Hi Asawa7,

To start, we have to better define the 'issues' that you're facing in the Quant section. For example, there's a big difference between getting Quant questions wrong because you're making little mistakes as you work through them (but knowing the underlying formulas/math rules involved) and not knowing how to approach Quant questions because you just don't know the content. The GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam - and the content that you'll face in the Quant section comes from a limited assortment of Quant questions. It's important to remember that the Quant section of the GMAT is NOT a 'math test'; it's a critical thinking test that requires lots of little calculations as you work through it.

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?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi, Asawa7

GMAT quant is not just composed of pure math questions but logics. If you are a beginner, it could be difficult to solve those logic questions. The most important thing to improve your score is to be familiarized with those question type and solidify the basic concepts. Also, you should keep in mind that there also exist sequence and strategy to be a master of quant.

Focus on DS first. DS can be a quick win. If you master DS, it will be easier and less time consuming to tackle PS problems. There are patterns and logic to GMAT quant problems and you can save a lot of time especially in DS questions. With Math Revolution ’s ’Variable Approach’ for DS questions, you can minimize time spent on each question while improving accuracy (over 80 percent) (solving a question in + having a checking time = 2 minute) On average, our students have about 10 minutes to spare before the exam ends. To briefly explain our ’variable approach’, we apply ’variables–equations matching system’ to the DS questions. For example, you first need to count the number of variables and equations given in the question. By doing so, you can determine which answer choice will most likely be the answer. If there are only two variables in a question, you need at least 2 equations to solve the question. Since two conditions in the question usually give 2 separate equations, it is most likely that C (both conditions together are sufficient) will be the answer.

Then, you can apply our ‘IVY approach’ to PS type questions. Our IVY approach for PS focuses on translation of the question words. All the PS questions can be translated into mathematical formula. By applying ‘IVY axiom’, you can quickly solve the questions and have 10 minutes to spare. (More information about our approach: https://www.mathrevolution.com/gmat/vs)

Please let us know if you have further questions.
You can reach us at info@mathrevolution.com

Success is within your reach,
Good luck!
