Let me hit you with some facts. The mean total GMAT score in the U.S. in 2012-2013 was 532. The mean GMAT score of the top 50 MBA programs in the U.S. is about 669. People who achieved a GMAT score of more than 700 spent 102 hours studying on average. Only 23% of GMAT test-takers say that they prepared more than 100 hours.*


Clearly, taking GMAT preparation seriously is the exception and not the rule. If you don’t, your score may suffer; if you do, you have a better chance of beating the average. Now that I’ve set your expectations, here are some suggestions on how to kick off your GMAT prep.
