I haven't booked my times yet. How far in advance do you need to book them? I'm in the same boat, want to do the GMAT before the switch. And I feel we have a similar study schedule. I hope to finish all my quant in the next two week, before moving on to SC.

What made you pull the trigger on the E-Gmat?

I was lately struggling with SC havoc. I went through MGMAT guides - self study - was of not help practically - revised for at least 3 times - still landed nowhere - realized my approach was wrong. researched forum and other sources - believed I needed a class more grounded and basic like Gmat pill or E-gmat - both had competent reviews - but being a non native - chose E-gmat - especially when cost was a constraint. Lost enough in the MGMAT online classes - realized it could not add much value to me - thus a more nominal approach at appropriate cost is what I was looking for. What is your status Yerkut? How is your verbal situation? My quant revision is near completion - will start CAT's shortly and move on completely to Verbal now. What is your AWA status?

SDas,

Donot worry too much about AWA, listen to free AWA Videos on GMATPrepNow.com, and practise a couple of AWA, they are more than enough. If you really want MBA.com will rate your AWA essays using a electronic reader and give you a score will cost you 30\$ though.

Been struggling again with relocation and settling down (still), last 1 year has been terribly turbulent for me, it is not only tiresome but also devastating to my motivation and confidence. I am still trying best to keep up the pace.....
Abhi, thank you very much for your advices. Will browse through the details.

Currently, finished another Egmat diagnostic. Started with SC lessons from today. Scheduled for a MGMAT CAT tomorrow, hope for the best.

Hi prateek, prep is not too stable now, as i ws out of touch for a long time now. trying hard to cope up. pgdba is post grad diploma - its similar to mba but through distance learning. I see you already completed test, would you like to share some tips.....I read all books i understand everything.but when it comes to practical application, i am not too polished. can u also refer some good one on one tuition options here, as i think i need more deadlines to cover up else self study with work schedule is not working out for me too good....

Back after ages.Finally,after dedicating last 3 weeks of dedicated study hours I am positively back in the RACE! This time I started with SC - my weakness. About completing EGmat level 3. As a non native speaker, I am convinced with their approach. I did not practice much of OG, however the approach to the concepts are outstanding. From a sentence which blacked me out initially, i can now understand the role of each word (mostly) in the sentence. Which means a little more revision and practice I can start applying these Finite Rules to solve SC.

BTW, additionally I realized that i am actually very patient in nature. Perusing the deal to crack GMAT for long time, could not do it so far, despite all situations that I faced and still facing, I try to keep cool with GMAT!

I will not give up.

Coming week's target - complete GC Grammar book, revise EGmat SC and start OG practice with Error Log. I have just completed basics - quiet well laid out. Diligently doing all exercises. well written BB. Thank your efforts.

SC could be such a bummer if only I knew I would have been careful with Wren n Martin in school......
