I'm hoping to take the GMAT on Veteran's Day, which gives me about 3 weeks of studying. I have been studying verbal for a little while and am happy with how I'm doing.

But I need to focus on Quant now, and I'm basically starting from scratch. Did not really take math in college and don't use it at my current job. I don't remember any of the geometry rules, etc (though I understand it's not hard to pick it up). I did get a 790 on my math SAT way back when, so I know the ability is there.

I can put in about 60-90 min of studying on weeknights, and about 3-4 hrs on weekends. Right now I have the OG and Princeton books. Do you think I can learn quant in just 3 weeks? My goal is high 600s. Any ideas for how to go about it? Thanks.

For a nice and (almost) comprehensive review, I recommend Kaplan's GMAT and GRE Math Workbook. It is nicely organized, drills you in increasing levels of difficulty, and the questions are in GMAT form. I teach the GMAT for a competing company, but I use the Kaplan book for my students who are either very weak in fundamental, or, like you, need a quick, but comprehensive review suitable for self study. My only criticism of the book is that it does not cover any Probability or Counting, and its coverage of Data Sufficients is a little skimpy. However, I still have not found a better comprehensive math review.
