First, let me explain why I recommend taking a few months to study for your GMAT exam in Liebig, Texas. First of all, the GMAT format is different than the exams you’ll find at other colleges or universities. Each section is given a number of days. Therefore, you’ll spend a lot of time mastering the material and preparing for these tests. If you do it this way, your brain will begin to develop those skills that are needed in order to excel on the GMAT exams. Also, you’ll be able to spend more time preparing for each section and the end result will be that your test score will be higher than what you might get from studying on your own.
Second, let me give you some advice for people who’d like to take the GMAT exam online. First of all, don’t make the mistake of rushing through the book. Read every page thoroughly and practice plenty of scenarios, which will simulate real-life scenarios. This will really help you prepare for the real GMAT test. You’ll spend a lot less time trying to figure out the answers and you’ll instead be focusing your attention on solving the problems.
Don’t buy the myth that taking pre-employment GMAT pre-licensing tests will make you a better applicant. That’s a myth. In fact, employers will probably consider you too unskilled not to take the exam because they won’t know what you’ll be able to do with it afterwards. They want someone who can really analyze data and work with others, not someone who’s going to come in with rote memorized answers. So, don’t fall into that trap.
And finally, don’t think that taking the GMAT exam in Bulgaria is somehow less difficult than taking it in the United States or Canada. The exam is the same. What may make it easier for some students is having a friend or family member in attendance who has taken the exam and knows how to pace themselves during the duration of the exam.
When I was preparing for my GMAT exam in Zurich, Switzerland, I had a personal tutor. My tutor was a great resource and helped me tremendously in developing a study strategy that would help me maximize my exam scores. Unfortunately, he was not an American, which made some things a little easier. I also had the luxury of studying in my pajamas at home, which allowed me to literally take my time and really absorb information at a rapid pace. There are some people who believe that students should only practice while they’re taking the exam in their home country. I think this is a mistake and one that could easily backfire on students who try to rush through their studying.
My final GMAT score was a remarkable 495 out of a possible 1000. This means that I’ve passed the exam and I’m ready to start with my new life as a computer engineer. But I did something that very few people do when preparing for the GMAT exam in Zurich. I scheduled my study schedule so that I’d be able to spend time on the questions that were the most challenging for me. This worked out great, and I was actually surprised that I didn’t run into any problems taking the test!
I did experience a few problems, but nothing that couldn’t be overcome. If I hadn’t planned my study schedule that way, I might have run into problems with some of the tougher sections. However, I enjoyed the test very much, and now I’ll be applying for jobs in the United States shortly. It’s definitely a positive feeling knowing that I’ve done well, even if I didn’t get the perfect score!
