I was hoping someone who has experienced this could help out- I've been studying pretty regularly since late December. I am scheduled to take the test on April 20. I can consistently score quite well on the verbal, with RC maybe having some room to improve. However, Quant is kicking my ass. It's one thing to sit, relaxed, and work out of the official guide but doing the mock exams have me a bit worried. I freeze up or just guess a lot with quant.
Is there a back to basics book you'd recommend for me? I could go back to some MGMAT math stuff but the idea of weeding through all that is daunting.
I'm scoring pretty consistent 600's at this point. Which really isn't that bad with about a month left to go. But I wanna feel like the time I'm putting forth is worthwhile because going on 3+ months I have some burnout feelings. If I could ensure a 650 or higher I'd be satisfied.
What's your Quant/Verbal split? Without knowing your current Quant score, it's difficult to say what you need to do. Also, what kind of mistakes do you make under timed conditions? Do you wonder where to start from, do you make calculation errors, do you take too much time on one question and then rush the others, do you find it hard to convert word problems to equations, do you find it hard when they test the concept in a twisted way etc.
Give yourself 20 mins and take a 10 question test. At the end, figure out where you went wrong with each question. Go through the solution and see if you understand it well. If you do, think of why you couldn't do it in the allotted time. That should tell you what is holding you back.
