Hi ChivaS,
How is your preparation going on.
I am also an Engineering back ground with computers as my Specialization. I m working as a Software Engineer from last two years. Now i am planning to go for about 8-9 months preparation and take GMAT and get into one of the TOP Collages by end of 2008 or 2009 beginning so as i will gain about 3-3.5 years of experience in this software industry by then.

Do let me know in your reply what all the materials you hold related to GMAT preparation and also please suggest me books and the place where i can get them.
I am looking forward to meet you once if u r also looking to.:grab:



Good to know that you could start your preparation.

I am with Engg' background and am relatively strong in Math.
I used to have problem with my reading speeds, but these days as
I am doing more reading I could improve my reading speed a bit; still
need to improve on the comprehension part.

I plan to prepare for GMAT by myself.

By next week end, I plan to take a mock GMAT test and see where I stand.

what is your background, about academic/work.

I too download couple of book from different forums online and started my preparation starting with Verbal section as i feel that is my week area .. its not that i am strong in Maths but still verbal is some how a bit uneasy part for me ....
I would also like to know are you looking for any coaching or are you planing on your own ...
Why cannot we meet together to have some talks ..


Hi Phani4mba,
During this weekend, I pulled together all the study material I collected over a period of time. I started feeling more comfortable just because I am now spirited much better after following all the information in this forum.

The next task is to have a study plan that suits me well.

I will need to start with a rough plan and later keep tailoring it
as I get nearer to the GMAT day.

Let me know, what phase you are in. Hopefully we can have some overlap in preparation based on our individual plans.

Hi Ravysh and Chivas,
I am also planning to take GMAT this year ... hope we can get together and i believe Ravysh already having experience before can be very helpful .... Please do contact me personally

phani4mba at gmail dot com ....

Looking forward for your mails


Hey Ravysh,

I plan to take the GMAT CAT around the same time as you mentioned, July-Aug 2007.

It will be interesting to have a group so that we can share our learning
experiences and work on individual weaknesses by mutual discussions.

Let me know, if you are still open for the offer.
