hi freinds...was telling my freind how to prepare for gmat..when i gave him this advice which i myslf realized after the exam..really liked this point so thought of sharing with u all..i might use this if i give gmat next time...but you all can use this if u like....

"one personal tip.....whenever you are giving tests at home...try to give your 100% conc in last half hour...because from my exp that is the period which breaks or make our score....
actually that is the time of eng ..last hour..pressure building up..tie running out..and questions start appearing blur..and here we lose our nerve ..in order to complete the paper we tend to mark answers hastily..and here the test take over us...so its best to try during tests to give 100% in the last half hour...it really matters with real one..."

I agree 100%. I was feeling really beat in the last 45-30 min as well. Your mind starts to get easily distracted, etc.

I think it's really important, when you do your GMATprep tests, to mimic the real thing as close as possible. When you take your breaks, use the bathroom, eat something quick and start the next section. You don't actually get a full 10 minutes, because you need to include your check-in again. My breaks were closer to 7 min.

I completely agree . Somebody said actual test starts with verbal. So thats when you have to be careful and focussed.
