Hi guys,

For the most part I've been lurking around.. Did the GMAT in Feb and got a 670.. Didnt know of GC and after i did the test felt six to my stomach because I know I underperformed.. Didnt finish the quant..


I'm feeling completely fried from GMAT prep.. I work fulltime and have been working pretty long hours and then have been doing 2-3 hrs or so a day for the last month+..

Got a 740 on last MGMAT test i did.. and that actually pumped me up so I was feeling good for a few days.. Now I feel completely drained... Can't focus on doing questions - just feeling weary in general... Add to that I'm completely stressed out now about the test and am having trouble sleeping at night now.. Im stressed to the max..

Any advice? I realize I just need to relax and chill.. but with 3 weeks to go to test day I have to press on.. Need to get unfried for the final push..

Do something you enjoy: watch a movie/TV show/ play a game/visit friends etc. Tell yourself you are going to completely enjoy for the next two days. See the stress evaporating.

I've been feeling that way for a while now. I've decided to go on vacation and hopefully kick it back into high gear once I come back!

Thanks everyone for the advice!

I took a couple of days to destress and do lighter prep than normal..

Feeling much better now... Did a solid 3 hours yesterday.. Started using the Advanced Quant book from MGMAT - and I'm starting to get it.. 3 weeks to test day now..

Good job on taking it slow and putting in some solid hours. It seems like you are getting back on track!
