Hello,

I have recently graduated college and will be starting full time employment in the summer. I am intending on using the time between now and then to take the GMAT, and will be purchasing the full set of Manhattan GMAT prep books as well as the Official Guide. With that being said, I have been searching this site for a study plan using the materials I mentioned above that will help me achieve my goal of getting a 720+. I have seen many of them more prominent posts regarding study plans, but none of them seem that specific when it comes to frequency of taking practice tests, problems to work through ,etc. Magoosh has some more specific plans posted, but I am more interested in using the Manhattan material. Can anyone point me in the direction of more day-by-day study plans using the suggested materials? Also, any other general advice would be greatly appreciated.

Before dropping large coin, take all the free 5-day and 7-day free trials that you can. You need to get a taste of what you are getting into. Keep a spiral notebook for your notes. The trials come with great study schedules. Pick the one that best suits you. There are a lot of great tips, but these are scattered amongst the different prep vendors. Again, before dropping large coin, check out eBay. (Don't buy the 2018 OG, it just rearranges the info from the last few years.) I spent \$100 for the older OGs, MPrep and VPrep! Good luck...700+ or Bust!

I'm sure Manhattan also has study plans for their students. Try sending them an email.

Hi ls95,

Your particular 'needs' and study plan will depend a great deal on your current skills, strengths and weaknesses - and it might be that you end up needing more time to study (and more resources) than you initially plan for. That having been said, taking FULL-LENGTH CATs (with the Essay and IR sections) under realistic conditions IS an essential part of the GMAT training process, so you should be taking one at least every few weeks (and as you get closer to Test Day, you should be taking a CAT every week or so).

All of that having been said, 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 download 2 for free from 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 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 talk through how best to proceed.

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

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