I am very new to this forum. I want to be a member of this discussion group and gain a lot of knowledge about this site and I also want to share my thoughts. If any type of inconvenience, then I apologize for that. Best Regards, prafulla dhakate ### GMAT/MBA Expert Elite Legendary Member Joined 23 Jun 2013 Posted: 10197 messages Followed by: 496 members Upvotes: 2867 GMAT Score: 800 Hi prafulla dhakate, Welcome to the site! It sounds like you're just starting out. Is that true? Have you done any studying so far? If you're just beginning, 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 bit of practice first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the general content and question types first, then that's fine - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. 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?
