So I am applying for PhD's and I never wanted to give GMAT or GRE (because I'm not good in maths) but then I saw these two really good universities offering PhD's in the field that I wanted to do and to my horror
they required GMAT or GRE! So now my test date is on 10th Feb since I need to provide them the GMAT score asap and I just have a month to prepare. Actually I started on the 1st of Jan so I have 25 days approx. I started taking GMAT prep classes from 1st of Jan. The classes are really good and I am picking up on a good pace as they are covering the topics and making us practice. The problem is I work from 9-5 and i take classes from 7-10 but by the time I'm home I'm so exhausted that I am unable to apply what I have learnt. And the maths section, well after 6 years i can only say I am a disaster
. I only have the weekends where I can give my full attention but I am just too scared that I'll get a bad score and I wont be able to cover all topics. So can someone give me some advice? I know 1 month is less time but I didn't have any other choice because of the deadlines!
Most people are nervous going into the exam - where is the need to be nervous while preparing for it?
Who says you have to cover ALL topics? Focus on the most important topics - Number Properties, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry - work hard on your basics of these topics. You wouldn't be attending classes everyday. Even if you are unable to revise the same day, get up early next day and revise. Do some practice problems in the next 2 days. Life will be tough with no time for social activities but the good thing is that it will last only about a month!
