Hi,
I am PhD candidate in science and plan to take GMAT in August this year. I am looking for a partner to prepare for GMAT together to create synergy and to make the study process more fun.

If you also want to prepare for the test and achieve a high score, AND you live in Denver, CO area (or close to Denver) , please contact me as soon as possible by sending an email to gmat_partner@yahoo.com

Thanks
Lincoln

Sure, I can help you out in verbal, you help me out in Math.

Good luck, I don't think it really means too much for you since Computer Science doesn't look at GMAT.

Bogdan can also help

Hi,
I am most interested in looking for a test partner who can meet
face-to-face for a few hours each week to discuss questions regularly. Certainly doing this online is useful, but not nearly as good as doing it face-to-face. Also, you cannot discuss many questions online, it is TOO slow and too inefficient.

For my CS major, yeah, my advisor once said "you are getting a PhD, f--- the MBA". I didn't respond. But said to myself "you don't f--- MBA from Harvard, do you?".

So, if you live in Denver, Colorado, let's collaborate to get 750 ! I am sure it will be a win-win investment for both of us!

Lincoln,

There are only so many difficult GMAT questions. Most of them are not that difficult. If you took the SAT and GRE, the math experience is along those lines.

RC(s) you can't really prepare for, to me, it's easy for a native speaker, but you'll just have to read to figure it out, not that dificult.

Curly,

I have no problem with Math at all. (I scored 800 on GRE Math seven years ago, and have taken many graduate level math classes. IтАЩd wish they test calculus, linear algebra, and abstract algebra in GMAT

I am also good at RC, and CR. Just not good at sentence correction which has a lot to do with grammar and idiomsтАж

If you don't mind, aren't you supposed to take GRE for science program? or did they give you a choice and you decided you can screw the bus. applicants easier than science?

BB,
I created that email account a few days ago when I decided to take GMAT. It is a good name, except I haven't got any email yet. It seems substance is more important a pure impressive name

I took GRE seven years ago to enter my current graduate school. Now, that I am graduating with a PhD in Computer Science, I am planning ahead for my next (and the final) educational move. I have contacted Stanford GSB, they told me that they must reqire a GMAT score, no matter what degree you have. I guess the same must be true for Harvard.

I strongly believe in "two brains are better than one" philosophy. Here, American students seem to be very independent and don't value collaboration a lot. In my experience, it has been truely helpful to learn from each other in order to conquer tough exams like GMAT.

Hi,
I have one \$100,000 and other lesser ones lined up for me. I am preparing for MBA test now NOT because I don't have a job or lack of Visa status. I just think that in the long run, a prestigious MBA would help me, and it has been a dream for me to go to Harvard. I want to achieve it if there is a chance so that I don't regret later in my life.

So, is it PHD or MBA? or you are shooting for both?

BB,
I am currently enrolled in a PhD program and will earn this degree
by next December.

Just plan ahead for a possible MBA a few years from now. I want to get the test done now because it is the best timing for me: I am still at school and know how to take exams.

So, yes, I am getting a PhD soon, and shooting for an MBA a few years down the road.
