Hi kartik22,

While you should certainly plan to take a certain number of practice CATs during your studies, it's important to remember that taking lots of CATs will NOT make you a better Test Taker. A CAT is really a 'measuring device' - when used correctly, it will give you a realistic score and help define your strengths and weaknesses, but it will NOT help you to fix any of those weaknesses. To raise your scores, you have to put in the necessary practice and repetitions. The CAT will show you whether your studies are helping you to improve or not. As such, you really shouldn't take more than 1 FULL CAT per week.

1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?

Hi kartik22,

To start, a 610 is a strong initial CAT Score (the average Score on the Official GMAT hovers around 540-550 most years). That having been said, raising a 610 to a 750+ will likely take at least another 2-3 months of consistent, guided study - and beyond having to make significant improvements to how you handle the Verbal section, you'll also have to make some adjustments to how you handle the Quant section. The 750+ score is approximately the 99th percentile, meaning that 99% of Test Takers never score that high (regardless of how long they study or the number of times they take the GMAT). Thankfully, NO Business School requires a score that high, so you have to keep in mind that the score that you "want" and the score that you "need" are likely not the same thing. That all having been said, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train to score at a higher level.

1) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

Hi kartik22,

You have time to 'play around' with your studies a bit, if you choose. If you'd like to be 'efficient' with your time though, then you would likely find it beneficial to invest in a GMAT Course of some type (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led), so that you can properly train in all of the necessary Tactics (instead of having to try to randomly learn them all on your own). When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different options. Most GMAT Companies offer some type of free materials (practice problems, Trial Accounts, videos, etc.) that you can use to 'test out' a product before you buy it. We have a variety of those resources at our website (www.empowergmat.com). I suggest that you take advantage of all of them then choose the one that best matches your personality, timeline and budget.

If you have any additional questions, then you can feel free to contact me directly.
