Thank you very much, this is very insignful and has given me a lot to consider.

I already started learning speed reading, but only using a book. Do you have recommendations for courses / resources to improve reading speed?

Hello I have faced the same issue. I had scheduled it for the 28th October, and in the end I have now rescheduled to the 16th December because I am nowhere near ready. I think it's up to you to know if you will be consistent with your studying for longer. In terms of cost, I'd rather pay $60 to resc...

Hi Busytrying, I just wanted to chime in and let you know that as long as you've purchased and are using the program, you can write a review (I believe). I see that Beat the GMAT is offering a $10 Amazon gift card per review, and Economist GMAT Tutor is offering an additional $25 on top of that. Wh...

Hi everyone! I just took my first CAT exam today (Manhattan) and unfortuntely, scored a 410. Quant=15, Verbal=30. I understand these numbers are very low, I have been out of school for nearly 4 years now and hold a Bachelor's in Communications so, needless to say, I never took many math courses in ...

Hi everyone, Busytrying - with a Q13, I think that you probably need to review some math basics. The Empowergmat course listed a bunch of free links at Khan Academy that can probably help you there. It sounds like the more time you have, the better. My study plan worked for me because I devoted the...

How to retreive AWA submitted in GMATPrep CAT

Hi

I tried a CAT on the GMATPrep software today thinking I could later review my AWA essay submitted eventhough it is not graded. Now I cannot find it anywhere. Is there any way to retreive it?

Thank you

Do I need the TOEFL for my applications?

Hello

I am French, but have completed an undergrad and masters in the UK, fully in English, as well as working in England for years now.

Would I still need to take a test of my English language skills to apply to INSEAD & LBS?

Thank you

I have heard about Economics GMAT programs. Do you think I should join the whole program for those 5 CATs? Is there anyway I can buy only the CATs? Looking at my experience , does it make sense to re-take all the CAT's I took for the first GMAT? Thanks everyone , really need all of your inputs. Hel...
