Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Well you probably have time to study so go ahead and do this.
Buy the Official Guide to the GMAT 11th edition and go over the questions (yellow book) and also get the green and purple books (Quantitative and Verbal versions) and go over the questions slowly.
But since you are tired after work you might want to get a princeton review of Kaplan 2007 book and use the CD to get yourself into studying. The key is to get excited about the test. I know this may sound hard, but this test can be conquered.
And by joining this site you have stepped a foot in the right direction. Keep up the good work.
Yeah, I found it hard to get started too. Make it seem less intimidating...start out only scheduling an hour a night to just do practice questions. Work your way toward 2 hours of practice questions on weeknights if you have the time and energy. Do a full test on the weekends.
If your test is in a month or less, then you definitely need to kick it in fast. Otherwise you can go at a moderate pace over 2-3 months.
At first it was hard for me to get into the habit of studying, but after a week of studying, I got used to it and actually enjoyed it as my scores increased. Taking this seriously and really motivating yourself is the key.
I also took the Kaplan Course. This made me go to class and do the "homework". So if you ahve some lack of motivation, this may help as well.
