Be a GMAT Instructor

The following is a list of some miscellaneous tips and tricks we've accumulated in teaching over the years of preparing people for the GMAT. Some will work better than others and not all of them will work for everybody. However, we think you'll find many of them to be very valuable as you prepare for your test.

We would definitely recommend reading our Game Plan if you're new to the site. Also, remember that many of the best secrets for preparing for the GMAT can be found in the books on our Recommended List.

Be a GMAT Instructor

Okay, we're not talking about applying to work as an actual instructor for a test prep company. However, many people miss out on one of the most fundamental truths of knowledge when they study for their GMAT: The best way to learn something is to teach it! Swallow your pride and find a spouse, significant other, brother, cousin, mother, cat, etc. and TEACH them some GMAT.

You might want to start small. Explain to them how the Computer Adaptive format works or even what's going to be included on the test. Then pick an area in which you feel most comfortable and teach them how to do it. If that progresses well, try tackling an area that's particularly difficult for you. It will be tough, but you'll be absolutely amazed at how much you improve.

One important note: Don't just teach them in an impromptu fashion. Prepare for the sessions as you would if you were going to teach a class full of people. The preparing will help you quite a bit in itself and it will make the teaching bearable (if not downright enjoyable!). Also, find a time and place that's quiet and where you won't be disturbed. Many libraries have conference rooms you can reserve that fit the bill perfectly. They might even have a chalkboard or a whiteboard so you can feel like an actual instructor!
