Scoring 550 at GMAT, How many weeks needed ? Sun Feb 26, 2012 11:04 am
Hi all,
Im 24 years old student from an economical background with a poor knowledge on mathematics especially algebra & arithmetic.
To score 550 how many days will I need it on a flex schedule for maths & data sufficiency ?
Thank you for your opinion, you lucky mates who already pass it with higher scores

Regards,

For example, if you're currently scoring at the 530 level, then it won't take long to reach your 550 target score.
If you're currently scoring at the 330 level, then it could take months to reach your target score.

To better determine the length of the road ahead, you should take an official practice test (http://www.mba.com/the-gmat/download-free-test-preparation-software.aspx) to see where you currently stand. Who knows - perhaps you're already scoring above 550

Cheers,
Brent

I would try one of the old paper exams from GMAT.com. They cost some money, but you want to save the CAT exams there for the end of your prep work. They will give you an accurate representation if that is all you are looking to find.
