Is there any effective strategy for preparing for the GMAT way in advance (like 1-2 or more years). I come from a non target, with so-so gpa. My GMAT is going to make or break me for MSF and MBA. I'm a decent test taker, but I need an awesome GMAT.
Let me illustrate what I mean by long-term strategy. If I had a few years to prepare for the SAT, I would memorize a massive amount of vocab words of the kind that you see on the test.. I would spend like one hour a week on it and would have significantly improved my vocabulary by the time of the test. Also, I might try to take some quantitative courses (not sure exactly which ones) that would improve my ability to reason through mathematical problems quickly.
Are there any strategies like this for the GMAT? Any ways to prepare myself far in advance (i.e. build vocabulary)
Thanks in advance, SB for helpful responses.
