    Dear Kevin,

    That video, packed with power tips, was amazing. Just to inform you, I have registered my test date with GMAC on 23rd May, 2015. I have a Magoosh premier membership. I seek your guidance for a study plan.

    Hello Kevin,

    I am in a siumular situation like Anirudh and have only 2 months for the preparation.

    Could you publish your tips for a 2 months prep time on the Magoosh blog, or in a GMAT Tuesday video ? That would be a great help !

    Thanks a lot in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Kathrin,

      Happy to help! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is my general recommendation for someone looking to study for 2 months. It obviously depends on your strengths and weaknesses and how much time you can study each week. For most students, though, I recommend using our 1-month study schedule.

      Click here for our One-Month Daily Study Plan

      Before diving into the study guide, make sure to read the beginning about how to use the study guide. We have other supplemental resources we recommend and explain how to approach your test prep.

      You’ll notice that the plan requires around 15 hours a week for one month, so if you have 5-10 hours a week to spend studying for two months, you shouldn’t have any trouble finishing the study plan. But you may have some extra time. If you are wondering how to spend your time, I recommend reading these articles. They will tell you how to improve your math and verbal skills outside of the study plan: I am Terrible at Verbalโ€”Help! and Help! I am Terrible at Math.

      I hope this helps! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy Studying!

      Hi Anirudh! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Happy to hear you signed up for Magoosh! ๐Ÿ˜€ We can definitely help with these types of questions. In the future, feel free to send us your questions to For now, I can tell you that you should choose a plan based on how much time you can study each day. If you can only study 1 hour a day then you should follow the 1 month plan. If you can study 4-5 hours a day, you should follow the 3 month plan.

      You should receive a message soon from us with even more detail about how to prepare for the GMAT in 2 months! ๐Ÿ˜€

      hHappy Studying!
