GMAT : basic problem [#permalink] New post 18 Mar 2005, 20:58
Many of us face a problem during GMAT. you have done enough practice, you have solid fandamentals , you have worked hard and you feel you are well prepared but still you blow yourself when you see your disappointing score. the problem is your tired mind. you have to read each questions 2ce or thrice when you are half way in verbal section. your comphrehension drops dangerously low , you stand nowhere. many a times you think that you should cancle the score ...and so on...

Can anyone please suggest how to overcome this? i had faced it twice.

I have attempted GMAT once and faced exactly the same problem. :( . Since then I have been looking for ways to counter this problem. A couple of things that could really help in this situation:
1. Before giving the GMAT ensure that you have taken sufficient full length tests with exactly the same time breaks. This practice should habituate you with the real GMAT experience of 4Hrs at a stretch.
2. Use the 5 min breaks to relax, flex out, breath deeply, press your eyes gently to release the strain and splash some cold refreshing water on your face.
3. Meditiate for atleast 10 mins everyday to build your focus and concentration.(This really helps)

Good luck.

thanks for yout tips paddy. i will practice mediatation.
if someone has such problem , he/she must work on at least 15 full length test. apart from good knowledge , your endurance seems euqlly important factor.
