Hello, and welcome back to GMAT Tuesdays with Kevin! 🙂
In today’s video, I’ll help you determine how long you need to study for the GMAT, in order to achieve your goal score. Here’s a quick breakdown of the criteria I’ll discuss:
1. How do you handle standardized testing?
- If you’re not blessed with natural test-taking abilities (most of us aren’t), you’ll likely have to study for a longer period of time.
2. How much time do you have to study?
- It’s generally better to schedule short blocks of study time each day, over a long period of time.
3. How does your base GMAT score compare to your target GMAT score?
- If you need to increase your score 50-100 points, you’ll probably need to schedule about 3 months of studying (1-2 hrs/day + ~4 hrs on the weekend).
- If you need to increase your score 100+ points, you’ll probably need to study for about 6 months (1-2 hrs/day + ~4 hrs on the weekend).
4. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
- Focus on your weaknesses!
That’s all for today. See you next week!
