Hi folks! I'm studying for the GMAT and aiming for a score 760 or above. I'd love to confirm - given my practice test score history below, is Quant the right section for me to be focused on? I was planning on using some of the strategies from the "improve your quant from 44 to 50" post if so.

Thanks so much for your advice. I really appreciate the supportive community here!

Yes, quant seems to be the section that needs work.

Your verbal score is very high. Just keep taking tests regularly so that your verbal doesn't drop. Also, getting a string of high scores in the verbal section will increase your confidence and decrease the probability of a significantly different score on test day.

Your verbal score is really good. How long have you prepared for the exam? when are you taking real exam ?

Thank you! I've been studying for about a month, and my exam is in a couple weeks. I've been taking these practice tests about once a week in addition to reviewing concepts and specific problems and problems I've messed up. I'm a little worried because it feels like my math studying hasn't clearly paid off in my scores yet.

Hi eggangel,

Great practice test scores! To improve your quant score to a higher level, you have to go through GMAT quant carefully to find your exact weaknesses, fill gaps in your knowledge, and strengthen your skills. The overall process will be to learn all about how to answer question types with which you currently aren't very comfortable and do dozens of practice questions category by category, basically driving up your score point by point.

So, work on accuracy and generally finding correct answers, work on specific weaker areas one by one to make them strong areas, and when you take a practice GMAT or the real thing, take all the time per question available to do your absolute best to get right answers consistently. The GMAT is essentially a game of seeing how many right answers you can get in the time allotted. Approach the test with that conception in mind, and focus intently on the question in front of you with one goal in mind: getting a CORRECT answer.

In order to follow the path described above, you may need some new quant materials, so take a look at the GMAT Club reviews for the best quant courses.

how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

Please reach out with any further questions.

Let’s do this!!
