My test is on the 3rd of April and I have practiced quite a lot . Nevertheless , I am still struggling with DS questions with a very poor accuracy although I have no problems in the concepts of process itself . I know what is sufficient and what is not sufficient , I understand what the common traps are, and the grid Ad-BCE ... but still not doing well
Would you please advise ???
P.s: I already covered the GMAT Prep Now videos and articles about DS , as well as articles from Veritas
and GMAT Hacks blogs and practiced more than 70% of OG questions in addition to the majority of Ron's videos ....!!!!!
If you do not face the same problems in PS and have understood the DS question format properly, there is no reason to not score well in DS too (though it does take a little more time). Pick each statement alone and think if it were a PS question, how would you solve it - try to do a few steps. If you find out that you cannot find a single unique answer, it means the data is not sufficient. Ensure that you understand what is missing. When you consider the statements together, figure out whether the missing element is available now.
Most of your problem is probably psychological. A DS question is based on the same Math as PS question. You look for specific data when you solve a PS question. Look for the same data in DS - you will know whether it's sufficient or not.
