Hi Anurag. I've decided to study for the GMAT and will be taking it around June-July next year.

1. So how do you think I should start? Shall I download the GMAT prep from mba.com and take the two tests it offers? Will, by doing that, I not be wasting the GMATPrep tests which I could of course use during the last leg of my preparation i.e. just before taking the GMAT?

2. Could you please give me a list of material/books I should target to study in the next six months given that I have enough time to study.

Regards.

@Sahni: Don't worry about that BRO you can give the Prep tests again and again. All you need to do is uninstall and download again the s/f then install again and take the exams any number of times

All the best for your GMAT journey
