Hi all,

I am new here because although I have being in this love hate relationship with the GMAT for over a year now (with a big pause in between). Unfortunately, I have discovered just now that the reason I could not enter gmat club before was the WiFi connection of my library! Luckily from home it works and I am very happy to be able to connect now with this great & supportive community.

So here is my struggle story, I started preparing for the GMAT thinking it would be a walk in the park and I have paid the price of that mistake.... they told me “it’s high school math and English” and I thought easy my favourite subjects back then....First score: 540

I continued to study using magoosh materials and the OG and went for another trial and yet another trial and scores were 600...600....

Months later I have been preparing myself with some of the Manhattan notes (I am not 100% sure if they are the ones everyone here refers to), did again all the quant exercises from the OG scoring 80%-90%, did the 6 Practice Exams in the GMAT Prep and scored from 620, 650, 660 and even a 700.

Last week I sat for my exam number ...? I do not even remember anymore but I know that I have not many more goes to reach the MAX ever and scored again 600. So I am kind of desperate now.

I have one more month to study (part time) and get the 650-700 I need to get into the my dream school where I know I have competitve chances even if I get a 650 applying in the last round but I do need to get that damn 650!!!

My focus has been mainly on quant because although my verbal was not marvelous (v32), in quant in the real exam I have never passsed 39 and that has brought my score down...

So long story short, I wanted to I ask for your advice on what strategy to take...
Is there somewhere in this ocean of posts a post describing a good strategy for quant? Or what would you recommend for me to do?

Although I have improved my main problem is still pacing...

I would be willing to pay for a course or teacher but there are hundreds of them and I cannot allow myself failing once more.

And I am questioning myself whether starting now with new materials would add any value to my preparation or simply consume my limited time.

As said, I would I like to focus again on Quant, was planning to dive in detail through all the manhattan materials and questions i have and then for verbal maybe e-gmat since everyone talks so well about it?

Any help or adviced is highly welcomed and appreciated...

B.

I would recommend to go for TTP instead of egmat. Try out TTP's course for 5 days(free trial) and you will get a better picture of their structure and pedagogy.

Best wishes!

Hi blancaarias,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. So, since, even after preparing for some time, you are at Q39, it’s clear that you have numerous quant weaknesses that must be addressed, and that what you have done to prepare so far has not been effective in getting you to quant mastery. Thus, in order to improve your quant skills, you need an ensure that moving forward, you are learning linearly so that you individually learn each quant topic and practice that topic until you've gained mastery.

To study in such a way, I agree with the others that you should use TTP. We are the top-rated quant course here on GMAT Club and also offer a full-access 5-day trial.

If you have any further questions regarding your plan or about Target Test Prep, feel free to each out to me directly.

Let’s do this!!

I, personally, did not get any help from egmat verbal. Only their SC is helpful, but not helpful too much.
For verbal: try all the tutorials from Thursdays with Ron.

Are you timing yourself when you do practice questions?

You should do that regularly - try starting with 5 Quant questions and a 10-minute timer. Guess if you need to. (It's going to feel weird to guess, since you'll be thinking 'oh, this is just practice, I should finish every question - but what you're practicing here is timing, not getting all of the problems right.) Gradually work your way towards doing more questions in a row, and tougher questions, without getting off pace. Timing is a skill exactly like any content skill, and you need to practice it!
