Default Re: About GMAT Preparation

Understanding the format, practicing sample questions, and reviewing one section at a time will help you achieve your best GMAT score, and arrive fully prepared on the day of your exam.

For GMAT exam preparation You need a strategic plan to organize yourself.

Some tips for GMAT preparation:

Consistency over intensity

Create a learning diary

3. Set an exponential GMAT prep timetable
It goes without saying that you need to leave enough time and plan effectively during GMAT preparation.

4. Train to use laminated drawing board during GMAT Prep
Many test centers offer only laminated drawing boards for calculations and sketches during the test. This can lead to irritation for those not accustomed to using an erasable overhead marker – especially left-handed people, who often tend to smear their notes.

5. Do not overestimate GMAT prep test results
The two prep tests that are available at the official GMAT website are cited by many sources as a good way to train in real test conditions.

6. Redo GMAT prep tests
One can get good GMAT prep tests from many sources and companies.

7. Practice educated guessing
A good method in dealing with GMAT questions (especially in the verbal section) to which you are not absolutely certain of the answer is ‘educated guessing’.

8. Focus on your weaknesses… but in a measured way
One should always know the GMAT test areas in which one is weakest. Nevertheless, a big mistake is to focus only on one weakness for too great a period of time, since GMAT knowledge can also be forgotten easily and quickly.

9. Try to overshoot your target GMAT Score

Even if you don’t necessarily need a 700+ GMAT score for your MBA application – maybe only 500 or 600 – it is still wise to overshoot during preparation in order to more or less safely reach your required score.

10. Set time milestones during the GMAT test
One of the most common worst case scenarios during the GMAT test is the test taker running out of time towards the end.
