Any tips on improving skills to solve Quant Questions on Number Properties ???

It looks like my strength is Algebra and I seem to naturally start using Algebra techniques to solve questions that could be easily solved by picking numbers or eliminating choices.

I have been going over the material in the official guide and some of the great resources to improve my theory. However, I seem to consistently be doing bad in number property questions.

Any help/suggestions or suggestion on good study material will be greatly appreciated.

You can also check out our Arithmetic book. It has an entire section devoted to number properties. It discusses what the test maker has in mind while making such and such questions, from where you should start and things you should avoid doing.
