I've been studying the gmat for about 2-3 months because I am a bad standardized test taker. After taking my first practice test i got a 550 and i was like all right this is the average score. I did all right on the math but i did better in the verbal. So i thought i'd focus on the math for a week and do another practice a week and a half later. I figure that since i did better in the reading then i don't have to focus on that. However, that week was my first week of work and I didn't have time to study a lot of math. I could only focus on the weak points and when i took the test a week and a half later i got 9 more correct on the math section but i did worse on the reading. I was feeling tired on the reading section and i wasn't concentrating hard enough. I know I wasn't focusing so i believe that is the reason why i did worse on the reading. Is there a way to practice my stamina for my reading since it is the last section of the gmat. I believe that if i can have the stamina then i can get into the 600 which is my goal. I figure that if i read a boring article that I am not interested in everyday for a weak while practicing my math that I can do that. Is there something else that I can do?

Yes, the test is long and could tire your brain. But here are a few things you could try
- take that optional 8 min break between math and english. Pace yourself, maybe snack on something
- While reading the passages, instead of thinking that they are long and boring, personalize them! Get into the shoes of the author and think like him. If he is happy, get happy with him. If he is protesting, think of ways to help him. This might come in handy on CR questions when you have to assume, or strengthen.

The only way to increase your stamina is to sit through more long hours so you get used to them. In no time, you will be able to focus and get through the last 75 mins.

Goodluck!
