Hello sajalsharma,

Can you please share the resources that you used for Quant preparation?
Also in which type of questions you are making mistakes : like algebra, P&C, word problems ?
Source from which you practiced Quant ? OG or used any other source as well ?

With above information it will become easy for to guide you in your preparation.

Also Quant is all about practice.. I would suggest to find your weak topics and search for questions based on them on gmatclub.
With questions people share solution as well. It will be helpful to know methods and shortcuts for tough problems.

All d best :) :)

Focus your studies on medium level questions. Don't worry too much about the very difficult ones - focus on getting the medium ones right.

Avoid stupid mistakes on the easy ones.

If you use question bank such as http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test - choose questions where the % of students getting that question correct is around 50%-70%.

The <50% questions tend to be difficult - so you want to make usre you get that sweet spot of 50% to 70% all correct.

In terms of topics - for math, that usually involves sequences, exponents, algebra -- avoid complex topics such as mixtures, combinatorics, etc.

Hi sajalsharma,

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) What materials have you used?
2) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi

You are not supposed to give correct answer to each hard (700-800) level question, focus on 650 level question and gradually come to hard one, Hard questions mostly based on Relationships of Math, Shortcuts and tricks.

Thanks for your reply...i will certainly take your suggestion into consideration.
I have given a couple of CAT(Kaplan and Veritas) and i scored 650 and 670 in each of them.
According to you, how good or bad is this score for someone who is into GMAT preparation for a couple of months.
Secondly, you said we are not supposed to answer every 700-800 level question correctly. Do you have any idea how many question should one expect of this difficulty level if one is looking to score 750-760. I know there's no exact number but any information on this will help.
Thanks

Hi

I have given a couple of CAT(Kaplan and Veritas)

Though Kaplan and Veritas both are good sources of GMAT Prep but they have not match with GMAC Mock exam (GMAT prep)
whenever you want to know your current position always choose GMAT prep. GMAT Prep have big question pool so reset them when both (CAT 1 and CAT 2) have been taken.

i scored 650 and 670 in each of them. According to you, how good or bad is this score for someone who is into GMAT preparation for a couple of months.

It depends on your starting point, say if your diagnostic CAT Result was 400-450 then 2 month is considerable speed of prep, but if your diagnostic CAT result was around 600 then it is too slow.

if one is looking to score 750-760.

If you looking 750+ score it means you can not afford less than Q49 and V41.

You can also try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. Just by going through these guides and solving the OG will help you reach 600+. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them. Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 and the Quant review for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best.
