GMAT Study Guide and GMAT Prep Courses
Nothing sums up the competitive nature of the MBA admissions process
quite like the GMAT CAT. A few statistics paint a stark picture:
Each year some 200,000 young professionals take the Graduate
Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Of these, only about 12,000 will
score high enough to meet or exceed the average scores reported by most
Top 20 programs. And of these, only 4,000 will meet or exceed the
reported average score at Stanford's Graduate School of Business - the
most competitive b-school in terms of test scores.
Obviously, solid preparation is key. While nothing substitutes for
hitting the books or training at a quality test preparation center, the
following pages will get you off to a good start. We'll tell you how to
register for the test, give you a rundown on test structure, scoring and
question types, and end with some score-building strategies. Think of
these pages as an extra 30 or 40 points on the real thing.
If you're an international student (that is, a non-native
English-speaker), you'll be asked to take the Test Of English as a
Foreign Language (TOEFL) as well. As the name implies, this test is
designed to determine if your English is advanced enough to meet the
language challenge of an American academic environment.
Again, some preparation is crucial (even if you're a fluent
English-speaker) to make certain your skills are shown at their best on
the test. To that end, we'll give you a rundown on TOEFL structure,
question types, and point-winning strategies.
Finally, we'll review some of your test-prep options and suggest
choices that provide the highest value-added. Good luck!
