If you’re planning on applying to business school, there’s a lot to consider. Getting your MBA makes you an attractive job candidate and puts you in line for some of the highest paying jobs available; but before you finish your application, you need to take the Graduate Management Admission Test, or GMAT.
The GMAT is a computer-delivered exam, and the higher your score, the more attractive you are to the most prestigious graduate business programs. The GMAT website offers example preparation timelines, but working with a qualified instructor or tutor puts you in the best position possible to excel, as time management skills do not come naturally to everyone.
Getting ready to take your GMAT prep course in Montreal is easier than you think, as long as you know where to look. The right test prep centre will offer a number of key resources, including pre-course assessment, classes, and individual one-one one tutoring.
There is a culture of fear around the GMAT, but seeking out a prep course is a great way to calm your own fears, and take a step back from the noise of anxiety that surrounds the test. Quantum Test Prep’s approach to GMAT preparation is that the GMAT is a standardized test based on standardized content. When you are prepared to give the standardized answers the GMAT is looking for, the better your results will be.
The best test prep services understand that, as with preparing for any exam, quantity and quality of instruction matter. Most courses offer as few as 20 hours of prep time for the GMAT. Quantum’s ultimate GMAT course offers approximately 100 hours working with an instructor to break down the test content, including the quantitative, verbal, and integrated reasoning skills schools and employers are looking for.
When you choose a test preparation service, the quality of instruction matters when you’re making the commitment to spend your weekends and evenings in preparation. In a good test prep class, you will be working with an instructor whose full-time job is to help students achieve their best results. These tutors scored in the top 2-3 percentile when they took the exam themselves, and know how to attain and demonstrate mastery of the test content. If, when you take the GMAT, you don’t get the results you’re looking for, there is a free course repeat guarantee.
In addition to taking the GMAT, you may be expected to interview with the admissions committee. An interview invitation is often extended to those candidates the school is most interested in having in their program. Some of the most common interview questions ask about your resume and what you would bring to the program. Top test prep centres will offer interview preparation on top of regular class time. With an MBA admissions interview coach, you can be prepared to answer these and other questions confidently and succinctly, and combined with your improved test scores, you’ll be prepared to purge all test anxiety and prepare for your new path toward an MBA.
