Here are 5 practical tips to help you prepare for the GMAT exam:
  1. The GMAT is a computer-adaptive test (CAT), which is very different from a paper-and-pencil exam. The CAT programming will zone in on your proficiency levels and continue to ask you questions within those limits.
  2. Take your time on the first 5 questions in each section. Since it's computer-adaptive, the program uses these first few questions to determine the level of difficulty that it thinks you can handle. Correct answers to more difficult questions earn you more points so don't be in a rush.
  3. Major GMAT sections are Quantitative and Verbal with scores ranging from 200 to 800, in addition to two Analytical Writing Assessment essays scored separately. The overall average score is 529 and 67% of test takers will score between 400 and 600.
  4. You want to find a local testing center and schedule your exam well in advance. This gives you plenty of time to reserve your seat and prepare for the exam. Many don't know that certain metropolitan areas will book up several months in advance. You want to make sure you reserve your seat in time to meet your application deadlines.
  5. There is no substitute for preparation. Learning and practicing the material tested within the GMAT will help you to achieve a higher score and settle nerves and anxiety. Using a study guide will allow you to work through the principles and take timed practice tests. Try alternating between studying and taking computer-adaptive practice tests, focusing specifically on your weakest areas to make efficient use of your study time.

6 Tips for Test Day

Understand the directions for each question type before you take the test. This will save you valuable time. Test-prep manuals and other tools help you with this.

Take your time with the questions at the beginning of each section. The questions at the beginning of a section affect your score more than those at the end. Once the computer determines your general ability level with these initial questions, you will be able to improve your score dramatically.

Be completely sure of each answer before proceeding. You cannot skip a difficult question and return to it later on the computerized test. Nor can you review responses to questions that you have already answered. If you are totally stumped, then eliminate as many answer choices as you can, select the best one, and move on.

Pace yourself. To finish both sections, you need to establish a pace that allows you to spend, on average, just under 2 minutes per item.

Be prepared to receive a mix of different question types within each section. The computer may select one of several question formats, depending on whether you answered the previous question correctly or incorrectly. So be ready.

Write well and write quickly. Because your essay is graded by computer, be sure to set up a logical structure and write with a clear and direct style. This is not the place to be funny or innovative.
