GMAT advices and quotes made of gold and created by featured members of the GMAT Club forums. Those are samples of some of the valuable words written by successful GMAT takers and this forum's participants. Please Feel free to add more .. I just loved to see a valuable collection of significant advices from smart GMAT takers, or even students !

-_-_-_-_-_-

"Don't waste your time trying to get too many resources and over complicating things. Spend your time on the materials guaranteed to help you on the GMAT."
Farseer

"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.”

“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

"The GMAT is the best thing going in predicting first-year performance in core academic courses."
bb

"DO NOT DWELL on previous problems or they will haunt you throughout the rest of the section. Let go and start new for every problem."

"As a student, you need to take inventory of YOUR own personal strengths and weaknesses, and taylor a sensible plan to overcome those weaknesses while simultaneously enhancing your strengths"
AkamaiBrah

"Here are the main learnings I had:
1. Repitition is key. 2. Practice tests are critical. 3. Relax."
JP
700 GMAT scorer

"I have one advice - when you practice your tests, don't always do so in a room that's very quiet. The exam hall was a little noisy and I could hear the traffic on the road. Also, people were moving in/out etc."
srb2k

"I don't think that being a native English speaker necessary means that one will do well or badly on the verbal section. The verbal section tests arcane rules of grammar, requires efficient reading comprehension abilities, and comfort with logical reasoning."

"Actually, we tend to lose score in the last 15 minutes when we are tired and under pressure to do more questions in less time. If we are not careful then, whatever score we have achieved temporarily would simply plunge."

Never cancel your score. If you showed up to the exam, it means you thought you had a chance. So see what you got.

Beauty is subjective to the perception of the observer. The GMAT is not!
