Frequently Asked Questions
GMAT Test Preparation 101
The Graduate Management Admission Test (or GMAT) is the preferred standardized test of graduate business programs the world over. A GMAT score has three components: analytical writing, integrated reasoning, and the total multiple-choice score. The total score does not include the writing and integrated reasoning sections but is instead determined by performance on the math and verbal sections. The math section covers geometry, algebra, and combinatorics, and the verbal section features reading comprehension, logical reasoning, and grammar questions. The whole test is administered on a computer and is an adaptive test. This means is that if, for example, you are excellent at math, the math questions will become gradually more difficult as you answer questions correctly. For this reason, many test takers who are doing quite well move through the test feeling as though they are failing, because the questions eventually grow too difficult. A firm understanding of the nature of the content and construction of the adaptive test is paramount to achieving score goals on the GMAT. Inspirica’s GMAT tutors have studied this test inside and out and can help you navigate the challenges of this test. Many GMAT takers, for example, have not had a geometry lesson in four years or more, and noticing a bit of rust in these areas is completely natural! Your expert Inspirica tutor will help you brush up in areas that need it and lay a foundation for new material. Your tutor will also teach you how to best allocate your time and efforts to put yourself in a position to get the score you need!
