I did not start taking the GMAT until the summer of my senior year at college, but I had been practicing and studying for some time prior to taking the GMAT. The first month or so of my preparation was spent in studying GMAT preparation methods and strategies. I took a look at some of the typical format for studying for the GMAT. I also read about some typical practice tests. Then I spent about two months practicing my technique of doing my pre-prepared essay questions during every section of each section of the exam.
I also made sure to do my homework during the months of October and November, which I discussed with my friends and family members, but I concentrated on answering the essay questions and getting the class notes on a daily basis. I practiced my GMAT study methods by doing my homework and answering the questions whenever I had free time. I took the GMAT test in Paris in December, but I let my family members and friends have the results. They were shocked that I could actually take the test in Paris and study there! It is so easy to get so consumed with all of our lives and responsibilities that we forget to focus on the big picture and how to succeed in life.
My best advice to you if you have the time and energy to devote to your GMAT study group is to schedule some time each day for a half an hour or less to sit down and really think about your problem-solving strategies, your prior preparation, and the new skills you will be learning by taking the GMAT. I also encourage you to bring along with you some friends who are also preparing to take the GMAT and this can really help because it will help you to get to know each other better and maybe even discuss some strategies with them. So make the most out of your time, and enjoy it!
When you get ready to start studying for the GMAT, you need to know exactly what materials you need to study. The GMAT registration form must be completed and signed before anyone can start studying. There are multiple websites where you can register for the GMAT and once you have registered you will receive your login information, a password and an access code. These codes will allow you to log into the website and start reviewing.
You also need to familiarize yourself with the GMAT test dates. As a refresher, the official GMAT test dates are published on the GMAT Test Page. They are also posted on the General Education Board’s (GEB) official website. You should know that the GMAT is administered four times per year and it is highly likely that test dates will be changed at these times as well.
If you have questions about the test schedule, you can find answers to these questions on the General Education Board’s website or from the local testing center. In many cases you will have to reschedule if you change your test dates. The GMAT is a demanding test that lasts a long time so if you are pressed for time, do not procrastinate. The GMAT is very hard and it will only take a little extra time to prepare for it.
Be sure to visit the class site at least one time during the course of the semester. That way you will be able to see if your instructor is present. In general, teachers are more than willing to be there if their class is open because they want their students to take the test. The same goes for the other instructors in your section. The more instructors you have in your section the better the quality of your class will be.
