Hello everyone!

Starting with the famous quote - Learn from others mistakes.. you can't commit them all by yourself!!

I'm just a fellow GMAT student like you all..
I'm starting this new thread wherein each day I will share the new things / tips learnt or mistakes made during my GMAT preparation..
The purpose is to consolidate all the learnings at one place..

I encourage all of you to actively participate in the discussion and share your thoughts so that we learn from each other's mistakes..

Thanks

Day - 1
GMAT Wisdom - Reading Comprehension
How to be an active reader?
Whatever the GMAT RC passage is ‘about’ doesn’t really matter. What matters is what the author says about whatever the passage is about. You don’t really need to understand the passage in order to understand the relationships within it.

Generally, there are five big things to look out for in GMAT Reading Comp:

1. Who thinks what (any beliefs/theories/ideas/opinions) and why (the premises for said beliefs/theories/ideas/opinions)
2. Comparisons (any time the similarities/differences of two or more different things are discussed)
3. Changes (any time some thing becomes another thing)
4. Cause and Effect (any time some thing makes some other thing happen)
5. Disagreements (any time people or groups think differently)

If you get a topic that you think is boring, pretend you’re reading for a friend who actually likes this topic and that helps me pay more attention so that I can “tell” my friend about this passage I know they’ll like..

Nice initiative. Adding mine:

Curiosity is essential for progress. Only when we look to worlds beyond our own can we really know if there's room for improvement.

Esp true for those dreaded RCs on GMAT :lol: :lol:

Nice project!
I'm sure many will be able to use your tips.

I think it can help if you also share what resource did you learn the daily tips from.
And why did you decide to start from RC?

I'll be following this thread. Keep it up.

Day - 2
GMAT Wisdom - General Verbal..

Today, I learnt (actually read a post of one of the MGMAT experts) regarding one of THE MOST CHALLENGING tasks :dazed :o - What to do when you are left with last two answer choices on any verbal question?

When you get down to last 2 answer choices, “pause and re-focus”.
Sometimes in the process of eliminating the first 3, we lose some of the nuance of exactly what the question is asking and the last choice can trip you us.
So take a brief step back, look at the question again, look at your two last answer choices fresh and then make your choice.

I will definitely keep this tip in mind from now on.. :grin:

Request GMAT experts to give share their views on same.. :angel:

Focus on your weaknesses.

I've seen too many students, especially those with particularly strong quantitative skills, do more and more of the section that they are already comfortable with. It's understandable: you like getting questions right, and you feel like you've achieved something.

Actually, no matter how much it feels like you're banging your head against a wall, you need to focus on the areas that you are not good at.

I strongly recommend to have a plan and not to sporadically jump between topics. For most people it's best option and will help them prepare better.
