@ JohnGalt44: Thanks for the input!

Currently standing at Q44 (my score at my first GMAT attempt), I thought that I have to boost my score first to at least Q46/Q48 and then make use of the MGMAT Advanced Quant. Do you think my current level will still be a good moment to start it? I already have it at home, but had jsut postponed the moment to tackle it. Your insight on this matter will be well appreciated.

All the best,

I know they have a caveat at the beginning of the book that if you aren't scoring above Q45 or some arbitrary line, you shouldn't use this book. However, as long as you think you have mastered the basics this book could be very very helpful.

I think the difficultly level of the questions is a bit over the top, but that was a good thing for me. It made the actual GMAT questions seem simple in comparison.

In summary, if you feel you are weak in just one area, I would say to focus on that one area first before coming to this book, if you have mastered all the basics, and are looking to apply those basics more productively, then this could be the book for you.

Hope this helps.

I would divide the book into two categories, Strategy and Practice. The strategy portion is good for any one who has mastered the concepts that are tested on the GMAT but finds difficulty putting things together (integrating the information to form the "bigger picture")..If you are scoring in the low 40's a lot of the questions in the question sets will be a bit too tough for you to really make a difference, However the strategy portion may help you in some cases. If you are struggling with 650+ DS questions for example, then the DS portion on the book should do you good, as it really talks about advanced strategy for DS which are not covered in many other books. If you are struggling for time, then learning to guess better may help to improve your score. Like the previous poster said, analyze whether their are deficiencies in your overall concept clarity, if not then move to this book, otherwise go over the strategy books again till you have a better grip of the material tested.

Thanks, guys!

It seems that I should first redo my Quant questions from the error log and understand the concept behind (where needed reread MGMAT Quant guides) and then move to Advanced Quant from MGMAT.

All the best,

Practicing GMAT Quant is all about solving a question (or 10 or 20 for example) then challenging oneself to figure out other ways to solve it. Try to solve PS by both traditional algebra etc and by back solving, the more you practice you will get an intuition as to whether a particular question can be solved quicker by strategy A or B. 80+% of the questions in OG can be solved in 2 or more ways, so that really multiples the amount of questions you have in front of you for practice .

Hi Experts (bb/Bunuel and others),
Could you please help me with this ?

Which one is more difficult (or should I say you'd recommend) to get anything in the range 48-50 on GMAT - GC Quant Tests/Questions or Manhattan's Advanced Quant , when you're under time constraint and subsequently would have to go for either of these two ?

Much appreciate your feedback.

Well... you saw my first post - I feel it is too hard. At the same time, it is quite cheap (less than $20). At the same time, you can get GMAT Club tests for free if you redeem Kudos. http://gmatclub.com/tests/redeem-kudos.html
If you can improve your score elsewhere (verbal) for a shorter time/less effort, I would focus there and not try to chase the Q50 or 51.

If you think Quant is what you need to improve, you have enough Kudos (more than so for GMAT Club tests), start with them. I feel they are better suited for this kind of thing but that's me and I am biased in this case.

Thanks bb. +1.

Just sent you a PM on this..in fact couple of PMs! The latter slipped out of my mind that I'd need to follow-up with you on my query...! Thanks to my IB like work-load, GMAT prep and all :)

Looking forward to hear from you over there.

The book is good for learning techniques and learning ways to answer questions fast and more logically.

Do not consider this book as a question bank but consider it more as a practice source aimed at sharpening skills.

I guess this book is good for those who are scoring + 44 on GMATprep and GMATClub tests.
