fighting burnout - GMAT strategy second time around [#permalink]
29 Jun 2005, 07:24
all those who've experienced burnout,
ive read a lot of posts about people buring themselves in GMAT prep, getting completely burned out, and wanting nothing to do with studying for months.
i had a similiar experience last summer- took a prep course, studied everything (OG, PR, Kap, etc). i was actually scoring pretty well (670, 690). PRoblem was, i got so tied up in it that come test time, i got nervous, couldnt think straight, and cancelled my scores. i was so overcome by the experience that i started questioning b-school in general. kind of ridiculous to let a test affect you in such a way, but anyway...
i am now back and ready to study again. my real question is to those who have been in similiar situations- how did you change your strategy the second time around? i feel knowledgable about the concepts, just have to get back into the swing of it all...
in particular, could anyone comment on what content, timeframes, and routines worked best for you the second time around to keep from getting burnt out again?
