Preparation tips for GMAT

1. Consistency over intensity

You should have quick calculations in the quant section. To improve this skill it is better to have shorter, daily training sessions rather than cramming during the weekend.

2. Create a learning diary

The numbers of concepts that are asked in GMAT questions are finite.
Therefore a good method to improve and reduce your ‘white areas’ is to keep a learning diary.

This means one should write down every unknown prep question (or also questions that took you too long to answer) and try to understand the correct answer and concept behind them.

3. Set an exponential GMAT prep timetable

It goes without saying that you need to leave enough time and plan effectively during GMAT preparation. It might be wise to choose a test date at the end of a period of holiday.

4. Train to use laminated drawing board during GMAT Prep

Many test centers offer only laminated drawing boards for calculations and sketches during the test.

You should practice this during your preparation phase in order to avoid as many surprises on test day as possible.

5. Do not overestimate GMAT prep test results

The two prep tests that are available at the official GMAT website are cited by many sources as a good way to train in real test conditions.

6. Redo GMAT prep tests

One can get good GMAT prep tests from many sources and companies.

The good thing about prep tests used by the better of these companies is that most of them use an adaptive question algorithm

7. Practice educated guessing

A good method in dealing with GMAT questions (especially in the verbal section) to which you are not absolutely certain of the answer is ‘educated guessing’.

8. Focus on your weaknesses… but in a measured way

9. Try to overshoot your target GMAT Score

10. Set time milestones during the GMAT test
