Dear experts,

I am a 36 yrs old doctor and plan to write the GMAT. I am not only intimidated by the sheer number of prep courses but also the techniques and tricks so many claim to teach.

I am at the rock bottom as far as maths is concerned , for verbal may be( I might be wrong) only slightly better. I took the diagnostic test from one of the prep courses. I scored 340. I had no idea about most of the basics of math as well as found the format to be new to me. So I really mean I have to start from basics.

I need to learn everything from the basics just like an eight yrs old.

I have already bought the MGMAT books and the OG 2018 as they sounded like a no brainer with so many gmatclubbers swearing by it.

I need help in planning out my preparation with a target to complete it in approx 3 months. Another 45 days to do some questions and work on weaknesses. I can spare 3 hours every day and on weekend (only Sunday ) I can spare 6 hours.

Now I need to know...
1. Pls help me make a plan to follow and if anyone already had one please send a PDF.( Will give Kudos in return ;)

2. By what time is being ready with a score good for most school's application deadline.

Any help would be highly appreciable. Calling everyone for their inputs.

You can find couple of good plans here
or for still better discipline here. The latter has optional feature of
sending a mail to you daily to keep you on toes. :-)

Usually one month to 45 days is advisable between application deadlines and GMAT date.

Your both resources are bang on, so just keep balancing them with a couple of mocks after few days of your prep.
Hope this helps!!

Hi DrGMATer,

Three months is good enough to achieve a good score. It's a good thing you have taken a Mock test. You now know your weaknesses and can 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.

Your choice of using MGMAT guides for your preparation is great. MGMAT guides 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.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. 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.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a 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 the latest version verbal review and Quant review for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

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.
