Hi all,

I scored an Q43 (50% percentile) in the quant section. I need to improve to Q47. Thus I was wondering on what type/difficulty level of questions I should focus on.
I read many posts, such as https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-impro ... 41670.html. However I am not pretty sure what the range of question is.
Should I focus on the "hardest" questions, such as these https://gmatclub.com/forum/150-hardest- ... 04134.html?

Do you have an advice, e.g. focus on 600-700 and have them consistently correct. Become really familiar with 700+ questions, etc.

Thank you

Your answer lies in your question. Its really important that you focus on 600-700 and have them consistently correct. 75% questions that we get in GMAT are medium difficulty questions, and if you correctly answer them consistently, you can easily get Q47-Q48. Also focus on general areas than the advanced areas.

Great, thanks for the above. Sounds reasonable. I am signing up for the GMAT Club Test. Since half of them are 700+ questions and half 500-700, I assume I have a good mixture of questions. I went through the OG twice and the OG Math also and when I am doing 30-question sessions, I have approx. 80% correct. So I guess time to switch to GMAT Club tests to get some new questions.

Sounds good. Also I suggest you get the QP1. I found the quant questions tougher than OG and quite helpful. Best of luck. :thumbup:

I assume QP1 is exam pack 1 from GMAC? Yes, I already purchased that. Thus, I will try to get exam pack 2 too to get 2 new fresh tests.
I am planning to give my next GMAT try at end of July, i.e. in 3 months with 1-2 hours studying per day. Hope that is sufficient.

No, QP1 is Question Pack 1, Exam Pack 2 is EP2. I think 1 hour is less. 2-3 hours/day for 5 days/week, 1 day CAT and review CAT, and 1 day rest.

Ah,ok. I assume GMAC's QP1 questions are different from the OG Quant Guide? Will definitely have a look at it.
Hehe, yea the more the better. However there's always a trade off between your family, job and the GMAT, especially when you are >30 years old ;)
