Hello everyone,

I need an advice from all those quant specialist and hard working people out there.

I have started preparing for GMAT for past 45 days. As advised in many other forum topics, i started with quant sections before moving to verbal. My personal goal is to achieve 45 in quant before moving on to verbal. I believe i have gained sufficient knowledge of math required for GMAT quant. However, to my surprise, i scored 30 correct out of 48 quant questions (time spent 2.3 mins/questions) in GMAT official guide diagnosis test. I felt so depressed and thought may be i am not good for GMAT. To confirm that i try doing GMATclubs challenge M01 - i scored 29/37 (Times spent 2hrs). somehow i found Diagnostic test bit difficult than M01. Yesterday morning i did another set of 37 GMAT Official guide questions (mix of PS and DS questions). and yet again i scored less - 28/37 (time spent - 2hrs). Finally, this morning, i forced myself to do another GMATclubs test M02 - and to my surprise i scored again less than 20 - score 26/37 (time spent 2hrs 15 mins). Totally devastated.............

So this morning i decide to seek some professional help and advise from you all. I am sure there were many other test takers, who have faced similar situation.

Material used: MGMAT books, GMAT club math book.
Practise material: GMAT official guide, GMATclub challenges, GMAT Hack's 1000 questions, 1000 PS & DS questions.

questions that i ask myself is - Am i lacking questions practise? or am i lacking sufficient knowledge?
As observed from my recent test results - Mostly i was not able to guess the logic or math required to solve the problem. However, when i saw the explanation, i understood the question and its explanation. therefore, i think, i am not lacking basic math knowledge.

My question to you guys is - What shall i do from next?

I appreciates your help in advance.

Many thanks and enjoy your day.
