GMAT Overview

The GMAT is a computer adaptive test used for admission to graduate management programs Accepted by more than 7,000 management programs in India, the US, and other countries, GMAT® is a computer adaptive test that assesses analytical writing, quantitative and verbal skills of students applying for MBA and similar courses to a graduate school of business. Based on reasoning skills in both verbal and quantitative areas and also tests your analytical writing ability. The Verbal and Quantitative sections on the GMAT follow computer adaptive testing (adaptive by a question). The sections start with a moderate difficulty level question and change per your performance. If you answer questions incorrectly, the next question will be easier questions but if you show high accuracy, you will see difficult questions. Out of the 4 sections on the GMAT, only the Verbal and Quant sections are computer-adaptive. You cannot skip questions or go back to a question once you have submitted the response for that question.

How does the GMAT test vocabulary?

Are you preparing for the GMAT? Do you find it difficult to deal with the vocabulary section? Let us try to understand the GMAT vocabulary better. The very first thing you need to know is that the GMAT does not test you on vocabulary directly. You need to have strong reading, writing, and communication skills to ace the test. Be sure that you won’t be asked to demonstrate your knowledge of highly sophisticated vocabulary, so you don’t need to worry too much about memorizing the GMAT vocabulary. What you need to have is a good knowledge of high-school and college-level English vocabulary if you really want to ace the verbal section.

How to improve your GMAT vocabulary

Even if you find it challenging to master the English language, still, there are ways to improve your language and ace the vocabulary. Let us find out how.

Read stories

Reading stories is one of the best ways to learn new words. But for that, you need to know the meaning of words in a particular context. Start from a basic level to develop interest. However, there are many reading level assessments available, so choose and refer to the one that works the best for you.

Make the best use of your flashcards

Using Flashcards for improving vocabulary is a convenient way to approach your GMAT preparation. Make new words relate to you, your friends, family, and personal occasions as this will help you to retain the vocabulary for a longer time.   Though the GMAT score alone cannot guarantee admission into a B-school, it is one of the major factors taken into consideration.
