pelihu you are right, I should've provided a more detailed description.
Well, I practiced with the official guide, I could get through the problems in the beginning, which I think would be considered very easy. It's the problems later on that give me trouble. I hit a wall after the easier problems, I'm not sure how to solve the harder problems, don't know where to start. I don't know if it's the fundamentals of Algebra and geometry, statistics, etc. that are giving me problems or that I can't solve problems above a certain difficulty level. If I'm not able to solve a problem that I think is difficult and I look at the solution, it makes sense, but it does not help me on solving the next difficult problem. Does that make sense??
the reason I only put the quant score and % rank is because I thought maybe there are certain levels at which people suffer from the same deficiencies. For ex. don't know basic math or something like that.
Is there something I can use which gives me a good understanding of how to attack the Quant section. For example, with the LSAT, you can learn strategies on how to solve the Logic Games Section which helps on a broader scale to help solve most Logic Games.
Zoli12 - I am very much in your situation. I'm currently using the Arco GMAT/GRE Math Review as a refresher. Many of the fundamentals are there to jog your memory. I also use
cracking the GMAT by princeton review. These questions are difficult, but a lot of times on the GMAT if you can learn to eliminate wrong answers it may help you out. That is what PR teaches.
I am considering taking a GMAT Math refresher course at a local college.
