Where do I stand in Quant? [#permalink] New post 20 May 2012, 16:26
Guys,
I am new to this forum. I have been studyin for the GMAT for a few weeks now. I was going through OG12 and got around 10 out of 230 wrong in the PS but i got 40 wrong out of 174 in the DS.
Just wondering where I stand and if anyone has any advice on what I could do to improve my score, I would greatly appreciate any help. Do i need to work on PS or does this score represent a good enough score and I should concentrate more on SC, DS and CR ?

The "score" depends a great deal on the difficulty level of the questions. Were the incorrectly answered DS questions, for example, clustered at the end or spread out evenly? The best way to find out where you stand is the GMATPrep.

I would say that you're in okay shape for now, but you need to work on DS. Also, try to pinpoint what's wrong with DS. Is it the general nature of the DS question itself, or is it due to a weakness in, say, number properties? Review your error log to see whether there are any patterns.

How are you doing on verbal?

thanks for the reply. A higher percentage of those answers were after 100. I was checking the answers and I can see that in a lot of those answers I am kind of jumping the gun and saying that they neither A nor B are not sufficient.
I gave a gmat prep test right now and have completed the math and to try and be better at DS i was giving it more time which ultimately resulted in me randomly clicking the last 5. I guess I have a lot of work ahead. Just not sure how to work on it from here.

As for the Verbal, I had 28Wrong out of the 140 in SC and 15 wrong out of 95 in CR. I am not going to spend too much time on the RC other than OG12 and verbal reviews and will do it once towards the end.

Any suggestions on how I should move forward from here?

Have you seen the flow chart in OG 12 for solving DS problems. You need to internalize that process.
You need to pick topic master it and move to another while keep revising the first. See the link below for details.

You're falling for traps. These were tricky for me too. In my opinion, the GMATClub tests are the best DS preparation available. Those DS questions are frustrating and very tricky, but they (painfully) teach you what to look out for.

Just to clarify, but did you not take the full exam in one sitting? As for timing, that will improve overtime. Just time yourself for each practice question. If you take longer than two minutes, mark it as incorrect (but finish it!).

Is there a reason why you are placing less emphasis on RC? Hopefully, it's because you perform well on it. If not, be careful. It's important not to assume anything about the GMAT. Be active about your studies.

An 80 percent on SC is decent, but you can probably improve. Make sure to reread any SC guidebooks and fully review every SC explanation - even for the ones that you answer correctly. An 84 percent for CR is, again, decent. As for SC, review OG explanations and make sure to read a guidebook on CR if you haven't done so already. The main concern for this section is that the verbal questions found in the OG are easier than the ones that you will see on the test.

bmillan01.. Thanks for the response. I am going to try and access the free tests on the 28th. hopefully I get enough time to work on them considering I'm going to be with my family.
I had done a lot of RCs for GRE before and feel its the hardest section to improve on drastically. I want to crack SC and am working on the CR bible which should also help me on my RC in the long run.

Any suggestions on IR?

thanks,
Priyank
