Dear friends of GMAT CLUB,
I am here to ask for an advice.
At the beginning of summer I took the GMAT for the first time (after 4-5 months of part time study) and I scored 590 (q40 v32).
I bought the Manhattan Prep Pratice tests and included in the package there was a test to assess the basics of math: I scored 90% in it and the advice was to exercise on the most advanced topics in order to improve the score.
During the summer I continued my improvement doing quant exercises and learning Sentence Correction (I never studied it and I only used my basics of english to complete exercises).

Now I am a bit lost... my target score is 630 - 650 and I think that now I am able to score V34-35, but I don't know how to exercise in an effective manner in order to improve Quant... I always find exercises that I don't know how to attack, especially in Word Problems and Remainders...

Is there a guide or a study plan that I can use to get the score that I want?
Please help :-) :cry:
