This week, we’ll be hearing Rittwika’s story. Rittwika lives in Kolkata, India and works at IBM as a senior software engineer. She received her masters in computer application from Banasthali University Rajasthan. Having a good technical background in ERP, she now wants to shift to the business side of it. So, she’s targeting MIS courses in the US. After grad school, she hopes to have a career in IT management programs.
In my GRE experience, I had difficulty pacing the questions in the given time limit. With less than a month to prep and a 12 hr a day work schedule, I didn’t have more than an hour to practice on weekdays. Magoosh helped me a lot by letting me customize my practice sessions based on level of difficulty and number of questions. The score predictor was highly accurate and helped me reach the week-to-week goal I would set . The detailed video lessons made the concepts very easy to grasp, especially the verbal sections. This, followed by a detailed video explanation on every question, helped me improve all my weak points. I loved interacting with Magoosh’s tutors who always had some helpful tips for me to improve.
My biggest tip would be to have a strategy:
a. Start out with a full length practice test and figure out where you’re lacking.
b. Keep doing customized practice sessions for individual subjects and review each question carefully. You can create a word document and list out the recurring conceptual errors and review them whenever you get a chance .
c. Vocabulary is very essential and you must work on it everyday on a steady rate. Try to learn up to 20 new words everyday and try incorporating them in day to day sentences .
