For Quant - which topics did you see most on your exam? [#permalink] New post 05 Mar 2010, 10:39
Just a question for anyone that has already taken the GMAT..... :)

Without getting into the specifics, in the Quant section, is there one area that you saw more tested than others? As an example, did you see more geometry than workrate problems? Did you see more exponent questions and very few inequalities questions?

I'm at a very low quant figure now and am only shooting for a Q30. I am wondering which area I should focus on during my prep... I know all areas (like the 5 mgmat guides: FDP's, Geometry, etc etc) are tested on the exam but which is the most prevalent? In other words, which topics are the MOST commonly tested and appear the most on the exam from your experience?

Thanks for the advice gang!

I'd say on my test there were a bunch of geometry questions. Seemed to be a bunch of exponent questions too. The MGMAT Number Properties book is a good thing to go through again a few days before the test to freshen up on those types of questions. There was maybe 1 or 2 probability questions. No combinatorics or permutations at all.

i don't remember what was on it, but i do remember one topic that was conspicuous by its absence: permutations and combinations. i'm glad too, since that was one of my weakest areas in quant

I second that. Not a question on my quant section on that, I had one discrete probability question though

+1 kudos to all. I appreciate the feedback. I just took my 2nd practice exam ( details on my progress tracking thread taking-the-exam-on-april-10-how-to-fast-track-quant-progress-90808.html#p695899 ... I got a Q30, V33 which is a 520 according to Kaplan Premier 2009's online exam. I will be comfortable as long as I can get back-to-back Q scores over 35 on my practice CATs...

I had a horrendous Q score on my 1st practice exam and within a week, I have managed to bring it up a little. I'm working on Quant for about 75% of my time before my exam on April 10th. The other 25% goes to verbal which has always been my strength since I read and write a lot.

I plan on going through the MGMAT guides (FDP and Number properties) again tomorrow. Repetition is really working for me on the material. More and more is sticking as I go through it :D
