My problem sets are divided up by topic, but they're very challenging, so they're not appropriate for everyone. If you're currently scoring in the Q45+ range on diagnostic tests, they might be useful to you.

Hi nikhilc11,

You have to be careful about assuming that working through lots of additional practice questions is what you'll need to score at a much higher level (re: confusing "quantity" of study for "quality" of study). 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 on 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 Rich,

Thanks for reaching out. Please find below the requested information

Studies
1) I have been studying since over 3 months
2) I started quant with MGMAT books(concept+practice questions) and then moved onto solving questions from the official GMAC material- Official guide + Quant review
3) I took a mock last week, the GMAT prep 1 and scored Q39 and V31

Goals

1) My aim is to get to a 700
2) I have 60 days before i take the real GMAT
3) Still working on the final list of colleges. Have zeroed down a few of them until now.

Do these:
GMAT Club Quant Qns + Manhattan Adv Quant Book - enough to get Q48+

Additionally you can solve Jeff Sackmann challenging qns sets if you get sometime.

Do you have the GMATPrep 'question pack' already? If not, that's the next place I would recommend going.

I'll second that recommendation - the GMATPrep add-on question pack would be the perfect next step for someone at your scoring level, and with your prep background. Good luck!

Hi nikhilc11,

Considering this one CAT score - and your score goal - you're going to have to be really efficient about this next phase of your studies. While you could conceivably improve a great deal in another 60 days, your plan seems centered around doing lots of additional practice questions - and that doesn't seem particularly specific in terms of getting you to your goal. To hit 700+, you're going to need to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections.

While you don't have to change your current plan just yet, I suggest that you study as you like for the next week, then take a new FULL-LENGTH CAT. That score will help to define the accuracy of that initial CAT score and how well you might be improving with your current approach.

gmatclub tests can also be accessed in the quiz form and they have a lot of good quality questions. Additionally, since you mentioned that you used Manhattan's Quant books, try their tests as well. Those tests helped me push my Q from 45 to 50.

Thanks umg, I have started taking gmat club quizzes based on a daily basis with a set containing 30 questions(3 topics). Can you tell how the (500/600/700) level questions align with the real gmat? Would it be a good idea to practice from all the categories or one can say skip the 500 level questions to save some time and cover maximum ground?

Most of their 700 Level questions are definitely harder than those that appear in GMAT but then again, we should aim for the Stars to reach the Moon.

On a different note, while revising your answers, do not look at the solution right away. Spend 2 to 3 minutes on every question, irrespective of whether you got it right, and analyze it thoroughly. Think of the alternate and time efficient ways to solve them. Also think about what would you do if have to guess. The aim of this exercise is to discover everything that there is about a question. The number of concepts covered by GMAT is limited but the ways those concepts can be tested are a little less than unlimited :wink: So, the more questions you solve and analyze, the better you understand those ways.

In my view, no source could beat GMAT CLUB CATs for Quant......

Hi Nikhil,

Read Gmat club maths book and take gmat club quant cats.
These are more than sufficient to raise your score to Q50/51.
I raised my quant score to Q50 using these tests only.
No one can beat gclub quant cats.
