    Ok guys I have been studying for the GMAT for 4 weeks now. I have taken a pratice test and scored in the 80th percentile(ish) on a normal distribution bell curve. I am in the middle of studying a set of the hardest types of math questions that might appear on the test and I am having a difficult time with these. Needless to say that these questions are kicking my ass and frustration is starting to kick in.


    Currently I am studying the Princeton review prep book and ordered, "The Official GMAT Prep Book" today. I plan to study up on this book once it arrives, but if there is anything else you guys did to improve your score will you please share? Any general advice will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks and Gig 'Em

    You're doing more than most. I didn't even study for the GMAT - I mean comeon, we learned all that stuff already. Then again, I didn't apply to an ivy league school.

    just do tons of practice questions...all standardized tests are the same - they all have patterns...and doing practice questions will allow you to see those patterns.

    Then you'll walk away from the GMAT knowing you kicked ass and will get in to a baller business school!

    best of luck

    Have you checked local colleges to see if they offer study prep classes?

    get a good nights rest for the test, eat good food that fills you and holds you through several hours...hydrate, no coffee....makes you pee too much and can give you the shits if you are stressed.....relax.....get used to the style and format of the test.....GOOD LUCK!
