hello everyone and thank you very much for all the helpful insights in this forum. i'm having problems on the quant section. i've been using PR and lOG for the last 2 months and scoring in the mid/high 30's on PR practice tests. i recently got sat for the actual test and got completely destroyed on the first 15 questions (ended up cancelling the test). the questions were much more difficult than any that i have seen before. can anyone suggest a good quant workout (ie materials, resources etc)?

OG questions are easier than the actual GMAT IMO. Well, except for the last 25 questions in the problems solving questions and last 75 questions in data sufficiency, the rest is not really tough. If you scored in mid 30s in PR, then you should have been fine to score within that range. I would perhaps recommend you the Kaplan GMAT800 and the Kaplan GMAT with CD. The math problems in Kaplan are very challenging and it forces you to answer them fast under timed conditions. In all the prep material I found, except for Manhattan GMAT, none of them really focused on combination/permutation problems. You can actually find many of those on this board. If you are aiming to score 40+ on the test, you will certainly see at least a few C/P problems. Last but not least, actively participate in solving questions on this site, it will sure help your quant skills. If ever you find any question challenging, please post it and see what other members will provide you as explanation to help you out. Good luck.

Paul gave some useful advice there.

If you have specific practice questions, post it in our forums and i am sure many guys will have solutions for you.

Study the OG and learn how to tackle different problems. Keep an Error log or New Problem log...write down every problem where you learnt something new or you made a mistake.

if you are determined to succeed, you can count on us to help you.

Besides concurring with the rest of the guys, I would also recommend getting Kaplan's Math Workbook - it is a great way to take control of the basics and make sure you have a solid base there. I would not go into complicated areas of probabilities and combinations before dealing with arithmetic becasue you wont' really get there on the test

Anyway, highly recommend the Math book.

sunniboy,

the ascent education website you posted looks really interesting. i sent them a mail to find out if they have any classes in NYC (where i am based). i very much liked the speed/shortcut approach and did see the "question a day" and question banks. how do most candidates use their info? do they access via internet only or do you know if i can order materials. the site wasn't the most user friendly.

thanks.

I have also found that the Kaplan SAT Math workbook has a lot of good problems in it. You can pick a used one up on Amazon for 6-7 dollars. Many of the problems in the medium and hard sections for each catergory were designed for test takers with a calculator. Definitely good for some extra practice if you need it.
