All right, I'm back from my long weekend trip. It was a lot of fun, but I had a few disappointing moments: my car got broken into and the thief took my car stereo and luggage; also, I have bed bug bites all over my legs from staying at a shitty hotel. In any event, I am glad to be studying again. To the GMAT prep folks out there: mini-disasters are bound to happen during your study--don't let them distract you! Eye on the prize!
Today I finally mustered the discipline to do something I've been avoiding for too long: making flashcards of important GMAT concepts. My plan is to make flashcards of ideas that I think are important for mastering the GMAT (strategies, formulas, etc.) and to review them every day--7 days a week--until test day. It's a time-consuming task, but it is also something that I'm sure I'll appreciate later.
Consequently, I started reviewing all my GMAT material from the very beginning and I was able to create about 50 flashcards just from my old Princeton Review notes alone. I'm hoping I can finish all the rest of my notes (Kaplan, Kaplan Math, Delta) tomorrow, but I think that's going to be a stretch. [Editor's Note: I should have started my flashcards from Day 1.]
For those of you who are just beginning your GMAT study, start making your flashcards from day one and incrementally add more cards as needed. Then you won't have to waste precious study time as I am doing now.
SUMMARY OF DAY 37 WORK:
1. Flashcards from Princeton Review notes.
RECAP OF DAY 37 INSIGHTS:
1. Start making your flashcards early.
2. The guy who broke into my car is an asshole.
