A Treasure Trove of Tools and Techniques to Help You Conquer the GMAT Exam GAME PLAN FOR THE GMAT is based on a simple but powerful observation: Test-takers who score high on the GMAT exam do so primarily by understanding how to solve a finite number of the most important kinds of problems that appear on the GMAT. What are these important types of problems? The answer to this question is the basis of this book. In addition to comprehensive coverage of all seven major problem types including Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency, Sentence Correction, Critical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Analytical Writing, and Integrated Reasoning, this manual also provides in-depth analysis of over 200 problems. Whether youa€™re a candidate already enrolled in a test-prep course or are undertaking self-study, this book will serve as a rigorous skill-building study guide to help you conquer the math, verbal, analytical writing, and integrated reasoning sections of the exam. Studying for the math and verbal sections of the GMAT exam requires some 100 hours of study time. This booka€™s content is conveniently divided into topics, which require two to three hours of study time per day. Total study time will vary between 80 to 120 hours for the entire 40 days. *Track your progress using a specially designed 40-day checklist. *Take a€œownershipa€ of your exam and gain the confidence you need by building real skills. *Learn to identify the different types of math problems and the math concepts being tested. *Master the key rules of grammar and review diction, idioms, and style. *Prepare for the new Integrated Reasoning section with a targeted review of graphical data. *Succeed by knowing what makes each problem a€œticka€ and use analytical techniques to avoid a€œanswer trapsa€ and to eliminate common incorrect answer choices. Secret Recipe: Each hand-selected problem comes with a classification, snapshot, and chili rating. Classification serves to identify each problem according to category or sub-category. Snapshot highlights why that particular problem was chosen, including the underlying problem-solving principle or strategic approach. Chili rating helps candidates gauge the estimated difficulty level of a given problem. A single chili indicates that the estimated difficulty level of a given problem is a€œmilda€ (500 to 590 difficulty level), two chilies spell a€œhota€ (600 to 690 difficulty level), and three chilies signal a€œvery hota€ (700 or above difficulty level). By practicing with problems of varying levels of difficulty, candidates will learn to maintain discipline when solving easy but tricky problems and also to exercise flexibility when tackling harder problems. These latter problems require that a test-taker choose the best approach and look for time-saving shortcuts. a€œFinally, a book that helps you master those learning skills that are critical to success on the GMAT.a€ a€”Linda B.
