Help with Quant! [#permalink] New post 04 Jul 2013, 04:18
So I gave my second GMATprep practice exam and scored Q47. Given how weak in Math I am , at first glance, I was pretty pleased. I've worked diligently on my Math for the last 3 weeks. Then I noticed the percentile. It's a measly 79 percentile. Which is frustrating, to say the least.
However, I was going through the debrief's of people successful on the GMAT which are posted on GMATclub. Many people seem to score Q49 and still get 750 or above on the GMAT.
So I guess, what I'm really asking is how much importance should I give to the percentile? And how can I improve my Quant score further?I'm pretty okay at Verbal.
GMAT is in one and a half weeks from today.

With a week to go, just brush up on your error log and work on a few questions everyday to keep the concepts fresh in your mind. Don't try to learn anything new. Try to relax and sleep well in the days leading up to the test. Your state of mind could be the only difference between Q47 and Q49.
