Hi Guys,

Need some help!

I feel the OG isnt enough to build strong concepts behind very topic and doesnt help you tackle every type of question asked in the exam.
Even the MGMAT books arent enough for someone who is weak in quant (like me).

I am following the Arun Sharma Quantitative Aptitude book to cover all concepts and types of problems?
Is this a good idea/book to follow?

I plan to finish this book and then move on to the OG and gmatclub problems?

Please advise if this plan makes sense!

Hi,

you have various other resources available which are very specific to GMAT.
Arun sharma's book may not delve so much onto the requirements of GMAT in some topics and may delve more than required in other topics as the book does not cater specifically for GMAT.
even MGMAt books touch very basics for quant.

Thanks Chetan2u

I am a little short of time

Could you suggest the topics I avoid in Arun Sharma and topics i could use them for?

And any alternate resources just to build concepts and strengthen it?

It depends on what are you expecting in Quant and where do you stand.
The topics you should surely avoid in Arun's book are logs, trigonometry and generally CAT involves 2 to 3 steps to come to a difficult answer which may not be the case in GMAT.
Even geometry is more basic in GMAT. try the free resources like GMAT club mathbook and MGMAT too as you already have it. get into depth of statistics or probability and combinations only if you are high in quant.
the topics you see in gmatclub book and OG should generally be touched upon

Thank you so much Chetan2u

Looks good

Last Question :
I currently stand between 37-41 in my mocks. So was looking to strengthen my concepts in Geomtery, Word Problems and Arithmetic.
Arun's book looks like it has different levels in these topics which I thought would help me cover these topics thoroughly.

Should it be suffice for these topics atleast?
