Anyone have any DS tips? [#permalink] New post 11 Feb 2012, 00:46
Hi there everyone. I'm set to take the GMAT this Thursday and I'm still having a hard time with Data Sufficiency. My math itself isn't too great either which also doesn't help. I have systematically gone through all of the Manhattan GMAT books and the Official quant book and I'm almost done with the 12th edition. I've taken all the tips from all the books but I'm still getting tricked/not seeing a key piece of info or just outright have no idea how to deal with the problem. My goals are not lofty - I'm only shooting for a 650, but this section is killing me. Does anyone have any tips that would help me think logically through the problems. I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

I know we're not supposed to write short posts anymore. But thank you so much Bunuel. That is EXACTLY what I needed. My verbal is great so I think this will be enough to push me to my goal.
