Hello peeps. I'm new to GMAT club. I made an account here sometime back but I was just exploring GMAT and wasn't serious about taking the exam back then. Now that I am, I have heard from people that GMAT club is very useful and they regret that they found it quite late. I'm just beginning to start my GMAT prep and I want to utilise all the resources to the maximum.
Please guys help me how to go about using this website. What posts are useful and is there any archive or something where I can find some must know tips/material.

Thanks in advance! :)

Welcome my friend!

Posting all the helpful threads would take me a lot of time and it would only create a graveyard of links.

However, there are two options which I would recommend:

Search a certain forum/sub forum for post with a lot of kudos.
Kudos generally signal that someone found a post helpful, thus if you find topics with lots of kudos there is a high likelyhood that these post created significant value for its readers.

Furthermore, there are often "pinned" topics which have been created by admins or mods. Those are often very helpful nuggets of wisdom and due to their pinned nature most of them are easy to find.

Last but not least you can always ask on the chat. If you cannot find a certain topic feel free to ask whether someone on the chat might know something in that regad.
You will often finds veteran users or mods which are happy to help and might be able to help you find what you seek.

All the best for your prep,
Chris

Hi Prateek!

Welcome to the GMAT Club!!

I wish i would have asked this question myself, before i started my journey, nonetheless, through trial & error i found the right direction!! The forum is a gigantic database & understandably its overwhelming for some one who is just starting off.

Below are the links which i found useful, in my journey so far, i always go back to them each time i feel lost.

1. https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-study-plan-217827.html - To start off with read this post by the founder of GMAT Club bb . It is very important you start on the right foot, hence, read it patiently. Even though its says "Study Plan 2016", the information provided is still relevant & very useful.

2. https://gmatclub.com/forum/abhimahna-s-secret-no-1-gmatclub-follow-functionality-257054.html#p1993468 - How to effectively utilize GMAT clubs "Follow" functionality. Don't forget to follow abhimahna himself, his posts are very useful not only for the GMAT but also for other BSchool app related stuff.

3. https://gmatclub.com/forum/sentence-correction-megathread-2018-edition-204883.html - Everything you need to know about SC for GMAT is here. Dont forget to follow souvik101990 an all round GMAT club legend.

4. https://gmatclub.com/forum/critical-reasoning-megathread-145178.html - Everything you need to know about CR for GMAT is here.

5. https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-rc-megathread-2018-edition-264834.html - Everything you need to know about RC for GMAT is here.

6. https://gmatclub.com/forum/new-to-the-verbal-forum-read-this-first-219866.html - Great post by Souvik, very useful tips for Verbal Prep.

7. https://gmatclub.com/forum/mgmat-study-hall-thursdays-with-ron-verbal-videos-209197.html - Compilation of "Thursdays with Ron videos" from Manhattan GMAT's Study Hall session with the absolute super saiyan RonPurewal who scored a perfect score of 800 multiple times on the GMAT. His Quant videos are equally useful & the link can be found within this link. Dont forget to thank carcass for creating this awesome compilation.

8. https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gmat-quantitative-megathread-244512.html - All that you will ever need for Quant, from theory to practice questions it is all here.

9. https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmac-official-guides-the-master-directory-links-240610.html - All OG questions from the 10th edition to the 2019 edition are compiled here. Thanks to carcass again.

10. Last but not the least, participate on the forums, it will help you immensely in your preparation.

a) Post your queries - Do a quick search for your query on the forum, most probably someone must have already asked it & an expert would have already replied to it. If not then make a post & an expert or a helpful member will soon reply.

b) Answer someone else's queries - If you think you can make a valuable contribution & help some one out, go ahead & reply. A good deed done always comes around.

c) Spare some time from your preparation to elaborately answer questions ont the forum. I stress on elaborately, because it will help you to ingrain the concepts that you have learned, even more deeper.

d) Read expert reply's very carefully, make separate notes of all the awesome information shared by them, it is priceless. Specifically by Bunuel mikemcgarry chetan2u @veritasprepkarishma daagh GMATNinja egmat sayantanc2k

e) Spare some time every week, to go through the "Share GMAT Experience" forum & congratulate people. Reading debriefs will help you in understanding the pitfalls in GMAT prep & on Test day. It's great to learn from other's experiences.


I hope this will help you & set you on the right path.

All the Best!!


Cheers!
GyM

You should better focus on a solid study plan with sound strategy. Here is a study plan for you

Best Courses (Budget)

1. e-GMAT

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

You are welcome, bud!!

Few more links for Verbal Prep by the awesome & entertaining Sir Charles GMATNinja , never a dull moment, when learning from this guy!!

https://gmatclub.com/forum/verbal-live-with-gmat-ninja-sc-pronouns-that-parallelism-250568.html

https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-ninja-webinars-videos-consolidated-list-wednesdays-series-259743.html#p2015711 - Start your prep here.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/verbal-chat-with-a-tutor-every-wednesday-at-7-30-am-pst-8-pm-ist-239078.html

https://gmatclub.com/forum/experts-topic-of-the-week-the-two-ninjas-241894.html


Now use this stuff smartly, it is easy to get lost in all the information. I suggest that you spend some extra time, just to sort all the information. You can make a spreadsheet & categorize everything into main categories & Sub categories & have a plan to utilize each link. for e.g, if you are learning concepts on Noun modifiers, finish all the links which provide information on Noun modifiers together.

Also to efficiently practice questions on the forum, use the below search option.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/search.php?view=search_tags


Keep hammering!


Cheers!

Hi Prateekj05,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. You should dedicate around 3 months to achieve a good score. I would encourage you take one of the two GMAT PREP practice test. You can know your weaknesses and 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 a GMATPREP course. 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. It's an amazing course. 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 try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. Just by going through these guides and solving the OG will help you reach 600+.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 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 latest version of OG, Quant and Verbal review and 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.
