Hello from The Princeton Review Thailand
GMAT TALK

Talking about MBA admissions, we cannot forget the GMAT. The GMAT & TOEFL play an important role in applying to Business Programs especially in the USA. Today, Richard Swartz, our GMAT instructor with a Master Degree from Stanford University, will share his nine-year experience and guide you to the GMAT.

TPR: Hi! Richard. Thanks a lot for giving us a chance to talk with you today. We all know that many business schools in the USA require applicants to submit the GMAT score. However, some students are nervous taking the GMAT and some have practiced the test by themselves but cannot do well. Could you give some advice to students to help them improve their GMAT scores?

RICHARD: Improving your GMAT score requires a balance of knowledge and strategy. While you can often get the knowledge you want from reading books, it's hard to change your strategy without help from a teacher or tutor.

TPR: Is taking Practice Tests the best way to prepare for the GMAT??

RICHARD: Taking practice tests is very important part of preparing for the GMAT. Performing well on the GMAT requires concentration and stamina. However, practice has to be balanced with knowledge and strategy.

TPR: How do you work with a weak student/slow learner in your class? How do you encourage such a student?

RICHARD: Everyone can improve their GMAT score once they learn the reasons why the wrong answers are wrong and the right answers are right. I encourage people to keep a chart of their performance, so they can look back and see which questions they got wrong and why. This lets them focus on their weak areas.

TPR: We have heard a bit about the Next Generation GMAT in June 2012. What do you think about that? And what would you recommend to the students about the Next Generation GMAT?

RICHARD: The new GMAT will still be scored from 200-800. However, there will only be one essay instead of two, and there will a new section called "Integrated Reasoning" which will mostly be about charts and graphs. The essays and the Integrated Reasoning section will be scored separately from the rest of the GMAT. I would definitely recommend taking the GMAT before it changes next June. The devil you know is safer than the devil you don't know..

TPR: Thank you for spending time with us, Richard. It was a wonderful talk!
