I have written gmat twice ...and yes gearing towards third take

First time in Nov 2011 my Math Score was 48
Second time in Jun 2012 my math Score was 49
Third time I want to make my math score 50/51

I have used 3 practice tests from Manhattan with T#1=Q40, T#2=Q46 T#3=Q43
Multiple times of GMAT prep

GMAT Prep Old version (before 2008) T#1= Q49, T#2 = Q47
GMAT Prep New version (after 2008) T#1 = Q48, T#2 = Q47, T#2 R#2 = Q49 T#2 R#3 = Q50 (Repetition)

Actual GMAT Q49

Materials I have are

1) Balance 3 MGMAT tests - Quants are not difficult but time taking to solve
2) GMAT Prep Question Set Pack 1 - Did verbal but not quantitative
3) Have Manhattan Advanced Quant Book - But feeling asleep going thru thick book
4) Have access to GMAT Club tests - Will definitely do this time, missed last time

Guys please suggest what other additional material I will need for my preparation to touch Q to 50/51

There is no mention of verbal as I am ashamed of my verbal score

Kindly help

I think the gmatclub tests will serve you well. Great for timing and they cover a good deal of material on the test. I think the level of diffuculty ranges from the 600s to the high 700s. I thought these tests were excellent at helping me work on my timing.

Second, I reccomend the 5 MGMAT quant books. Especially the number properties book. These books are simply laid out, with relevant exercises, that closely mirror the actual test.

Best of luck going from a 49 to a 50/51. Anything is possible, but that is going to require a great level of attention to detail.

Looking at your scores, honestly your Q49 is right in the range that you should be expecting. If you are shooting for a high overall score, you need to spend more time on your verbal.

But if you are for some reason still tyring to increase your Quant up to Q50 (which might only bump your overall score up by 10-20 points) then I would use the Manhattan GMAT Advanced quant book, or the 5 quant guides. Doing practice problems only will not be the best way to study for Quant. You need to learn the best strategies and knowledge to save yourself time and effort so you can give your best to EVERY questions.

In your case, I would sugges that you work VERY hard on verbal, and spend less time on quant so you can push your score up. With such a low verbal score, your overall GMAT score is never going to get into the 700 range no matter how well you do in quant.

Here's our ultimate verbal study plan: study-plan-for-verbal-gmat-98342.html

Good luck!

roboas Thanks for mentioning about the MGMAT Quant books. Especially I was thinking of buying the number properties

book and now you mention it, I will just go ahead and buy the book. Next most of my mistakes are coming from Number properties DS section. Does Number properties book have adequate practice questions ?

GMATLA you have hit rightly in my weakest point. I have spent all my time preparing for verbal in between exam 1 and exam 2

Here are my verbal scores

17/03 Manhattan T#1 V31
23/03 T#2 V33
<DATE NA> T#3 V35
14/04 GMAT Prep V1.0 (before 2008) T#1 V27
21/04 GMAT Prep V1.0 (before 2008) T#1 V31
GMAT Prep V2.0 (after 2008) T#2 V31
13/05 GMAT Prep V2.0 (after 2008) T#1 V35
GMAT Prep V2.0 (after 2008) T#2 V31 (Take#2)
GMAT Prep V2.0 (after 2008) T#2 V33 (Take#3)

Real GMAT I landed in V23 (All the tests I have approached in official conditions to build stamina and correct timings problems)

So little de-motivated for trying even higher and higher verbal scorers

so I thought 10-20 math points are for grab...why not ?

I think that all those who aspire to reach 700 score at least should read this article by MGAMT http://www.manhattangmat.com/articles/break-700.cfm

verbal scores are much more important than quant scores on GMAT. So, start reading! (economist, WSJ, FT, and such)
