I planned to prepare for GMAT some time in last october. While browsing through came across this website and I felt I am on track and can complete it in 3 months. I studied math books for a month (Nov). Everything seems going well. But in December, when I started to work with Verbal, I felt I know nothing and got very demotivated. And at tha same time I had lot of work pressure in office and in personal life(managing with kid) too. I stopped working on GMAT for 2 and half month. Now I want to start the study again and dont want to stop it until the exam day. But I dont feel like picking up again. Whenever I think of verbal, I feel it is real tough and I might not be able to do it. I need some motivation that drives me towards study. Any suggestions are gratley appreciated. Thanks.

Being motivated to study is probably one of the hardest things to do. After I took my GMAT the first time, I wasn't satisfied with my score and decided I would try to take it again. I gave myself a 2 week break but that slowly turned into a 3 month break. I've finally begun to study again. Basically my motivation now is knowing that my score just isn't good enough to get into the schools I want to go to. I've also taken away some of my distractions (xbox and tv) so I won't be tempted to break away from my studying. This is slowly working and I'm getting back into the flow of studying.

You really can't let your poor performance let you down. You have to remember to practice as much as you can because with enough practice you can reach your goal. For CR and RC, I used my wife's old LSATs. After doing the LSAT CR & RC, I found the GMAT questions to be super easy. For SC I used the MGMAT book but I didn't find that to help me out too much (just way too much information). I began just practicing as many SC questions as I could get my hands on, and I was finally able to recognize the traps in the questions.

Remember, just keep practicing, try to keep your anxiety down while going through tough questions and keep your distractions away.

Hope that helps out a bit.
Good luck!
