I misposted this question apparently elsewhere. Here's a second try at it.
If you have little experience at math (a couple basic courses in UG, not even calc), can you still crack the GMAT quant with the proper prep or are you doomed and forced to rely on your verbal to prop you up (but knowing that the quant is going to likely sink you even if you destroy the verbal)?
My wife, who has an MS in Math and is about a class short of ABD, took a look at some sample quant questions and wasn't even sure what they were getting at for some of them or how to set up an equation. granted, she's a little rusty (hasn't taught stats/prob in 10 years, and only taught one section), but I figure if it makes her scratch her head in any way, it'll SINK me.
So please all, level with me, is there a chance for a person with stats aptitude but little math or quant background to crack the quant by repetition and learning enough tricks? BTW, I did very well on the LSAT (law school version of GMAT) several years ago. It's not math-oriented, but there's a ton of logic-type problems on it, which I ate for lunch.
Am I spitting in the wind or is there hope?
