GMAT Tips: Advice on Taking the GMAT


1. Cram Intelligently!

Signing up for a preparation course isn't mandatory, but is widely recommended, as it is an excellent way to motivate you to study. However, be careful because if you need this kind of external motivation to prepare your MBA application, it's a bad sign. What are you going to do for the essays? You can find the vast majority of advance that one would get in this type of place in the numerous very good books on the subject. Finally, don't forget that the time you spend going to these courses, you could be using to peacefully study at home (as long as your neighbors aren't particularly nosy). You can guess that I myself did not  take courses. Several people I know got very good scores (over 700) without going to a test preparation center. I encourage you, however, to go take a preliminary test, free most of the time, at one of these organizations. That will allow you to get oriented and then you can choose, knowing all the facts first.

2. Take the test as early as possible.

Afterwards, you will be busy with other things: essays, letters of recommendation, then finances and moving. However, these tests are valid for a limited time. So you have to plan your period of test preparation wisely. Your preparation period should immediately precede taking the tests. You will be astonished by your capacity to quickly forget grammar rules, logic, and math learned for the test. Good GMAT (and TOEFL) scores will motivate you to continue the admission process.

3. Be careful with the math section

Applicants endowed with non-scientific backgrounds and "allergic" to numbers will have to concentrate all their efforts on this section of the test. For that, there's no miracle solution. However, you will quickly notice that certain questions frequently reoccur on the GMAT. The number of math rules one has to know is relatively limited. Focus on these and forget the rest from your previous math class. To optimize your preparation time, concentrate on "GMAT math". It is not impossible for people with a non-scientific education to attain scores in the 700 range.
