Need help with Math..any study tips! [#permalink] New post 04 Oct 2007, 07:22
Hi everyone:
I am scheduled to take the GMAT Nov. 10th, which is not very long from now. I am getting pretty nervous since my math skills haven't improved much. I have been studying here and there since July. I work full-time like most people so its hard to study after work and on weekends. On average, I put 8-10 hours of studying in per week.

I have purchased various books like the Official Guide for GMAT Reivew, 11th edition, EZ Math Strategies and Kaplan GMAT 2008 Premier Program. All these books are great, but I find the math explanations long and sometimes difficult to comprehend.
Are there any quantitive study guides that break down the math explanations or that have easier/quick tricks on solving the problems?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If you're looking for substance, go with manhattan gmat. But be warned, it goes very much in depth.

If you're looking for tips and tricks, go with any ol' prep book. I recommend PR.

I say go with substance. Once you understand all of the concepts being tested and can solve a majority of the problems without a time limit. That's when you start learning tips and tricks to solve quicker. If you don't grasp the basics, the tips and tricks won't really help you much either.
