All,

I have just started my preparation for the GMAT with the diag score 540 and i am targetting 700 score by October end. Since, i work full time, i hardly get time in the evening. So, i started getting up early in the morning around 5:00AM But, sometimes i feel groggy and not able to concentrate properly which i feel is a waste of time. Can you give me tips so that i can study more effectively after getting up early.I usually sleep at the same time at night.
Thanks

Study at times when your body better operates.

If you stick with th 5:00am routine, it will become easier with time. Any change in routine takes time to adjust.

If it doesn't work, allocate time at night for studying.

There really isn't any magic tricks here. You need to figure out what works best for you and stick with it.

Get a calendar, mark the month of October in Red and put it on your study table. Every morning while studying, steal glances at it... You won't be able to sleep after that! Plus, every morning, start with some tough questions, new tricky concepts etc - things that require you to be alert. Once you survive the first half hour, rest of the time will be easy. And of course, with time your body will adjust to the new routine.
