How far into your studying for the GMAT did you take your first full practice exam?

Day 1, got to set a baseline


Ah ok, taking mine after 5 days. Kind of nervous


I took the diagnostic test, and it's pretty clear quant is my weakness. It's weird how much an alternative education in elementary & middle school has hindered me in math.


Graduated in top 10% of my class in engineering and still got 70th percentile on GMAT quant, it's just practice! You got this!


Any tips on staying motivated @AC1

You're still good, most important thing is to figure out where your score is early on, where you want your score to be at the end and do periodic checks to make sure your score is improving to confirm the studying is helping

Agree with Day 1. Might as well see what areas are strengths vs weaknesses. Makes studying a lot more targeted.

When you do day 1 def make sure you try and replicate the test taking environment


Thanks A2 🙃

What's your target score?

700+ would be swell.

Just put in my two weeks leaving a super toxic work culture, going to a role that I am super excited about. Any tips on how to cleanse all the bad juju from a bad work culture so that I don’t bring that trauma (for lack of a better word) with me into my next role? I’m going to a 35% pay bump and am realizing some serious imposter syndrome is setting in about this new job and I haven’t even started yet.
Thank you!!!
