Tactics for the GMAT*:
1,001 Questions & Answers
For students who lack the time, money, and inclination to read an 800-page guide or complete an expensive test preparation class, we offer a shorter, cheaper, and more direct approach to GMAT preparation.
Guerrilla Tactics for the GMAT: Secrets and Strategies the Test Writers Dont Want You to Know (ISBN 9781933819341) provides the most important tips and strategies that you will need to know to get a top score; it also gives practical advice to help you conquer the typical traps and pitfalls that the test takers will inevitably throw your way.
At this point, you may be wondering if you really need our publication. Throughout your life, your firends and professors have told you that the only secret to acing the GMAT is being a whiz in the classroom; if you can read fast and handle complex math topics, you will do OK. From our experience, they were only half right. In actuality, getting a top score on the GMAT hinges on TWO factors:
the material that the exam is designed to test b. Knowing the tricks of
the test writers, who tend to ask the same types of questions,
with the same types of traps and pitfalls, the same way
on every exam
Thankfully, you can conquer this aspect of the test far easier - and faster - than you learned basic grammer and math. With our guide, you will learn the the tricks of the test writers (and develop a plan to tackle them) in just a few days. From our perspective, it is an indispensable step in GMAT preparation.
That being said, we absolutely do NOT want to mislead you about your specific chances for success on the GMAT. No ethical author or publication can guarantee that a reader will get a perfect score if (s)he follows a particular strategy or approach. Your performance on the GMAT will depend, to a certain extent, on factors that are beyond our control, such as your:
to read and comprehend dense passages quickly and critically
Each student brings a unique set of skills and talents to the exam; as a result, GMAT questions that are hard for one student may be incredibly easy for another. This is why most one-size-fits-all approaches to GMAT preparation are inherently doomed to fail.
And thats why weve taken a different approach in Guerrilla Tactics for the GMAT, which every student can use to his/her advantage. Although we have compiled an impressive amount of information in our appendices (including a review of grammar and math), our goal is NOT simply to teach you grammar or math. Instead, we are going to teach you the test itself, including the tricks, traps and pitfalls that the GMAT writers use to confuse, distract and otherwise deflect your efforts to answer the questions correctly.
Our goal? To help you conquer the GMAT, whoever you are, whatever your background, however you choose to prepare for the exam. Like most battles, preparation and skills are only half the equation. The other half is knowing your target, warts and all, before you enter the battlefield.
How significant is this guide? Until now, we have NEVER endorsed a particular preparation strategy for the GMAT, because of the many flaws that each system entails, such as high cost, incorrect focus, and needless memorization. Over the years, we've watched too many well-meaning students take that road..... with disappointing results.
Instead, after careful deliberation, we have opted to publish our OWN strategic guide for students who want critical insight into the GMAT. From our experience, few students can achieve a top score without knowing - and mastering - the test writers' tricks, traps, and pitfalls. However you choose to prepare for the GMAT, our guide should be an integral part of your program.
