Hi
Sir I am from Delhi, I am from Arts background , I wish to pursue MBA (International Business).
I consider myself to be very weak in Quant aptitude, let's say math overall.
Currently, I am preparing for the GMAT level math from the scratch, at home only (with help of a private tutor).
I believe for verbal section I can routinely self-study using good resources. So, here I ask you to kindly suggest me your material that would make me understand RC & SC to a good extent. So, that I can at least balance my low Quant score in verbal. Please tell about various packages so that I can choose according to my budget and need.

Also,only 15 days have passed ever since I started preparing for GMAT, and still there's a long way to go to cover up my Math understanding and practice portion.
(as I said I am very weak in Math, and I need to score min 650).
Kindly kill my confusion by telling, till HOW LONG can I delay my GMAT exam(as I am still preparing), and yet manage to get an admission seat in an above average Public college for fall 2014.

Thanks & Regards
Priya Sharma

Hi Priya,
I'm afraid soon you'll found this thread locked by the moderators as this is NOT the RIGHT sub-forum to clarify this.

Please post it in proper sub-forums - either General GMAT questions or Ask GMAT Experts.

Hi,

Thanks for writing here

1) On Verbal - I would suggest you to take the pack from e-gmat (you can go to the Gmatclub Market Place) , the same will help you save time and will reduce your load since the platform these guys have used is very interactive. For SC, you may also go for a few of resources and notes that are available at the GMATClub. But, believe me if you strong in RC and SC, but if you do not do well in your CR, then you might land in trouble.

For CR, I would suggest you to go through the Manhattan guide or for the Powerscore guide

2) On Quant - I would suggest you to go through the Manhattan Guides, they are comprehensive. You may refer to their online videos for the specific subject that you think you wanna explore more

Overall, you have to have a strategy for the GMAT, one can't attend the same the way one has taken exams till now during education, the exam requires to choose the battles that you wanna win and you wont mind to loose a few Qs to win the overall battle - score

In terms of timing to take GMAT, it really depends on which schools are you planning to apply. Overall, I would encourage you to apply in the first and second round since the chances of getting admits are higher during these two rounds

Hope this helps, please feel free to write or PM for further help

Thanks

I dont see which school you are applying to but may will allow you to submit your application even if you have taken the GMAT 1 day before the deadline. (you have to include your score on the application but the school will not get a verification of the score for at least 7-14 days, but that's usually is OK). You can check with your specific schools/programs.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Many find that the essays take as much or even more effort so unless they are done and you just to improve your GMAT, I would not recommend taking the GMAT a day before or even a month before in the ideal world.

Depends on where you are planning to apply. Many schools have round 2 deadline in Jan. Some have in Nov/Dec too. Try to take GMAT at least a month before the first round 2 deadline. It's advisable to take it even earlier so that you can retake GMAT if need be (you can take GMAT only once in 30 days). But if you are not prepared till that time, there is no point taking it early. Hence, you need to first make a list of schools to which you are going to apply. Check their round 2 deadlines and circle the one which is earliest, say Dec 4. Take GMAT not later than 1st Nov. You will need a month to work on your applications too. Also, it takes about 15-20 days for the school to receive your official GMAT score. It's good to have at least that much time between your GMAT and the deadline.
