Best GMAT Quant book after an average score [#permalink]

Hey folks,

First post here

Last year, I did the GMAT (for a course I'm applying to next year, but I always think ahead), I got 590 which I was very disappointed with. The course I'm aiming for is the Masters in Management, at London Business School. I've been speaking to their admissions tutor and they advised I retake the GMAT. I did quite well in the qualitative element (scored full marks on the essay bit and high on the qualt stuff) however my quant let me down majorly. I think i got 37 correct.

I'll be doing my test in 2011 and I was wondering if you could hand-pick me some books focusing on quantitative maths in the GMAT? Books that would be available on Amazon (especially the UK)

I used the MGMAT math series and recommend those. There are five books in total, along with free online access to six tests.

Just keep reading the guides until the concepts are firmly engrained in your head. Also pick up the OG books and look into the GMATClub Tests. _________________

For verbal, Manhattan SC and Powerscore CR are the top performers. I also found LSAT RC problems quite helpful. There are a few other websites out there, but trust me: this one is the best! It has everything you need. _________________

Hey, just since you mentioned Amazon I figured I'd chime in - my two favorite books for the GMAT are our Arithmetic and Algebra books (from the Veritas Prep series). The titles are basic but the instructional content is great and each book contains at least a handful of the harder problems I've seen. For people working on math in one-on-one sessions I get a ton of value out of those two books. _________________

Any help is always greatly appreciated.

Few other items, where in the UK are you? I just checked Amazon UK and they have Manhattan GMAT guides.

Hi, I'm new here. I'm also interested in applying to the MIM at London Business School, what score did the applications tutor suggest you should have??

She said 600+, but I got the idea that 650+ was more of a competitive course.

Also, did you get 37 correct or did you get a 37 for your Quant section?

What is your timeline, and what type of score are you aiming to get?

Hey,

Ahh I'll get ordering them.

Sorry, I just checked. I got 32 on the quant section. My timeline is Easter '11, and I hope to get 650+. However, I heard that GMAC are creating a GMAT a new test in 2011. Can someone confirm?

Out if interest guys, just how similar are the real GMAT questions from the practice GMAT test on your website. I've been going through the Math ones and the 700-type questions seem to be easy for me.
