Eg make sure you know the meanings of all the other choices too. You will improve the most that way. Pretty true regardless of the standardized exam.
Also give yourself 20%-25% less time to do each problem than you have on the exam.
Yeah, definitely working with these things in mind. I feel the biggest challenge is to remain calm during the actual exam, and not spend too much time on any one particular question.

Most firms will recruit at their local MBA school.
True. But I am not really looking to apply to MBA programs just yet, will be getting some work experience for the next few years. Just getting the GMAT under my belt early, while I'm still relatively fresh out of undergrad and haven't lost that test taking intuition. Then depending on my score and other factors, I'll decide from there.
