Tips for Applicants

Test tip

When prepping for the GMAT remember to train with timing. I ask my students to answer all official guide material timed - always, never just for sport. Train your body and mind to perform in discreet chunks so the pace of the test won't catch you on test day.

4 questions in 7 minutes,
8 questions in 15 minutes.

This timing works for both verbal and quant sections. Once you've answered the batch of questions then thoroughly review. While checking your answers, write A-E for each question - yes, even if you got it right! Put a few words with each answer choice on every single question. It may sound tedious, but if you do this, you will see how to walk right through every question type on the GMAT. It can be straightforward, if you're willing to look. So your write up of a Sentence Correction question might look like this:
  1. broke parallelism compared insurance to premiums
  2. broke parallelism comp prepositional phrase to noun
  3. broke parallelism with a pronoun
  4. parallel and s-v agree
  5. broke parallelism comp prepositional phrase to noun, s-v agreement prob
Use the A-E process and master the GMAT in a flash!

What they write doesn't have to be all glowing positivity, but it should (on average) demonstrate your capacity to handle yourself maturely, manage people effectively, accept feedback graciously, and implement said feedback efficiently.Should you pre-write the letter for him/her? Technically NO! However, you may want to draft bullet points to remind him/her of the work you've done together.
