There are 3 question types on the verbal section of the GMAT: sentence correction, critical reasoning, and reading comprehension.
For sentence correction questions, the key is realizing that you shouldn't learn every single grammar rule. Instead focus on:
Verbs - Use subject-verb agreement & correct verb tense according to the meaning of the sentence.
Pronouns - Check for...
The GMAT has 4 sections:
1) Analytical Writing Assessment: Write an essay in 30 minutes to demonstrate that you can identify the flaws of an argument and provide areas for improvement.
2) Integrated Reasoning: In 30 minutes tackle 12 questions that test your ability to interpret graphs, draw conclusions from tables, analyze word problems, and answer questions using multiple sources...
Summer is the best time to start studying for college/career entrance exams. Since there is no school and homework, you will not feel overwhelmed when it is time to study. Studying for just an hour a day, 5 days a week, will increase your chances of getting
a higher score and you will still have time to enjoy the summer.
Alternate subjects weekly. Familiarize yourself with all the...
Having worked with hundreds of test-takers on standardized exams over the years, I have tutored students of all abilities and levels of commitment to their studies. Most students want to know how many hours of tutoring are necessary to achieve the results
they desire. While there is no single number of hours uniformly required for all students, for all exams, I do recommend as a rule of thumb...
With the wealth of GMAT prep materials out there, it can be tough to find the best resources for GMAT study. I've been tutoring for the GMAT for five years, and these are the materials I've found to be the most helpful.
GMAT General Study
The best source of practice problems is The Official Guide for GMAT Review, published by GMAC.
For anyone that is preparing or thinking about preparing for one of the standardized 'high stakes' tests (you know which ones) -- the SAT, GRE, GMAT, ISEE, SSAT, and so on -- there's something you really
should know about test development.
But first consider this. Wouldn't it be sensible for tests to discover what your strengths are and what you do well in? Of course! But...
I'm so glad my GMAT student improved upon his score!! He's in for BIG things...
Now, I'm looking for college students to tutor! I want to see even more successes this year!!
There is is a reason the student-to-teacher ratio was small in ancient times. IT WORKS!!! :)
All the major test prep books for the SAT, ACT, and GRE -- published by companies like Kaplan, Princeton Review, Barron's, and Manhattan Test Prep -- are poorly written, conceptually deficient, and, worst of all, riddled with serious errors. Students can't
be expected to learn from books that aren't even right! And I don't mean the books are riddled simply with typos, which unfortunately is...
Congratulations to CHRIS, for getting A's in some very challenging business courses. You are taking a heavy load of classes, plus you have other multiple responsibilities. You deserve a lot of credit for your good work in your Information Systems, Financial
Accounting II, Management, and other classes. You're headed for success. Keep up the good work!
Have you scheduled a time to take one of the standardized tests listed in the subject line? Are you thinking about signing up to take one of them? Have you taken one already, but have decided to take it again in the hopes of getting a higher score? Have
you taken one of the tests, and found the experience so rewarding, you plan to sign up and take the same test simply for the enjoyment? (If...
Hi. This is just a video introducing myself and the academic and test prep areas in which I specialize. Hope we can work together!
As you may know, I am a big fan of the well-known author and brain specialist, Dr. Daniel Amen. He mentions in several of his books that Physical Exercise is good for the brain. I have read of research studies that showed a clear correlation between IMPROVEMENT
in students' test scores in math and science, and their level of physical activity (for example, when math class followed PE class,...
My wife is worried about me because I was tutoring in my dreams last night.
I struck up a conversation with a home-schooling mom the other day. Parent of a middle-school student, she told me I should talk to middle school parents about this topic because, as she put it, “We don’t know what we don’t know.”
In my blog post
“Test Prep Students 1: Before Our First Session, Please,” I mentioned planning ahead to give yourself more time to prepare. Since then, I’ve come...
It is often examples that make ideas understandable to students and current events can be a good source of examples. Case in point. Today in Wisconsin, the issue of the day is the outcome of the recall elections and problems with the exit polling. As a tutor,
the outcome isn’t interesting, but exit polling like all surveys is key to the usefulness of statistics! In fact, it gives a great opportunity...
We still have another round of tests coming up, and it’s not too late to get some help preparing for whatever test you or your student are going to take. I have various options available in the coming weeks, both private sessions and group sessions. Please
don’t hesitate to contact me for full information.
Now is the time to plan for Summer Tutoring. I will be offering a full schedule of tutoring for the summer, including some interesting group sessions and summer programs. Call for more information!
