Hi everybody,

Besides reviewing flash cards, what drills / exercises do you recommend for staying in peak performance ahead of test day?

The more detailed the better. Quant is my weaker area and I’m thinking that should be the LAST thing I train before heading into the exam (since it is my first section in order).

Wondering what I should do to stay absolutely tip top and not forget any knowledge or tactics.

Thanks!

Hi Rthomas,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Honestly, your plan sounds perfect. Do some light studying, such as doing focused practice and reviewing flash cards/notes from past topics to ensure that knowledge has not slipped through the cracks.

Every bone in your body is going to tell you to “study study study,” but trust me, cramming or over-studying will hurt more than it will help. Try to keep busy with activities other than GMAT prep: go out to dinner, go to the movies, binge-watch netflix, go for a run… Do whatever you have to so you don’t spend the days leading up to your exam worrying about how things will go. If you take this time to do fun, relaxing things, come test day, you can walk into your GMAT with a fresh head and kick the pants off the test.

You also may find it helpful to read this article that provides some advice on how to treat the final week leading up to your exam as well as some test day tips.

Feel free to reach out with any further questions.
