Also there is oppportunity in IIM A from this year.
I think this is also a better option .But for this 5 yrs work ex is required. I am a engineer 4 years of work EX. Planning to appear GMAT next year for tha same as well as ISB. Any friend with similar opinion PM me.
Gave the GMAT today! Got a score of 710 (Quant - 51, verbal 34). Pretty much satisfied. I suppose i could have done much better in verbal, but at the same time 710 is not bad either.
OG - read almost all the Sentence Correction questions around 240 out of the 260 odd).
Kaplan - bought the Kaplan book without the CD.(not kaplan 800). Did not use it all that much, just gave the full-length tests which it had and found the approach to critical reasonsing mentioned in the book helpful.
Princeton review - found it very helpful for Sentence correction.
Powerprep CD - 1st test - 690
Powerprep CD - 1st test - 710
Did not give any other computer based tests.
I registered for the GMAT exactly 2 months earlier....hardly did much the first month. The second month, i got a bit serious and kept aside atleast an hour or 2 per day for GMAT preps. I took just 2 days frm work off the week prior to my test. Went to office on Monday and Tuesday....coz my line of thinking was, i wont accomplish much by studying all day 2 days before - a casual day at work wud maybe ease my nerves....work's not that hectic now.
Coming to the test...
Analytical Writing went off pretty well! Completed both reasonably well before time. Lets see how that goes when i get the official score card.
Then came Quant, i was slow to start off with, checking and double checking each of my answers.....Guys GMAT math is extremely simple if u've prepared for CAT....i scored a pathetic 70 %ile in CAT math. So all you have to concentrate on is verbal, especially sentence correction and RC which have been my pitfall!
Anyways, i was able to answer all quant questions right according to me.
Then came Verbal, it started of with a couple of SC's, then came a small comprehension...then i few CR's and then a BOLD face question...this gave me confidence that i was doing well bcoz someone had mentioned in their earlier posts on another thread that the BOLD face question is an indication of ur doing well..anyways, the questions were relatively reasonable....i found the SC's a bit tough towards the end. got 3 RC's in all, 40, 80 and 60 words respectively.
Final Words of Wisdom!
Guys the GMAT is much much simpler than the CAT. i gave the CAT last year and fared miserably.
verbal - 95 %
quant - 70%
overall - 78 %
Especially GMAT math is way more simpler...just dont make silly mistakes and answer whats asked! verbal, well work on it...practise all OG questions religiously!
Thats it! my 2 paise worth!
