Requesting all to please share preparation strategy from which i can prepare effectively in such short time? ### GMAT/MBA Expert Elite Legendary Member Joined 23 Jun 2013 Posted: 10197 messages Followed by: 497 members Upvotes: 2867 GMAT Score: 800 Hi rohans51288, What is your score goal? One month of study time is not much. Most Test Takers need the better part of 3 months (or more) to hit their respective goal scores. As a way to gauge your natural abilities, I suggest that you take a full-length practice CAT test (you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com). Once you have those scores, you'll have a much better sense of your strengths and weaknesses and how far you are from your goal.

I will surely follow your advice and will take full length practice test. GMAT Instructor Joined 17 Dec 2010 Posted: 1035 messages Followed by: 364 members Upvotes: 474 July 22nd is SOON. I don't mean to scare you off, but a 700+ is most likely off the table unless you've already got some amazing Quant skills and a good intuitive grasp of English grammar. I'm assuming you might be a non-native speaker? Check out this article first: http://gmatrockstar.com/2014/02/03/10-tips-for-non-native-speakers-on-the-gmat/ It discusses how you can quickly tackle Verbal from a non-native perspective. Next: BUY MGMAT Sentence Correction. I don't work for MGMAT, but this is one of the best grammar-building books on the market for GMAT. Dive into it and hit it hard, cover to cover, doing the corresponding OG13 questions in the back of each chapter. I'd also suggest you become a regular watcher of the "Thursdays with Ron" videos. Finally, don't waste your time doing tons of CR and RC questions before you have a good strategy in place. Since you're short on time, I'd do some serious research on how to break down a passage, identify question types, come up with predictions, and use process of elimination when evaluating answer choices NOW. Do not waste time. Either read up on CR and RC strategies online or work with a respected tutor. You don't want to get pointed in the wrong direction. _________________ Vivian Kerr GMAT Rockstar, Tutor https://www.GMATrockstar.com https://www.yelp.com/biz/gmat-rockstar-los-angeles Former Kaplan and Grockit instructor, freelance GMAT content creator, now offering affordable, effective, Skype-tutoring for the GMAT at$150/hr.
