  • Guest Post by Varsity Tutors: How to improve your score on the GMAT [or any test] - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    in any other way these circumstances could very well have messed up your score Thankfully they can all be fixed for your retake Remember conditions of the room Things like temperature and noise can also affect you negatively and you can be better prepared for them next time Remember your actual test taking Timing and concentration during long reading passages are examples of important concepts that should be always incorporated into your preparation Did you have problems with these the first time Remember the test content There may have been specific concepts vocabulary or problem types that were vague or unknown to you and that to your dismay popped up repeatedly Jot them down so you can work on them since it s likely that they are important and you will see them again 2 Take a short break Once you ve immediately recapped the day it s time to shake it off and move forward with the lessons you ve learned It s important to give your mind a little bit of time off and put some distance between you and the first test 3 Address your weaknesses When you analyze your test day experience look at the items that you saw consistently and didn t feel confident approaching Hit those hard by doing drills and in format questions until they are no longer a problem 4 Shore up your strengths Don t let the things that you are good at fall by the wayside Instead keep them fresh by continuing to work on them while simultaneously reviewing the more challenging material as well And in all question cases but particularly when you re trying to keep your good skills fresh go over both correct and incorrect answer choices You may have answered the question right but was there a faster way to do it Is there any lesson shown in the wrong answers that you could use regarding eliminating wrong answers in the future 5 Work on time management Time management is a big problem for most test takers so don t neglect it You ve got to improve how quickly you get correct answers and how much time to spend on questions before giving up on them or guessing Once you have concepts down complete timed problem sets and exercises as soon as possible 6 Change it up The results of your first test were clearly subpar for you so perhaps your method of test preparation needs to be changed If you keep preparing the same way you did before how will you ever increase your score Einstein famously described insanity as performing the same task over and over and hoping for a different result To avoid GMAT insanity change the method somehow get a GMAT tutor use a different test prep book publisher do a better job simulating the real test day experience when you do practice tests really commit to working on the test everyday and not just sporadically Shake up your learning and pump

  • Guest Post: Edward Cox on the Common Core - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    investment in teacher training technology and new books in the shift to the new standards will trickle down to mathematics and language arts classrooms Although Cox acknowledges many teachers are unfamiliar and even suspicious of the oncoming changes he said he to shift to a more student oriented teaching approach Questions that fall under the Common Core Standards resemble free response questions Cox said For example he asked his class to design a fund raising game for the Associated Student Body that would turn a profit The game consisted of finding the diameter of a disc to toss into a rectangular plain that would result in the student winning 40 of the time After three to four days testing measurements students learned how to use the quadratic function to determine the appropriate size of the disc Implementation of Common Core will lead to a different approach to testing in addition to teaching Instead of gauging students knowledge through California Standardized Test booklets stocked with multiple choice questions Common Core will test students through technology Students will be able to manipulate graphs and drag answers on their computer screens during Common Core tests Common Core is more project oriented instead of lecturing on all the different standards Cox said that s the way I usually like to teach so for me it s not a big deal Article originally written by Edward Cox on Education Matters Wednesday June 26th 2013 Education TAGS education No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or

    A recent NY Times article discusses the updoming decision The biggest obstacle to class based affirmative action as Richard Perez Pena pointed out in The Times the other day is the obvious one cost Poor and working class students are by definition in need of more financial aid That is why universities have shown little interest in switching It s cheaper to bring in students of color from middle class or affluent families It also brings in kids with higher SAT test scores which count so heavily in the obsessively watched college rankings Cost is the reason that even many proponents of class based affirmative action favor what Tienda calls a holistic approach class and race both Head nod to Bill Keller for surfacing this important issue in his article yesterday Tuesday June 11th 2013 Admissions Diversity Education TAGS Diversity education EducationMatters 2 Comments to Race and College Admissions Wise College Geek June 18 2013 Well this seems to be the basis of debate across many blogs around the internet at the moment I personally believe that we should have faith in the progress of the country and let go of using race as a tool to perhaps help the minorities Jeremy C Wilson June 18 2013 Wise College Geek Thanks for dropping by and sharing your opinion Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD
