My test is coming up shortly and I find myself in an odd predicament. My verbal is pretty strong and my math is as weak as it can get. When I gave the test the very first time with just 3 days of prep I hit a V31 and Quant was abysmal to say the least.

My question is what can I do/look at to improve Quant. I struggle particularly with these topics:

1) Probability
2) Combinations
3) Sequences/Series
4) Co-ordinate Geometry
5) Word problems relating to Venn diagrams/Grids.

What sources would you recommend that I look at to specifically target these areas? I've been following Magoosh's video lessons which have helped me with the basics but I'm just not able to think like the questions require you to. Any suggestions/help is welcome.

Thank you :)

Hello

Have you study MGMAT Quant Guides?

If No then first try these guides otherwise TargetTestPrep Strategies for solving Quant questions are simplest in my point of view, frist try it for 1$ it. If you like then get the course, for further details follow this link for TargetTestPrep.

Good Luck

I think the MGMAT guides do a decent job, but I find probability and Combinations inadequate. The following links helped me out( Still working on them)
