The engineer (and others) and the GMAT

February 09, 2012 MBA Center Blog

The financier is widely considered to be "over-represented" among MBA candidates.  This is true to some extent, but it is ironic:  those whose initial higher education and career were in finance are generally less well-poised to score highly on the GMAT than are engineers.

 

The engineer has an obvious advantage over the average test-taker in mathematical prowess, obviously, but it is more than that.  Engineers tend to come from educational backgrounds very rich in logical and scientific analysis, so they not only KNOW more math, but they are also better able to pick apart and reassemble problems in different ways, very efficiently.  This is why engineers often need less time than many people to master the GMAT Quantitative section:  they are able to sort out all the different angles of the problems they are working on and, most importantly, generally good at recognizing and correcting their own mistakes quite rapidly.  Thus, while the engineer may not be overly familiar with the "discrete" topics (number properties, manipulative statistics, sequences, counting, probability), he can learn them fairly quickly.

GMAT Expertise - What is so Critical about the Critical Reading on the GMAT? Part 3

September 07, 2011 MBA Center Blog by Zuzanna Jaskiewicz

by Nicholas Moses


The last two parts (read part 1 and part 2) in this series talked about Critical Reading as it applies to respectively Sentence Corrections and Critical Reasoning.  Logically, you might have thought that this next one would discuss Reading Comprehension, right?

Game of The Month [September 2011]

September 06, 2011 MBA Center Blog by Zuzanna Jaskiewicz


Here is a PS practice question that will nicely illustrate the point we made above.  Pay close attention to what the question asks and mathematize the information very carefully.

***

The long-distance phone company Advanced Technology charges $0.20 per minute on each long-distance phone call.  The long-distance phone company Brett Stevens charges $1.50 for the first six minutes of long-distance calling that a subscriber makes each month, then $0.15 per minute thereafter.  For what number of minutes of long-distance calls would the phone bill for one month be the same for either Advanced Technology or Brett Stevens?

GMAT Expertise - What is so Critical about the Critical Reading on the GMAT? Part 2

by Nicholas Moses


Last month, we discussed the importance of semantics in GMAT Sentence Corrections—why one must read a sentence with a feel for what it actually says and seriously asks whether what it says makes sense.  We said that this was important all over the Verbal section; indeed, it becomes more and more subtle the more complicated the questions get.

Game of The Month [June 2011]


A tricky question by Nicholas Moses, Head Instructor at the MBA Center Paris.


Here is a SC practice question that will nicely illustrate the points we made above.  As you scan through the sentence and answer choices, remember to ask yourself:  what is the author trying to say?  What does he actually end up saying?  Why does he fail?

GMAT Expertise - What is so Critical about the Critical Reading on the GMAT? Part 1

by Nicholas Moses


Many students who come to the MBA Center for GMAT classes, especially private classes, need help exclusively in the Verbal section.  This is not surprising, since the bulk of our business is with a non-Anglophone clientele.  All the same, successfully mastering the Verbal section involves the same sort of mental flexibility and logical connection of ideas as does mastering the Quant section.  This is even true for Sentence Correction ("SC") questions, the mastery of which requires a little bit more complex brain power than the correct idiom and diction or smooth, stylistic fluency tested on the TOEFL or TOEIC.

To be sure, there are a fair few SC questions that do test idiom and style—so it is still important to know that "not only" goes with "but also," that "number" is for countable nouns and "amount" is for mass nouns and that active is usually preferable to passive—, but those are not the bulk of the questions.  If you want to reach that coveted scaled score of 40 on the Verbal section, you must get comfortable with the semantics and the syntax of the English language.
