congratulations on the score! did you do nothing else absolutely for quant in addition to gmatclub tests and the OG? as in, the tests are awesome, but what about the concepts?
am specifically asking because i have written my gmat once and scored a 48 on quant by solving only the OG only once. how do i take it higher from there?


Concepts were always there alice. I had problem with my speed. I used to solve using equations and stuff and the method was not an efficient one and costed me a lot of time. So I reviewed the answer explanations of each question in gmatclub tests and mgmat tests. I also made sure that I understood the explanation and tried to replicate the method in some other problems.

and Yea even the OG I did only the last 100 questions in DS. For math I predominantly concentrated on GMATClub tests. I did read the theory about evenly spaced sets in one of the strategy guides. Rest of the theory was in my head somewhere :)


thanks phanideepak. thats the case with me. i use traditional methods and i'm actually good with concepts atleast on the 48 level. in fact i score 48 without re-learning formulae, and concepts. your post answered what got you to 50 :)

Nice approach. Really like your determination.

Would you happen to about the 1000 PS/DS/CR/SC/RC and their correlation with the real GMAT?

I don't think that the 1000 PS and DS questions are any good. I went through the document and found most of the questions there easy.
Also the SC questions aren't something which you should use. I think that there's no point in practising questions when there are no explanations available because you become good at SC only by reading explanations which the 1000 SC document unfortunately doesn't have.

I think I will choose 6 schools among :
1. ISB
2. Stern
3. Ross
4. Darden
5. One among (Harvard,stanford and Columbia)
6. Schulich(I really like their socially responsible MBA modules)
7. IE
8. St. Gallen

1000 questions are a lot I guess. I personally didn't ahve a look at any of them but just solving all of them in addition to the material you have will be a daunting task. Also you might come across a lot of useless questions which are not useful for the GMAT.
