Show Notes

The Executive Assessment (EA) is different from other standardized tests in a number of important ways. As such, the way you need to prepare for the EA is distinct in several key respects as well. In this episode we highlight those unique aspects of the exam and lay out a game plan for preparing for the Executive Assessment, including:

  • The "EA Success Triad" -- three interrelated components that are integral to studying effectively for the EA;
  • Key differentiators between the Executive Assessment and other standardized tests, and the preparation mindset you should adopt as a result;
  • Which of the three sections of the exam to prioritize with your study time (hint: it's probably not what you think!);
  • Recommended resources for learning the content and test-taking strategies necessary for a high EA score;
  • Go-to sources of EA practice problems and practice tests;
  • And more!
