G.M.A.T - Got Me Anxious Totally

Monday April 18th, 2011 at 5:00 P.M. was my first day back to my GMAT grind.  To give you a brief history, I took a Kaplan online GMAT course (which was great) and for MLT had to take the test in January 2011 for final admission.  I took it, I’m glad I did…I wasn’t 100% ready though.   I know there is room for improvement.  So now I’m taking another course and re-studying...hopefully for the LAST time.

I don’t remember feeling this anxious before.

On one hand, I am relaxed because I have a score I’m slightly okay with using to apply, however the thought of going back into a Pearson testing center has me stressed.

In order to really get serious, I’m selecting a date and going to register ASAP in order to get my tail in gear and really grind.

What is in my arsenal?

Although I did make an investment in some items, a lot of my items were passed down from friends via mail.  So my biggest takeaway is USE your network so you can at least save a *little* on books and materials….to take away a tiny bit of the GMAT stress away.

Any other words of wisdom before I dive head first into my GMAT?  How do you handle the stress?

P.S Yes...I know... my acronym for the GMAT is corny lol

Motown - stress is normal and even good sometimes...keeps that fire lit under you! So don't be upset you are's a good thing, if you can control it.

My best tip for beating the stress was creating a schedule that planned out my life for the 6 weeks I studied...and - the hard part - sticking to it. This didn't just include the studying part, it had things like my workouts, and even my social life built in so I knew exactly when to anticipate times when I would/wouldn't have time to prep for the test. Having GMAT class twice a week really helped me keep myself in check too so I could monitor progress often.

Let me know if you want a version of my study plan! Good luck and always remember to keep yourself motivated by celebrating the little wins and progress often. You got this!! :o)

#CIQY I finally made a study schedule and it has calmed me a bit!! Its pretty aggressive but I'm thinking it will help me stay focused...even though I have loads of distractions right now. Thanks for the advice!
