Number Properties: What can make me perfect? [#permalink]  24 Oct 2009, 02:44
Hi guys,

After completing my initial phase of verbal preparation, I started the Quant part with MGMAT number properties. Being a science graduate with major in Maths, I thought Quant will be not much difficult for me but ...... the reality is ..... .

I felt very uncomfirtable with primes, factoirzation, remainders and consecutive integers. I couldn't understand MGMAT reasoinings like prime boxes etc. Exponents, roots are ok for me. The reason why I am so poor on factors and primes is that I didn't go through these since my primary school. Got 78 correct out of 119 total number properties questions of OG & Quant Guide.

Now can any one help me that how can I master the factors, integers, primes part of number properties?? Any resource, any practice material??

If the first area has shocked me what will the other areas of Quant do???

Manhattan Number properties is the magic wand for NP and you have it in your hand. I would suggest you to go through the book couple of times and you would find easier .

and if you want to a book from very scratch , go for KAPLAN MATH WORKBOOK.
