Hi,

You should start by giving a free mock from mba.com so that you can analysis where you stand right now. You can attempt this mock after brushing up some fundamentals of quant and verbal, or you can try that test right now. mba.com is the official website of GMAC, which conducts GMAT. There you will get 2 free and 4 paid official GMAT prep tests that you need to use very wisely by distributing their attempts evenly in between your preparations. This website will also provide you 90 free official questions and 450 approx. paid official questions.

Certainly, MGMAT guides and OGs will not be sufficient to score 700+. You will be needing more practice questions, and you can get them on GMAT club. This all depends how good are you right now.

What all resources one needs to get 700+ varies greatly from person to person. I have known people to just look at OG for 2 days and score 750; I have known people to struggle with 5 different complete curriculums and still not get near 600. It is not just about what you have (though admittedly, that's important too), but also how you use what you have.

We have seen that most people need at least one complete set of curriculum and official material (OG, Prep tests). Often they supplement based on specific need - e.g. video lessons, extra practice tests, practice questions etc. You will be able to figure out this requirement of yours after some days of serious studying. All in all, get started and keep an open mind about what material you may need later.

Meanwhile, here are some of our free resources for you to take a look: https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat/free-resources/

Hi leonkyawtunlwin,

To start, choosing to study for the GMAT now - far in advance of when you'll actually "need" your GMAT Score - is a smart choice. A Score Goal of 700+ is one that almost 90% of Test Takers will never achieve on the Official GMAT (regardless of how long they study or the number of times that they take the Exam). As such, no combination of GMAT study resources can 'guarantee' you what you are looking for. That having been said, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train for it - and you can certain start off your studies with the materials that you've listed. However, you will likely need more than just a series of books to maximize your performance.

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
3) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi leonkyawtunlwin,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Honestly, it’s difficult to say whether your current prep materials/study plan will be enough for you to hit your 700+ score goal. Thus, before getting started with your prep, spend some time here on GMAT Club researching the best GMAT courses and reviewing some GMAT success stories to see what has worked well for other test-takers. Also, as many people have mentioned, before you get started with your prep, it would be helpful to take a full-length MBA.com practice exam to see how far you are from your goal score.

Once you get started with your studying, feel free to reach back out if you’d like further advice.

Good luck!
