I'm Nancy and I am writing from Los Angeles. I graduated from university with an Eng. Lit degree 3 years ago. I hope to apply for a Masters in Healthcare Management/Administration. I would love to join the 700 club (who doesn't?) but my main obstacles are to work on my focus, discipline, and confidence (I'm a slave to procrastination). I have a loooooooong way to go to improve both my scores, but my verbal is definitely much stronger.

I am restarting my 60 day study guide again and I'm really excited to power through all the way this time! I hope to be able to lean on and learn from everyone here. (:
Hi Nancy,

Welcome to the forums. I think procrastination is pretty common when it comes to the GMAT. There are students on this who have been preparing for several years :-)

The 60-Day Study Guide should help direct your studies.

All the best,
Brent

Hi all,

I'm Caolan and just starting off my GMAT 60 day challenge. Hoping to apply for MBA programs beginning Fall 2016 and take my GMAT this September/October. I've been working in marketing for the past 3 years and am looking to change things up.

Starting off with a baseline of 610, so I'm hoping I can push that up into the 700s with some work on my quant.

Best,

Caolan

Hello everyone, Mark here!

I've taken the GMAT twice before (Mar 12 and May 14), and now I'm back to studying for a Feb 16 test date. The only thing that's holding me back from a 700+ is my quant score; so I'm really focusing on that during my prep this time around. I've been using Magoosh and it's been amazing so far.

I'm a USAFA 2011 grad and current active duty Air Force officer; I'll be applying to schools for a 2017 matriculation and 2019 graduation. Excited to start this journey!

Reading all of your success stories has been very inspirational. Any tips, strategies, or words of encouragement are very much appreciated.

Here's to joining the ranks of those who have BEATTHEGMAT!

Hello Everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank Beat The GMAT for this great study plan.

My name is Omprakash Jha and I'm from Mumbai, India. I have started learning GMAT a week back with 60 day study guide.

My first GMAT practice test is 580 and I'm targeting something between 720 and 760. I plan to take exam by June end (ofcourse 2016).

Hope next 60 days turns out to be great learning phase of my career and give me some good practice to score 750+ in GMAT ;)


Cheers,

Omprakash Jha

My name is Rick,

I live in Washington DC. I love the area and would love to stay and go to school at Georgetown. I plan to apply to Columbia, Cornell and NYU as well.

I took the GMAT in December 2015 and scored 590.Having taken some time off I came to the realization recently I absolutely have to attend business school due to the nature of my current occuppation. 4

My goal is to get to 700. I will take the test in July 1st 2017 this year.

This is Amandeep, an Indian regular employee overseas.
I started preparing for GMAT this month, I need to achieve 99%ile in 2 months for my target school.

From my 1st GMAT official test Q47 V25 ~ 590 scores, this target appears to be very far.
Any leads for a two-month journey from V25->V40+ will be highly appreciated.

Warm regards,
AD

Hi Amandeep,

Raising a 590 to a 760+ will take some serious effort - and you will have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. All of that work will likely take at least another 3 months of consistent, guided study - so you might need to change your timeframe a bit. Rather than continue this conversation here, I suggest you repost in the GMAT Strategy Forum here:

https://www.beatthegmat.com/gmat-strategy-f3.html

If you post a bit more information about your situation (how you've been studying, where/when you plan to apply to School, etc.), then you'll likely receive specific advice that you can use to plan out your studies.
