Hi all,


I am planning to enroll for the MBA program next year at a good university.
I just enrolled for the GMAT exam yesterday. I aim for a score > 700 and have three months to study while working full time. Although I am super motivated to nail the exam and study however anxiety is getting the better of me.

My job is stressful most days (working in the financial sector) and often I work late or over weekends. I completed the last CFA exam back in 2018 so I am still in that zone of taking tests etc.

Below are the resources I will be using:

1. OG GMAT Guide Bundle
2. Manhanttan GMAT Prep Bundle (2012 edition)
3. Magoosh Premium Subscription 3 months plan

I have no idea what to start with and how should I go about it. So far I feel the quant area shouldn't be too hard for me but I do need brushing up with the verbal area. I took the magoosh diagnostic test for verbal and scored 4 out of 10 T_T Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hello pinkcookie456,

Preparing for GMAT along with a full-time job is always a struggle. Here is a video that can give you an idea of how you can plan better.

Here are some keys points that you should remember when you start

1. Make sure you are consistent with your prep - start with 45 mins a day but make sure you make it a habit.

2. Keep milestones for yourself - It's always important to keep a check on your progress. Since online courses give you a lot of flexibility people tend to not follow a plan.

3. There has to be a course correction if there is no improvement - Don't expect magic in 2-3 weeks of prep. But you should see an improvement in confidence, accuracy and time management. Reach out to professional expert help if you don't see improvement.

4. Keep an error log - This is extremely important to assess and see a pattern in the kind of mistakes you are doing.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Shree

The key to crack GMAT is to be consistent. You should be able to devote an hour on weekdays and minimum 9-10 hours over the weekends. Be patient and GMAT 700 won't be difficult.
