One of the most common questions that I get from folks beginning their GMAT prep as we head to the end of 2024, is which section order is the best?

Now, with every section possessing a uniform length and scoring impact, as well as a rumored (and likely) section adaptivity impacting your overall score, there is a more specific approach to ordering the sections. However, it does still rely to a degree on your personal proficiency, and you should definitely still finalize your order by the time you finish your third practice exam at mba.com.
