Hello everyone

I want to get a full score on the Quant section. And for that, I need to practice rigorously. But, I'm unsure of where to start.

Can Someone answers the below questions
1. From which source do I start?
2. What plan should I follow to have daily Maths practice?
3. From where to practice Hard Questions?
4. Is there a book which has tough questions with solutions of each Question?

Hello

Everyone including verified GMAT scorers suggests official guides and manhattan prep strategy guides. If you encounter any problems to resolve quant problems, check them for the GMAT Club solution. I have been benefited from seeing the posts of Bunuel. You can see the book ''MGMAT Advanced Quant'' for hard questions. If you are not happy with solutions to any quant problem from any source, post them at the GMAT club for a smarter solution.

Thank you

Hi ayushsaxena04,

About 3 weeks ago, you posted that you wanted to improve a 460 to a 700+, so that broader factors in making that goal happen would also apply to what you're asking about in this post. Before I 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:

Studies:
1) Have you taken the Official GMAT yet (is that 460 from an Official Exam or a practice CAT/mock?)?
2) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
3) What study materials have you used so far?
4) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi ayushsaxena04,

Since I do not know too much regarding your situation with the GMAT, I’ll provide some general advice on how to improve your GMAT quant skills.

First off, you should follow a study plan that allows you to learn linearly so that you can slowly build mastery of one GMAT topic prior to moving on to the next. Within each topic, begin with the foundations and progress toward more advanced concepts. Following such a plan will allow you to methodically build your GMAT quant skills and ensure that no stone is left unturned.

For example, if you are learning about Number Properties, you should develop as much conceptual knowledge about Number Properties as possible. In other words, your goal will be to completely understand properties of factorials, perfect squares, quadratic patterns, LCM, GCF, units digit patterns, divisibility, and remainders, to name a few concepts.

After carefully reviewing the conceptual underpinnings of how to answer Number Properties questions, practice by answering 50 or more questions just from Number Properties. When you are working on learning to answer questions of a particular type, start off taking your time, and then seek to speed up as you get more comfortable answering questions of that type.

As you do such practice, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get right. If you got a remainder question wrong, ask yourself why. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not properly apply the remainder formula? Was there a concept you did not understand in the question? By carefully analyzing your mistakes, you will be able to efficiently address your weaknesses and in turn improve your GMAT quant skills. Number Properties is just one example; follow this process for all quant topics.

When you do dozens of questions of the same type one after the other, you learn just what it takes to get questions of that type correct consistently. If you aren't getting close to 90 percent of questions of a certain type correct, go back and seek to better understand how that type of question works, and then do more questions of that type until you get to around at least 90 percent accuracy in your training. If you get 100 percent of some sets correct, even better. Each time you strengthen your understanding of a topic and your skill in answering questions of a particular type, you increase your odds of hitting your score goal. You know that there are types of questions that you are happy to see and types that you would rather not see, and types of questions that you take a long time to answer correctly. Learn to more effectively answer the types of questions that you would rather not see, and make them into your favorite types. Learn to correctly answer in two minutes or less questions that you currently take five minutes to answer. By finding, say, a dozen weaker quant areas and turning them into strong areas, you will make great progress toward hitting your quant score goal. If a dozen areas turn out not to be enough, strengthen some more areas.

So, work on accuracy and generally finding correct answers, work on specific weaker areas one by one to make them strong areas, and when you take a practice GMAT or the real thing, take all the time per question available to do your absolute best to get right answers consistently. The GMAT is essentially a game of seeing how many right answers you can get in the time allotted. Approach the test with that conception in mind, and focus intently on the question in front of you with one goal in mind: getting a CORRECT answer.

In order to follow the path described above, you may consider using a self-study course, so take a look at the GMAT Club reviews for the best quant courses. You also may find it helpful to read the following article about how to increase your GMAT quant score.
