I have until mid-August (4 1/2 months of studying) to take my GMAT exam for the fall and possibly October for Spring if I score badly. I am overall confused about what to study for the GMAT. I recently watched a GMAT quant review as well reading various forms that provide basic math concepts of what will be tested on the GMAT quant, and felt motivated about what I was learning until I started looking at the GMAT questions and answers. The gmat answer provided short cuts to answering these questions and overall gave the impression that these math concepts were obsolete. Its should take 2 min to solve a math problem but formulas take longer to do. I got a 230 on the official GMAT practice test and need to get at least a 550 to gain admission. Where I can start for beginners becasue everything is so foreign to me. Thank You!

Hey!

Increasing your score from 230 to 550 is not a daunting task and you should not be scared. As you go higher in GMAT score, the tougher it becomes to increase it more. Hence, going from 230 to 550 is easier than going from something like 550 to 600. Hence, do not worry.
First and foremost, make a GMAT study plan. This is immensely important as it will guide you towards an organised learning regime.
Start off with the Official Guides. Read the concepts and try out some questions. As you start getting a feel of it, opt for a full fledged GMAT course which will help you give more direction. Let me know if you would like to know more!
