Learn Everything about the GMAT Exam

The GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test) is a computer adaptive test (CAT) that measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material, think critically, and solve problems. It contains four scored test sections:

i. Verbal Reasoning

ii. Quantitative Reasoning

iii. Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA)

iv. Integrated Reasoning (IR).

Knowing the correct strategy for each section of the exam is the key to a great GMAT score.

Luckily, Dr. Donnelly can teach you the right approach for each type of question that can appear on the test. Private GMAT lessons are available with Dr. Donnelly either in-person at his Midtown Manhattan office located just south of Times Square or online via Skype.

About the GMAT

GMAT Exam Structure

You will have 3 1/2 hours (with breaks) to complete the GMAT. You will choose your section order at the test center following the computer tutorial and just before you begin your test. There are three orders you will be able to choose from:

i. Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), Integrated Reasoning (IR), Quantitative, Verbal

ii. Verbal, Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment

iii. Quantitative, Verbal, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment.

After you take your exam, you will have two minutes to decide whether to accept or cancel your scores. You will NOT be shown your score before you decide. If you accept, your scores on the Verbal and Quantitative sections are combined to generate your composite GMAT score.

The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) and Integrated Reasoning (IR) are scored separately but don't count towards your composite score.

"My daughter has worked with Dr Donnelly for the last three months and it has been wonderful. Dr. Donnelly has been able to focus on her weaknesses and provide enormous insight. In addition, his advice with regards to strategy for the test has been invaluable. He is able to engage students and provide support well beyond other tutoring services. He is sincerely committed to student success and offers a personalized service with sound methodology. Within 3 months her scores improved significantly. In addition to all his talents ... he is just one of those really smart people that can teach."

"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one-on-one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone."

"I scored a 700 on the GMAT earlier today. I improved in Math quite substantially, from a 44 (70th percentile) the first time to a 49 (88th percentile). I'm pretty thrilled. I wanted to say THANK YOU very much!"

"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted."

Jacqui S., Manhattan, NY.

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."

Mia P., Manhattan, New York.

"Dr. Donnelly is patient and supportive and is clear when explaining questions that were challenging to me. He also urged me to work out questions on my own, which was extremely helpful. He created an atmosphere in which I looked forward to the challenge of each section on the practice tests, and I definitely felt more confident taking the test. If I need to prepare for another standardized test, I will definitely contact Dr. Donnelly."

"My daughter is a conscientious student. She put in a good amount of time with a famous national prep service and did well on her first attempted GMAT. Nevertheless she wasn't satisfied. Within a short period of time working with Dr. Donnelly she had achieved a near perfect score.

Dr. Donnelly made a true difference and I appreciate his expertise and his dedicate. It is truly difficult to move from a 97% to a 99.97% within a few weeks but with Dr. Donnelly's help it was possible."

Jane V., Fort Washington, PA (online student).
