Time and Motivation
How much time do you need? Pretty easy. First get your review materials and tests together and start working. Reassess after one week. Because there is only a limited amount of GMAT review products and tests (good ones at least), you'll know after one week how much more time you'll need to complete your review. On average: 3 to 6 months.
The best are: Princeton Review, Kaplan and ARCO (Peterson's). Barron's GMAT book has a particularly negative reputation. Depending on your personality, you may find one of the interactive software programs from Kaplan to be useful. You can get any of these review materials super cheap by clicking on the auctions in the eBay Marketplace.
By far, the best source for practice exam questions is The Official Guide for the GMAT Review (Educational Testing Services). Besides the official guide, the books mentioned above also have useful practice simulated exams. It is very important to take practice tests, check your scores then review your mistakes before trying another practice exam.
