Thanks alot for your response. I have too experienced the same. Whenever I try the gmat prep wrong questions again after the test, I get it right. This actually irritates.
Bt your gmat 3 score seems to be really good. What test taking strategies would you recommend? I want to overcome this mental fatigue actually.
The only key is PRACTICE.
Did you check, why you got the questions wrong? Were you under pressure to complete the exam, was it a mistake that you keep repeating?
I used to get many questions wrong in verbal, but on second look, I could answer many of them correctly. The problem was that I didn't take my attempts seriously enough.
For example - amount of brick and number of bricks
, both are right but amount of bricks is wrong. I was not able to understand such subtle differences during the tests initially.
And many times, there is only little difference between answer choices. So, an attentive reading of both question and answer choice would land you to a higher score. Focus!
Also, if you are aware of your weaknesses (some may apply/ some may not) such as
- you get stuck at a question, then don't waste much time and energy on such questions.
- you repeatedly miss out information from the questions, then be more attentive.
- you are solving the question in less time and getting it wrong, then you need to give more time to such questions.
As I mentioned in my debrief, go for a marathon once a week. Sit and complete a test (complete 4 hours exam), review it and then solve more questions from each section till you are exhausted, and then stop!
PM me if you have any other query.
