Hello All,

Thanks in advance for the help. I took my first GMAT in October and got a 720 (Q44, V45). I am a 42 year old Military Officer trying to get into a good EMBA program (preferably Wharton or Columbia). I have been told that although 720 is a good score, the low Quant is going to set off alarm bells. I plan to retake in February before the March 1st deadline for Wharton. The application deadline is February, but you can take GMAT up until 1 March.

For my first GMAT, I worked though the MGMAT series and the OG, but I think I crammed it in too fast for someone who has not taken a math course in 20+ years. As I have started to study for the retake, I find that the Questions and Solutions make more sense. Maybe I just needed some time for the material to digest.

I have gone through the OG 12 Quant section again, using the MGMAT online guide, which has been helpful. I am going through the OG Quant Review 2nd Ed, currently and should be finished by tomorrow. I am a liberal arts major, so I am probably not going to be a Q51, but I believe 48-49 is achievable.

My question is this, I am looking for a good source of Quant questions to help reinforce my study. I looked at the GMAT Club tests and they seem a bit above my math level and are aimed at someone studying for a 51. It seems like Jeff Sackman's Quant questions may be what I am looking for, but just wanted to check with you all to see if that makes sense.

Thank you again for the advice,
Chris

I think you are right. Sackman's material would be good for your at this point in your studies.

Your score of 720 is both excellent and balanced. You should be okay. But for a super high score, purchase Sackmann's Extreme Challenge set. I personally used all of his set, and they were amazing. I do, though, strongly urge you to study the GMATClub tests. They're certainly worth it. But first go through Sackmann's Extreme Challenge problems and see how you perform.
