Dear experts,

I took 4 GMATprep exams, and 49 on quant each time.

I am puzzled how to improve and get 51 on quant.

currently, I have 8~10 incorrect questions and submit the quant session in about 10min advance.

desire your suggestion because I will take GMAT in one month.

have a nice day

Dear

zoezhuyan,

I'm happy to respond.

You are asking about getting into the most elite territory on the GMAT Quant. Keep in mind that you are in competition with folks who have degrees in fields such as Physics and Engineering. To compete, you need to be getting correct the questions those folks get correct.

On all your math practice, focus on the most advanced math questions. For each hard math question you get wrong, spend a great deal of time studying the solution and taking notes on it. Many of the hardest Quant questions require out-of-the-box thinking: they demand incredible creativity and mental flexibility, and those are deep qualities that can't be generated by simple techniques. You have to do the intentional work to tap into your own deep creativity.

See this blog article:

How to do GMAT Math FasterRead the recommendations in that article carefully.

MGMAT has an "Advanced Quant" book that is good for practice. You may even start looking at math puzzle books, or books of problems from math competitions. You need to get yourself into that sort of mindset to move from 49 to 51 on Quant.

Does all this make sense?

Mike
