Is the Foundations of Math Book enough for a 600?? [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2013, 18:36
Hello everyone!

I made a really bad mistake and studied the quant strategy books for 1.5 months before switching over to verbal....i took a practice test and got a 20 on quant...basically I did not retain almost any of the quant i studied only after 2 weeks!!! (but definitely retained the verbal, i got a 32)

i then realized that this is because i did not have a solid basic math foundation to begin with (didnt ever like math in my life, unfortunately....i am so regretting not caring when i was in highschool!)

my question is this- if I study just the foundations of math book (by mgmat) - will it be enough for me to get a 600? (i have 2.5 weeks before i must take the test...i know :( )

ANY guidance would be SO helpful. and much appreciated.

Thank you all!
-m.

I don't think so. I don't think that book is sufficient to get you past the 500-600 level questions, it's very basic. It depends on what you're looking for.

Also - be careful and don't shoot for a score just to land in the average-land. I did that last time around and I hit the score I was looking for but it was so heavily weighted in verbal that my quant percentile was still too weak to be competitive at the schools I was looking at, so even if you're awesome at verbal - you may need to really work at quant.

I'd probably recommend using the OG Tracker with the official guide, do as many of those problems as you can to find your weaknesses and work specifically on those so you're not wasting time - especially since the test is coming up.

Good luck!
