Plan Your GMAT Prep Strategy
Identify the schools you want to apply to.
Check program application deadlines.
Check the programs’ GMAT score ranges and set your target score.
Explore mba.com for information about graduate management education, specific schools and programs, the GMAT exam, and GMAT prep materials.
Give yourself enough time to prepare in the way that works best for you —self-study, study groups, tutoring or, classes. 3-6 months allows plenty of opportunity for different preparation activities.
If you have limited study time, try to include four weeks to take advantage of the various GMAT Official Practice products. Remember that if you have been out of school for several years, it may take time to readjust to studying.
If you have lots of time to study, don’t spread your prep time out so much that you lose momentum and make sure you practice regularly enough for the lessons learned to stick.
Develop a study schedule that lists not just when but also what you’ll study.
Select your date based on your study schedule, and book your GMAT exam at a test center or online – the farther in advance you book, the greater your choice.
