Global View ‐ Taking The GMAT (C0320)
Ash: I can’t seem to progress up the career ladder no matter how hard I try and I have been here for 2 years already!
Mindy: Well, have you thought of getting an MBA? I heard it does wonders in getting you to the top.
Ash: An MBA hey. . . well my degree wasn’t in business, the business schools won’t be interested in me.
Mindy: Nonsense! The business schools measure your ability through a test called GMAT.
Ash: GMAT? What does that stand for and what will the test contain?
Mindy: Graduate Management Admission Test, it contains three parts; Analytical Writing Assessment, the Quantitative section, and the Verbal section. Not only does the test mark you on the number of questions answered but also on the difficulty.
Ash: Okay this sounds a little tough, how am I supposed to practice for this?
Mindy: Up to you, you could have a one on one session with a tutor or group sessions, you can also use free or private computer software. Going to church might help as well!
Ash: No matter what I do I’m going to ace this test and go on to become a corporate fat cat!
Mindy: Umm.. . That’s the spirit!
