    A Last Few GMAT Paper Attempting Strategies

    • The problem-solving questions tend to have choices that reflect computational mistakes, i.e., 2+2 =5. Always write down your calculation and then check it.
    • Never leave a question unanswered. GMAT grades it as wrong. For every wrong answer, the test gives you an easier question that has fewer credits. Lower credit questions equal to a lower GMAT score.
    • If you don’t know the answer to a question, don’t take a random guess. Out of the given choices, try to eliminate at least two. From the remaining, make an educated guess. It will improve the probability of you selecting the right answer. 
    • Once answered, you cannot go back and review a question. Therefore, be sure of your choice.
    • Don't spend too much time on one question. If it’s been three minutes, then the best course is to make an educated guess and move on.
