600 advice [#permalink] New post 22 Dec 2011, 21:44
Hey guys like all of you chasing that 700 I am just looking for some tips. I have managed to go from 470 to 580 on knewton prep in the last couple of months and am just looking for advice on how to advance further. I am pretty balanced now with last CAT of 35 V 36 Q. I am confident that I can increase my verbal to at least low 40s but I am struggling with the math. I am strong in percents, interest, and basic algebra, but I am really having a hard time with advanced rates and number properties. I memorized my primes through 100, odd/even rules, and divisibility rules but I still have a hard time with these. Any tips? Much Appreciated.

What score are you looking for?

When do you need to take the GMAT by?

I would highly recommend (and confident you can increase your quant) if you get either the MGMAT Math Foundations or Kaplan Math Workbook. If you have a bit more time, also get the MGMAT Number properties

And regardless, get the GMAT Roadmap - it is an easy read book about the best practices for studying for the gmat - you can see my review in my signature.

Does this make sense?

Thank you bb for your quick response. Time is not an issue, and I would really like to get 700. The only books I have purchased are the Kaplan 2011 premier and the official guide both of which I haven't spent much time on as I am working mainly in my online course. I will definitely look into those math specific books. I have been focusing on finishing my course and I only have access to the materials until feb so I want to make sure I get the most out of those, but thank you for those book ideas.
