When you are planning to start preparing for the Executive Assessment (EA) Test, there will be a lot of questions that you need to ask yourself & be clear with before you start your EA Test Prep journey.
One of the most important of these questions is about the time commitment you should be dedicating to your EA Test Prep. This time duration depends on various factors like, particularly your professional & personal life commitments, career objective, education background / work experience etc. The logical approach to answering these questions involves the following key factors like:
Target School and Target Score:
- Do you plan to apply for a full time MBA Program or an Executive MBA Program?
- How far is your chosen Programs’ Application Deadline? (Target Test Date)
- What are the commonly accepted scores at these Programs? (Target Test Score)
- Once you have these answers, it’ll be easier to assess how much time duration & total number of hours of prep you need to accomplish your Target Score & Target Score.
Without this clarity on your Target School, Target Score & Target Test date; you should not be starting your Test Prep as it will lack motivation and direction.
Choose & Prepare a Study Plan
There is Hard Work and there is Smart Work. Focus on doing more of the latter to save your time and improve your score with ease. Ask your peers or discuss with a mentor / coach to seek their inputs on preparing a study plan.
Having a right mentor / coach to guide you is very important as discussions with them will help you in removing all the blind spots and prepare a right plan that can save your time and efforts in acing the EA Test.
EA Test Takers Prep Duration
Since there is a diversity in the EA Test takers from different backgrounds, depending on the target scores & schools, their prep duration varies from 3 to 8 Weeks. Since all the EA Test takers are busy working professionals, they spend about 4 to 6 Hours per Week.
The benefit of starting your prep well in advance helps you in covering all the topics needed & the important thing is getting your basic concepts right along with understanding on how to approach. It is recommended to keep your prep light and relaxed, as the focus should be on smart methods & smart work.
Analyze Practice Tests Performance:
Take more practice tests and after completion of practice tests, thoroughly analyse all your mistakes by understanding the reasons why you have made the mistakes (conceptual issue, approach, timing, reading the question etc.) and work on fixing them by strengthening your understanding / approach to these topics.
