'm from Michigan. I'm currently in Marketing, and knew I would be taking the GMAT in subsequent years. However, now that my hours have slowed down at work, now is the time for me to step up to the plate and swing a home run!

I will be taking the GMAT in April 2011 in order to do a Masters (to be honest, I'm not sure yet, maybe in Accounting or Finance) and then later on when I have more work experience get an MBA. I'm not looking to get into a top 10 Finance program, but that will change for my MBA. I thought that I might as well study hard while I have time and I'm still pretty fresh out of school to do amazing on the GMAT.

I'm not sure this will help, but I'm currently enrolled in an intensive Arabic course (not taking it because of the GMAT, but diverse languages make me a diverse candidate, currently can speak 5). We are currently focusing on grammar, and that definitely helps me freshen up on rules of grammar in the English language for SC.

Once again, you guys are awesome, and now that I'm officially studying, I would love to help everyone in the forum out but to be honest, it seems like you guys will be helping me out instead :). Thanks for reading.

Welcome, TwoThrones. What I wonder is what actually is your real name which translates to "twothrones" in Arabic :-D . It's good that you're quite active on the community. I have generally seen that people who usually participate a lot here on the community end up with good scores(Whiplash is the recent example :) ),so you might end up with a great one too. Keep up the spirit!

My name is Arshan. In arabic, arsh means throne and when you add an "aan" or an "ain" to the end, it becomes two.

I thank you very much for the great boost in confidence. Now I know I can't go wrong!

Hello!

Over the winter break I finally decided to commit myself to the GMAT. I'm an engineer (electrical engineering background) in a research and development role at a medical device company. Looking toward entrepreneurial / VC with a medical technology focus.

I just received Kaplan premiere in the mail and after two weeks plan to take my first diagnostic CAT. From there, hopefully complete the Kaplan book and begin with Manhattan (not yet ordered). This forum looks like it'll be a great help -- particularly interested in the free tests!

Hi Rohan,

Your words of encouragement are truly appreciated. You may well be right; I could be building up the exam to be something more than it really is. Many software developers think they are good with math, and I am no exception. Nonetheless, the process of preparation is humbling.

That said - I have invested too much time to change course now. I’ve got my mind set on Duke, and nothing else will do. I’m applying for round six, so I have some time (but not too much). I will keep plugging away at it as long as I can. If I end up not doing well, it won't be for a lack of effort.

Again, thank you for the kind words ... I hope to be able to repay the favor at some point – Merry Christmas!

Greg



Ah, don't worry about that Greg, i sincerely hope you do well..
Don't worry about what you will end up with..as i said earlier, be optimistic and positive!
It's good that you have a definitive aim --Duke and that should really help you in streamlining your efforts.
Somebody said " Create your future from your future. Not from your past."


Many Best Wishes!!

Don't mean to threadjack -- welcome jason, though I'm also new. I wanted to ask Pkit about study plans:

Currently, I plan to take two weeks to take some practice problems and become more comfortable with the test format. Afterward, I'll take my first diagnostic test and only then will I develop a concrete study plan (targetted focus on weaknesses). Is that what most people do, or would you recommend that I come up with a plan right away? Should I skip the first two weeks and go right ahead on the diagnostic test?

Regards..
