There are two key elements when preparing for the GMAT test:

First, you should use a GMAT test study guide, or a set of GMAT test flashcards. This help ensure that you understand the test material and concepts that are covered.

Second, you should test yourself on GMAT practice tests so that you are familiar with the test process. Many students that know the material will struggle when taking the test, simply because they aren’t good test takers and do not have much experience with taking important standardized tests.
