Hi,

I'm considering which Quant courses to go with. I need to get from a 42 Quant to a 50/51 in about 70ish hours of prep.

Options are:

- Target Test (currently having a free trial now. Looks promising, but 180+ hours for the full course is way too much)
- Math Revolution (looks promising, but a bit sceptical of the method / approach)
- GMATClub package (I really don't like the explanations.)
- Maxing out on MGMAT packages

Any thoughts would be great. I realise that there are loads of reviews on this site, but they often are quite generic. If anyone has any specific insights I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks!

The GMAT Club Tests are not really a course a program so I would not consider them per se as an option to Math Rev or Target Test Prep. GMAT Club provides tests and questions, which you can get usually with the purchase of a course from either Math Revolution or TTP

TTP: https://gmatclub.com/marketplace/targettestprep.html
Math Revolution \$129 with GMAT Club Tests included https://gmatclub.com/tests-beta/user/ge ... =subscribe

P.S. If you don't mind, what do you find our explanations lack? What would you improve?

Three reasons really (all personal opinion):

1.) I'm really liking the video explanations on Target Test Prep. I find they are really good at animating the content

2.) I find the written explanations not as clear as MGAMT for example

3.) I find the links to the community quite distracting from the expert (who I actually want to know more from)

Hope that's clear!

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback.
P.S. I would not be discouraged by the time and 180 hours. I am sure they meant to be comprehensive rather than onerous with their content. The time investment usually depends on the score improvement you need to achieve, so if you want to get 50 more points, you can probably get it done in 50 hours. However, to get mys core 200 points up, I had to spend lots of day and lots of hours on the GMAT. Frankly, I did not have much else to worry about (besides work that is), so I was happy to invest it. Moreover, even if you overdo it, it is not like you are wasting your time learning Klingon language or something like that, you are improve your math skills, which will be a life-long skill that you will leverage at work and home when your kids start asking you for help with their 2nd grade homework....

Hi londonconsultant,

In a prior post from about 1 month ago (here - https://gmatclub.com/forum/should-i-re- ... l#p2036805) you stated that you had already scored 730/Q49. Did you actually earn that Score on the Official GMAT (and if so, then when?)? Most Test Takers can't "luck" their way into that type score - and there's a significant difference in skill levels between a Q49 and a Q42. Before anyone here 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.

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

Hi Rich,

I did indeed get a Q49, after about 3 months revision with MGMAT and the OG. I earned it on the official GMAT in a real exam about a year ago (7 April 2017)

I've been re-revising for just over a week now, which explains the score difference a bit. Hopefully I can remember how to get it back up to a Q49 at least before I take it further!

Objective is basically to get back up to speed and a little better in as short a period as possible! (like I say, about 70 hours).

Thanks!

As a quick P.S, you'll notice that a lot of the advice on my previous posts is to retake the GMAT, hence wanting to retake

Hi londonconsultant,

Thanks for having an interest in our product!! We definitely offer great materials for those who can’t spare too much time preparing for the GMAT.

The best way to improve your quant score is to focus on the DS type of quant problems. You may save PS for later if you don’t have much time to study. If you can spend about 3 hours a day for 2 weeks on the DS, hitting a score of 49 is totally doable. But hitting a score above 49 is another story. So you should consider spending more time preparing for the GMAT quant. Here is our guide to improve your score above 49.
https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-ultimate ... 09801.html

Our Variable Approach for DS help students answer questions correctly and save time significantly. On average, if lower than 45 points, our students improve +5 points on the quant and have about 10 minutes to spare before the math section ends. and have about 10 minutes to spare before the math section ends. Here is an example how the Variable Approach can be applied. When you encounter a DS problem, you first need to count the number of variables and equations given in the question. By doing so, you can determine which answer choice will most likely be the answer. If there are only two variables in a question, you need at least 2 equations to solve the question. Since two conditions in the question usually give 2 separate equations, it is most likely that C (both conditions together are sufficient) will be the answer. Math Revolution offers many more techniques and tips to solve questions easily to save time and improve accuracy.

londonconsultant, we offer both free trial pack and free video lessons to students on our site mathrevolution.com So check it out to see if our material works for you. Also don’t forget to try our free diagnostic test!!

Please let us know if you have further questions.
You can reach us at info@mathrevolution.com

Good luck!
