Improving Q44 to Q49/Q50 Range? [#permalink] New post 13 Mar 2010, 13:57
I have no issues with verbal but always struggled with math, which blows my mind since I'm an Asian engineer. But anyway, my first GMAT I got Q41. I went through GMAT Hack's Math Bible, about 3/4 of Knewton, MGMAT Number Properties, kept an error log and tried to tackle certain perceived weaknesses, and have improved my Quant to about Q44/Q45 on a consistent basis.

What should be my next step if I want to score in the Q49/Q50 range? I know the GMATClub tests (which I have access to but haven't done yet) are a good resource - but are they enough? I really liked the MGMAT Number Properties guide but given that I probably don't need very basic review, is it worth purchasing the rest of the Math guides? Should I study additional "prep materials" or just do more problems?

Thank you!

I should add that I already plan to do the OG problems + 2 full length tests from the GMAT but will save those till the end.

I would encourage you to focus more on theory than practice questions - you will achieve your goal much faster.

From MGMAT collection, would also recommend MGMAT Word Translations Guide.
Potentially would also suggest targeted practice for the question types you are weak with and potentially going through the MGMAT Number Properties again (through the questions you got wrong or had issues with).

Any specific areas that you feel is lacking or based on your error log, what is the greatest weakness you have?

Thanks. My biggest weakness used to be number properties which is why I bought the MGMAT number properties book and it helped tremendously. Basically my improvement came in that area. Now the error log seems to be showing pretty consistent misses across all math topics, which is why I'm debating what resources I should use to gain maximum results.

Hm.... MGMAT Word Translations is a good book and potentially a step in a different direction is MGMAT Math Foundations.
Also, Kaplan Math Workbook is decent (I used this one) - here is a list of the best practice questions from it: which-one-to-start-first-manhattan-quans-or-kaplan-math-work-83184.html?view-post=623687#p623687
