Nmat Exam Study Tips

1)Have a watch! So when I took the NMAT there was not one clock to be found
thank goodness I had a watch. I think its crucial for the first part. They had a guide on the wall
suggesting that you take a certain amount of time for each part. However, if you are
planning to go to different parts of the test you need to make sure you keep track of
your own time too. I didn’t want to stress about knowing the time so I made sure to
have a watch. At the end they do tell you when you have 20 mins, 10 mins, 5mins
left.

2)Proper use of your review time is critical.Make sure you use your review time wisely so you can cover all the areas.

3)Take advantage of the practice set during the review.it is best to answer all the questions in the practice set early.

4) For topics like biology and social science which don’t really need so much comprehension and problem solving, definitely, ACTIVE RECALL works! So use apps like quizlet and anki for FLASHCARDS!
