Unformatted text preview: For more material and information, please visit Tai Lieu Du Hoc at www.tailieuduhoc.org GMAT Study Strategy Revised 4/25/05 Authors: Daveformba, Ursula, GMAT Club, Stephen Bolton, Erin I’ve searched all over the internet and read all the major books on preparing for the GMAT. The main thing that current GMAT prep books do well is to help identify what you’ll face on the test. What they don’t do well is to help you to know how to actually study each type of question and how to apply the strategies effectively. I’ve struggled to try and figure out how take a more active posture in studying such that information is not only retained, but efficiency improved. I’m tired of hearing, “just do a lot of problems.” That’s not useful. That was what people were telling me. One person, who attained a 740 on the GMAT at 46 years of age, the first time she took the test, stated how important it was to stay active and not be passive while studying. The point of this whole guide is on how to become an active learner for the GMAT and avoid being passive. (Read her Story here) As I was studying, I realized that I had to lay down some very specific strategies for myself to become more active in my learning process. This was because of a GMAT practice test I took where I got a 600. I had studied the Quant quite a bit, but not the verbal. For verbal, I went mostly off of what sounded right to me. I needed…. I wanted to come up with a way to approach the rest of my studying more effectively because there seemed to be too much memorization or gut reliance going on in my test taking skills. I knew that just going by what sounded right wasn’t the best way approach the real GMAT. This guide was created as a result of brutally asking myself specifics on how I could and would improve in each area of the GMAT. How does one move from, “just do a lot of problems” or “study hard” to “studying effectively” and most importantly…. Getting results? As this is a guide that is being refined and added to, I hope you’ll join me in letting me know what you feel needs to be re-worked or further explained by you or me to improve it. This will be of great benefit to you and me as well as others that might need this in the near future. Over time, I’ve received permission from several authors and teachers that have provided great strategy guidelines and have inserted them into this document. I’m not sure how you have discovered this GMAT study guide as I have not advertised it anywhere. In any case, I say good for you because it shows that you’re doing your homework. Hopefully, you weren’t just looking for the easy way out? Trust me, no matter how much you look, you won’t find a study guide better than this on the internet. It’s not that I searched myself and judged this guide to be the best. Rather, anyone who’s creating anything that’s even close is trying to sell you something. I’m not. There’s no extended version of this guide that I sell. This is For more material and information, please visit Tai Lieu Du Hoc at...
