Gears of War for the GMAT [#permalink] New post 27 Apr 2007, 10:40
Which edible weapons work best for this battle?
I am thinking of taking Gatorade, a banana, an apple and a chocolate with me. No water becauseI think Gatorade will cover me.
My plan is to have a sip or 2 of Gatorade and a banana after the AWA and before the Quant.
Then come back for a few sips more and a few bites from the apple and a little chocolate before the Verbal begins. I risk bloating myself in break 2.
I've heard apples are much stronger than coffee.... and so better to take them along for a nitro boost?

Any recommendations

Whatever it is you pick, make sure you practice with the same food/drink at least a couple of times.

I thought you're talking about the GMAT version of Gears of War for XBOX :roll:

Anyway, the fructose in apples is quickly digested thus giving you a temporary surge of energy and alertness. After that, usually 5-10 minutes, you'll be pooped.

If I were you I'll eat some fish or chicken nuggets. That's a light protein without any energy side effects.

I took the test in the afternoon (1.30pm)
Had a nice brunch around 11.30am (mixed fruits juice, water and a sandwich)

During breaks I took water, bananas (and nicotine) during breaks.

No coffee, no Red Bull, no chocolate.

But I agree with kidderek, "practice" this aspect of the exam as well. What worked for me will not necessarily work for you.
