Great news! I took the GMAT yesterday and got a 720! I wanted to thank you again for all your help, I couldn’t have done it without you!– Michael

How should you prepare for business school?
- Do you need to major in business or get a BBA in order to get an MBA? Not at all. In fact, since many of the same courses are covered in an undergraduate business degree and an MBA, you could as easily major in whatever field you are interested in. However, you should be sure to get a good grounding in math, since difficult math is a primary component of the GMAT.
- Should I go straight from undergraduate to business school? Many business schools prefer students who have at least a year or two of real-world business experience after college. So, if you do apply to business schools while in college but don’t get into the one you want, keep in mind that you may have much better prospects with those same business schools a couple of years from now once you have some business experience under your belt.
- Do I need to be great at math to get a good score on the GMAT? Not necessarily. The GMAT’s math is very tough, but it’s much more about pacing and time pressure, and making good use of your time, than it is about knowing lots of math. You will definitely need to spend a good amount of time practicing math techniques and learning math tricks to improve your pacing, and learning how to approach the Data Sufficiency questions in an efficient manner, since they are very different from other math questions you might have experienced before. But you don’t have to be a math expert to get a great GMAT score.
- Take a practice GMAT and see where you stand.
- Research business schools to see how your GPA and potential GMAT score will stack up in the admissions process. MBA.com has a search function that will help you research business schools. Note also that some business schools will accept the GRE as well as the GMAT, so taking the GRE may be an alternative option.
- Enroll in GMAT tutoring to get you to the score you need to open the doors to the schools you want. If you are interested in enrolling in tutoring, contact Bobby Hood using the form at the bottom of this page.
Why is online tutoring better than in-person tutoring?
I have found that for almost all of my students (even those who live near me), online tutoring is significantly superior to face-to-face tutoring. In an online classroom, you and I talk to each other, but instead of looking at each other, we work through questions displayed on a shared whiteboard. We work the questions together and I make notes about the strategies you should use. At the end of the session, you save all the slides as a PDF file for later review.
When I used to do a significant amount of face-to-face tutoring, I realized that in person, students have to divide their attention between discussing and working the questions, listening to what I’m saying, and taking notes on what I’m saying. In online tutoring, you can focus directly on understanding and working the questions, knowing that the notes and strategies will all be saved as a PDF file for later review. It’s more efficient, and provides a better value for the money spent on tutoring.
