Hey
So i am retaking the gmat exam again in 2 weeks since i screwed up quant in my previous attempt. (q43, v44)
After analyzing myself ive realised that timing and lack of practice is the issue.
I dont find any question to be hard or unsolvable
Its just that im taking too much time in even the easy ones.
My average time for problem solving is 2.5- 3 minutes while ds is a better 1:45.

I have not solved any maths questions from any resource apart from gmat prep mocks and 2 manhatten mock tests till now. And im sure with just a bit of practice i can easily get 49, i even scored 49 on two mocks

If anyone could guide me on the perfect material as well as strategy to increase my accuracy and speed by practicing on it
I would be grateful.
My verbal is consistently above 40 so that is relatively sorted in my opinion.

Thank you.

Dear Ayushjoshi07,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

One possibility is to sign up for Magoosh. We have 500+ GMAT Quant questions, and we will show you your average rate of solution---we have all kinds of metrics you can use to track your work.

I will also recommend this blog, which may be helpful:
How to do GMAT Math Faster

Finally, I strongly suspect that if you do some intensive mindfulness practice over the next few weeks, it will help you focus. Here's a service that you might find helpful:
Mindful Test Taking
If you can remain calm and relax under pressure, then your full creative intelligence can operate. When stress is active in your system--even when you are not registering the feeling of being stressed--it can dull the edge of your mental agility, making you less insightful and more formulaic in your solutions. Mindfulness can help you achieve meaningful stress reduction that will be effective in high pressure situations.

I hope you find this helpful. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Mike :-)
