Is Vedic Mathematics useful for GMAT ? [#permalink] New post 04 Oct 2007, 23:30
Hi,

I've been preparing for GMAT for some time now and am really bad at quant! I wanted to ask all members here whether it would help me if I study Vedic Mathematics ?

It would help a lot to receive suggestions on this ..

Cheers!

I also don't think so....
I have tried Vedic Mathematics little bit...It really makes calculations easy but I believe it will not help much in GMAT.

I would suggest you to use the present Mathematics approach and practice more and more...You need to make your basics very clear before you take on hard GMAT problems.

First get OG(Official Guide) and go through the Quant concepts.
If you need more details then you can refer to 9th-10th-11th-12th std School Mathematics books. Get the concept clear and then proceed further....

Hi .. I have studied Vedic Maths and don't think that it alone will help you get over your quant problems. For quant, you will have to study from the regular stuff - og, kaplan, manhattan, princeton or whatever u prefer ..

Vedic maths is extremely useful for getting super good at basic maths operations and calculations.. it does improve your speed a lot. However, it needs to be used together with the standard material to help anyone in GMAT...

Hope I've answered ur query.

There is an ebook that I purchased from http://maths.rquiz.com which brilliantly explains Vedic maths and then it's applicability to GMAT can be easily understood. (I surely benefited from it!)

There are also some free resources for Vedic maths at http://maths.rquiz.com/pages/top-7-free-resources-for-vedic-mathematics.php
in case u wanna check those out ..
