Hi thelion10,
Following a study plan that is
linear, thorough, and focused is a major key to improving your GMAT quant score. In other words, you need to ensure that your study plan allows you to focus on each GMAT quant topic one at a time. By following that method, you’ll be able to first learn all you need from a particular topic, and then practice questions from that topic until you’ve gained mastery. So, you’ll attack each topic in two phases:
Learning and
Practice. Let’s use Geometry as an example.
Phase #1: Learn all you can about Geometry.First and foremost, you must learn all aspects of Geometry:
-- area and perimeter formulas
-- special right triangle ratios
-- similar triangles
-- inscribed shapes
-- 3D geometry
-- shaded regions
-- etc.
Once you have fully learned about the necessary Geometry concepts, you can dive into focused practice.Phase #2: Practice your butt off to ensure mastery in Geometry.
Now that you’ve learned all you can about Geometry, you need to dive into problems sets of, say, 15 or 20 questions at a time. When first starting out with this practice, do not worry about your speed; just focus on accuracy. As you begin to improve your accuracy, you organically will get faster. Ultimately, shoot to do 100+ problems, so you can ensure that you’ve thoroughly practiced each Geometry concept. After completing each problem set, take as much time as you need to analyze your wrong answers. When analyzing them, determine why you incorrectly answered each question. Did you make a careless error? Did you misapply a concept? Did you forget a formula? Did you not understand what the question was asking? By understanding WHY you got a question wrong, you’ll be able to clearly identify and then strengthen your weaknesses. Geometry is just one example; rinse and repeat for all other quant topics.
