Jeff Sackmann Challenge Sets vs MGMAT Advanced book? [#permalink] New post 21 Sep 2012, 06:47

This post was
BOOKMARKED
I went through the MGMAT Advanced Quant book and found the questions to be of a much higher difficulty- got about 50% of the practice set questions correct. I'm still not very clear with some of the questions I got wrong- some of the methods seem too lengthy to be solvable in 2 mins.

I was wondering, if solving just the Jeff Sackmann sets would suffice for getting a Q50 in quant?

I'm currently getting Q48-49, have another 2 weeks to go for my exam.

Suggestions please?
