Hey Folks,

I've taken the first steps towards taking the GMAT. Today I registered for a GMAT prep class taught by Duke Continuing Studies. Yeah that's the Fuqua School of Business Duke. Classes run from September 9th through October 21st. I don't know the material they use for the class, but I'm guessing it is the OG, perhaps even the OG supplements. If not I'll get them.

I also have purchased the entire MGMAT series. Overkill? Probably not.

Perhaps little history is due here. I'm rapidly approaching the "ripe old age" of 44. In terms of a full-time MBA student this is truly ancient. I've been in the workforce for 14+ years since earning my BSBA from Babson College. I'm currently working for a well known high tech company doing virtually nothing related to my degree. My career has stalled, and, given the current environment, I believe that my only reasonable option is to pursue an MBA. PM me if you want more details, or look for a post on another message board here that will provide some background.

My plan of attack:
  1. Buy whole MGMAT Prep series
  2. Register for GMAT prep class
  3. Read through MGMAT series
  4. Start participating in GMATclub Q & V forums
  5. Take first GMATPrep test exam before starting class
  6. Focus on weakest areas, work on better areas
  7. Take MGMAT exams during the class to help focus and use teaching staff to answer questions and provide more tutoring.
  8. Register for actual GMAT exam by late September. By then I should have a good feeling for my progress.
  9. Study, Study, Study
  10. Study some more.
  11. Take GMAT in the 1st half of December or middle half of January

My goal for all this is to score a 750. I'm not confident, or foolish(?) enough to aim higher even though I am ex US Air Force. :)

More as thing progress...

Cheers,

cP

My old G-date was 01-sep. Now that I have realized the seriousness of task at hand, I have rescheduled my G-date to 6-dec (Saturday). Why don't you also take the same date 8-)
