Hey all, i was told by one of my friends that this forum can provide very good advise for GMAT takers. I am thinking of taking GMAT to apply for an MBA but I am totally clueless about it.

Can anyone suggest how i should start?

You can start here. There are a lot of other resources that you should also take a look at, but those can be kept for later.

Hi Dukemm,

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.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

1) Get a copy of the Official Guide - assuming you don't have existing editions, just get the latest one.

2) Go to mba.com and download the GMATprep software and test yourself

Now that you have a sense of what to expect, start studying from the above resources and supplemental sources. We provide some at the Practice Pill Platform - which is an extension of our course. Questions are free - but a paid membership is required for video solutions.

http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/

During your studies - divide and conquer. Focus specifically in a particular subsection for multiple consecutive days before moving onto the next one. That's the best way to maximize your improvement.

Once you feel comfortable start mixing the different question types - because that's how they'll actually appear during the exam.

Good luck!
