Preparing for the GMAT Exam
Proper preparation is essential both to your performance on the GMAT exam and in the classroom.
The right kind of preparation will improve your chances of achieving competitive scores, and, according to many graduate management program alumni, will hone the skills that are essential to your success in the classroom.
You’ll Be Surprised at How Quickly Your Test Day Arrives
After you’ve decided to sit for the GMAT exam plan to register early enough to prepare for the exam and for your scores to be available in time to meet your schools’ application deadlines. It may be helpful to establish a timeline based on the application deadlines for your schools and work backward.
- Block out a six-month timeline to prepare for the GMAT exam, longer if you’ve been out in the work world for a while and may need to hone old test-taking skills. Undergraduate students ideally should prepare six months ahead of their scheduled testing date and take the exam 1-to-2 years prior to graduation.
- Take one or more practice tests early to establish a benchmark for your strengths and weaknesses, and to get a feel for the exam format.
- Master the topics on the exam by practicing sample questions and reviewing one section at a time.
