GMAT Problem Solving – GMAT Strategies

One of the biggest mistakes GMAT test-takers make is that they try to solve GMAT math problems the way their 7th grade algebra teacher would have taught them to. Do you remember your junior high school math teachers? So do we…and it sort of makes us shudder!

The good news is that there is a better way on the GMAT. The traditional way of approaching many GMAT problem solving questions is often the least effective and least efficient way to get a right answer, which of course is your ultimate goal. Why set up an algebraic equation and solve for “x” when you can use the answer choices to your advantage, for example? Your goal should be to get easy and difficult GMAT math questions correct with as little effort in as little time as possible — and this course will help you to do just that!

It may just be the most important and impactful lesson you learn in your preparation for the GMAT, so prepare to shift your thinking and boost your GMAT math score immediately.
