GMAT: A retrospective

December 11, 2011 by

GMAT BlogWell, folks.  This is my 50th post!  I actually find it somewhat hard to believe that I have written fifty posts for Kaplan’s GMAT blog.  What is even more astounding is that I have more to say!  Heck, if the next fifty go as quickly as the first fifty, I’ll be viable for syndication.

As is customary when reaching milestones of quantity, I think I’ll spend this post reliving some of my past favorites.  Below, I’ve cut and pasted some of the more intriguing lines from past postings and linked them accordingly to the full version.  Get you clicker finger ready to pounce and your reading eyes prepped for a deluge of grade-A Kaplan GMAT blogging…

  1. It’s a pleasure to have your attention for these next few minutes and thanks so much for giving it. My Debut
  2. 80/90% of life/success is just showing up.
  3. The answer: market economics.
  4. “How long did you prep before you went in?”, I queried, deliberately keeping judgment away from my tone.
  5. The use of the GMAT as such a selection tool is woefully inappropriate.
  6. They, too, can spot a modification error a mile away and an ambiguous pronoun might as well be a pink elephant.
  7. “Um, yeah, actually.  I have some advice for him,” Student A replied.  “Relax.”
  8. For various and inarguable reasons, going to school part-time is the best choice for many aspiring MBAs out there.
  9. His Kaplan instructor’s voice bellowed from the depths of his stressed and tweaking mind, Don’t cancel your scores!”
  10. One fact you might find interesting is “when business students take the GMAT, the entry examination for M.B.A. programs, they score lower than do students in every other major.”
