5 Tips to Prepare for the GMAT
Here are 5 practical tips to help you prepare for the GMAT exam:
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 will continue to ask you questions within those limits.
Take your time on the first five 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.
Major GMAT sections are Quantitative and Verbal, with scores ranging from 200 to 800, in addition to two Analytical Writing Assessment essays, which are scored separately. The overall average score is 529; 67% of test takers will score between 400 and 600.
You'll want to find a local testing center and schedule your exam well in advance. This will give you plenty of time to reserve your seat and prepare for the exam. Certain metropolitan areas will book up several months in advance; therefore, you'll want to make sure you reserve your seat in time to meet your admission application deadlines. Find a GMAT testing center near you.
There is no substitute for preparation. Learning and practicing the material tested by 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.
