Hi everyone,

This is my first time joining any type of forum so forgive me for feeling like a lost pup. I plan to go to business school in Fall 2018. So, I'm aiming on taking the GMAT during the first week of November 2017. This leaves me with roughly 3 months to prepare and I would like to become a baby faced assassin and score 700+ on test day. This requires a lot of preparation and I would love some guidance on the right steps to take.

I'll be taking an 6 week in-person GMAT prep course that begins Sep. 16 - Oct. 28 (No class on Oct. 14). It's more math focused but will touch on everything. The course will provide The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 2017 Edition and a course workbook for activities. By that time I want to be well on my way in my study program but what are some good study materials that I can use from now, excluding what the course will provide, to start studying on my own?

Any study materials, structured plans and other advice is absolutely welcomed.

Thank you in advance and all the best to you guys!

Hi PJBourne,

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 come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi PJBourne,

In addition to the great advice already offered, I would recommend downloading the GMAT Club math ebook. If you having trouble with any particular question topic in the quant section, I believe this book will help you. You'll be able to download it by doing a quick search. All the best!
