Hi,

I have been studying awhile now for the GMAT and honestly I have been having a tough time with it. Bought books and even went to a tutor, though it all helped, I feel that I still have a long way to go to get a 700+ score.

So what I really want to do is break down the GMAT (with all your help) to the absolute basics and go from there. Now what I don't want is "Oh buy this book and it will help you with your concepts and go from there" - that's not what I am talking about, hope that makes sense.

What I really want to get at is de-constructing the GMAT, breaking it down as simply as possible. Also, I know all topics are important in the GMAT, but what are the few key absolutely life and death concepts we should know that will push the score to the next level.

Hope this makes sense to everyone.

Quant Topics:
Arithmetic
Algebra
Geometry
Word Problems
Data Sufficiency

Verbal
Critical Reasoning
Sentence Correction

Thanks,
Rakshith

Rakshit, it is good you know where you stand and what you want to achieve. I advice you to read my gmat experience. The link : 670-to-710-a-long-journey-without-destination-still-happy-141642.html

It is not easy to score 700+ and those who are not so 700+ born aspirants must divide the gmat into categories and improve the fundamentals gradually from one category to another.

I would advice not only to read my debrief but also of other people to get motivation and strategies.
