You should know that you've had too much of GMAT preparation when:

1. You read statuses on FB and see only grammatical errors in them.
2. You comment on those statuses writing the correct form and your friends call you a douche.
3. While arguing with your mom you say that her assumption is incorrect. And she's like 'huh!'
4. While running on the treadmill you calculate your average running speed within seconds.
5. You get dreams of hitting the perfect score. Everyday!

When you feel GMAT has become a part of your life when you can't live without or live with it. You have a difficultly either letting it go or trying to wrap it up.

Begin to think GMAT like an adversary almost an human being whom you want to conquer and defeat. You say in mind "GMAT, here I come". You start to enjoy studying for GMAT.

You know your studying to much for the GMAT when..... [#permalink] New post 06 Aug 2013, 06:50
For me it's when you turn the question what hotel is your boss staying in, into a data sufficiency question.

What Hotel is Keith Staying in. Is Keith staying at the Auburn Hills Hampton Inn

1. Keith is in a Hilton Hotel

2. Keith is staying in Detroit

1. Hampton Inn is a Hilton Worldwide brand. Sir Google says the Hampton Inn is the only Hilton property in Auburn Hills. But this is not the only Hampton Inn property. -- Not sufficient.
2. Auburn Hills is approximately 30 miles from Detroit. Clearly AH is a suburb of Detroit, but it is not Detroit. -- Sufficient.

LOL, sometimes I really don't like DS questions. This one was fun though.

Also, when you can't concentrate on people talking because you're busy finding faults in their logic or laugh at others' grammatical errors, ones you championed before starting to study.

Watching sports has become as much listening to the commentators make mistakes in their sentences.

Every time I hear the words "not only..." I wait to hear "...but also" and lament the sentence if it didn't provide the correct idiom!

Lousy GMAT pervading my life! ;)

[*] You have spent so much time answering questions on various forums that the thought of becoming GMAT tutor after you take the test has crossed your mind at least once. ( It crossed a thousand times :P)

1. When your girlfriend starts complaining that you are not giving her much time!
2. When you wake up at 3am to study for GMAT and your girlfriend thinks that you have gone insane!
3. When you keep on dreaming that one day you are gonna graduate from this and that college!
4. When you eat, drink, sleep Manhattan books!
5. When you start complaining that GMAT Verbal is tougher than GMAT Quant. (Especially for Indians) (I'm an Indian!)
6. When you try to collect as many notes, try to download as many books as you can get free online and fill your whole hard drive with those free books. And at the end you'll end up reading 0.0001% of them only!
