Hello Experts

I have been studying for GMAT for almost three months now. Last night I scored 740 on GMATPrep. My distribution was Q48 V43. I know its a good score but the problem is that I missed too many DS problems (whereas, on PS I was almost flawless). I think the biggest flaw that I have right now is in DS questions. Can anyone kindly guide me in this regard. May be some helpful articles, suggestions, videos etc.

I will be extremely thankful.

Without details, it's hard to provide specific, tailored advice, but here are some general tips:

1. Be sure to try out unusual values (e.g. fractions, negative numbers, zero, etc.).
2. Make sure you don't carry information from one statement to the other when you are checking each statement individually.
3. Stay focused on what the question is asking (sounds obvious, but you'd be surprised).
4. Don't forget about information in the stem. It's a good source for clues (e.g. "If x is an integer..." don't try non-integers, but do try negative values).

If you want to provide some details, I'd be happy to offer more specific advice.

Data Sufficiency inspires many posts because it's tricky and fun and doesn't usually involve the grunt work of PS. So you love it as an instructor but perhaps not so much as a test taker. We have many posts on DS tricks and strategies on our blog. Search for Data Sufficiency here: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/

I am putting down the links to some of the DS posts (there are many more):
