Studying on your own for the GMAT might have you wondering where to begin and what material to cover. Enrolling in a Madison GMAT course gives you access to a dynamic online learning platform led by a qualified instructor and filled with peers eager to learn. Collaborating with peers in a classroom has shown to increase retention rates and deepen understanding of the subjects being taught. Having the ability to break the GMAT down by section and learning the different types of questions to expect will provide invaluable insight as you approach exam day.
What could a Madison GMAT class help me review?
The GMAT is separated into four sections: Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and the Analytical Writing Assessment. During the 3.5 hours you are allotted to complete the exam, you will be expected to showcase a wide array of test-taking and scholarly skills. While you may be confident in your aptitude for mathematics, excelling in all four sections of the exam is necessary to achieve a desirable score. Enrolling in a Madison GMAT class can provide you with the instruction needed to learn how to approach the various sections of the exam by helping you build foundational test-taking skills and improving your subject knowledge. Though you will have the option to choose one of three different configurations of test sections, we'll start with the Integrated Reasoning section.
In the Integrated Reasoning section, you will be asked to interpret and synthesize data from multiple sources and to then use said data to evaluate and answer questions. Here you will be asked to answer four different question types, including multi-source reasoning, graphic interpretation, table analysis, and two-part analysis. Success in this section of the exam is measured by your ability to solve problems, think critically, and draw meaningful conclusions. You will have 30 minutes to complete 12 questions.
The Quantitative Reasoning section measures your ability to reason mathematically, solve quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data. There are 31 multiple-choice questions in this section that cover problem solving and data sufficiency. The problem-solving questions test your ability to use analytical and logical reasoning skills to solve problems, while the data sufficiency questions measure your aptitude for problem analysis and data relevancy. You will have 62 minutes to complete this section.
The Verbal Reasoning section of the GMAT is constructed to test your skills in analyzing arguments, your ability to read critically, and your technical command of the English language. This portion of the exam is an opportunity for you to illustrate your reading comprehension skills, your fluency in making inferences from the information presented in passages, and your ability to think critically by answering three types of questions: reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction. You will have 65 minutes to complete 36 multiple-choice questions.
In the Analytical Writing Assessment portion of the GMAT, you will be asked to evaluate an argument by writing a convincing, analytical response within a 30-minute timeframe. Success in this section is measured by your quality of writing, your ability to organize original ideas, provide insightful critiques, and succinctly execute your response.
How do Madison GMAT courses help me prepare for my exam?
Preparing for an exam as vast and varied as the GMAT can be an intimidating experience. While you may feel confident in your Quantitative Reasoning abilities, you might recognize shortcomings in your ability to coherently construct an essay for the Analytical Writing Assessment section. Participating in a Madison GMAT course allows you a welcoming learning space where you can discuss and work on critical thinking, organizing and planning an essay, and improving your quality of writing. If you are struggling with analyzing data from multiple sources, you can schedule one-on-one time with your course instructor to improve on synthesizing data and information. The ability to connect in real time with instructors and peers provides you with the immediacy and intimacy of an in-person classroom. You can receive immediate, specific answers to your questions, as well as live troubleshooting if you encounter a tricky concept. Your instructor can work to understand your learning style and utilize appropriate resources in order to enhance your comprehension.
Enrolling in a Madison GMAT course is a good way to structure and parcel out your studies. Starting from scratch might have you feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Following a customized curriculum set forth in an online class adds detail and structure to your study plan, allowing you to approach the GMAT decisively and confidently. If you are to the point in your studies or career where you are seriously considering your MBA, chances are you've already invested a large amount of time and money in pursuit of your educational goals. Varsity Tutors can help you maximize your potential by helping you to fortify your perceived areas of weakness, positioning you for success come exam day.

Aaron: Madison GMAT course instructor
I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.

John-Michael: Madison GMAT course instructor
...I was a professor for 20 years. I taught at a number of institutions, including Bard and the University of California. I then left my professorship to start my own business, but a part of me still wants to teach! I like to figure out new and better ways to activate a student's talents, and I love figuring out how to adjust my methods to suit each student's individual abilities and needs.... I would introduce myself and speak a bit informally with the student about what he is like as a person, what he enjoys, how he feels about school, what he feels he excels at, and what he feels needs help with.
