I have planned on studying for this exam on and off throughout the year, so I know I will need to get a grasp on each topic. The best way to get a grasp on all of the topics is to read and study the official test study guides that come with your GMA. I have a copy of the GMAT 2100 Test Study Guide that I purchased. I keep it in my test book in the event that I forget to study for a section or two. I’m confident that my guide will help me pass all of my tests and save me tons of money on classroom rentals.
When you are planning your study schedule, make sure you plan your study sessions around times when you feel most mentally prepared. If you are nervous about studying, then perhaps you should study during a different time of day or night. If you are not in the best mood, then perhaps you should take a break and relax for a few minutes before you begin. These are just a few ways to help you get ready for your GMA date.
When you sit down to do your GMAT test, get comfortable and start thinking about the types of questions that you are going to face. The trick is to not think too much about what you are going to answer, but rather, let your mind wander and picture in your mind what questions will pop into your head as you get started. Do not worry if your mind wanders or stops working right away. Once your mind starts to work it will come back to your question and give you the answer you need.
Have a plan of study at least a month before you are set to take the GMAT test. You should have all of your materials handy including practice tests. Review all of your materials and start to plan out how you will study. Figure out when you will be taking the test and what specific areas of the test you are going to focus on. This will ensure that you do not rush through the material and will allow you to get the most out of your time.
Be positive when answering the test questions. If a particular answer will lead you to another part of the test, choose to accept that answer and move on. Do not drag yourself across topics or try to answer every question with precision. Write down the answers as you look them up on the sheet and mark them as incorrect. Once you have marked the wrong answer, revise your answer and write it down again.
When you sit down for the test, be relaxed and don’t be stressed out. Relax and enjoy the process of answering the questions. Remembering to do your homework will also help you be more prepared. When you sit down for the actual exam, maintain eye contact with the examiner and pay close attention. The reason is that test anxiety will affect your score.
When you get ready to take the GMAT test, you need to have a positive attitude. There is no way that you will pass if you have a negative attitude. Stay focused and calm on your drive to achieve your goal. There are many resources that will help you study and prepare for this test.
