How does one stay focused for long periods of time, 1 hr, 2-4. The good study posts say study for 4 hrs a day, I find that if I sit down for a three hour study only .5 hrs gets dedicated to studying!?! How does one instill discipline and self-confidence without caffeine. Thanks
Make sure your study environment is conducive to good studying.
If you're studying on the computer - make sure you remove all chat windows, etc. Turn off your cell phone if you need to. Remove all distractions.
When you attempt each question, pretend you are actually sitting in the testing center and staring at the real GMAT test question. If you psychologically create this urgency in your head, you'll treat the study session more seriously and get more done.
Remember, the study process IS like a marathon, so you need to prepare psychologically for this long journey.
