GMAT stamina building [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2009, 08:06
Hi,

I begin to lose my concentration after about 45-55minutes in verbal section in the 75minute verbal sets I have been doing.
I am getting concerned about how to structure my practice given the limited number of cat tests i.e I can't just do a test/day so i have planned them out as 1-2/week (full length - 4hr tests).

How to structure my practice sessions? Should I be doing 1:15min of verbal and 1:!5 of math together?
Any advise will be highly appreciated.

how long have you been studying? it took me a while to get to the point were i could concentrate for that long, but it was about verbal or any particular topic. it was just sitting there to work through practice problems, review mistakes, etc. for me, it was a matter of time and discipline...and after a while, urgency as i got closer to the test date.

Practice! Practice! Practice!

After completing several timed exams you'll build enough stamina to complete the exam in a breeze.

This was my biggest problem. I took full exams for two weeks straight. It definitely helped my stamina, but I think it burned me out a little too.

I don't know how long you have until your test, but reading in general will probably help you out. I hadn't read a book for quite some time before I took the GMAT.
