Hello guys! I have taken the GMAT this week, and as expected I have done very good in the Verbal section but poorly in the Quant. In particular, my overall score is 660, composed of 38 quant and 42 verbal. Do you have any advice on how to improve my quant score? I was following Magoosh training which was effective for verbal, but not for quant apparently. Thank you for your help

You're luckier than several other test takers because improving the quant score is a lot easier than improving the verbal score. A quant score of 38 says that several of your concepts are not clear. I would advise you to focus on basic quant concepts and then practice on topic-specific questions. Having a strong timing strategy is an absolute must. Make sure to not spend too much time on the hard question; get in the habit of letting go super difficult questions. In short, you can most definitely improve your quant score, in a short duration, provided you are focused and practice diligently. All the best.

You have a lot of scopes to improve the quant score. First, revise your basic and concepts, then do the OG and Quant review. Once you got hold on concepts try TTP. It would help you correct yourself sectional wise. All the best.

Hi pietro0000,

You can try out the TTP course as it is phenomenal and covers the entire syllabus really well. Plus it has great reviews on GMATCLUB. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. You will also find the following link helpful.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hello pietro0000,

Scoring 660 in the first attempt in the GMAT test is appreciating. And assuming your target score to be 720+, you are very close to your target score.Your score tells the complete story in short. V 42 is exceptionally well, but Q 38 doesn’t seem to be competitive enough.
