Help Needed on mental- stamina..Please Help me [#permalink] New post 17 Aug 2008, 11:17
Hi,

I really need help on mental- stamina. I am doing my GMAT preparation since last 2 months (Weekday 2.5 hours daily, weekend 6hours each). I have studied almost all popular books and now have good understanding on various Gmat’s Strategies and solutions.

However I am not able to finish even a single full-length practice test. In all test, I perform well in first 60-70 minutes. However after that I start to loose focus and finally end up with frustration. I tried almost all techniques to stay focused like I did break the full-length exam in pieces etc…I did good on small exam. However whenever I try to give full-length exam I end up with frustration.

IS this common problem or I am not suited for GMAT at all. Request you to please give me suggestions so that I can achieve my GMAT dream.

I have already scheduled the exam on 22nd September.

I think this is a common problem. I believe this is one of the main reasons behind people scoring lower on the verbal section than expected. There are very few situations that actually prepare us to sit through a 4 hour exam and concentrate to the level necessary for a good score on the GMAT. I am not sure of techniques to use as I didn't use any techniques like this. If I did, I'd gladly tell you. I suggest doing some google searches and maybe finding some suggedstions.

You are still capable of doing well on the GMAT. You've identified an area you need to work on. That's a great first step. If I see or read any tips, I'll come back and post them here for you.

Before a full length test, I go for a brisk jogging so that I can feel fresh to start. And I think the only way to build your mental stamina for taking the full length test is to take the test as a game or challenge not as a burden (I should finish this as soon as possible so that I will be free). It is very important to build stamina to stay focus for 4 hrs and I think you should try different strategies (which should suit you best) to find out the best one for you.

I ran into that same problem, but the only way to build your stamina is to practice by taking full-length tests, and not skipping the essay portion. If you do a test per weekend, your stamina will increase most definitely. Hang in there!
