Hey gmatclub community!

Ok I have been putting in 2 to 3 hours a day going through the quantitative part on the gmat review 13th edition and on the gmat quant review 2nd edition. The problem is that I have worked through them two times over and I still have trouble even understanding what some questions are asking. I downloaded the gmat club quant book from here. Do you think I just need to go over the book on the basics and focus on a specific subject one by one before I continue to answer a mixture of quant questions?

Hi,

I will suggest you to go topic by topic and follow something like this
For i=1 to end
-> Study "chapter i"
-> go to grockit.com and schedule game for "chapter i" with difficulty level easy, If doing good then increase the difficulty to "medium" else go to next step
-> re-read the "chapter i" if you are doing bad
-> else goto next chapter and repeat the above steps.

-> practice a LOT on grockit.com!

Also, Prepare a progress chart something like this
Prepare a xls sheet (topic by topic).. and keep a track of your progress on a daily basis. Use color coding (Red,Orange,Green).
Red: You are weak in theory - brush up your concepts.
Orange - Done with theory but weak in application of the concepts
Green - Done with the topic

Hope it helps!

Don't fall into the trap of just blindly doing hundreds of questions. The books you are using are definitely the right ones - but before you exhaust those questions, make sure you go through some core review.

In DS, for example, did you know that the phrase "x contains only odd factors" - is really just a fancy way of saying "x is an odd (positive) integer" ?

Get used to these identifications and you'll be able to get things to "click" faster. You'll also make better use of the questions you are currently doing.

Hey man,

Have you thought of going through the MGMAT or the Veritas Prep books? Those books go through the fundamentals in each subject, as well as strategies for the more difficult questions. Cheers!

I experience exactly the same problem.
Although, When i review the answer explanation, nothing seems completely abstract and I very often get the feeling "aha, so this is what they were asking about".
