I am about 2 weeks out from the test, and I seem to be stuck with a timing hurdle. Yesterday I got a M-gmat quant score of 42. I had to blindly guess the last 8 questions. I have the knowledge to answer the questions correctly, but I am not really one to work problems quickly. This past test was a huge improvement even from my first several...

I think that if I can just get fast enough to actually finish the tests, I could probably get up to around 45 on this one. I haven't decided whether or not I am going to take it a second time.

Anyway, any thoughts on getting past this? The only solution I have really is just reps... doing tons and tons of difficult problems timed. I've already gone through almost all of the most difficult OG questions, and those seem to be pretty easy.

Thanks,

Practice is one way. Another way is to try to Memorize as much info/formulas as possible. Here are a few suggestions: what-arithmetic-should-i-memorize-80128.html

Since it is math, it does not matter too much if you use OG or another source - you can get Kaplan, MGMAT, PR, or others and just get Walker's GMAT Timer and push yourself to do a question in under 1.5 mins. If those are easier ones, push to have them done in 1 min.

You can also look into the GMAT CLub Tests - these are designed for 700+ applicants and those looking to score 50+ on math. The questions are harder than most other materials.
