Hi guys,

I wish you the best for all of your advices and help,

I've just arrived to San Diego to complete my masters,

The shocking thing i wasn't aware that i cant sign up with SDSU in spring,

They only accepts internationals in fall,

So i have 4 months and a half, they close applications in 1 Apr,

They ask for minimum to be 540 to review my application, hopefully i can make it,

Cause i have to get 6.5 in IELTS also,

I am in shock and very disappointed, any help guys?

I can buy any books suggested please, and if there is any plans? 2 month plan for example then i take an exam to see my current result if its enough or not?

I am trying to be an optimistic, IELTS 6.5 and Gmat 550+ is kinda challenge and i am willing to take it

HELP ME,

Thanks in advance

Hi Trytosleep,

Welcome to GMATClub!

When I started my preparation to the GMAT, I also had about 4 months. I was able to get 700+, so you can do as well!
I used Manhattan GMAT Startegy guides, except for Critical reasoning( CR). For CR, I used Powerscore CR Bible, a textbook that clearly divides the CR question types and provides with specific strategy solutions for each type.

You can look through this thread on textbooks:

1. Take a free GMATPrep test to understand your current level
2. Go through all the areas from MGMAT. You can follow GMATClub or any other good study plan(there are many good study plans available, just google it and find which suits your need)
3. After step 2, practice the Official Guide questions
4. Point out your weak areas and review those areas.

Additionally, you can buy eGMAT or EMPOWERgmat course. eGMAT course is really thorough and good for No-Natives for english.

550 is not a big score and you'll be able to get it. :-)
