Hi bb

I'm planning to take GMAT in Feb next year. bb You seem owner of this site. Seems some of links are still under construction. It'd be better if you put some practice questions (Not tests) which can help refreshing skills.

Dear DKP,

If you are taking the test in Feb, when are you applying?
The reason I am asking is that I took my test in Feb and was late for most of the schools to apply (well, I got what I originally wanted) but all the rest of the schools were not open anymore and even if they were, the third round is not the best one.... I felt a lot of pressure.

Second, with all of my strength, will, and desire, I am not able to come up with a reasonable number of questions, and besides - it is very boring. However, do not get discouraged, for there is a number of resources available in the links section. See under Sample Tests.

If you check, you will find several GMAT+ books - each of them contains 6 full tests and there are 3 or 4 of them there, which makes a HUGE number of practice questions. Have you seen those?
Also there is GMAT+ Book 3 available for download in MS Word format and it is linked to from a few pages (I think one of the verbal pages)

I am also very sorry about the broken links. I am currently tracing them, and I think besides the one I just found on the Verbal page, all of the are good.

With all the respect,
BB

Ouch, Ouch, Ouch,
Please, I beg you, take a look at the Final Week Tips I have posted on the site. I would suggest that you take TOEFL first.
I actually had to visit another city since the test center in mine was full, so I went took TOEFL on Saturday and GMAT on Tuesday - the earliest available after Saturday. There is a number of advantages to taking TOELF before GMAT - you see the center, get used to the computers (as much as you can in 3 hours), know the assistant (mine remembered me and let me go first), etc. The section I referred to covers it quite nicely.

Also, it is quite mysterious why you want to take TOEFL after GMAT. TOELF is easier and you should not really prepare to it if you are taking GMAT. I just looked at a few SC questions on my way there and that's it, and it was pretty easy - only once had a doubt on a SC question - I had to read it 3 or 4 times and finally I spotted an article error)

Do I make sense or is there other reason you are taking TOELF after GMAT?

Hi bb

Even I'd advocate to take TOEFL first. But for me certain things are not fixed. I'm not sure whether I'll be able to apply for 2004 but I'm trying my best for that. Actually In my job I've to travel frequently for 2-3 months. So for me it's difficult to judge when and where I can take test. even I'm not sure whether I can take GMAT in Feb it may get delayed. Since GMAT is valid for 5 years so I want to take it as soon as possible. as far as TOEFL is concerned you're right, it doesn't take much, it's easy compared to GMAT. So what I'm thinking is to finish GMAT first because it needs a lot of practice and time (Which I rarely get) Once GMAT is over, with a little effort I can take toefl. Moreover as you pointed out practice in SC in GMAT will help me in structure and RC in reading part of toefl. So I'll have to invest little time for that. That's why I'm plannng to take GMAT first.

You can kill me, but I am not following your logic...
What exactly do you need to prepare to for TOEFL?
TOELF is a pass or fail test and it does not really influence anything. It is nice to have a perfect 300, but, still, nobody cares about TOEFL. Taking the test early is a CHANCE to try how you feel at the test center, which I think is a part of the success. The only difference of T and G is the listening section... that's the only thing that I can think of that you may need to prepare to, other than that, I would not even bother much.
On the other hand, what if you get a 250 on TOEFL with some errors in Reading/SC, you may want to spend more time preparing to GMAT.

Unless you are really confident about your GMAT, i would do the opposite of yours. As I said, i attribute a part of my success to the fact that I took two exams almost together and at the same place.

Really, it is up to you, and I realize that i am getting annoying, so you don't have to justify your reasons. I understand that nobody here is dumb and does not need simple things explained, but I have given you my facts; the decision is yours.

Hey bb

Don't worry man I'm not gonna kill you. i could have followed your advice if You'd launched this site 3 months ago and advised me same. But now I'm in half way for my prep of GMAT.

Also your advice has boosted my morale and made me more determined now to do things the other way . because I believe

Winners don't do different things they do things differently

Wish me luck (That is of course needed )
