I suck at quant and desperately need to go over the basics [#permalink] New post 21 Nov 2005, 12:09
I suck at quant and desperately need to go over the basics with someone. The only tutors I can find in my area are math tutors and not specific to the GMAT. I am looking for some sort of bulleted list of the various types of quant questions asked on the GMAT. Does anything exist?

I saw the sticky above and that's nice, but Im looking for something a little more professional and easier to provide to a professor to help me. Thanks!

Welcome!

Do you have a copy of the Official Guide? If you do, there is a math overview section that basically outlines the math you'll need to know to take the test. Start working through OG's math and keep an error log. The error log should tell you which quant area is your weakness (algebra, geometry, arithmetic...etc etc)

If you want to go over the basics, here is a good website http://www.wtamu.edu/academic/anns/mps/math/mathlab/

I would also suggest looking over the sticky posts in this math forum.

However, that's just an overview and in order to improve on quant scores, you'll need to participlate actively in this forum and read the answers that are posted and understand the concept.

Hope this helps!

Thanks [#permalink] New post 21 Nov 2005, 13:39
Thank you very much. I hope to improve my quant score enough to score above a 600. Verbal percentile is 85 and quant is an abysmal 24th percentile.

Do you think that's possible to accomplish in 3-4 weeks time?

You gotta have a starting point, I would suggest finding your weaknes in concepts/question types or(DS, PS) or timing first and develop a detailed study plan for these 3-4 weeks. OG would be a good place to start...master it from cover to cover.
