While many will be celebrating the official arrival of summer this weekend, MBA applicants are aware of yet another season that’s ramping up: GMAT preparation season. We’ve asked experts on the Economist GMAT Tutor team for tips to help you do your best. Here’s what they had to say:
- Get a baseline. Before you do anything else, take a practice test to learn what your baseline score is. Why? Because you need to arm yourself with a full assessment of exactly how far you have to go to become a competitive candidate at your school of choice. (Economist GMAT Tutor offers a free practice test—take advantage of it!)
- Know thyself. Connect with an expert about tackling your specific weaknesses. It takes more than mere repetition to ace a tough subject. An expert tutor can help you develop a plan to strengthen the areas you’re struggling to master. If you want to try this strategy out, the Economist GMAT Tutor offers a 7-day trial that includes a free session with one of their tutors.
- RELAX! No really, relax. Anxiety will have a big effect on your test-day performance, so learn how to use that stress to your advantage (yes, this truly is possible). Learning what you need to know to conquer the GMAT is completely doable.
There’s no downside to taking a free test-drive of the Economist GMAT Tutor program, so why not give it a shot? On test day you’ll be glad you did everything in your power to achieve your highest possible score.
