Hi guys! I am wondering if anyone can help with a personal study issue. I am getting ready to start studying for my third gmat attempt. Unfortunately this time around I’m having difficultly focusing and concentrating. Seems like the material is stale and my mind is not into this.

How have others, who have attempted multiple times, gotten over this hump? I meditate 2-3 times a day regularly. What additional things can I do to reengage myself and get back into the groove. I am really yearning to begin and get this done with once and for all.

I started at 460 > 660 > TBD

Hi spatel2, you have already made the kind of improvement (200 points) that most re-takers can only dream of. This should be motivation enough.

The thing is that irrespective of whichever material you choose during your third attempt, you would already know 60-70% of it; after all, you already know what it takes for a 660.

However, the further score improvement that you are looking for now, would come from the balance 30% that you learn, in this attempt. Don't let the repetition of that 60-70% material distract you by monotony.

Most important, don't just go thru the motions. Be enthusiastic and be determined. Your past score improvement already shows how determined you are. Don't let the momentum wane.

spatel2, I don't think that I have anything terribly useful to say, but your post caught my eye. And I just wanted to echo Ashish's sentiment that you've already achieved an AMAZING thing with a 200-point improvement. Seriously, that's incredibly rare, and you should feel great about what you've already done so far -- even if it's not quite your ultimate goal.

In other words: I have a very strong feeling that you have the spirit to achieve whatever score you desire. :)

You might already have seen these, but here are three of my favorite debriefs from GMAT Club members who suffered for quite some time. Maybe these will provide some inspiration?
