But I didn’t. So I found the answer on the GMAT preparation forums. Yes! There is an easy, affordable way to get ready for the GMAT test with less stress and anxiety. And it’s better than cramming for the test!
First, I enrolled in a full time GMAT prep course. That way I had a coach that I could ask questions to and he’d get back to me ASAP. It was a big advantage. But I still had to do all the practice tests and write my own practice test to really prepare for the GMAT. So that was my second step.
Step one of the “preparation” process was to take a look at my entire GMAT study list. Make a list of all the topics I wanted to cover and take notes on what I needed to study. I didn’t want to miss anything. That would be a major bummer. You don’t want to leave out one single section on the test.
Second, I reviewed the GMAT preparation modules I bought. These were great and I used them over again. However, some of the modules did not cover everything I needed to learn. I still left out a lot.
Third, I bought myself a full color GMAT worksheet. This helped me drill down into the topics I needed. Plus it showed me where I needed to focus my attention to get the most points. It is also a good idea to have a worksheet when you practice instead of a piece of paper. It makes life a lot easier.
Finally, I took a full-length GMAT practice test. I wrote on my notebook as I went. Then I saved it and followed along with my notes. It was a great way to see what I was missing and how I could prepare for it better. When I compared my notes with the GMAT review work sheet I was using it was very clear which areas I had done well and which areas I had failed.
Hopefully this information will help you prepare for your GMAT test. Make sure you set aside time to study for this test. And remember that preparation only works if you start studying. You don’t get perfect at anything in life right away.
I started studying about a year before the test. That was fine by me since I had lots of spare time. I didn’t even bother to study books since I had already taken all the GMAT prep classes. I would have been a fool not to have done that.
The key to succeeding at studying is to get started. Spend as much time reviewing the materials as you can. Then get started on the GMAT test.
Spend as much time as possible getting good grades. Spend as much time as you can making sure you don’t forget anything important. The GMAT is a big test, so it’s important to pay attention. Also, get into the habit of doing your best on the GMAT test day. You’ll be surprised at just how well you do when you are fresh and focused on the test.
I also did practice tests at home. This allowed me to get a feel for the types of questions that were likely to come on the exam. And I used to practice test questions from the GMAT Prep Test Guide. All in all, it was very effective for me to do my GMAT review using the resources I had available to me. The GMAT prep resources really helped me to do a great job preparing for the exam.
