achieve a top score on the GMAT, students should follow a three-step plan
1. Learn the concepts that are on the test.
2. Learn the tips, traps and strategies of the test writers
3. Learn to work faster and smarter by taking timed practice tests
We address Steps 1 and 2 in our companion publication, Guerrilla
Tactics for the GMAT: Secrets and Strategies the Test Writers Dont
Want You to Know (ISBN: 978-1-933819-34-1). From our experience,
no one should take the GMAT without mastering these techniques, which
can make the difference between a great score and a mediocre one.
1,001 Questions and Answers for the GMAT (ISBN 978-1-933819-40-5)
addresses Step 3, which is to build your confidence, speed and test-taking
strategies by taking mock exams under actual testing conditions. From
our experience, working with sample questions isnt enough; you need
to attack the questions exactly as they are presented in the GMAT. By
design, we have organized 1,001 GMAT questions in the identical format
you will see on the exam:
The Verbal Sections present 41 multiple choice questions in one
75-minute segment, including:
Critical Reading questions
Critical Reasoning questions
Sentence Correction questions
The Quantitative Sections present 37 questions in one 75-minute
Mathematical word problems
Data Sufficiency questions
Data Interpretation questions
Lets be honest; the content of the GMAT isnt particularly
difficult. With unlimited time, many students could attain a top score
on the exam. The biggest challenge is working at a fast enough pace to:
1. answer as many easy questions as possible
2. formulate an intelligent strategy for guessing
From our experience, there is no way to accomplish these goals without
working through hundreds of practice questions under actual testing conditions.
Ultimately, it isnt only a matter of timing; its developing
a plan to maximize your own strengths on each section of the exam.
And thats the aspect of test preparation that few experts
acknowledge; one size does NOT fit all. No two students have the same
strengths and weaknesses, which means that no two preparation plans will
be the same. Ultimately, its up to YOU to identify the areas in
which you need work, and to focus your time accordingly. The 1,001 questions
and answers in this publication are a great start.
Use the information in whatever way makes sense to YOU. If you want to
assess the level of difficulty of the math questions, use the Quantitative
sections as a general review of the math topics on the GMAT. Check out
the typical vocabulary words that show up in the reading passages and
the sentence completion questions. Note the grammar and word choice errors
that are tested over and over again on the exam. Dont stop until
you have them down cold.
Then, before the day of the test, complete several sections under timed
conditions. Give yourself a few minutes at the end of each section; on
the actual GMAT, you will need this time to transfer your answers to your
grid. Make sure that you can work hard enough, smart enough and fast enough
to earn the score you desire.
