Hi Guys,

I am not sure if I am only one to experience this ,but I feel exhausted/Saturated/burn out and what is worrisome is my exam is scheduled next month.
There is so much to cover and last month I believe is make or break for GMAT?

Please advise on how should I come out of this?
Each passing day is a precious time lost ..

What should I do ?

Thanks,
Ravi Singhal

Hi Ravi Singhal,

Many aspirants fear this as the exam approaches near.
The best way to figure out your current standing and the topics you need to focus on is by taking a full length mock CAT preferably GMAT prep CAT.

Once you have taken the test, make sure you analyze the test thoroughly and drill down deep.

SC: The questions test various concepts such as S-V agreement, modifiers, parallelism etc. Find out what troubles you.
CR: There might be certain types of questions that are troubling you. May be Assumption, may be conclusion, inference etc.
You need to find that out and then practice them
RC: This again can be drilled down into different types of questions and also different topics. See what questions and topics trouble you the most and then practice accordingly.

As an addition, start preparing an error log and keep a note of all the mistakes you made and the lessons you learnt from the problems. This will ensure you do not make the same mistake again.

Make sure you complete all of the OG and the Verbal review and if required, you can buy the Question pack1 from mba.com

1. Are you following any preparatory course/book?
2. What was your score in the previous mock CAT?

Thanks for sharing.

Try to maintain a balance with your activities such as exercising, socializing, or just resting. Keeping a fresh mind during the exam is very important to make sure that you are sharp and focused. Another advice would be to practice full-length mock exams, it would help train your mental endurance for the actual one. If possible, simulate with how you will take the actual GMAT, in terms of time of day to take, and amount of rest you have before the exam.

Wish you all the best!
