Depends what you want to do long term.

Good question, but hard to know other than that it will be in finance. Like not in investment management either.

Can't hurt. But that time could also be spent on an MBA or some other post grad also.

Already have an MSc, not sure if I want to spend the time and money on an MBA at this point.

Any preferred GMAT study programs?

Any benefit to taking the GRE instead? Looking at entrance into a top part time program, so I'm not really that worried (I think they really just want your money at that point), but I still want to make sure everything works out.

Normally, I would recommend Manhattan. Unlike most of the other study programs, it pretty much focuses on hard questions so it's best if you are aiming for a high score.

I wouldn't do the GRE, while adcom are used to seeing it, employers care to some extent about your GMAT score (especially if you go to a school that has grade non-disclosure) and are generally less familiar with the GRE.

I just grabbed a dozen of books from the library - Princeton Review, etc.  It worked for me.

i liked knewton, they have a money back option if you don't score 50 points higher after using it. Im also a visual learner so it worked better for me.

I did Manhattan, really liked it. I did some basic studying from their books before starting the actual course and scored low-600 something on the first practice. By 3/4 of the way through the course I was able to break 700, and on the actual exam I ended up with a 770.

Never ended up going to B-school, left finance to work in Tech instead.
