"I think no question is worth 2 or 2:30 minutes. If you are spending, more than 2 minutes on a question, you are digging your own graveyard."
Gmacvik

"Study OG diligently as if it is the Bible."
HongHu

"Play the GMAT like you would play chess - sacrifice a few pieces to win"
Londonluddite

"studying for a big test like the gmat, i found, is similar to lifting weights. when lifting if you do the same exercises every time you lift, your muscles will adapt and you will eventually plateau."
JonnyJersey

“Preparing for a 7XX GMAT is a bit like training to go into space; one must strive for optimum mental and physical condition levels to best complete the mission. A key component to getting that extra 5-10% on T-day is to minimize stress by staying healthy and alert.”
GMATT73

“Succeeding GMAT quant is not about knowing enough math techniques for solving problems, but rather - using as few math skills as possible to solve them.”
Hobbit

“it's just a matter of persevering!”
Kevincan


“Most common silly mistake is to spent too much time unnecessarily on some question and then making most of the other question wrong in the end. Fix some maximum limit for each question.”
Pravinkawadkar

“The #1 rule of approaching GMAT questions is QUALITY, not quantity”
U2Lover

“One mistake I recently made is not paying attention to what is being asked.”
haas_mba07

“Here are some common strategic errors you can make: I got that question right. I dont care if I guessed. I dont need to review the explanation or take a second look at it.”
Praetorian

“Eventhough, I improved my score, I knew I had to improve. I made a decision to score a 700. I was no longer going to be complacent with myself. So I started to make changes in every single aspect of my preparation.”
Positive soul

“Frustrating will not do a thing for you. If you really want to tame this beast, then sit down and study it until it is not mysteriously frustrating any more. “
HongHu

“I am probably the biggest proponent of the benefits of solving hard problems”
AkamaiBrah

“AWA does count, not only in the eyes of those who will be reviewing your application but in the in the overall manner in which you manage your energy.”
GMATT73



“If you see a problem that looks really hard and you know it is going to take a ton of time to work through it and even then you might not get it right, just skip it.”
johnnyx9

“your training involves two goals: 1) learning WHAT to study, and 2) studying that.”
Racer_x

“a key to getting a high score is probably working quickly and efficiently through very difficult questions”
Pelihu

“Today, I took the real exam. This is a score I never in my wildest dreams thought I could get.”
Rhyme

yeah in other words, GMAT favors more to those who are 90% sure of answer than the ones who want to make 100% surety of right answer. :)

great thread...Add these also..
When learning concepts, complete one subject, gain confidence in it and move onto next one. When practicing,mix the problems and always do timed.

Love the GMAT to this extend that It should be in ur mind all time. Eat GMAT, Think GMAT and Sleep GMAT.
Consider GMAT to be your super girl with whom u have a date on D-day. The more u know(study) ur super girl(GMAT), the better is ur result....

Simulate and Visualize the perfect result you want with eyes closed and you will get the required drive to achieve that score....rajeevrks27
