Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
At one point I wrote out all my tips for how to pass the GMAT adn I was going to publish them online.
I studied non stop for 2 months and ended up with 700.
What tips can I remember
1) Have a good title for your essay
2) Take your time on the 1st ten questions or you will never recover.
3) Buy a book on grammar. I found the perfect book can't speak highly enough of it.
4) Memorize the pythagorean triangles cold. They only used 4 or 5 variations of them. This will save you major minutes on the exam.
I am studying off of the Manhattan GMAT guides, which in my opinion do a fair job covering all the topics and strategies. After that I guess it's just a matter of doing as many problems as you can, and in timed/pressure conditions.
I used to tutor people in GMAT/LSAT/MCAT. General strategy for success is that whatever resource you use, spend about 25% of time "learning" and 75% of time doing problems. If you get an answer right OR wrong, go over the explanation if they exist and make sure you completely understand WHY every other answer was wrong and yours was right. 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.
My other advice to you is what school to go to. Don't get caught up in the rankings. Decide what city you want to work in and then go to school in the best school in that city. That is the best advice I never took.
Most firms will recruit at their local MBA school.
