Hi Guyz,

Improving GMAT scores can become a herculean task for most of the aspirants. These Are top 7 tips to improve your GMAT Score from the 400's to 700's:

1. Practice to the Hilt:
It can be rightly said that practice makes an MBA aspirant successful. Take as many practice tests as you can and try to improve your GMAT score in each attempt. At the same time, never rest on your laurels. Keep on practicing till the test day.

2. Make A Strategy:
If you really want to focus on your GMAT preps, plan a strategy and follow it religiously. Make a study schedule, read lots of relevant materials, and also, leave aside some time for leisure.

3. Study the GMAT Format Intricately:
It is extremely important to understand the format of questions asked at GMAT along with concepts, scoring system, test format, and every other thing related to this coveted test. If you can understand it precisely, you can pass it with flying colors.

4. Choose The Right Study Material:
You must select the books that can help you in your preparation instead of disorienting you. Since you are looking to improve your score, don’t waste your precious time on random stuff.

5. Practice Speed Reading:
Speed-reading (or, shall we say reading in speed?) of all the questions with accuracy is extremely crucial to enhance your scores. So, work on this skill and improve it with constant practice.

6. Management of Time:
This is your key to get success in GMAT. For an increment in score, you must learn to manage your time properly. Don’t waste too much time solving complex problems. At the same time, don’t rush to attempt easy questions. In both cases, you may make some careless mistakes that you can’t afford.

7. Focus On Your Weak Points:
Try to analyze your weak spots and concentrate on them. If you find yourself improving in these areas, you are on the right path. If you can’t, you must figure out the flaws in your preparations and focus again.

Remove all the self-doubts and stay confident. Never vacillate your test dates. You can certainly improve your score to any level if you can follow these tips and study well.
