Hi All,

I am someone who has been avg in Math since childhood. Quant is my weakest part amongst all. I have been working on my basics and I still do struggle at some topics when i see the questions I tend to forget the logics.This is worrying me as I want to give the exam next month.

Please help me with a study plan or techniques on how to score well in this section too which will help me get an overall good score.

Thanks

Hello mahisingh ....welcome to the community.

For Quant, there is no shortcut to success. I would generally follow the points below :
1. Use GMAT Club pdf (free !! :) )to refresh and/or learn the concepts tested in the exam.
2. Start practicing 500 level Qs at the links below, and once I reach 90% accuracy I would move to 600 level.
3. Similarly, at 600 level I would strive for 80-85% accuracy and then move to 700 level.
4. And then continue with 700 level ..... more the merrier !!
5. Finally, use GMAT Club Q-Tests if you are targetting Q48++ :)

PS : https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-ps-ques ... 27957.html

According to your target timeline ...... you have time at your side.

All the best !!

Hey!

GMAT Quant does not test your prowess in mathematics. It tests your consistency to do questions of a certain difficulty level. Hence, aim for getting multiple good level questions correctly than 1 really high level question. Your preparation should be divided into three stages:

1. Diagnosis - Give a diagnostic test (Official Guide has one.) You will know which area of GMAT quant are your weakest.
2. Concept - Go through the concept while practicing 8-10 questions of each area. This way you'll realise what you're doing wrong and learn how to make it right.
3. Practice - Once you've familiarised yourself with the concept, start practicing for consistency.

Hi mahisingh,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Since you are currently scoring in the 500s, you lack the quant fundamentals you need for a high score, right? Thus, you need to follow a structured and linear study plan that allows you to individually learn and practice each GMAT quant topic until you’ve obtained mastery. That said, you’ll likely need more than just one month to improve your quant skills. Could you take the GMAT at a later date? In any case, here is some advice you can follow to improve your quant skills.

If you are learning about Number Properties, for example, you should develop as much conceptual knowledge about Number Properties as possible. In other words, your goal will be to completely understand properties of factorials, perfect squares, quadratic patterns, LCM, GCF, units digit patterns, divisibility, and remainders, to name a few concepts. After carefully reviewing the conceptual underpinnings of how to answer Number Properties questions, practice by answering 50 or more questions just from Number Properties. When you do dozens of questions of the same type one after the other, you learn just what it takes to get questions of that type correct consistently. If you aren't getting close to 90 percent of questions of a certain type correct, go back and seek to better understand how that type of question works, and then do more questions of that type until you get to around at least 90 percent accuracy in your training. If you get 100 percent of some sets correct, even better. Number Properties is just one example; follow this process for all quant topics.

When you are working on learning to answer questions of a particular type, start off taking your time, and then seek to speed up as you get more comfortable answering questions of that type. As you do such practice, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get right. If you got a remainder question wrong, ask yourself why. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not properly apply the remainder formula? Was there a concept you did not understand in the question? By carefully analyzing your mistakes, you will be able to efficiently fix your weaknesses and in turn improve your GMAT quant skills.

So, work on accuracy and generally finding correct answers, work on specific weaker areas one by one to make them strong areas, and when you take a practice GMAT or the real thing, take all the time per question available to do your absolute best to get right answers consistently. The GMAT is essentially a game of seeing how many right answers you can get in the time allotted. Approach the test with that conception in mind, and focus intently on the question in front of you with one goal in mind: getting a CORRECT answer.

In order to follow the path described above, you may need some new quant materials, and since you need quant help, I agree that TTP would be an amazing resource for you. Certainly, if you have any questions regarding the course, feel free to reach out to me directly.

Good luck!
