Hi everyone! I am a bit under self-induced time pressure (wasted a lot of time, who cares:) as I am working on application MIT Sloan Fellows accepting EA with a deadline by December 5 and then I would like to try chances with a Stanford accepting GMAT only... Given that EA is similar to GMAT apart from being shorter and valuing IR at the same level as Verbal/Quantitative skills, I am thinking of the following plan - register for EA at the end of November (1 month to go ), prepare for it/register for GMAT at the Dec 15-20 (trick is that GMAT is available in 20 days, whereas EA is available immediately). I already did GMAT in Jan 17 and scored only 36 in Quant (that is my biggest challenge, I am not doing particularly well under time pressure in quant), 39 in verbal and only 5 in IR (honestly not cared much about it, but will have to at EA test), AW was just 4.0 - I did not spend an hour preparing for it....
It seems like I should focus on quantitative part and IR. What you think of this plan?
Is GMAC official preparation course (costs just \$35) good for EA preparation? What would you advise for intensive course for GMAT? Official GMAT? Or given my weakness in quants - Manhatan Math preparation? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I haven't seen the EA prep, but if I were you I'd stick with official material (OGs) for questions. Your verbal (39) is excellent, but your quant clearly needs work. Think about possibly starting from the basics there.

Thanks a lot for reply! I am amazed by your GMAT score, fantastic! What is your advise on Math - OSg is a good source of questions, but is it good in explanation? I tried tests on these siite - found them quite challenging particularly for time limit

Try some of the sites mentioned in this post and check if they could be useful for you. As for OG explanations, you can look for more detailed explanations here whenever you find an explanation in the OG lacking. And testing: you should ideally be focusing on official tests at this stage (with just over a month to go for your GMAT). There are 6 official tests: 2 Free GMATPreps, and 4 (2+2) tests from the exam packs.

Hi Erjan,

I am in a similar situation as you were and was hoping you could share some advice. I am looking to apply for EMBA and just starting out my preparation for the EA and GMAT (possibly for programs that don't accept EA). In your experience would you study GMAT first and then EA or do the EA first and then GMAT ?

Thanks
