First GMAT: 570 (36Q/32V)
Second GMAT: 590 (35Q/37V)

Goal score: 640!

So I took the GMAT for the second time this past Saturday and was really disappointed with my meager 20 point increase and my decrease in Quantitative. After the first exam, I got MGMAT books and the Math OG supplement. I practiced and practiced, but I just can't get a decent Quant. score. I am super happy with my Verbal score and am pretty consistent with Verbal scores ranging from 37-40 on practice exams.

I plan on taking the GMAT one final time in the beginning of October and will put all my effort into improving Quant. Sooo, for all you fantastic math people on this board, what do you suggest I do in preparation for a score in the mid 40s? I'm seriously considering getting the Quant. tests on this site (what's another 80 bucks?, lol). But, I'm not sure if I'm even prepared enough to attempt them yet... What do you all suggest for me to really perfect the basics?

One last question, if I can maintain a 37 in Verbal, what would I need to get on Quant. to get around a 640 on the GMAT? That is my ultimate goal score and I would pretty much be the happiest girl in the world if I could get it:)

Thanks so much for any advice, you guys are all amazing!

35 or 36 in Quant indicates that you need to brush up your basics or fundamental concepts in details. I would suggest you practice those last 1/3 rd questions (DS and PS) on OG-11 and all hard questions of OG-10 . Go through all those MGMAT quant books (theory part) again and do OG-11 and OG-10 questions in timely manner. The most important thing is to review the test results and find out which area of math you are weak in particular. geometry? number properties? or word problems? Then focus on individual group and try to clear those concepts of each section that are tested in GMAT. Once you are done with these, give a GMATprep test I and see your performance. If you go beyond 42-44 then you are sure that you are improving. Once you score above 44 in GMATprep Quant, then you can do GMAT challenges (if you do not mind spending some extra bucks) which will definitely improve your score by 4-6 points. In math one has lot of room to improve provided one diligently goes through all concepts and work out enough problems from each section.
