    Hi sudtiwari,

    Based on what you've described, I have a few questions:

    1) How long have you been studying?
    2) You say that you want to finish your studies in a month, but a Test Date in late May is closer to 2.5 months away. What do you plan to do during that 1.5 month period of time?
    3) Have you taken any FULL-LENGTH practice CATs yet? How have you scored (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
    4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

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

    HI Rich

    Please find the answers

    1) How long have you been studying? = its been 2 weeks now
    2) You say that you want to finish your studies in a month, but a Test Date in late May is closer to 2.5 months away. What do you plan to do during that 1.5 month period of time?

    Actually i am working in an IT industry. So want to start giving Mock Tests once i complete the syllabus.

    3) I didnt give any mocks yet
    4) And Yes i want to apply to Business school's ( Nanyang Singapore and Great Lakes ,India are my choices)

    Please provide some inputs. Thanks alot for helping Smile

    Don't wait until after you've "completed the syllabus" to take a practice test. Take one right away, so you know a) what the test feels like under time constraints, and b) what your strengths and weaknesses are.

    You can take one for free on the Mprep site: https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/free-gmat-practice-test/

    Then, make sure to REVIEW your practice test in a lot of depth. Look for areas of content weakness, but also focus on careless mistakes you've made, and being to track these. This will help you to know where to focus your studies.

    Hi sudtiwari,

    Since you're just beginning your studies, 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). 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. It's also important to take FULL CATs on a regular basis (1 CAT every 1-2 weeks) so that we can measure your progress.

    Many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores, so it's not practical to assume that you can finish all of your studies in such a short period of time (and then just take practice CATs afterwards).

    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.

    Rich

    I would suggest kind of obvious, but useful suggestions:)
    Firstly, train yourself to do calculations in quant second. Take a small trainee sessions of counting in mind everyday to practice this skill.
    Secondly, solve the preparation tests examples at least twice a week.
    Practice makes perfect and short study sessions are better.
