Are you preparing for your GMAT while working from home?
Well, this is a great time to study for the GMAT with somewhat flexibility in working hours.
Here are the 10 tips that I found useful while preparing for my GMAT exam. Hope you find the same.
Maintain an error log: This helps you to save time & brush up on your weak concepts.
Give as many tests as possible: Give all the tests available to you. Be it from your coaching centre or other free/paid tests available on the web. Be sure to not waste all of the six official GMAT tests at one go.
Read & Read & Read: I found this to be helpful for the RC questions in the Verbal section. I found that reading even during the free time or reading just about anything helps you increase your speed & the ability to grasp the meaning of the RC in a short amount of time.
Research & Shortlist Schools: I find a lot of my students commit this mistake of focusing just on GMAT while making the decision to shortlist the schools on a later date. While this is okay if you have time in hand, but I would rather advise on shortlisting the schools while you prepare the GMAT. For one thing, this would help you to target a score more suitable for the school that you intend to target.
Enjoy your prep: I found the entire experience to be such fun. Preparing the GMAT, discussing on forums like GMATClub & overall improving my verbal & quant abilities. Once you start enjoying it, you start spending more time with it & eventually your scores start improving.
