11 Prep Tips to Score GMAT 750

GMAT 750 Prep Tips1) DO NOT go by how much time you spent studying.  The way to judge if you are ready or not is by how much you understand the subjects. This is very important!

2) DO NOT rush or worry about time so much when you first begin.  I focused too much on pace at the beginning and wasted a lot of time having to go back to grasp the subjects. You will need to get this down, but at first it is not the most important thing.

3) DO NOT just look at the correct answer when you get a question wrong.  Make sure you understand why your answer was wrong and why the correct answer is correct. I spent more time reviewing then practice tests than I did taking them.  (And yes they are long).

4) DO NOT let the Kaplan CAT score scare you. I got a little down, but do not.

5) DO take breaks.  Stay on track, but give your mind periods of rest.

6) DO track your progress and timing.   I used the GMAT Club iPad app because it was easy to use and consolidated.  Really all you need is a timer and a notebook to keep track of time per questions and percentage of questions correct in each category.

7) DO identify your weaknesses and focus on them. Do not abandon everything else, but your weaknesses will stick out on the exam.

8) DO save some questions in the OGs until after you have reviewed all topics unless you are still really not comprehending the material (in which case you can find more questions). Once you have identified your weaknesses, you are going to want to have questions to go back and focus on.

9) DO take several practice CATs. This will not only help you get an idea of where you stand, but it will help you become familiar with how the questions will come when you take the test.

10) DO get pace down during the CATs. Not finishing the test will kill you score, and rushing at the end is not fun.

11) DO dedicate yourself.  It may seem like I did not study for long, but I spent countless hours reviewing and was extremely dedicated.  I passed up 2 Vegas trips and so much more to make sure I spent the time needed to get the score I wanted.

"I have not reviewed many books for MBA Admission consulting companies but doing it now to give all applicants a brief idea on what the book covers. The book includes 31 top MBA programs - almost all the top schools you have heard or considering for your MBA application. Each chapter is categorized by US States where there is at least one top MBA program. So you have California and Massachusetts with the most number of MBA programs and several states with one top program (Washington, Minnesota, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Virginia, and Maryland) and other states with two to three MBA programs. The book focuses on four aspects of an MBA program - curriculum, cost, class profile and post-MBA salary. For me, the breakdown of the cost and post-MBA industry was useful to make my decision on selecting the top 5 programs for 2017-18. It is a fascinating read in an industry where consultants overprice for their expertise. I recently bought a 30-page guide for $49. Compared to the obvious observation in that book, the 300+ page, MBA in US - the Ultimate guide is a goldmine of information and analysis." - Verified Purchase (21st June 2017)

"I bought the ultimate guide after a friend recommended it for me. The guide covers a lot of ground on the history of each prominent US states and goes into the reasons why a certain industry emerged from each state. In addition to the analysis of the economy, trends and expected changes in the next 5 years, the book features top MBA programs in each state with an extensive study of its curriculum. Ultimate guide is an essential reference book for MBA Applicants if they want to shortlist MBA programs based on value and cost, and not just ranking. " - Verified Purchase (14th June 2017)

"Should be a required reading before applying for an MBA. School events and MBA Tours are PR events disguised as a Q&A. On the contrary, the book is an unbiased analysis of each Top MBA program in the US supported by a large dataset and historical context on each industry. The guide builds a case for indstries that are likely to emerge as favourite for MBA graduates. Thorough and a valuable book." - Verified Purchase (15th June 2017)

"What I liked: The breadth of the information. Some of my favorite nonfiction books have taken the same approach as the ultimate guide have - cover background information in-depth. In the book, the author uses parallel threads to demonstrate the history of the state and the rise of industries. Will make you think how schools thrive based on the policy set by the state. California's obsession with Technology has revolutionized how we do Business and changed post-MBA trends. Many MBA applicants will be consulting or doing marketing for a Technology company. That is one key finding from the book. The latest development in AI, FinTech, and Automation is an additional context that I found valuable in the book.

Very informative. I would recommend that you read the book at least once in chronological order before using Table of Contents." - Verified Purchase (2nd July 2017)
