Okay, now back to my confession.
For years, I've told my students that reading comprehension is the hardest part of the verbal section to improve, especially for non-native English speakers. I mean, reading skills are developed over years, not months, right?
It all depends on how effectively reading comp is taught on the GMAT and GRE, and that's...
Let's face it. Video interviews can scare even the bravest. But they shouldn't. In fact, you can stand out as a top applicant if you follow the right steps. Pre-recorded video interview questions can offer unique opportunities for MBA applicants like you.

In case you missed the news, the GMAC recently announced some changes to the GMAT that will affect your test-taking experience starting on July 11, 2017.
Specifically, the GMAC is introducing a new feature that they're calling "Select Section Order," which is exactly what it sounds like. Designed to give candidates more flexibility in customizing their GMAT experience, "Select Section Order" will enable you to choose the order in which you complete the four sections of the GMAT exam.
Pretty interesting, huh?
But the real question is, what does it mean for you?
Is this even good news? Is one section order better than another? What if you're scheduled to take the GMAT before July 11th but like the idea of navigating the sections in a different order? And how should you decide which order to pick?
I'm going to answer all of these questions -- and more -- in a special Facebook Live broadcast this Wednesday, June 21st at 1:00pm Eastern Time U.S. (10:00am Pacific).
WHAT: Facebook Live...
