Hey guys ,

I've been scoring 46-48 on the quant section of my practice tests . It is necessary for me to buy the MGMAT set of 5 for quant or should I just directly go for the MGMAT advanced quant book ?

Hey,

I would suggest going for the 5 books. The advanced quant really is more about strategy and tactics, but if you want to be sure you know all the basic and advanced content needed to get the most out of Advanced Quant, I'd personally go for all of the books. Also, that depends on which areas you make the most mistakes in and how much time you have until your GMAT. The way I see it, you are going to spend a LOT of money during the process anyways, so the books will just be a small fraction of your total expenses, anyway. Personally I score between 45-49 in the prep tests in Q (had 46 on real GMAT last year) and I have a lot of problems with the questions in MGMAT Advanced Quant (and I am pretty confident within the basic material).

Are the questions on the MGMAT advanced quant book too difficult ? I've heard people say they become too difficult and are not representative of questions that appear on the actual GMAT ?

Q46 is only approx 74th percentile now a days. A score of Q47+ (76th%) is recommended for anyone trying to go to top schools. Generally getting close to or above the 80th% is the threshhold to show that you have strong enough quant skills for the quantitatively heavy course material you will face in Bschool. I would recommend you purchase the books especially to help you get to these higher levels. The Advanced sections of these books are not necessary for you to receive this type of score, but they may help.

The Quant section on the real tests has become incredibly competative, so I'd do everything you can to score well.
