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!!

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?

Considering your target score to be 700 or above, We will first recommend you to appear for a free diagnostic test on https://www.mathrevolution.com. Also, check our free trial pack and free-video lesson.

Raising score of 200 points needs consistency and dedication. Also, until you can track your performance, you won’t get enough confidence to beat the GMAT. And for this, you will need diagnostic tests.
