Hi puys,

I will be moving to Blr shortly and therefore would like to join this group for preparing for GMAT. To give a brief about myself, I am not new to GMAT - have taken GMAT before, this time my only aim is to get a target score of 730+.

Self study is the best way forward. How are you all interacting? Gtalk/FB ???
