Hi Club,

I've just finished the 6 MGMAT preps and I'm scoring around 680 on average. Before that I did the GMATPreps each twice and was scoring mid-600s. I really want to get 720+ to have a good shot at some scholarship money, so I need a boost. According to these MGMAT preps my biggest areas for improvement are as follows:

700-level SC and RC
Geometry (Only got 7 out of 22! Need big time GMAT geometry help)

I'm weak on 600 to 800-level quant questions too; I know how to do the problems but I'm struggling while on the clock. I think practice will improve this area and I don't have to stress too much about it, but I do need a heavy drilling of geometry.

I have most of the MGMAT guides, Sacksmann Bible, GMAT 800, OG 10, 11 & 12, OG Verbal, OG Quant, PR Cracking. I haven't found any of them to be fantastic in their geometry sections and nothing near 700-level RC and SC. Does anyone have any tips or resources specifically for GMAT geometry and 700+ SC and RC?

Hello shanewyatt,

Most here have reported the biggest success with the MGMAT SC book. If you still need help beyond that, perhaps you should try the books in the GMAT fiction thread:

If you are struggling with the RC concepts, you should revisit the intro books. We have had many people report success with the LSAT books, but that applies to more advanced problems.

Regarding geo: The geometry questions on the GMAT (at the 600+ level) test your ability to either solve for an unknown or use simple proof to solve for an odd shaped object. The key with these problems is:

1. WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. If you have a solid foundation in the properties of the various shapes, you can always solve the question. It's usually very indirect, none the less, it is not impossible.

2. SLOW DOWN and don't panic. The problems often look more difficult than they actually are. Knowns are sometimes not directly labeled and you must extrapolate from the knowns given to come up with the remaining knowns.
