PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
values a unique approach to learning and studying for the GMAT, promoting a recent article
in Business Week that highlights effective GMAT study strategies, namely: "Do new problems regularly and learn takeaways, not facts." According to the report, students' minds are trained throughout years of schooling to remember facts and to memorize structures: "It's why you may have gotten As for four years of high school in Spanish but not be able to understand a minute of Telemundo, or why you may have aced math tests throughout your K-12 years but be a little worried about adding and subtracting fractions on the GMAT."
The professionals of Smartekedu.com concur, adding that memorization is no longer effective. "Learning by memorization may help you get through your Spanish test, but it doesn't necessarily mean you will retain any of the information." The San Diego-based business extends a program with personalized software to help students prepare for tests such as the SAT, ACT, GMAT and GRE, along with vocabulary boosting exercises for young children. The highly acclaimed program focuses on matching users with their appropriate learning style, making studying as efficient as possible.
The article expounds on the issues regarding memorization in terms of the GMAT: "Consider the example of 'remainders,' a concept that comes up regularly on the GMAT. If you're memorizing from a flashcard, you'll likely remember that: Dividend divided by divisor equals quotient plus remainder. That's useful, but not necessarily sufficient for success on the GMAT." To do well on the GRE, the pros at Smartekedu.com advise students to invest in their own personalized learning style through the program and to remain calm.
"Tests like the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and so forth bring a lot of pressure. Even the most comfortable study-oriented students don't necessarily know how to prepare. The first step is to cope with your anxiety for the big day. Take plenty of practice exams, so you are familiar with the format and how certain questions are worded."
The article adds, "While many of the study habits that worked in high school and college will help you on the GRE, the GMAT is a new beast, one that focuses more on application than knowledge. So to be successful on the GMAT, you'll need to push yourself in that direction by continuing to test your knowledge on new problems." The makers of Smartekedu.com encourage students to think conceptually and not to waste time memorizing a set of rules and processes.
