Hi everyone,

I have been studying for the GMAT at a relatively slow pace so far (about 14 hours per weekend) and have noticed a fair improvement in my quant ability (I'm basically focussing on this sice the verbal is not a problem for me).

I'm primarly using Kapland and I'm really struggling with the DS problems, particularly the number ones (is x greater than y etc)

Firstly, does anyone have any advice on where I can find other good, tough DS problems

Secondly, in people's experiences do you think that the Kaplan DS problems are harder, easier or equivalent to those on the real test

Cheers

14 hours is much much more than I have been studying lately. I just starting coming into work early and getting about 30-45 minutes a day. Too much distraction at home to study.

I'm also looking for more DS/math practice problems. I have GMAT plus but the catch is, there are no explanations. Just answers. I hear the math problems in the OG are too easy. So Im also looking for additional problems. You can also do the problems on this BB.

What year of the Kaplan book to do you have? Ive been using a 1997 guide.

I have Kaplan 2003, Princeton Review 2004, Arco 2002, The Kaplan maths workbook and the latest Kaplan 800.

I'm saving the Kaplan 800 until I'm up to speed on the other books.

I worked through the maths workbook from start to finish and found I was getting pretty good, but then when I started to do the CD tests I was having trouble with timing, and the DS questions in general. I know from experience with chartered accounting exams in the UK that the timing thing is something that simply comes with practice, so I'm not too worried about it. The DS problem however is another matter.

I've probably gone in for a bit of overkill on the study time, but I have always found maths a problem (I have a history degree, and despite what people think you don't have to be good at maths to be a good accountant!) and I really want a high score because I have set my heart on going to Harvard or Stanford.

What techniques have you found useful ?

There was a post some where on this BB a week or so ago. He recommended for the problems you have trouble with, keep them in a binder and practice them till you get it right. I have found this helpful. If you see this type of problem again you know it flat, the numbers are just different. I've got my binder started, as I study I add new problems to it and as I learn them I move the problems I've mastered out.
Math is my weak spot. I just plan to practice till I can master all the problems in the books.

Lisa 12322,

I pretty much came to same conclusion independently, now I have a spiffy new binder that is filling with worrying rapidity. My colleagues all find it exceptionally amusing that I'm spending a load of time in the office doing "silly" maths problems.
