Hey all,

I am very excited to see this club . I am from Navi Mumbai and wish TO SCORE 700+ after seeing such a great resource .
My quants is not that great but i can work harder on it .

I have 5 years + workex in banking field and teh weekdays goes in office only . my office and home distance is very far because of which
I dont get even an hour in a day for studies hence it has become difficult to set a fixed time for studies.

could you please suggest any tutor or any coaching institutes where i can learn more and clear my doubts (specially quants).

I really want to prepare for this exam and want to sharpen my potential.

Looking for support . :please

Hi gmatway,

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 take 2 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. 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 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 take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Your above both statements are contradictory somehow, one time you are saying that you don't have even an hour to study and at second you are looking for coaching classes? If you don't have a flexible time to study then you better go to online GMAT Course as it is more convenient and flexible. Here are some of top rated GMAT Courses at GMAT Club.

Best Courses (Budget)

1. e-GMAT
2. Empower GMAT
3. Math Revolution (Only Math)

Hi gmatway,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. You should dedicate around 4 months to achieve your target score. I would encourage you to start by taking a GMATPREP Mock. You can then know your weaknesses and can work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking an online GMATPREP course. Although there are a lot of coaching classes in Mumbai, I would not recommend you to join a coaching class as given your work schedule, will be very difficult to manage. You need to work on solidifying your base and clearing your concepts. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

You can also use MGMAT guides for your preparation. MGMAT guides are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ve ... ml?fl=menu

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi ,

As I'm also in a mission to improve my quant as well as my verbal score. And I work 6 days a week that too in an unicorn start up in India. Work pressure eats me up.

As a non-engineer too , I could highly advise , classroom coaching in the country is way below average to pull up your quant scores or verbal scores.

I would highly suggest you to purchase Manhattan Foundation Quant Book and purchase all the manhattan quant guides. Because non-enginners can be bit rusy at maths , so prior to purchasing any online prep material or joining any class, get your-self equipped with the basics .

Once you are well equipped with the basics then you may take up any online prep material such as Target Test Prep for Quant / Empower or E-gmat . I personally have purchased magoosh and will be purchasing the gmat club tests .

Try to look for the post made by bb , how to score better quants , he has also provided a road map for novice / advance test takers.
This is a terrific post made by bb : https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-impro ... 42810.html

For me , I realized to improve any score the consistency has to be a key not taking up any tuitions or coachings.


I'm sure there any many experts in the forum that could advise you better things. At the end of the day, everything boils down to our time management and dedication .

Hi gmatway,

Since you have a hectic schedule, signing up for one of the online courses would be good for you as against classroom coaching. It will give you the flexibility to study at your own pace. You may also find this article on Balancing GMAT studies with Work to be useful.

How should you choose a prep course?

While reviewing the courses you must look at the following factors:
1. Will the course work for you? Look at the free trial resources of various courses out there and evaluate their teaching methodologies. Choose the one which suits your needs.
2. Is the course proven to deliver success to students like you? – Look at the reviews of courses out there and see what others have to say and then decide.
 

EXPERIENCE THE e-GMAT FREE TRIAL

I’m sharing some direct links of free trial material with you which can help you evaluate our course better. More of them (25 video lessons and 380+ practice questions) are available on your free trial dashboard. 

Check out our Video concept files.

Hi gmatway,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. I agree that the best first step is to familiarize yourself with the GMAT and then take an official GMAT practice exam. By taking that practice exam, you will get a better sense of your starting point as well as the finish line.

Once you complete the test, please report back here, and I can provide some further advice. In the meantime, you may find it helpful to read this article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.
