There is nothing hard about studying or preparing for GMAT from my opinion. Because once you try to understand the formulas and patterns with respect to both math and verbal sections you would be able to solve most of the problems. What makes it difficult is that solving all these by applying all the things that you have studied in the stipulated time. This involve lot of practice.

Hi All,
I will be starting my GMAT prep from march onwards from the scratch and most probably would schedule the exam in first week of June, so I have a good 3 months to prepare. I would like to know about the preparation strategy and what all materials I will require to score a decent score(targeting 700+). I would also like to know that is it possible for me to prepare for the exam on self-basis or do I need to register for courses like egmat, kaplan, veritas, etc. I would really appreciate your response which could help with my preparation.
TIA

Hi singhdhiraj,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

While 3 months is a good amount of time to study for the GMAT, your particular needs might require more or less time than that (and you may or may not need to invest in a GMAT Course). The 700+ score is essentially the 90th percentile, meaning that 90% of Test Takers can't score at that level regardless of how many times they take the Test. This is meant to say that you might need to be a bit flexible with your plans (and you might end up needing to push back your Test Date).

1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Self-prep is almost always an option. A diagnostic test would help you understand just how far from (or close to ) your target score you are.
