The sooner you start studying for the GMAT® exam, the more prepared and confident you will be.  

Performing well on the GMAT exam really comes down to time and preparation. The more time you devote to studying and taking practice exams, the more comfortable you will be on exam day.

We recommend you begin studying six months to one year out to ensure you can review and practice all four sections of the GMAT exam: Verbal, Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning, and Analytical Writing Assessment.


Five Quick Study Tips to Get You Started

  1. Refresh yourself on the basics. The GMAT exam is a test of higher order reasoning, but you still must have a mastery of the fundamentals.
  2. Practice pacing, as the GMAT exam is timed and completion is important for a good score.
  3. Make it a habit to read all test directions carefully.
  4. Read each question slowly to determine exactly what is being asked. Then eliminate the wrong answers and select the best choice.
  5. Do not skip questions during practice exams, because you can’t during the real exam. Instead, if you get stuck, make your best guess and move on.
