Hello, i have been struggling with my prep since five months and my score has not moved ahead of even 500, my main mistakes is getting one or the other wrong in the first five questions with silly mistakes and hassle and stress...i hv done most of my basics from manhattan and princeton and everywhere , i really feel its the management issue on my part.
Im really doubting whether its my quant incapability or my sheer dumbness that im nt getting my score. Suggest me wat to do.

I think this is good start as you know what your mistake is, atleast try to void such mistakes but as you mention your score is below 500 , I would recommend you daily practice questions on Gmat Club , this will help you gain confidence.

Hi
A score of 500 suggests that you need to work on the basics. MGMAT guide books are sufficient for theory and practice. Time your practice sessions. Solve chunks of questions in a limited time, say 10 questions in 20 min. While practicing from the Gmatclub use the timer. In this way, you will improve your timing. You can refer to the Ultimate Quant megathread of the Gmatclub for theory on Quant.

Then you can start solving questions from the OG.

To move ahead of 500 score, you should relook into quant basics from either MGMAT or GMAT Club math book.

After that, you can practice 500 and 600 level questions from below link

souvonik2k thanks for the great suggestion, but i just wanted to add that i have completed my og twice, and i never faced such problems, they seemed to go quite smoothly and even the manhattan problem sets in the end were all easy at that point of time but it just happens at the test time wen i lose it. My pacing and analyzation is the problem that im struggling hard to recover from.

Hi
I would suggest to analyze the test thoroughly using the Gmatclub error log. It will help you assess which topics you are taking more time than usual during the test. Then you can work more on those topics. The following post may help you:
