Hi Puys,

It's been a while that I have been contributing in whatever way I can to this community and it is interesting to notice the enthusiasm and motivation of the members. Since I gained so much from the posts here, I consider it a responsibility to give back.

I have been through most of what you guys are likely to go through. From a GMAT of 650 I got 760 in my second attempt. There was a lot that I learnt from my mistakes. I worked with McKinsey Knowledge Centre for almost 5 years and quit my job once I had a call from Kellogg. It was only after paying the fees that I realized how desperate I was to work on my business plan. I have decided to work on my startup and Kellogg has allowed me a deferred admission for the next year. Which means I can continue contributing to the community. 😃

I would be happy to answer any questions related to GMAT preparation or the application process. Though I had a lot of online material with me, it was important to know which ones to use and which ones to not use. The application process is equally important and one needs to be very careful about how the profile is presented.

So if you have any questions, feel free to ask me here, PM me or mail me (mail id in my signature) and I`ll try to answer them to my best.

All the Best to you all!!

Folks, let me make it very clear that asking/sharing of copyright material is against forum rules.

Hello @neha4659 ,
Please give your inputs on preparation of Verbal section of GMAT in limited time of 3 months.
I am referring to -
1. OG'13
2. IMS study material
3. 1000 SC

4. RC 99 by aristotle.
As you correctly pointed out -

Of course there is a huge lot of material available online, but it's very important to know what material to use and what not to.
Please guide how to utilise this precious time, as i have only 3 months left. rolleyes



Hi Neha ji,

This is a general question.

I currently have 10 months of work experience as a technical writer. I would like to continue this for another 1 and half years. When I attain 2 years of work exp, i would like to do MBA. Can you please suggest me good mba colleges(India+Abroad) which offers MBA.

What would be the average fee?

What should be the average GMAT score?

Thanks in advance. 😃 (I already mailed you, but still posting here)


I am Chetan and need some guidance before i begin this new journey.

Here is my profile in brief:

I have yet to start on my GMAT prep but am really ambitious about my MBA.

1)10th - CBSE 67% in 2001

2)12th - CBSE 74% in 2005 (gap year of 2 yrs)

3)B.tech ( IT ) from PTU 2005 - 2009-- 75%

4)M.S. ( Software systems) Work integrated learning -- BITS , Pilani --- 8.7 GCPA

Have 3 yrs + work ex (IT) -- currently working in IBM as on Unix Administration.

Have strong leadership extra curriculars -- worked with AIESEC India and BSG ( during college) and have been a top rater at work with some awards to showcase.

Currently working with an NGO in Bangalore.

a)Can you guide me how much should i be aiming at to get into ISB ( if in INdia) or OXFORD/ NYU etc.

b) Is my profile strong enough for good B schools?

c) Can you give me a list of must have books for the prep and the time i should devote to get a 700+ ( Maths is a bit rustic as of now / Verbal is so -so but i can drastically pull up both)
