Announcing GMAT FAQ

It’s been long since I declared about publishing GMAT FAQ -an easy Q&A list that covers most of the GMAT related questions. Creating ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page was in my mind since I started this blog way back in 2006.

I scribed the list & answers, it must have been 4-5 years. A lot has changed since then, & I’ll make sure the information I publish is latest & correct. I’d post one question at a time. Twice a week. Every Monday & Thursday.
I’ve created FAQ specific feed so that all frequently asked questions covered, come under one category.

resurrecting the gmat strategy blog

We separated all GMAT and MBA related posts from my personal blog and created new blog. This move was made keeping our viewers in mind. To make things simple, we will update this blog only when we’ve anything to add related GMAT & MBA. Although it would have been easier for me to manage a single blog for all fields and topics that interest me; it creates confusion among the readers.

This blog has a lot of promising projects pending. We’ll have a comprehensive list of all resources and links for GMAT preparation & MBA studies. Starting with a dedicated page for downloads, where I’d post must-have files/software as study resource. Also I’ll add GMAT FAQ page- a section with 50+ questions replied with concise answers. Although most of the content is written already, it’s matter of time I’d get time to publish it. Lot to come. stay tuned.
