Hey All,
This is my first time posting here, and I really would appreciate your feedback.

I need some help with data sufficiency questions. For some reason, I just can't seem to wrap my head around these type of problems. I've gone through the DS question sections in Kaplan, Magoosh, OG, and other resources, but nothing has worked so far. I've taken 3 practice tests and my performance on DS questions is really dragging my overall Quant score down.
1st Practice Test: I got 5 out of 14 DS questions right
2nd Practice Test: 3/13
3rd Practice Test: 9/17

I spent 2 weeks studying between test 2 and 3. I focused on learning/practicing DS questions, but my performance on the 3rd test didn't really reflect a big improvement. On test 3, I missed the first 5 DS questions I saw. On the other types of quant problems, my performance is exactly the opposite. I usually only get a few wrong (admittedly, I could be getting easier questions).

I have 1 more month to study so any feedback on what I can do to improve would be greatly appreciated!

Do a Google search for "Kahn Academy Data Sufficiency" and start from there.

Start with that. You have to approach every problem by asking these 3 questions:

1. Is 1 sufficient on its own?
2. Is 2 sufficient on its own?
3. (only answer if neither is sufficient) Are they sufficient together?

Sounds obvious, but I got a lot of questions wrong because I would glaze over problems and not go through a step by step process. Also try and solve some of the problems if time isn't an issue.
