I'll be sitting for my GMAT one month from today. I'm really,really bad at Quant and incredibly under-confident. However, after quite a bit of practice, I've finally managed to get a grip on PS questions. However, DS questions are proving to be a menace for me! I take an exorbitant amount of time on them and still get them wrong anyway.I'm targetting a 750+ score so I need to master DS questions. Can anyone provide me with the names of a few good books?
Also, I've finished OG and also the KAplan Math workbook( which did not prove to be much of a hurdle). I've heard that Kaplan is good for easy and intermediate level questions, so I now need to master the 700-800 questions. Am I ready for Manhattan GMAT Advanced Quant? Or should I do some other book?
Please advice!

Hi. Sure. You can move on to the MGMAT Books. I found Kaplan Math Workbook to be fairly challenging and the only quant book I have used to prep (besides the large Kaplan Premier, which is even more broad and easier).

DS leverages your knowledge of basics with some twists (yes/no questions, same information in both statements, etc) but otherwise it is pretty straightforward math. Your answer should be as defined and solid as with PS. I would look into your error log and go back to the mistakes you have made and figure out WHY you did not get a DS question. Until you answer that Why, you will be using water to carve a stone - it works but it is slooooow.
