Hey everyone,

I know I'm supposed to not do any GMAT the day before the test, and I don't plan on doing a single GMAT problem tomorrow (test Friday afternoon). But I was wondering if it's a good idea to review strategies from Princeton Review, and look over my mistakes in all the sections tomorrow, just as a reminder of what mistakes I've made. Or would that be detrimental too?

Also, on GMAT day I plan on doing 5 questions from each section a few hours before the test just to get my brain in that mode again, do you think that'll be good?

Thanks again for all your support!

I think reviewing the problems you got wrong the day before the actual test will not improve your morale or confidence going into the test. I think you'll be better off just relaxing. As far as doing a couple of questions from each section before the test - I think it's a good idea. I know people who did very well in their GMAT with this strategy. Ultimately, you know what works best for you, so just follow your instincts! :)

I am planning to go over mistakes on Sunday for my Monday test. I think it refreshes your mind on common mistakes and will keep you from making them on test day.

I would feel that knowing why you made a mistake would boost confidence and not hurt your confidence. I guess it's all in how you perceive the review.

Thanks for the comments! Then again, I could review the day of, since I'm taking it late afternoon. That might keep the mistakes fresh in my mind so I don't forget about them during the test...
