    i think you should concentrate mainly on your test prep first. While preparing for the verbal section you can improve your reading habits and even you can learn new words. This thing will benefit you in your GD/PI too. After exam you will have enough time for GD/PI prep......

    For GD practice, it is not necessary to join any coaching institute. You can make yourself up-to-date by reading newspapers, magazines and even internet is the best thing, then you can have GDs in your friend circle....

    But if you want to join any coaching institute for your GD/PI prep only then you can join it after your exam i.e. in Dec or Jan. They start their GD/PI classes mainly in Dec end or Jan first week....

    Hi srinivas as nipun has mentioned concentrate mainly on test prep right now...GD.PI preparation goes alongside automatically if you read newspaper daily..because normally in a GD you must speak and you must have material to speak..so newspaper will take care of that..rest after the exam you can concentrate solely on that..

    best of luck cheers

    I will like to differ to what nipun has said...Nipun some comapnies have GD as elimination round...so there GD becomes all the more important... but if u compare MBA Gd's and job GD's theres not much difference ..in both you have to speak and speak well...topic might be different in job gd...may be a technical one..which might not be there in MBA Gd..

    Best of Luck

    I thot that dominating a discussion is the best way to score well. But sum of my friends got rejected in the GD round itself when they tried o cut into others' points. They had a GD round for a job interview. Is it the same for b-schools?

    yes of course! you tell me..how can someone be a good manager and colleague if they keep interrupting others' points? You need to understand that others have some great points too.
    The key to doing well in a GD is to put your points across...and also listen to others at the same time...not interrupt them. You need to build a connection with others' points and bring the discussion to a consensus. The more links you make, the more you can lead the GD..and that's EXACTLY what those guys are looking for!
    Honestly, before starting a GD I hardly have 3-4 points of mine, throughout the GD I build upon others' points (not rephrase them, but extend them into new horizons)..and at the end, I've consistently come out on top.
    Two positives in this, you do well yourself, AND get brownie points for helping out your friends by supporting their points. That way you make instant friends, and no1 interrupts you! ....think about it

    One has to keep in mind that it is similar to a corporate discussion where you will like to listen to all your colleagues before coming to a discussion...in a 15 min GD try to speak for 3 times and i mean proper 3 times in which u make sense and get heard and you are sure to get a good impression

    you can pratice picking up random arguments and discuss among friends. I thought everyone in college/hostels do it (they even have a 'name' for it :P ) we do it all the time. take up topics that range from politics, religion, love, current affairs, disputable topics, controversial, general (on which ANYONE and EVERYONE has something to say..those which are highly likely to become fish markets inducers) and start discussing.
    Collect some good points from your friends, make some of your own.

    And not to worry, once you're done with your MBA exams, and get calls, you'll have plenty of time to join some GD classes.

    oh cmon...ppl who are taking the CAT aren't the only ones who "discuss" stuff..dun you have heated discussions with your frndz on random topics? timepass kaise karte ho? like the latest IPL match, is IPL worth it? reviews for Nano?, future of the economy, job market crisis, worth of an MBA in today's world, being 100% good at one thing or being 1% good at 100 things?....cmon..if I can think of such topics off-hand, you can too...just start TALKING!, that's what a GD is about (a little bit more formal, but relatively the same!)..if your friends dont, then you have to take the initiative...
    Good Luck!

    Post How to do well in the Group Discussion

    Hi gourav ,i read your above comment... i want to ask ,why does a GD always end up into a fish market,i do understand that everyone wants to present their views....is there a reason for it.....and if i'm trying to present a point and someone else cuts me in between...do i say "allow me to finsh my point"...or do i wait for him to finish his and then get back to my point...or start with a new point...thankyou
