GMAT Preparation in Kolkata with EduAims – Crack the GMAT within 2 months
Preparation for the GMAT is both extensive and intensive – extensive because one is expected to cover all the question types in as much detail and intensive because GMAT demands a change in the way you look at how to tackle problems. Due to this dual nature, the preparation can become time-consuming, involving dedication and focus. While the average time taken by a student to prepare for the GMAT is 4-6 months, the 2-month preparation plan may be a bit crunched for time, thus demanding more bandwidth from you than usual.
This plan will only work for individuals:
– who are quite well versed in the basic concepts but are relatively weaker in the advanced concepts.
– whose knowledge in most concepts is strong but is weak in one section and/or lacks practice in few sections.
– who is aware that the deadline to submit their applications is close by and is sensitive to the fact that an entire year may be lost if the application is not sent before the deadline.
Ideally, this plan is practical for a student who is still in college or for a professional who has a few years of work experience. The student would normally have to devote about 4-5 hours towards preparation for GMAT every day. Totally it is expected that such a student would spend around 250 hours to brush up on the basic concepts as it is necessary for the student to know them well, and spend another 100 hours on practicing these concepts.
Extensive preparation for GMAT gives immense confidence to face the test but at the same time, the student should bear in mind that time lost during preparation cannot be compensated due to the crunch in time that the student is already facing.
In case you are not familiar with certain concepts tested on the GMAT, you should be ready to spend 2 hours every day to study and work on those concepts first. This should help you familiarize yourself with these concepts and will better prepare you to face the Test.
Taking mock tests is an important aspect to prepare for the GMAT. But, what is more, important than taking the mock test is to analyze your errors and make sure you aren’t repeating your errors. Causes for mistakes should be found out and rectified immediately to ensure they are not repeated in the next test. A student should also start working on the advanced questions for at least 2 hours every day to build your confidence, as well as to become prepared to get a 700+ on the test as the GMAT is an adaptive one to face.
In case you are totally weak with one of the components tested on the GMAT, say Verbal, then it would do you good to learn the concepts in a fortnight and simultaneously practice the advanced concepts in the other section, say Quants. In this manner, you can be in touch with both Quant & Verbal & be able to track your progress.
The plan should include working out all types of questions that test the different concepts in GMAT quant and GMAT Verbal. This will give you the ability to switch well between question types. Once the student gets to the Verbal section he will have to devote all time only on the Verbal concepts and questions. To test whether he has imbibed the concepts in Quant or not he should take as many mock tests as possible.
There are some students who are equally good or bad in all the question types that are tested on the GMAT. In this case, you should dedicate time to first study the basic concepts & progress to the difficult & advanced questions. Knowing that the time available is limited, you should evaluate your performance with every test taken. This is a good indicator of whether you are ready to take the Test. If you feel that your performance is not up to the mark, then you should take time off to fine-tune your test-taking skills and plan to reschedule the test to a later date. It is also advisable to seek professional advice in case you are not able to take a decision. Contact EduAims at 18001216383 for guidance on how to go about your preparation.
