I think what it is is that it takes me a while to learn some of the basic concepts. Yes I go over my mistakes- but I feel overwhelmed by them- (because there are so many at times.)
Honestly- I feel like I've gone through a real roller-coaster lately with my studying. Here's what has happened:
I wanted to enroll in an in-classroom course. I enrolled for one through Veritas
for early May that got cancelled. So I enrolled for the next in-class course in early August. (This is where my comfort level was- I wanted a teacher to help guide me through my mistakes.)
Then I had to switch the class due to my new job starting- and my move for it to another country. I settled for a live online class that was suppossed to start last Saturday-
That class ALSO GETS CANCELLED. Before I was finally told of this (for some reason they knew it was cancelled and no one contacted me- I had to call them....5 times!!!)- I had taken a 2 week break because I was burned out. I did try hard. I would study at least 10-12 hours a week on the Quant section alone. I saw some improvement- but when it came to my practice tests (and being timed,) I'd freak out, and BOMB.
All of that w/ the added problems Veritas
has given me left me feeling even more insecure, and worried. So now....I'm thinking I will NOT be able to take my test in August. I just won't be ready and don't want to force myself. I'm looking at enrolling in a MGMAT self-study course- because that is all that will accomodate my schedule.
AND I may quite possibly have to fly to Vietnam in order to take my test- because this may be the only place that can also accomodate my work schedule at my new job. It's a bit of added stress- but that's fine. I've accepted that this may be what I have to do- because I REALLY WANT THIS...
I feel I'm getting a second wind though- and am NOT GOING TO GIVE UP. I know that much. It's just that after rearranging my schedule, my flight out of Korea for my new job, and my test date around these stupid Veritas
classes- it has only made me that much more stressed out.
However- I am waiting for my refund from Veritas
- and am going to start with someone esle. I'm not at square one- I know that and can sense that looking at some of the material again. But this board has definately helped me with my motivation- and offered me lots of encouragement.....so thanx.
Anyway- so that's my current situation. Probably not much anyone can give me as far as advice- but just need to vent....
