Hi nishantbhatt,

From your post, It sounds like you're just beginning your studies. Is that true? Have you done any studying so far?

Since you're interested in taking that initial practice CAT Test in a realistic fashion, you have to think in terms of what you'll be facing on Test Day. Your test will be at a specific time and you WON'T be taking the Test at your home (so you should look for an external location - such as a library or office space - that you can travel to to take your CATs/mocks). In addition, a FULL Test takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so you have to make sure that you've set aside enough time to take each CAT in one sitting.

Once you complete that first CAT, you should report back and we can discuss the results and come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

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

Sorry for the misunderstanding but what i meant to say was - where can i get my mock test from, what's the best website for it?

However, i am surprised with the detailed answer given to me, thank you!

1) Im looking for a score above 700
2) I plan to take the exam in April
3) I will apply to bschools only after I achieve my desired score

Hi nishantbhatt,

You can take 2 practice CATs/mocks 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. Again, 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 (or you can feel free to contact me directly) and we can come up with a study plan.

Hi nishantbhatt,

Since you are just starting out with your prep, first familiarize yourself with the GMAT and then take an official GMAT practice exam.

Once you complete your exam, if you’d like some further advice regarding your study plan, feel free to reach back out.

how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

Good luck!

Hi nishantbhatt,

I don't think that anyone here should be choosing YOUR career path for you; that's a big decision that you have to define for yourself. The process of applying to (and ultimately attending) Business School will require a big investment of time, money and energy on your part, so you really should make sure that the Programs that you apply to match your career goals/needs. There are a variety of factors that go into selecting the Schools that you'll apply to. Instead of just applying to Programs in which you might have a good chance to 'get in', here are some other things to think about:

1) Is there a particular company that you want to work for or industry that you want to work in? Certain degrees are more appropriate than others if you have a specific career goal.
2) What do you want your MBA to do for you?
3) Do you want to go to School full-time or part-time?
4) Are you willing to relocate? Are you comfortable with working through a program that is primarily online?
5) Are you going to be applying for scholarships?
Etc.

It's okay if you don't have answers to any of these questions just yet, but you really should try to define all of the important variables in terms of your goals, so that you can tailor your entire approach to getting into the best School that matches what you're looking for.
