Tutor description

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

GMAT Study StrategyRevised 1/25/05Authors: Daveformba, Ursula, GMAT Club, Stephen Bolton, Erin Ive searched all over the internet and read all the major books on preparing for the GMAT.

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
