Hey eternal_optimist, Thank you for this post. It has partly lifted the gloom surrounding me. I just gave GMAT for the first time today and got a pathetic 430 (Q25, V24) :( :( I feel devastated and get the feeling like I am the biggest loser out there. I can relate with you how embarrassing it is t...


Till now, I had just heard about great people and their struggle to success and today I have read one of those struggle right from mouth of the "struggler" who eventually became a winner. Mindblowing post. I'm about to begin my preparation and need to know for how much time should I prepare for the...


I just gave GMAT today with a dismal 560. This was my second attempt. First one was on June 27th 2011 with 580. I thought to quit today, thinking GMAT is not my cup of tea. Was looking for some people who could achieve 700+ score and were with <600 scores and here you are as an awesome motivation f...


Im not sure about an online one on one tutoring. How does that work? I'm not sure how does online one on one tutoring work. I'd suggest that you post your query on the "GMAT strategy" forum to get a response. I want to give it in two months- December mid for sure. I dont want to lower my expectatio...


I think that the biggest issue here is that you have prepared way too much-for a much much longer duration that what is considered ideal.

I'm in the process of creating a schedule for my myself but lil confused about how many hrs to put in and what to study i.e. either Verbal...

I have been studying for it since July but my scores are just touching 600 in mocks. Pacing is a problem for me and i...


I wanted to ask you a question about competency, especially in regards to quant. I am looking at taking the test in December and recently scored a 560 on a practice CAT. What areas did you focus on to improve besides numbers properties. I saw your earlier comment about having lofty expectations to ...


1) Should i retake GMAT? 2) If i retake, what should i do to ensure that i can get my score 700+? 3) In case i do retake and score around 700+, how will the admission panels view multiple attempts? Regards Gmatjeet 1. Frankly speaking,with your kind of experience, the schools wouldn't be too much b...


@ Eternal Well I'm pulling off 9-10 hour work days now. I spend about 3 hours a day commuting. I'm not able to read much because of the bumpy ride. But even on days when I get a good 5-6 hours to myself, I am not organized. I try to pack in everything- facebook, exercise, other household stuff..The...
