Hi all,

I just started my prep to apply for MBA school. I graduated with my undergrad a few years ago, so I've been out of the studying mindset for a while. I do much better from listening to lectures then just reading a book. Does anyone have a suggestion of a good audible tool besides the $1000 live courses? I can't afford that. So I'm looking for maybe CDRoms, Podcasts, etc.

Thank you.

Check out magoosh, under 200 dollars and you can usually find coupon codes for cheaper. Offers videos of each concept covered and a huge question bank with video explanations of each answer

Yes, Magoosh is a good source. I also know some youtube channels which do a lot of MBA prep. you should be able to look up the forum. I remember when I was starting the prep, lot of people suggested some good youtube links. ( I am more of a book person though). let me see if I can dig up the links.

Hi klowery,

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) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

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

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I truly am really just getting started. My goal is to start MBA program next January, just depends on finances, but at least by the end of 2019 I will be enrolled. So I have time. I'm thinking of taking the GMAT around September-November.
I'll try to find some time this weekend into taking the CAT.
