Hi,

I recently sat for the official GMAT test. With a 36V/30Q, I feel like I could perform better on the Quant section. Prior to the exam I used the Kaplan study materials. I plan on studying for another 3 months to improve my skills before I take the exam again. I am considering purchasing the Manhattan Prep Advanced Quant book, but I have some concerns.

To my understanding, this book is most helpful to those already scoring pretty high (around the mid-40 range) on the Quant section. I briefly read through Manhattan's Quant Foundations book, and I was able to complete a majority of the practice problems. With that being said, is it worth it for me to purchase this book or is there a better option? I would consider their strategy set, however my ESR results showed that I performed around the same on each Quant sub-section so I'd rather have one book than 5. Bottom-line is: I'm looking for something that will help me improve in Quant overall to increase my score by at least 50 points. I tend to do better with self-study, but I am open to other mediums.

Thanks!

I think you should go from the questions in the Foundations -> The Five Math guides (Fractions & Percents, Algebra, Word Problems, Geometry, Number Properties) -> OG questions -> Advanced Quant/Jeff Sackman Sets -> GmatClub tests. You’d be surprised how useful the 5 sub-divisions are, and honestly, jumping into Advanced Quant while scoring Q30 won’t be useful because you won’t get anything out of it and you’ll end up memorizing the solutions instead of actually understanding them. You should be able to get your 50 point increase with just those 5 guides. Also be sure to focus on understanding the concepts instead of memorizing the solutions.

Hope that helps.

I forgot to mention: I, too, also used the Manhattan guides and scored Q46 before even touching the Advanced quant. I created an error log and re-did each questions I missed. I also Focused on understanding the solutions as well rather than memorizing them. I’d also recommend jeff Sackman’s GMAT questions on Gmathacks.com. He has 800 foundational questions that tackle everything you’re likely to see and the 1000 “challenge” questions once you’re done with the 800. I used the 1000 challenge questions and thought it was helpful because it basically drilled the concepts into my brain via repetition. I’d imagine the 800 would do the same for you.
