Hi all. Can i please get some advice on Quant? I've been studying for the GMAT for about a month, but I cannot solve any quant problems on my own. Whenever I try to practice quant problems I just feel completely lost. Looking at the answers/ solving methods makes sense to me, but I would never be able to get there on my own.

I have purchased

MGMAT foundations of math, and I've watched a couple of Thursdays with Ron videos.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice, please?

I agree with the previous posters - take a deep breath and remind yourself that studying for the GMAT is a learning process. If you were really unfamiliar with math before you started studying, you're not going to wake up one morning and suddenly be able to solve everything. And there are a lot of steps along the way from zero to mastery - you probably

have learned a lot since you've been studying, you just haven't quite gotten past the point where you're able to consistently use what you know to solve problems.

You didn't describe yourself as 'bad at math', but this might be some interesting reading for you regardless:

https://www.theatlantic.com/education/a ... th/280914/Finally, what have you done with Foundations of Math so far? Have you worked through all of the chapters? Done the drills? Have you made flashcards/cheat sheets? Also, what happens when you try to solve the easier problems from the very beginning of

the Official Guide - do you get the right answer but take too much time, or do you not know where to start, or somewhere in between?
