Well, GMAT isn’t as easy as it looks and can be rather time consuming if you don’t have the right resources at your disposal. I don’t want to harp on too much but to give you a quick overview, you have to find an appropriate testing site. The site should have free mock tests, practice tests, and real GMAT questions. It also needs to give you access to the GMAT tutors who will be willing to discuss your weak points with you and help you develop them.
Once you get the proper GMAT site, then you will need to login and take your first simulated test. This will allow you to become accustomed to all of the navigation and testing features. You may even feel some frustration as you struggle to find your way around the interface. But, don’t let that stop you! All of that will happen in just a few minutes.
After that, it is a whole new ball game. You will begin to take actual practice tests and focus on mastering the concepts that you studied. Keep in mind that there is actually a time limit on when you will be allowed to take a practice test. So, make sure to schedule yourself ahead of time so you can take as many tests as you feel comfortable with and master all the concepts before the test day rolls around.
There are some things to keep in mind when you take a simulated test. First of all, make sure you can clearly understand the text and the instructions before you click “pass”. Make sure that you are comfortable with the format of the test and don’t be afraid to ask a question if something is unclear to you. Some questions on the test may require logic or problem solving skills that you are unfamiliar with.
When you finally click “pass”, you will be given the results. At this point, it is a good idea to go over the answers and the reasoning behind them. Reviewing the test will give you a much better feel for what will be coming next on the exam. Don’t let the time fly by without spending the time to review. Also, spend the time to learn as much as you can about the different areas of the test you are being asked to answer. This will prepare you for when the real test comes.
Now that you have reviewed, dig up those GED practice tests from last year and take them. They will help you tremendously in answering the questions on the test. The more practice exams you take, the better prepared you will be. Just remember to take the test just like the actual exam.
There’s no way to predict how long the MBE will take. Depending on where you live and what time of the day you take the test, it could take you a few hours or a whole weekend. You need to know that the longer you wait, the longer it will take for your answers to appear on the test. So, if you are in a hurry, go ahead and take the test immediately. That way, you can start practicing before the test.
