Guys,

I am not new to this forum but still I am not able to prepare. Every now and then I am finding a new concept used to solve the question in quant. Is this because I know very less concepts or the number of concepts are way too more in GMAT. I am finding it difficult to improve my Quant. All suggestions are welcome. If some one can share study technique for Quant. It is very difficult to remember all the concepts under time pressure.

Thank you.

Regards,

QZ.

Hello. What is your current score? GMAT Quant is more about logic than math, in my opinion. You should be familiar with concepts, but only logic will help you solve a problems

Hi, Thanks for reply.

My current score is in between 30 to 36. You are right that logic takes the front seat but I find it difficult to use logic than concepts. Though I am not that good in concepts too, but concepts comes naturally as a second habit. Logic takes time.

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) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi EMPOWERgmatRichC,

Firstly, Thanks for reply.

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? Since May 2013, I am preparing for GMAT, but could not focus properly. I have given GMAT once and scored 480 Q30 V 19. I hope this is the correct split, but sure about 480.
2) What study materials have you used so far? I have used almost all materials eg. GMAT club questions, Manhattan, Veritas, Magoosh, Princeton, Kaplan, e-gmat etc. But score didn't improve much. I accept that I never studied full time for GMAT.
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
My highest score is in Manhattan 580 Q38 V27
Veritas ; 470 Q30 V20
Princeton; 530 Q36 V 28

Goals:
4) What is your goal score? My Goal score is 740+
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT? I am planning to take GMAT in Feb 2018.
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School? I planning for July 2018.
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to? ISB, IIM Ahmedabad, INSEAD, Kellogg, and CBS

Thanks for all help.

Hi QZ,

If you've really been studying off-and-on for the last 4+ years, then your 'early' studies don't matter much - and we should focus on what you've been doing recently. What studying have you done over the last 3 months? What materials have you used? When was the last time you took a FULL-LENGTH CAT with the Essay and IR sections - and how did you score?

Hi QZ,

Since you have not taken any FULL-LENGTH CATs (with the Essay and IR sections) yet, then you MUST take one soon (perhaps this weekend). We need a measure of your skills right now - including your skills, strengths and weaknesses - so that we can put together the proper study plan for you. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can discuss how best to proceed.
