2007年一戰GMAT
                                                                               
距離第一次考GMAT已經有三年,那時候跟同學一起去美加補習,
                                                                               
補完習之後自己斷斷續續唸,最後在2007年初考了第一次,考試成績670 (M50 V31)
                                                                               
現在回想起來當初的時間和準備心態上沒有很充足,考試前心理壓力很大很焦躁...
                                                                               
考完之後只覺得已經不想再碰這個東西了...短時間內也就沒有打算再考
                                                                               
2010年二戰GMAT
                                                                               
畢業後工作一段時間,出國唸書的想法愈來愈強烈,興起再考一次看看的念頭
                                                                               
看過板上的心得,這次選擇到GMAT精修班再加強自己,感謝A兔教的重要考試觀念,
                                                                               
此外也非常感謝wayshawn大在板上分享的檔案,皆讓我獲益良多!
                                                                               
以下是這次針對各個部份做教材跟經驗分享,供大家參考:
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
數學
                                                                               
推薦教材:機經
                                                                               
這部份相信很多人程度比我好很多,因為身為文組的我數學底子真的不是特別好...orz
                                                                               
準備方式基本上是以機經為主,考前把題目仔細都算過,難的題目特別標起來多算幾遍
                                                                               
不過有些機經題目的完整度不是很高,看的時候一頭霧水也不知道算出來對不對,
為了避免有誤解,那些題目我大都刪去不看了~
                                                                               
考試遇到機經的機率真的還滿高,這次也有遇到好幾題,個人覺得值得好好看!
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
邏輯
                                                                               
這部份認真的說起來,進步的關鍵我覺得是工作跟人生經驗的累積...XDD
                                                                               
我知道聽起來很怪,但可能是因為工作之後,
                                                                               
很多事情要在別人似是而非的道理中捍衛自己的觀點,所以不知不覺邏輯變比較清楚:P
                                                                               
二戰準備時,很多以前覺得難作答的題目現在變得可以抓到關鍵!
                                                                               
                                                                               
不過除了這個之外,還是有推薦的準備方法給大家參考~
                                                                               
推薦教材:OG12th+PP+wayshawn大分享檔案
                                                                               
OG是一定要唸的重要教材,OG12th的整體講解都比當初一戰唸的OG11th清楚多了,
推薦大家唸OG12th的內容!
                                                                               
另外建議唸OG的時候直接用電腦不要用紙本,
                                                                               
一戰那時我很多教材用紙本唸,考試的時候不是很習慣一直看螢幕,
                                                                               
這次二戰嚴格執行用電腦做練習,熟悉度大大提升!
                                                                               
                                                                               
PP的部份是參考wayshawn大的檔案,用分類題型做練習
                                                                               
練習的方式是,在做PP的當下把自己覺得每一題每個選項錯在哪裡都記錄在excel檔
                                                                               
檢討的時候參考對照wayshawn大分享的檔案,做久了會比較抓得到考點在哪邊
                                                                               
                                                                               
另外A兔的課也讓我在邏輯上面有突破,
                                                                               
原本的我explain/填空/BF都很容易寫錯,但是聽過A兔的講解之後,
                                                                               
這些特定題型的正確率和速度都有提升!
                                                                               
閱讀
                                                                               
推薦教材:眾文托福分類單字(TOEFL MUST WORD 5000)(黃色書皮)
                                                                               
看了很多板上的心得分享都推薦這本單字書,
                                                                               
這次二戰的時候拿來唸,覺得真的有幫助! 尤其有幫助的是對我的閱讀部份
                                                                               
                                                                               
記得一戰的時候閱讀是我非常大的障礙,覺得文章好難看不懂,
                                                                               
考試的時候再加上緊張,一直來回重複看就是讀不進去,作答時間有很多浪費在這邊...
                                                                               
                                                                               
這本單字書的設計前半段是主題式閱讀文章,後半段是分類單字
                                                                               
其中主題式閱讀很有幫助,因為GMAT文章的範圍大多像這本書涵蓋的ex:歷史、考古、
                                                                               
生物、地質科學...等內容,唸過主題式閱讀之後對這些題目相關單字會有基礎的認識
推薦教材:OG12th+PP+wayshawn大的檔案
                                                                               
(其實verbal都是推薦這三個教材啦~)
                                                                               
因為一戰在閱讀上花的時間太多,二戰準備的時候我特別關注做題的時間,
                                                                               
練習題目時把看完文章和做每一題的時間都分別記錄下來,對自己做題速度有基本認識
                                                                               
                                                                               
檢討的時候會回到文章,用A兔教的文章結構把內容做分段,寫下文章大綱
                                                                               
並參考對照wayshawn大的檔案,釐清自己的錯題或不理解的地方
                                                                               
                                                                               
其中A兔教的區塊閱讀&回文定位法對於我做閱讀的方式也有很大的幫助,
                                                                               
之前在美加的時候,覺得徐老師教得很認真很仔細,對於語文能力的培養有幫助,
                                                                               
但是在時間有限的考試時間下,對我而言真的很難做到仔細分析整篇文章...
                                                                               
但如果是先用文章組織架構的角度下去看文章,做題目遇到細節題再回文章中仔細看
                                                                               
細節相關部份,對我而言比較節省時間,速度有提升!
語法
                                                                               
推薦教材:OG12th+PP+wayshawn大的檔案
                                                                               
不推薦教材:白勇語法
                                                                               
特別講一下白勇語法的部份,之前聽說白勇語法對於SC的提升很有幫助,
                                                                               
所以這次我在開始寫OG/PP之前,花了很多時間終於把白勇從頭到尾寫完了,
                                                                               
但是等到開始寫OG,才發現怎麼很多馬上刪掉的選項裡面竟然是標準答案...
                                                                               
                                                                               
所以語法的部份還是最推薦OG+PP,畢竟這是最符合出題方向和精神的教材,
                                                                               
OG的解釋也是最符合官方認為對或錯的準則,
                                                                               
後來真的發現,答案可能不見得是最完美正確的選項,而是相對正確的選項,
                                                                               
所以個人認為還是以官方的東西為主最實在
練習的方式同樣是在做OG/PP時,把自己覺得每一題每個選項錯在哪裡都記錄在excel檔
                                                                               
檢討的時候OG參考對照CD上的OG12th菜鳥,
                                                                               
PP參考wayshawn大的檔案&CD上的PP修辭筆記,
                                                                               
做久了會比較抓得到哪些對GMAC來說是絕對錯的點,
                                                                               
剩下來的選項哪些是相對錯的點,最後挑出覺得相對最好答案
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
Pace練習
                                                                               
考試各個部份的分享大致是這樣,另外推薦參考wayshawn大的Pace Practice心得分享,
                                                                               
一戰時我覺得對於考試時間的掌握做得不好,前面幾題花太久的時間,
                                                                               
到後面開始覺得時間不夠超級心慌,緊張之下題目又看不進去,結果有好幾題沒做完...
                                                                               
                                                                               
這次參考了P實際上考場的時候對於時間掌握比較有信心,心情上的不緊張對我來說幫助很大!

前前後後接觸GMAT也有三年的時間,終於可以從中解脫了,
                                                                               
感謝所有幫助過我的人,也感謝很多板友無私的分享,
                                                                               
最後預祝大家考試順利!!!殺G成功!!!!
