500 - 650 Level Math Questions [#permalink]
30 Aug 2010, 13:01

Hello all,

Looking for more basic math questions to work on before I move up to more difficult questions. I originally bought the MGMAT math books but found the math was a little too advanced for me at this point in my prep process. This was after going through Cliff Notes Math Review for Standardized Tests and MGMAT Foundations of Math. It seems to me that MGMAT books just take a quantum leap over these books in terms of difficulty level. It's kind of like running when you have only started to learn to walk.

At this point I just want to pump through reams of 500-650 level questions (several hundred would be great) so I can see the math from multiple angles and get very comfortable with it. Once I feel like I can answer all these questions at a 100% level, I am ready to move on to more difficult material. I am going through ARCO GMAT/GRE Math Review right now, which is a great resource given it's lower level math. However, I am about to finish all the questions.

HustleHarder,

I think you should try and get hold of a copy of OG 10. Most of the problems are in the range you just mentioned. Though unlike problems in OG 11 or OG 12, those in the OG 10 are not arranged by their level of difficulty.

We have GmatClub's guide for both the books where level of difficulty is mentioned. The questions are arrange in increasing order of difficulty. Do not play here and there, better stick to official matter.

I have OG 11 and OG Quant. I actually want to save both books when I'm rounding out my final prep. I'm unemployed at the moment so i can dedicate myself to studying long hours. I'd rather tackle these books when I feel comfortable with my quant. Right now my timing is slow, I am just working through problems and understanding what I'm doing. When I tackle the OG and OG Quant book problems I want to be in a position to do them in a timed environment.

My concern with the Princeton Review book is I've been told it is riddled with errors... Any other suggestions? Thanks.

OG 12....most of the questions (excluding the 25% of the questions in the end) are sub 600 level.... important tip - might sound silly but try to LEARN from questions rather than get to the answer, ie extract a method for similar more difficult quetsions.....

Thanks.... I'll take at look at PR 1,012; also, I noticed in one of the other threads the new Kaplan Q Bank; this seems like a great idea given that you can select easy questions and then move up the difficulty ladder. Really, a smashing idea.
