I am finding gmatclub tests so difficult that I am almost losing interest and confidence in Quant. I am totally fine with OG questions but getting more than half incorrect on gmatclub tests. I am not sure what extra I can do for Quant other than the tests and the OG questions. Please advice.

What is your target score? If you want to score in the mid 600s on up I think the OG is not sufficient. Many problems on the OG are too easy.

Concentrate on the fundamentals. You may want to consider Jeff Sackman's GMAT math (can't remember the exact name). Good coverage of fundamentals with good explanations. Also, the Manhattan GMAT guides are very good. Don't use OG as your only source.

gmatclub tests are supposed to be 700+ level questions so yeah they will be hard . I wouldnt be discouraged by them but i would want to know how to do them because you will be seeing them if you are doing well on the real test

The GMAT Club tests, as many have mentioned before, are 700+ level questions and hence it would be hard. But I think it's important, if you are aiming for a 700+, for you to realize that using these tests as a way to identify and learn new concepts and tactics is extremely crucial. So it can be said for any other test you take. Try to use an error log or Walker's Timer with the tests and see how you perform. But don't get discouraged. Lot of people have taken the tests and "suffered" but they are always thankful after they get a 48Q.

I had the same feeling when I started solving problems in the MGMAT guides. Not that they are very easy now but I have a good comfort feeling with them now. Maybe after few days of exposure to the hardcore GMATClub tests you will also get comfortable with such questions.

I guess the trick is to never shy away but to keep constantly nibbling away at them. I am sure that you will get to your comfort zone with such question.

Thank you all for all the support. I will keep doing the tests and see what results I get.

Don't focus on results! Yes, don't focus on those results as many of the tests are taken by gmatclub members twice or thrice so the percentile is not correct measure of your ability.

Use these tests to train your mind to see tough questions on GMAT.

I tried out the (temporarily free) tests over labor day, and I was similarly surprised. I'm not sure how preparatory they really are for the hard questions on the GMAT, since they didn't seem to have a great deal in common with the questions I've been seeing on the GMATPrep software, but they were certainly challenging.

Hey guys, sorry to sort of derail this, but what % of 600-700 level quant questions (I work through the ones posted on the forums) should I be getting correct to get a Q45?

I know that's not too great of a Quant score, but I really struggle with the subject, and would be more than happy to hit that score.

On some areas, I get about 80-90% of the questions correct (such as word problems/percents/stats/fractions), but on algebra (mainly raw math equations) i can barely get say 20% of them correct. My test is in 3 days and I've abandoned all hope when it comes to algebra. (I solve word problems by testing answers and/or testing variables).

So, is it okay if I get all 300-500 (yeah, I get assigned Qs as low as this on Mgmat tests) and 500-600 questions correct, and roughly 60% of the 600-700 questions correct to hit a Q45?
