Your verbal score is great! That's a good stepping stone. Math is actually "easier" to improve. one reason you see a lot of GMAT Clubbers with high Quant scores (50 and 51 are not unusual), is that many folks here are more math-minded or may not have english as a native language, and thus the verbal section is naturally harder for them, but there are also a number of verbal-minded people - you are definitely not alone but still special :)

Interesting to see how consistent GMATPrep was with your verbal score but completely off in terms of math. Could have been a glitch (doubt it)
If you are looking to build up fundamentals take a look at the Kaplan Math Foundations as a guide or PR 1012 book for practice questions - their math section is very good by my marks - it goes into Coordinate Geometry, Yes/No DS, Groups, Combinations, etc - all of the higher end GMAT questions that are often neglected but are required for the Q45+ score.

I would guess you only need 4-6 weeks depending on your schedule and you should be ready to tackle GMAT again. Get PowerPrep too (for eval) since you burned through the GMATprep.

Also, may want to give GMAT Tests a try - they are for 700+ math level

Thanks for the kind words bb! I will definitely take a look at the PR 1012. I like the idea of being able to focus on a specific subset of problem types in order to better hone in on my weak areas. In the past I had used the MGMAT Quant books to reference specific types of problems in the OG, but it gets kind of time consuming flipping back and forth. This PR book would probably be a little more user friendly.

Would you say that the questions are fairly comparable to OG Quant? I guess it doesnt matter, as I really just need to perfect the underlying concepts behind the problems, and worry about attacking OG questions later with a more solid quant foundation. Just out of curiosity, are the Verbal questions even worth looking at? I cant remember whether it was Kaplan, PR, or somebody else who was supposed to have terrible verbal material. This time around I am not going to rest on my laurels when it comes to verbal.

Oh yeah, and to all the fellow gmat clubbers out there, sorry about such a downer first post!

Anyway, Time to make the donuts.....

Yes, it is PR that usually has strange verbal questions.
Since the book has been out for about a week, I did not go through every question (nor planning to) - just samples some from each section. I did not think they were that bad - usually the CR's are bad, but when they are all aligned by type (assumption, inference, etc) they seem OK. RC's were a bit on the easier side, but that was my impression. SC's were pretty straightforward as they usually are. So, I did not feel the Verbal section was a waste, but again - I have not gone through all the questions and it is possible there are a few downers there too :wink:
