If you haven’t noticed, the GMAT is a bit non-intuitive and is kinda confusing to try and figure out.  Here are three things you should know about the GMAT to help it make more sense to you.

Did you know?

The English and math covered on the GMAT is overwhelming stuff you learned by freshman and sophomore year in HIGH SCHOOL?!  It’s not really what they ask, but how they ask it that makes the test hard.

Did you know?

Regardless if you score a 530 or a 730 on the test, you’re going to get about 1/3 of the question wrong on the quant and verbal sections?  It’s not really about how many questions you get right or wrong, it’s how hard they are.

Did you know?

There tends to be specific markers in each question (on both the quant and verbal sections) that, if you know how to decode them, pretty much guide you through question?  The test is really about giving you information and then seeing if you can make the logical leaps or inferences to get to the next step and then the next etc, until you can solve the problem.  The tests tend to use the same logical set ups over and over so after you recognize them, you can nail them.
