I'm currently scoring around the high 500's. What concerns me is my Q score of 29, how can I improve to to the high 30s? And how long should I give myself? I worked through the OG quant guide and read some of the Quant posts on this form but was honestly lost. I've always struggled a lot with math so if someone can give me advice as to how to improve given this? What books should I use? And how long would it realistically take for me to pull a 27 up about 10 points? Would a month be enough? Are there any classes you guys would recommend like Powerscore maybe? Thanks!!!

Here's a study plan for you: gmat-study-plan-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html you can research all the study material through this post also.

I would recommend that you buy some basic quant books so that you can really drill down on the basic concepts and foundations for math. Without those foundations you will not be able to push your score higher. With a score 27 it is obvious that you are still lacking the foundations.

Books like these: http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Math-Ref ... 0967759404 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/193570 ... 1935707590 will help with the basics, and then you can start building through books like the 8 Manhattan GMAT guides (5 of them are quant related) and they will cover EVERY type of problem you can see.

How long you should take to study is totally dependent on how much you study. But I would say that if Quant is a tough subject for you, and you've already been studying, that it could take awhile to see solid improvements. But keep putting the time in and it will pay off. I would recommend also keeping an error log so that you can work through the problems you miss and learn why you are missing them.

Good luck!
