Welcome to the GMAT. Were we saying this to you in person, we might duck after speaking
those words. For many people, there’s nothing remotely welcoming about the GMAT. To many
business school applicants, the test appears to be the most painful hurdle they must clear in
their admissions process, and the one for which their work experience has left them the least
Yet still they come: tens of thousands of people take the GMAT every year, subjecting
themselves to three and a half hours of questions about linear equations, statistics, logic,
English syntax, and just what the writer of that obscure passage meant by “shibboleth.” The
GMAT can be irritating, but like it or not, it’s an unavoidable bump on the path to an MBA.
And it doesn’t have to be your enemy; a high score on the GMAT can help pave the way to a spot
in a top business school, which could lead to a very lucrative and rewarding career in brand
management, consulting, investment banking, starting your own business . . . but we’re
getting ahead of ourselves. You know why you have to take the GMAT. It’s our business to help
you make your GMAT score a strong point on your application.
