Many students seek for professional guidance when they prepare for the GMAT. But how does it help you to obtain the score that you are aiming for? In this blog we will show you 6 advantages of following a preparation course.

1. TO OBTAIN THE GMAT SCORE THAT YOU ARE AIMING FOR

Logically this is the biggest advantage. Research of the MBA, the organisation which composes the GMAT, states that 50% of the people who score higher that 500 were helped by a professional company. So, if you are aiming for a score higher than 500 it might be smart to follow a GMAT course. 

2. WORK IN A STRUCTURED MANNER

The resource of online study material seems to be endless. Besides that, you can choose from a variety of books to prepare for the GMAT. To find the right study material can be a time-consuming job, let alone the time it will take you to master the theory. Following a preparation course will set ou up with a weekly schedule and activiities to get started. Separate parts and subject will be taught in a logical order, which enables you to study in an efficient manner.

3. IT IS A GOOD INVESTMENT

As odd as it might sound, following a GMAT course can turn out to be a really good investment. It can even save you money. If you do not obtain the score that you are aiming for you will have to redo the GMAT exam. As it costs $250 to take the exam, not passing can become pricy. Besides that, following a GMAT course will save you time, as you will learn to study more efficiently. And since time is money…

4. GET TRAINED BY AN EXPERIENCED TUTOR

The courses are thought by experienced tutors, who possess extensive knowledge about the GMAT. Because of that they can give you the best tips and tricks. Besides that, the vast majority of the tutors have obtained a high GMAT score themselves. Therefore, they know exactly what difficulties you are having at the moment.

5. TIME MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

There are multiple aspects that make the GMAT a difficult exam. Firstly, the questions are of a higher difficulty than other exams. Besides that, the test is adaptive, and you must finish the questions in a limited amount of time. The latter is an aspect which is something that is hard to get used to when learning from books. But during a preparation course you will learn to adopt a time management strategy.

6. BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE

And last but not least. You might have heard one of the horror stories about the GMAT. A lot of people have studied for many hours, but still did not manage to get the score that they needed. Following a course will boost your confidence. As a result, you will be less nervous when you take the GMAT exam.

PICK THE COURSE THAT SUITS YOUR SITUATION

There are many different preparation courses. It is possible to follow group courses for the Verbal and Quantitative sections. During those courses you will get an explanation of the essential theory and you will practice with questions. These courses will fit you perfectly if you have just started your preparation on the GMAT. If you are already closer to your exam date, 1-on-1 tutoring might be a better fit.
