The GMAT Amsterdam Bootcamp
GMAT Amsterdam can help you work towards your desired score in different ways. One of the options is by following the Bootcamp. In this weeks’ blog we will explain the general idea of the course, and why this course suits some students better than others.
What does this course cover?
At the beginning of every lesson, you will receive a booklet. The teacherwill use these booklets as a starting point during the whole course. But you will have to use the Official Guide as well. Versions of the past three years are sufficient*. During one of the four days, the focus will be on the Verbal section of the GMAT. The remainder of the days will focus on the Quantitative section of the GMAT. Every subject will be introduced by a short theoretical explanation. After this theoretical explanation, you will practice with questions in timed sets. The subjects that will be covered are listed below and sorted by day. The order of the days might be different during the Bootcamp.
- Introduction of GMAT;
- Data Sufficiency Strategy;
- Exponents and Roots;
- Linear, Quadratic and Exponential Inequalities.
- Coordinate Plane;
- 3D Figures;
- Integers, Odds, and Evens;
- Prime Factorization;
- Mean, Median, Mode, Range, Standard Deviation;
- Percentage Change and Interest Problems;
- Digits and Decimals;
- Ratio Problems;
- Overlapping Sets;
- Rate Problems;
- Sentence Correction;
- Timed Sets;
- Critical Reasoning;
- Reading Comprehension.
The GMAT Amsterdam Bootcamp course is taught in four days. We bear in mind that most of the participants are either students or have a fulltime job, so this course is spread over two successive weekends from 10.00 until 17.00
The Bootcamp vs. the essential courses
There are some big differences between the essential courses and the Bootcamp. First of all, the Bootcamp is a more practical course. The focal point is to practice with questions in timed-sets. Doing so, you will have a clear insight about which subject still need more practice. In general, the participants of the GMAT Amsterdam Bootcamp have been preparing themselves for some time, and they aim for a 600+ score. Therefore the difficulty of the questions is higher than during the regular courses. The second difference is the duration of the lessons. Seven hours of listening and practicing requires dedication and perseverance. Finally, one of the differences is when to follow the course. The essential courses are intended for people who are at the beginning of their preparation. Whereas the Bootcamp is suitable for people who are closer to their GMAT exam.
