Best way to study GMAT prep [#permalink] New post 09 Aug 2011, 21:36
So I took my first gmat prep today and I was hoping to get some information as to how I should go about reviewing the material. Since there are no answer explanations from GMAC, where is the best place to look? Are there any ways to filter the questions and find them on this forum? I see that there are stickies with the GMAT prep questions but I am curious as to how some of the veteren gmat studiers went over and reviewed their tests?

Thanks in advance! :-D

Well, the GMAT Prep test primarily reflects a candidates preparedness for the test. Towards the early stages of preparation, GMAT prep indicates the exact level of a test takers ability.

Therefore, instead of resorting to searching for solutions to question asked in the GMAT Prep, you must use it to zero in on your weakness.

If the majority of your mistakes in verbal were from sentence correction, then sentence correction is your weakest area. If the majority of the mistakes were from critical reasoning, then critical reasoning is your weakest area. I hope you're getting the point.

Don't worry about the GMAT Prep score right now :) It only reflects your present ability and is in no way an indicator of what you're likely to score in the actual GMAT (unless you plan to take it within the next two days :-D )

Also, the GMAT prep is just a tool to get to know the whole interface and stuff.

Don't be too stressed about this. Just use the test to spot your weaknesses and then work towards plugging them gaps ;)
