Preparing for the GMAT
In addition to working as a waitress and being a full-time student, I have been preparing for the GMAT the past few months. This test will be here before I know it, which has been a dark cloud looming in my life. While I am not planning on going directly into a graduate program, I would eventually like to go back to school. The GMAT can make this dream a reality. The website mba.com says, "leading business schools and management education programs worldwide recognize the GMAT as the most effective predictor of success." Scores can be used for up to five years when applying to masters programs. Recently I stumbled on a helpful blog called GMAT Hacks, for anyone else taking the GMAT I highly recommend subscribing to this blog. Articles discuss test-taking tactics and the site has over 1800 past test questions. Jeff Sackmann is a test prep tutor that has written this blog for the past ten years. After looking over his advice on taking the math sections (my weakness), I already feel more confident in my abilities. Consider this blog a shout-out to Jeff Sackmann, I plan on reading this site every day until T-day (test day!).
