I'm struggling with quant in a weird sense, even though I'm ok in quant, at times during the test I run out of patience to complete the test and leave the section without completing it, which results in low score (this usually happens with quant). How do I overcome this 'feeling'? Also please share some practice materials. Thanks.

Hi MrVarghese,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your practice CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

You need to develop the attention span to hold concentration through the entire section.
Have you considered the gmatclub quant tests? You will get a whole bunch of sectional tests to practice through. And the tests are good quality too. So besides helping build the habit, they will also enhance your quant skills.

Hi MrVarghese,

I am happy to help you troubleshoot what is going on with you; however, I’d like to first learn more about your situation with the GMAT. Once you answer the questions already asked, I can provide some advice.

Bro, you need search GMATclub tests on this forum.
Search under MARKETPLACE (it's right at the center top of the webpage of this forum, alternatively go to DEALS).
And yes, before you go for tests, you should build your skills.If we put your thing in GMAT CR language: The NOT so good scores are already negating your assumption that you are good in Quant.

Try clearing your basics and then try to build on your calculations. After that work on tricks. Take any Prep book like Manhattan and you will feel that once you skim through those your confidence will go up. After that use gmat club exams to test your capability.

Hi MrVarghese,

You can try out the Math revolution course as it is phenomenal and covers the entire syllabus really well. Plus it has great reviews on GMATCLUB. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and the Quant review for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.
