Hi drgaurav,

Studying for two Tests at the same time is often a difficult task, so it would probably be best if you studied for the TOEFL first - and took that Exam - before you started studying for the GMAT. When do you think you might take the TOEFL?

Rich,
I would prefer to start off with GMAT. I have decided to give GMAT around mid July. So, I have divided my overall study plan into three parts ; Basic, Intermediate and Advanced as per guidance in GMATCLUB (c/o maslow theory and preparation triangle). Here's strategy for Basic preparation. Kindly give your invaluable suggestion for a thorough preparation. I have set aside 4-5 hours on weekdays and 6 hours on weekends.
1) would give my diagnostic test tonight and then do in-depth analysis of my result.
2) MGMAT Study Guides 1-9 along-with section-wise tests.
3) Practice Test 1 and compare it with Diagnostic Test.
4) Official Guide '17 (Main + Quant + Verbal)
5) Practice Test 2 and compare it with previous tests.
6) Princeton 1012
7) Practice Test 3 and compare it with previous tests.

I will be using gmat score calculator and gmat timer by walker in my practice tests. Also, I will keep an error log for each section.

Suggestions for improvement are most welcome.

With much gratitude and appreciation.

Hi drgaurav,

The reason why I recommended that you focus on the TOEFL first is because you will develop skills during those studies that you can then use when you prepare for the GMAT. If you want to work on the GMAT first, then that's fine - but it strikes me as a bit inefficient. That having been said, you should start by taking a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). 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 4 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 discuss your study plan.

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

Hi drgaurav,

You need to build the concepts/fundamentals before you jump in solving the problems. You can do so by choosing one of the following ways:
1. In person classes/private tutoring
2. Online classes
3. Self paced online preparatory course
4. Book heavy approach

Whatever you choose, make sure that you choose one. Because GMAT tests you on some concepts and fundamentals that you can learn from a course. Most of the preparatory companies including ours offer a free trial of our course. You can take the trial and see if the course suits your needs.

In addition to the preparatory material, buy the Official Guides(both the Official Guide and the Verbal Review), Question Pack 1 and the 4 official mock CATs. They should be an indispensable part of your preparation.

You need close to 3 months to prepare well for the GMAT.
1. Understand the concepts and fundamentals before jumping into problem solving
2. Solve full length CATs including AWA and IR. You can get two free GMAT Prep mock CATs and can purchase two more from mba.com
3. Make sure you solve the official questions from the Official Guide
