For some odd reasons i have chosen to take GMAT exam to pursue my carrier in management but i am stuck at a crossroads either to give away GMAT or fight the beast of quant. i haven't had my maths classes since 10th grade which is a big fear factor. To cover that up i went through all the MGAMT quant book and made notes about formulas and tactics but when i started to practice at GMAT club the fear of maths again crept in. I am currently solving 600-700 level questions but the dilemma here is that I am taking 6-7 minutes to solve the question which are on low difficulty of 600-700. I have talked to no of people here on gmat club all of them have advised me to keep practicing as the concepts will get absorbed over period of time and question patterns will start to develop i have solved 100 question from PS but still i haven't been able to map the pattern and to reduce the overall time of my solution.

If some expert could guide and help me out of my dilemma and solve this myth of pattern in GMAT. i would be very thankful. My target is 700

I wouldn't call it a myth. As a standardized test, the GMAT is all about pattern recognition.

You should continue practicing, but you could also look at working with a tutor.

AjiteshArun bundle of thanks for replying back as far as my verbal is concerned i am ok with it i can see patterns but when it comes to quant and i am having problem specially the problems particular to fractions, multiples and rates. every questions has to looked at from different angle and then doing mathematical calculations takes lot of time, even in questions with difficulty 20 i am kaing about 7-8 min.

You must do official tag 600-700 range and do specific topic eg do tag of rate, 600-700, official
there is lot of practice material learn from official guides. GMAT club is gold specially its question banks that's all you need. and keep practicing till you start to solve problems in your dreams. till you get a nightmare and when you wake up you figure it out that you were solving math problem

Hi bangalorelover,

Many Test Takers face pacing problems while dealing with either the Quant or Verbal section (or both). Pacing problems do not exist on their own though - they're the results of OTHER problems. 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 CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
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

Keep working on your quant. And this is not even from a GMAT perspective. In fact, you will be fine working through material from general math resources as well (just choose the right topics). As for the time you take to solve questions, I feel that once you become familiar with (and comfortable with) basic calculations, you should see rapid improvement, until you reach the next plateau. And just to be clear, everyone hits plateaus during prep, not just those with a fine arts background :-)
