Foster a Growth Mindset to Score High in GMAT Focus Verbal

Mindset plays an important role in our GMAT Focus Verbal prep and our performance on test day. A growth mindset is characterized by the belief that we are capable of developing ourselves and improving our basic skills.

In other words, we recognize that our abilities are not fixed. Such a mindset can help us to master Verbal Reasoning by giving us confidence that, whatever our current skill level, we can develop stronger skills with time and effort.

There are many things you were probably once not so great at that you’re now quite skilled in. You may even be an expert in some of those things. GMAT Focus Verbal is no different. If you consider all of the new things you’ve learned over your lifetime, you can see quite clearly that you don’t have to start off being great at something in order to become great at it.

Consider also that many, many GMAT Focus test-takers have made substantial increases in their Verbal scores. There is no reason that you can’t achieve something similar to what they achieved.
Remember, every time you learn a new Verbal concept or strategy, every time you work through a tough practice question until the end, you’re developing new skills and getting better at GMAT Focus Verbal.
So, foster a growth mindset, and then put in the work to grow!
