New Delhi, India (PressExposure) July 10, 2009 -- The month of June-July-August-September is the time when most GMAT takers take their test. MBAchase has interviewed successful students and have done extensive research on the web for top tips in order to get highest score in the GMAT exam. After that, MBAchase expert team went through tons of discussion sessions to bring the following top 10 tips for you.
1. Start early - The time required to prepare for exam depends on individual to individual. Nevertheless, a solid 2-3 months, in general, is good enough to study and practice enough to score well on GMAT.
2. Set early deadline goal - If your exam is in the end of August, set an internal goal of end of July as being the exam date for you. This strategy seems simple and of common sense, but many people fail to follow it. Group of people who have followed this technique have actually been benefited by having proper revision time and having time to handle surprises (like escalation at work, getting sick, attending wedding of a friend, etc.).
3. Study Material - There are standard practice test material available in the market: review those, talk to your friends, get an expert's advice and then select 1-2 books as material to prepare. The most important reference book that we recommend is âThe Official Guide (OG)â and MBAchase Math/Verbal workbooks as supplement.
4. Plan, prepare and proceed - Someone has rightly said that, ârecipe for success is - plan your work and work your plan". Make a reasonable plan and stick to it. Clear out other commitments and put GMAT preparation as the top priority for those 2-3 months in which you are preparing for the exam.
5. Participate in discussion forums - Participation in discussion forums will help you enjoy the process of preparation by asking and answering questions. It also helps you in getting awareness on different aspects of GMAT exam that you may otherwise miss. Remember forum is a place where multiple brains are sharing information, and your brain is just one of them. Learn from others, and share your learning while you do so.
6. Self study or private tutoring - The answer to this question depends on individual study style. However, if you have been out of touch with basic English and/or Maths for sometime, it may make sense to go in for at least some introductory courses. However, it is important to discipline yourself, make a routine with realistic goals and do serious preparation.
7. Balance your time devotion -Time should be devoted in accordance with the section that you are weak at. For Engineering students, quant section may be easy to score but verbal may be daunting. It would be wise (and of course) common sense that you devote more time on verbal without ignoring quants completely.
8. Practice, practice and practice - Take as many GMAT tests as possible. MBAchase recommends taking at least 6 CAT tests and may be another five non-CAT tests. Taking CAT tests will help you prepare the exam in GMAT simulation mode. You will find good set of Non-adaptive test set on mbachase.com to get ready for CAT version of the test.
9. Take time to analyze - Practice as much as possible, but also take proper time to analyze the result. Learn from each and every mistake of yours and never repeat it again. MBAchase team recommends that you keep some kind of an error log and review it on periodic basis.
10. Master the fundamentals - Last but not the least, master the basics. While preparing for GMAT, it is important that you have clarity on fundamentals. Remember, GMAT is a standardized exam to test your fundamentals in verbal and quant. MBAchase team strongly believes that low proficiency in English will not necessarily preclude you from cracking the GMAT verbal. Similarly, the fact that you may be from a non-mathematical background will not prevent you from getting a perfect score in the quant part. Follow the above tips and we are confident that you will get an excellent score in GMAT.
MBAChase will also be publishing a next set of blog on detailed preparation plan for verbal and quant.
