There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Alien words not so "alien": e-GMAT provides some sage advice: "Generally, GMAT test takers are very wary of a new word or words in the answer choices. Their instinct is to eliminate an answer choice the moment they see alien words in any of the answer choices. But this certainly is not advisable."
660 to 730!: Vannbj made great strides between tests. Here is there story: "I'm excited and relieved that I finally crushed this test and made it to the 700 club! I've come to realize that I'm not naturally good at many things and that it often takes me several attempts at a thing in order to master it."
Which MBA students are most responsive to incoming candidates?: A social experiment from GMAT Club user tepicnightwithgmat: "I think the most important part of the MBA program are the people, so I decided to reach out to people of the schools I am looking at and see how responsive they are. I reached out only to people I did not know, did not count talking to any of my friends at the respective MBA programs in this study."
Writing your own recommendation letter: From GMAT Club member syog: "I approached my recommenders today and they were happy to recommend me. But contrary to my expectations, they asked me to write it (the recommendation letter) and then they would sign it. Now I am wondering, what is the drawback of this approach? "
Older students' experiences in full time 2 year programs: From GMAT Club member Ward2012: "I'm more interested in the actual experience that older students in two-year programs had. For those who are/were "older" in regular full-time programs, I'd like to hear about what your experience was like being with mid to late 20 year olds? Did you start to feel like the "old person" in class or when doing activities? Did you ever wish you were with more people your own age?"
