Acing the GMAT Exam

Prior to Applying to MBA programs, students have to take the GMAT Exam. This exam is a general exam that measures a student's ability to reason verbally and quantitatively as well as their ability to write in a coherent and well-developed manner. It helps to know what the test will be like prior to taking it. Consider these tips from MBA in America:

The test is like this: you have two essays at the beginning of the test. One is an analysis of an argument and other is analysis of an issue. Each is a half an hour in duration.

The third section deals with verbal ability. You have reading comprehension and sentence correction exercises. Don't underestimate this section. This section is perhaps the toughest of the test.

The fourth section of the test deals with quantitative ability. Knowing basic algebra will make you able to deal with this section. However, preparation is the key.

The best book to prepare for the GMAT is the "Official guide to the GMAT" by ETS. It is a pretty pricey and bulky book, but it is excellent practice material.

The test is computer generated and will ask easier or harder questions based on whether or not you are answering questions correctly. Correct answers to harder questions will earn you a higher score than correct answer to easier questions. GMAT scores over 700 will increase your chances of getting into an Ivy League b-school as well as increase the potentiality of you receiving financial aid.
