GMAT Is a Key to Excellent Opportunities
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a common requirement for admission to the well-known Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs, for some Master’s degree programs in business-related areas, and to some management job opportunities. GMAT is a standardized computer-adaptive test (CAT) conducted in English, which checks the level of your analytical, quantitative, critical reasoning, and written expression skills. These are crucial skills needed for your successful business and management studies, as well as for your everyday routine as a manager and a business decision maker.
Answer all questions and get off to a good start
•  Guess and estimate when necessary.
•  Try your best on the initial questions.
This is more of a entrance test, once Im presented something how can I apply info and solve something in application…. can I apply all Ive learned to some new challenge. What you know, what you do, how you think
Understanding the GMAT Scoring Algorithm
a test of higher order thinking… higher reasoning
GMAT is trying to do with the questions it feeds you. “Is this person above a 700? Yes.” “Is this person above a 750? No.” Because the test needs to get those “no” answers at the upper limit of your ability, it will continue to feed you harder questions that you will likely answer incorrectly as it tests your upper threshold, and at the lower end it will feed you easier questions to test your minimum ability.
/!\ remember ANSWERS ARE ASSETS TRY pluggin in answers to SOLVE
  • QUANTITATIVE :: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability statistics
  • use symptoms of numbers … even or odd pos or neg rule out answers!
  • Ignore each element each for themselves ; clear your mind for each.
  • The 2 wrong answers :: DONT infer assumptions, dont inject limits,
  • what info that is there in problem statement that Im not using to answer
  • cant assume whats there : play devils advocate : think CRITICAL
  • could be this but what else could it be : be street smart!
