How One Hour Can Make A Difference in GMAT Test Prep

By BlogMgmt On Feb 15, 2018 In  Study Plans General GMAT 


Completing a certain number of study hours does not guarantee a particular GMAT score. If you're looking for a top GMAT score, you're of course going to need to put in the time. Studying for the GMAT is a serious time commitment, usually requiring a least two to three months of preparation. Most aspiring MBAs know what to study, but are unsure of how to make the appropriate time commitment to study. 

An older GMAT survey of MBA.com registrants showed a strong relationship between the hours spent on preparation and their score. The survey showed that students who scored a 700 or better averaged 114 GMAT studying hours. Those who scored from a 600 to a 690 averaged about 100 GMAT studying hours.

Using One-Hour Increments for GMAT Test Prep

One hour of focused study is worth more than two hours of distracted studying. If you have only one hour per day to study, make the most of that hour. Turn off the phone, the online chats, lock the door, and strictly focus on the GMAT test prep. That one hour needs to target areas that need the most help.

Many students become overwhelmed by trying to find the time they need to fit in all the studying they need to do. The biggest mistake test-takers make is only studying when they have a significant chunk of available time. Use the time you have to train your brain. At EmpowerGMAT, our online GMAT test prep gives students a quick practice when there is time for a short break or when they are on the go. Answering test-like questions on a computer is essential, even if you only have one hour to spare. 

Schedule Practice Tests

Set aside time at the end of every week to take regular GMAT practice tests. The one-hour increments of study you have taken during the week will help improve your thinking. The practice test will also help identify where you need to focus more attention during the week.
