**1. 4 months of structured preparation**

**2. Master math concepts **

The math section contains 31 multiple choice questions of two types: Data Sufficiency and problem-solving. Both these question types are intermingled throughout the section.

You will be allowed a maximum of 62 minutes to solve the entire section. This section measures your ability to

**reason quantitatively, ****solve quantitative problems and ****interpret graphic data.**

The questions are derived from Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics and Modern Math.

If you haven’t had math at the plus two level, go back to the 9th, 10th level math to get started; slowly graduate to GMAT math. Irrespective of prior knowledge, you can come to a comfort zone in GMAT math in 3 months flat.

**If you are weak in math.. Feel free to ping me.. We can do a math foundation course for you**

In arithmetic acquire knowledge of numbers, ratio and proportion, percentages, profit and loss, simple and compound interest, time speed and distance, time and work.

In algebra study quadratic equations, linear/ bi-Linear equations, trigonometry. The essentials of Geometry are lines, quadrilateral, circles, polygons, trapezium and mensuration. Learn how to interpret data graphs, pie charts, bar graphs and casselets and statistics concepts such as mode, mean, standard deviation and median.

3. Reinforce the 25 sentence correction concepts.

The verbal section is the toughest section in the test. This section induces undue strain on the test taker. Besides this section is concept intensive unlike any other aptitude test.

Besides, each question type is long sentence or paragraph based requiring extensive reading of verbal information.

Let us take a closer look

The sentence correction questions (12/13) of them tests correctness and effectiveness of expression. You have to choose the option that conforms to standard written English; you have to pay attention to grammar, syntactical constructions, diction, clarity and semantic conformity.

Since GMAT is a standardized test and each question is pre tested on a test taking population we can predict and hence prepare for the test. One can go prepared for the exam with 100 percent conceptual clarity. Moreover if the test taker knows what exactly GMAT tests he can streamline and learn only those selected topics – be it verbal or math.

## 4. Internalize the tactics for critical reasoning question types

Critical reasoning tests one’s ability to discern verbal data and draw inferences, conclusions and underlying assumptions from them. Besides, it also tests one’s skill in evaluating the logic of arguments. Interestingly GMAT has been designed for a 25+ age group and hence, those who are younger need to put in much more time in preparation than those in the 25+ age group. CR necessitates wide reading of and knowledge in subjects as varied as economics, sciences, research, humanities and the like.

Critical reasoning is one scoring area where you can maximize your performance.

In this section you are given a short paragraph, an argument, followed by one or occasionally two questions. You must analyse the argument, understand the given data and answer the question that follow.

In our analysis of critical reasoning testing over a decade we have derived the following insights into the area.

- That one needs to know the basics of formal logic.
- That there is a whole domain of knowledge that can be applied to this area of testing
- That it is possible to derive generalizable and transferable tactics to solve each of the question
- That it is possible to anticipate question types in the actual test.
- That it is possible to use principles of test construction to gauge the difficulty level of a question
- That reasoning is like math in which you can hit 100%.accuracy
- That transfer of learning happens when each tactic is reinforced through practice.
- That the question types require varied pacing, enabling one to ensure accuracy in high weightage questions

## 5. Maximize practice on data sufficiency questions

Data Sufficiency is designed to measure your ability to:

1. Analyze a quantitative problem

2. Recognize which information is relevant

3. Synthesize data

4. Determine at what point there is sufficient information to solve a problem.

Data Sufficiency problems contain a question followed by two statements followed by labeled (1) and (2). You must decide whether the statements given offer enough data to answer the question.

## 6. Apply all learnt concepts in original official guide questions

## 7. Read extensively-

philosophy, art and literature reviews, socio-history, science journals; practice extensively passages with questions

## 8. Write essays employing the strategies appended in the info kit

(write min of 15 argument essays.) Have them reviewed by a est expert. It would also be prudent to make preliminary notes on each of the pre-disclosed essay prompts.

## 9. Plan remedial learning for weaker topics.

10. With every computer- based test, take the essays( do not get habituated to math and verbal alone)

This trains your thinking for 3 hour GMAT!!

## 11. Repeatedly solve GMAT official guide ( but only after thorough logic building)

12. If you are not a systematic self- learner, take up quality training from an experienced GMAT trainer.
