Started GMAT study and so far have been doing very well on “Foundational Math Skills”. Is this a promising sign or am I getting carried away?

Take a practice test now


Take an untimed practice test without moving on until you're confident in the answer. See how you score in that. Once you start hitting your target score, start taking timed exams.


I only started a few days ago...but do you recommend taking a blind practice test and then working backwards on topics to focus on?

You have a lot more to go. The foundation is just the foundation to build upon.

Should I do that before I move further into my studying? Am 1 week in


It’s a good idea to take a practice test cold at the very beginning of prep, so you can see your baseline and easily identify weak areas

I would work on mastering as much as you can until you get your ideal score before you start taking a timed test. The GMAT Bible was great for me, because it was brief and succinct, and broke down what I needed to know for each concept.

I’m 3 years into my job and while my effort/pace/ambition hasn’t slowed, my attitude has changed drastically over the past year. I’ve gradually found myself growing more and more cynical about the little things, and feeling underappreciated for all the thoughtfulness and time I put into my work. The thought of taking vacation gives me anxiety because I know nobody will cover my role. Someone tell me I’m not alone?
