I took 2 GMAT Prep tests..scored 42 in the quant first time and 44 in the quant second time...on both exams i got 2 of the first 12 wrong..then i would get 6-7 in a row wrong....after that it was about 60-40 right to wrong ratio...it seems the middle section is killing me...

why am i getting those middle ones wrong? are these 700-800 level questions or 600-700? not 1 in a row..not 2 in a row..but 5 or 6...is that middle killing me more than the end...or is the end killing me more than the middle or both equally....

my scores are ending up 630-650...i feel the quant is keeping me from the upper 600's

any advice is appreciated..i have noticed that the majority of the middle questions are data suff...

what helped me in CR was to read the question and narrow the answers down to 2..on my scratch paper i write A,B,C,D,E and scratch them off so that I'm left with two, this also helps me focus only on those remaining (i tried this technique in my head and I would spend more time trying to figure out which ones I scratched off)..i do this for every CR question...if i end up with only 1 letter I go back until I get two...If I end up with 3 I go back until I can get only two..then I focus on the two...you should easily be able to scratch off two of the letters because usually 2 are way off. Then focus on 2 answers...the rest is up to you.

read the question first...then read the passage...formulate an answer before you read the answer choices....scratch of answers

1st goal...make sure the correct answer is one of the two choices..if not...keep practicing..

pretty much stuff verbal guides will teach
