Yes, thought about who would be the best actor to hire as a GMAT instructor and we tried a few - we cast George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Robert Downey Jr, Kevin Bacon, Dave Chappelle, but it was not really doing it.... and then we hit the jackpot - Adam Sandler. We had to do a bit of reputational cleanup and had to rebrand him and cast him with a new name. GMAT Ninja seemed to work well 🤷‍♂️

Hi All, I am a Gmat aspirant since 5 years and reaching out for each one’s support and motivation here! I have tried many offline and online courses and have successfully failed multiple times. After my last Gmat in March this year, the frustration, burn out, self doubt has so much cluttered my head that all the motivation to start my Gmat dream is lost and the same seems as climbing the Everest.
Any motivation to encourage me to restart the GMAT path would be much appreciated.

Hey buddy. Don’t lose hope. Whatever I say, will probably not ease your pain, but what works for me is developing in me a learning mindset, and learning to enjoy deep reasoning. Forget about the clock, forget about the goal, just enjoy the process. Look at each question as a game, a puzzle, or a trap. Try not to judge or even assess yourself by the result. Super high scorer’s many a times spend even up to 2 hours deep reasoning on a single question.

bb Don’t know whether anyone else is having this issue, but in week 4 there is no section for interpreting results. It instead just has a GMAT Ninja comment saying “reserved”.

Thx. I saw that. Did you ping Charles in the topic? He may have forgotten to post it or still working on it.

Hi everyone. I’m following the weekly plans (currently doing week 2) and really struggling with LSAT RC passages. They seem too long and I keep losing concentration in between. And this is preventing e from completing it within the recommended time frame. please help:(

I personally liked taking notes and paraphrasing each paragraph while reading. I think it helps with the exact issue you have.

My problem was that there was too much information for me to process and store properly because I can only process so much information and I think my processing speed was slower than my reading speed. As the result, slowing down for 10 to 15 seconds after each paragraph and to summarize in my own thoughts, what I just read and what it likely indicated (support, opposite, expand, detail, compare, etc) helped me too store this information much better. I also actually took notes while reading. I never went back to look at them or read them. However, the active process of writing them, insured they were stored in my mind, which is why I never had to go back to read them.

This will not help you save time right away and probably will take you longer, but this should propel your accuracy rate up with only a very slight increase in time spent. So if you were spending 10 minutes on the passage and got 50%, correct, no you would spend 11 to 12 minutes on the passage and hopefully get 75% correct which is a pretty darn good investment of 1-2 minutes. 😇

Re: Study Plan Q&A Chat [#permalink]
My LSAT RC scores vary too much is it normal? When passages are somewhat easier or familiar ı tend to score higher whereas when passages are denser with trickier question ı get humiliated. So far ı finished 22 LSAT RC tests and my scores strangely vary between %60-90 accuracy within ~55 min.

ı dont know how ı can maintain a solid accuracy and also ı really struggle to very precisely understand passages. Some sentences are far too convoluted and dense for my non-native brain to entangle; especially humanities where they write 100 word and 5 sentence just to convey a basic idea that could have easily been conveyed with 10-15 words...
