Dear Spongebob02,

I'm happy to respond.

First of all, I am going to recommend this blog article:
How to Study for GMAT Math
Read that carefully and read the linked articles as well.

I will also say that math happens in the details. An irreducible part of most math is being both organized and precise in handling the details. Part of what this means is that it is very hard to learn math by focusing on the broad general view. For example, it would be a poor and useless question to say, "I don't understand square roots"—it is far better to post or read about multiple specific questions and ask your questions in context. Toward that end, I will suggest an article about one of the habits of excellence:
BTW, most official Quant questions and many Quant questions from Magoosh and other independent companies already have been posted here. Before posting a question, always search. The threads with math questions posted are pure gold, because in multiply places experts will explain their approach and give clarification to others who are confused; those are very helpful to read. You can use the "mention this user" feature to ask specific experts. Of course, Bunuel is the math super-genius on GMAT Club, and you are welcome to ask for my input as well.

Finally, I will recommend Magoosh. We have a gigantic library of math lessons in which we cover everything from the basics to the advanced topics. Here's a free sample lesson:
Multiples
Here's a free sample PS question:
Microcurrent in an Electrode
Here's a free sample DS question:
Triangle with Line
When you submit your answer to either one, the next page will have a full video explanation for the problem. Each one of Magoosh's 500+ GMAT Quant practice questions has its own VE: this kind of immediate feedback is exactly what you need to accelerate your understanding of math.

Does all this make sense?
Mike

OG does not has any concepts that are tested in the Exam. It has only the retired Questions. So, you'd need to refer to some other material to re-learn the fundamental concepts tested in Quant. Gmatclub has a free Math book of its own but it is very detailed. So, you may want to skip the portions you understand well. Otherwise you can check the review section to understand which course would suit you best.

Hi Spongebob02,

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) Have you used any other study materials besides the OG?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

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

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

Hi Spongebob02,

Even with almost 4 months of potential study time, raising a 230 to a 700+ will take a significant amount of effort - and you'll have to make big improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. You didn't answer all of my questions though - and some of those answers will help to define whether you might actually "need" a 700+ or not.

1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Considering the work that you'll have to do to raise your score, you would likely benefit a great deal by investing in a GMAT Course of some type (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led).

3) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

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