How to seperate topics better?  [#permalink]

Hey guys,

when I am studying for exams in Uni I always go chapter per chapter before I move on to the next, for example when I had my maths introduction in the first term I had a clear structure of 8 different topics I need to cover ...

Which was like

1) Linear Equations ...
3) Geometry ...
4) Statistics ...

An so on - with the GMAT I find myself in a situation where the only difference I make now is Quant / Non Quant and maybe Problem Solving / DS.
Given that Quant covers so many different topics I think it would be way more efficient to toward my study focus mainly on one topic for a certain study day

For example -> "Wednesday 4 units of Geometry"

The problem now is that I don't really know how to part up the problems besides geometry (which is obvious) but with a lot of questions I don't really know which category they fall under

For example a lot of problems to me are just Algebra but there are certain distinctions, Algebra with a text problem, Algebra problems where you have to find a certain value given that you know that "x+..." is even (etc. I just don't know the exact names of the problems)
Then I see examples that involve Venn Diagrams so for me it is the category statistics and so on.

Long story short, I just don't know how to part up all this different topics and I haven't found a way in my OG software to split it either. It is extremely annoying that when I want to practice medium quant question a whole bunch of different stuff shows up (for example going from statistics to geometry is not really useful to study)

Is there at least one list / guide that breaks down ALL the different topics involved in the GMAT and doesn't only seperate between DS / PS / CR ... etc.?

Thank you Guys

Ohh that's exactly what I was looking for
Seems I could not phrase it the right way to come across that with my own search

Thank you very much, you made my day!

Hi chrtpmdr,

I agree that taking a topical approach to your studying is a great way to learn GMAT quant. Specifically, you may want to follow an approach that allows you to individually learn each GMAT quant topic, and then practice each topic until you’ve gained mastery. If you find that your current resources do not allow you to study in such a way, consider using additional resources. To see what is available, check out some of the success stories of past GMAT students as well as reviews of various GMAT prep courses to see what prep materials have worked for other test-takers.
