Hello all,

I have been practicing the Quantitative section for a while now and I am doing great on nearly all types of questions.
I do not improve on the last few types of questions because I simply do not understand the basics. This is where I could use your help!

I am having issues with the following:

Properties of numbers (accounts for 1/4 of my errors)
Equations (all types, accounts for 1/4 of my errors)
Operations on radical expressions and operations on rational numbers (1/4 of errors)

The last 1/4 is mainly because I fail to read questions thorougly/try to rush the question text. I can solve this myself (lack of focus due to high amounts of practice).

Do you have any tips for me how to improve on the basic for the issues listed above?
I if can solve this I will be 100% sure I will get the score that I need! (600)

Thank you in advance!
