hi all: another quiet lurker, who recently scored a 640 (q42/v35) after 8 months of study (550 hours of prep, largely on quant side). i am targetting a top 15 school and will apply in round 2. my weakness is quant (zero quant background - academically, professionally, and personally). i've been working with a private tutor for the past 3 months, but need to break and self prep, due to financial challenges. i've scheduled my 2nd test a month from now and must get my quant score to, at least, a Q45 in order to be competitive.

Please help; I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so very much in advance.

Going from 42 to 45 shouldnt be very tough :)
You can start by reading all the MGMAT quant books. They are a great source of all information required on the GMAT.
Also, from your mock tests, analyse your weak areas.
Startign solving 600-700 level questions on gmatclub for those topics.
Also, see the trends froom your mocks if you are weak at PS or at DS and concentrate accordingly.
Just a week of concentrated effort can give you the 3 point increase which you are looking for ...

And most importantly, have faith :)
You can do anything you want to !!
Please press KUDOS if my post helped !!
