Practice is important – and we know why
The most important and sometimes the most daunting thing about choosing a GMAT preparation course is to ensure that it is a good and not over-priced source of practice questions. The GMAT requires you to apply knowledge obtained at school or university to real situations and to be able to see in any given situation not only the trees but also the forest they form.
This emphasis on practical application is not something that did not exist until the GMAT. Business schools, for instance, have long used case studies as a means for students to apply theoretical knowledge to real circumstances. Employers look for professionals who not only “know” but also “can”, and GMAT formulates its questions with this in mind. That is one reason why your examination will test not only your knowledge of English and math but also your capacity to reason about the problems presented through English and math.
Thus, even though studying or revising concepts from math, grammar, or logic might be uncomplicated, becoming proficient with how the GMAT tests them is a different matter: it requires work and practice, practice and work … and then more.
You get more than 180 hours of relevant practice
In the GMAT online database there are more than 5,500 GMAT practice questions that reproduce both the format and the conceptual features of actual GMAT questions. Nine complete CATs, pre-class tests and practice tests at every new session, and the opportunity to generate your own tests: all this provides ample satisfaction of any student’s need to work intensively on GMAT preparation. We have figured that working on all our practice questions would provide you with more than 180 hours of GMAT practice—and this is by far and away more than most GMAT students need.
What’s more, you will recognize our testing interface when you go for the GMAT. It has the same look and functions and even the same buttons that you will get on the GMAT. After all, the real test will give you plenty of stress of the unavoidable type; you don’t want added, unnecessary stress from having to work out how to get around the interface. After practicing with GMAT Online, you will find the interface on your real test familiar, with a screen and buttons – and of course question types – already familiar to you. Preparing in this way for the real test saves time, boosts your confidence, and helps you to concentrate on getting right answers without fluster and unnecessary delays.
Targeted practice is more effective practice
Above all, we provide targeted practice. The conventional approach to practice is not enough. This is the view of students who have taken other courses before subscribing to GMAT Online. We have found out from them that the normal practice options are unsatisfactory: they do not focus a student’s study. After any initial stage of GMAT preparation, what is required is targeted practice, workouts focused on what you need to improve.
Our Test Generator allows you to focus on your weak points
Imagine that you are nearing the end of your GMAT preparation. At this stage, simply answering all your left-over practice questions is going to be just a waste of your valuable time. This is the moment to target your weak points and practice only the skills you most need. With this in mind, we have created a unique tool: our Test Generator. With Test Generator, you can specify test parameters such as category and difficulty of question. All the questions in our database are grouped by level, type, and skills tested, and the Test Generator will select appropriate questions from our database to make a test in accordance with your specifications.
The Test Generator’s classification of questions is very specific, so in this way you can focus on your weak points. If you feel that assumptions or comparisons are still giving you headaches, you will not need to wade through general Critical Reasoning or Sentence Correction tests in the hope of chancing on a question dealing with assumptions or with comparisons. With GMAT Online, you can create a test focusing on these subject-areas and on nothing else. And exactly the same applies to the Quantitative as to the Verbal sections of the test.
Test generation and analytics
In tandem with our analytical system that dissects and explains all your mistakes while providing in-depth charts that set out your stronger and weaker subject-areas, Test Generator helps you to avoid throwing away your time on material that you already understand and to concentrate on building up what may require reinforcement.
There are more and more students on the lookout for a dependable GMAT practice resource. Our reasonably-priced practice plan has been drawn up with their needs in mind. Perhaps you are new to the GMAT, or maybe have done another online course and feel disappointed with what it provided you. In whichever case, our preparation plan will fit with and respond to your needs.
Practice matters – and we know why
The most important and challenging thing about selecting a GMAT preparation course is to find a good, affordable source of practice questions. The GMAT requires you to apply knowledge obtained at school or university to real situations and to see a “big picture” rather than merely the details.
This focus on practical application is not something the GMAT invented. For example, business schools use case studies to teach students how to transfer theoretical knowledge to actual situations. Employers seek professionals who not only “know” but also “can”, and GMAT designs its questions accordingly. That is one reason why your examination will test not only your knowledge of English and math but also your capacity to reason about the problems presented through English and math.
Thus, even though learning or reviewing concepts from math, grammar, or logic might be straightforward, becoming proficient with the way the GMAT tests them requires practice, practice, and…more practice.
You get 183+ hours of representative practice
In the GMAT online database there are more than 5,500 GMAT practice questions that mirror the format and logic of real GMAT questions. Nine full-length CATs, pre-class and practice tests for every session, and the ability to generate your own tests give more than enough opportunity to satisfy any student’s need for GMAT practice. We have calculated that solving all our practice questions would give you around 183 hours of GMAT practice—certainly more than enough for most students!
What’s more, our testing interface is the one you will see on the GMAT. You get the same look, same functions, and same buttons on your GMAT online practice screen that you will get on the GMAT. The real test is already stressful enough; the last thing you need is additional stress from having to figure out how the thing works. After you practice with GMAT online, the interface on your actual test will be familiar, with screen, buttons, and question types that you understand. Getting ready in this way for the real test environment saves time, adds confidence, and helps you to focus on solving questions without technical distractions.
We provide a better way of practicing
Above all, we provide targeted practice. The traditional approach to practice is not enough. This is the view of students who have taken other courses before subscribing to GMAT online. From them we have learned that the normal practice options are not sufficient. After your first phase of GMAT preparation, you need targeted practice.
Our Test Generator allows you to focus on your weak points
In your final stage of GMAT preparation, simply solving all the practice questions you have left is a waste of time. To target your weak points and practice only the skills you most want to strengthen, we offer a unique tool called Test Generator. Using Test Generator, you can set specific test parameters such as question type, difficulty and number of questions, and category of questions you want to test. Since all the questions in our database are classified by difficulty level, question type, and the kind of skills they test, the Test Generator program will draw relevant questions from our database to create any test you define.
The classification of questions is very detailed and allows you to focus on your weak points. If you feel that absolute value equations are still causing problems, you don’t have to solve general math or algebra tests, hoping to come across a question that deals with absolute value equations. With GMAT online, you can create a test devoted entirely to those equations.
So does our powerful analytical system
Together with our powerful analytical system that analyzes all your mistakes and provides detailed charts that expose your strong and weak areas, Test Generator allows you to avoid wasting time on the things you already know and to focus on strengthening your weak areas.
The number of students looking for a reliable resource for GMAT practice is constantly increasing, and we have created a moderately priced GMAT practice plan for them. Whether you are new to GMAT or have taken other courses that did not provide you with sufficient practice, we have a preparation plan appropriate to your study priorities and your schedules.
