Ok so here is a question.......I have these weeks where I do nothing but study for the GMAT, then I take like a week off and when I return to my books, I forgot like half the stuff. Any ideas how I can retain what I learn. If I cant keep it in my head for a week, how am I gonna keep it in my head in a few months when I actually have to take this exam ?

Hey AEK,

I get this question a lot from students. The best advice I can give is for you to balance your schedule. You should have a consistent GMAT study strategy. You need to set aside certain times on certain days, 1.5-2 hrs a day is the best, in my opinion. You also need to study incrementally. Don't just study a bunch of things at once. You want to segment your study strategy so that you attack a certain subject area, continue studying it until you are completely at ease with it, and then move on to the next study topic. So lets recap:

Balence
Organize
Segment
Master
Continue

Follow these basic guidelines and you should be able to both retain and understand more of what you are studying.

Good Luck,
Steve

gmatguru,

you should make an instructional video or something where you lay out all of these techniques.
