How did you prepare for the GMAT? Can you recommend me some good sites/ways to study for it?
Best ways/sites to prepare for GMAT
Here is the approach that worked well for me:
1. Do one practice test from the official website. It will allow you to:
- Benchmark your score - usually you can improve by 50-150 points, but not by 250
- Familiarise yourself with the format
- Familiarise yourself with the types of questions
2. Read the "instructions" to doing the most common types of questions, e.g. proportions in maths. The best book for this was, in my experience, Manhattan GMAT series. I really recommend it
3. Do as many practice questions as you can. Once in a while do the whole test so you can also practice endurance and time management. Sources:
- Official website
- Manhattan GMAT
- Kaplan books
This approach should be solid. Let me know if you have questions!
Hi! If I were you, I would get Kaplan books e.g GMAT 800. Best way to get prepared is intensive prep on Kaplan books (be quick on math questions is key!) and websites like The Economist and its 7 days free trial.
Good luck, J
gmatpill is a pretty good site for practice
