Hello everyone, my name is Nayan, and I’m delighted to meet all of you. As a recent graduate from India at the age of 22, I’m excited to start preparing for the New GMAT focus edition. I’m reaching out today to seek your valuable advice and guidance.
Let me provide you with some insights into my abilities. I have a strong command of the English language, but I believe there is still room for improvement. On the other hand, my quantitative skills are currently weak. However, I am determined and motivated to overcome this challenge with time.
At this stage, I’m looking for guidance on how to begin my GMAT preparation and which platform would be most suitable for my needs. I’ve come across various recommendations on this forum, suggesting that eGMAT is highly effective for improving English skills, while TTP stands out for mathematics. Additionally, I’ve learned that the verbal section of the GMAT Focus edition is not significantly more difficult than the previous version.
Considering my intermediate level of English proficiency and below-average aptitude in mathematics, I would greatly appreciate your input on selecting the most suitable platform for my studies.

Abeljr, there are a few places to start. 1. Read BB’s guide (I’ll attach a link below)

2. Use this site. We have every quant and verbal official question (for free). Use OG (official guide), gmat prep, and Lsat questions for verbal. For quant, use whatever. It’s very difficult for a prep company to screw up a quant question.

3. Read my cr and RC guides. Follow gmatninja and Generis (both great at sc).

4. Find a course that suits you. TTP (target test prep), egmat, empower, magoosh, ect are all places that offer lessons online. Don’t do a live class — they’re expense not needed

5. Make sure to learn the fundamentals and basics of the quant and verbal sections before you do questions. Let the courses give you practice problems, but don’t start drilling until you know your stuff

Rahul_s, only you know when the time is right, mate. If you do 2-3 mocks and you get a consistent score that isn’t lucky, you’re ready

Hi All, I am planning to give the regular GMAT exam and not GMAT focus, as far as I have understood till 2024 exam takers has a choice... As I have just started with my preparation should I prepare for GMAT focus or the regular GMAT?

Hi, If I want to pursue a short-term course in quant then what’s the right time of it? Should I pursue it after taking the Gmat or it can be done before taking the test? Someone please advice.

Hi tiwary.vinita10,

The regular GMAT may be the safer option this cycle. If you're targeting R1, you definitely need to take the current GMAT.

Hi Ajitesh, As I have no maths background. This suggestion was given by Michcel from mbaMIssion that in order to showcase my quantative skills in my resume I must take up some short term quant courses like statistics, MBA maths or Calculus etc. This thing will make my resume more competitive.
