Hey guys,

So I took the gmat once and scored a 500 with barely any studying... and then when i retook it after studying, I got a 400 and I was devastated and no longer wanted to pursue anything in regards to MBA. Sadly, due to personal circumstances, I am being urged to take the GMAT again, and I don't know if I can do well because I have no motivation. I am currently in my last semester of my BBA degree, so I wanted to focus on this first, but I want to try to re-do the GMAT in July or something, so basically I have 7 months, but this semester is really tough for me so i want to focus on school first and get in a little bit of studying for gmat along the way. I'm done school in April and I can focus a bit more on the GMAT then, so if you guys have any recommendations on how i should study, please let me know... I need all the help I can get, and I really can't afford to pay for expensive tutoring programs and what not.. I'm just in a difficult financial and emotional situation right now, so I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thank you all!!

Hey, what's your back ground? I mean what are you familiar with Quantitative or Verbal?

College life is still easier to pursue GMAT. You will not be able to focus that much once you are in job.
I suggest you follow error log and identify what are your weak areas first.
Then look for strengthening specific portions.
What is the score you are aiming for?

Best Courses (Budget)

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

You can start with Quant or Verbal which suits you. If you have started with Quant then Start with the Arithmetic but if started with verbal then start first with Sentence correction. One month for learning Quant concepts and one month for practicing question and same practice for Verbal. During you Practicing question don't forget to make an error log to track your weak areas after practice. Once you know your weak areas revise your Concepts related to those areas and do some more Practice. 6-8 CATs are enough for practice the real tests. Make your Stamina for sitting 3 hours in the test and don't study more than 2 hours in one sit and 4 hours per day

Top CATs for Practice

1. Official GMAC CATs
2. Manhattan CATs
3. Kaplan CATs
