Wouldn't all of us like to be better at math (maths for some of you): arithmetic, algebra, geometry, word problems?

Research seems to indicate that we can get better.  So, I'm saying we've got a chance, to borrow and paraphrase one of the best lines from the movie "Dumb and Dumber."

You Can Grow Your Brain - New Research Shows the Brain Can Be Developed Like a Muscle, featured in HEALTH & SCIENCE

One should note, however, the big IFs in this research, though.  Growing your new math brain requires: (1) effort + (2) good strategies + (3) help from others.  Not just watching, practicing wrong (old tricks), or going it alone or with a novice.

Chocolate may be toxic to dogs, but Hershey Kisses can make math fun and memorable. Are you trying to re-learn GMAT subject matter the likely conventional way you were taught from kindergarten through college?  Or, are you prodded to think differently, daydream, doodle, and ponder thought experiments, approaching problems in new ways like Einstein and other geniuses?

Tonight, I connected with one of my best Houston Texas GMAT in-person course alumni - a salesman, foodie, and treehugger, who reminded me about his GMAT prep story (edited here for brevity):

"For six weeks, I tried to 'prep smarter, score higher' studying Kaplan® GMAT Prep books and video resources. But, my GMAT® score did not improve. So, Kaplan gave me a refund. Then, I took The Economist® GMAT Prep online self-paced, personalized test prep program. While it’s a very comprehensive program, it just didn’t do enough to prepare me for the challenging questions GMAC likes to serve up. Just a 20-point improvement in my GMAT score, so The Economist gave me a refund, too. Only your in-person Houston GMAT prep classes helped me the most taking me from 490 to 560. I'm ready to win the rest of the average 140-point increase enjoyed by Veritas Prep students. I guess I forgot how hard it is to study alone."
