Hello,

I bought my eGMAT quant module last week since I really liked their verbal module. I started with Number Properties and it bridged my gaps in understanding esp the GCD and LCM module, my prep was going good so far until I bumped on the Remainders and Statistics concept. Am really concerned now, since I feel its not up to the mark now and for statistics especially the concepts were just too basic and it has no way equipped me to tackle the GMAT level questions. The reason I chose eGMAT over TTP was that I got addicted to their visual learning!! and I felt eGMAT Verbal was good, so quant could be good as well, today is the 7th day of my purchase. Worst case I would have to return the product and switch to TTP, So I need your inputs in deciding if I can go ahead with eGMAT quant? since am worried about the upcoming modules and its level being the same as Remainders.. Pls help..

A little background about me: I was really good at math, until I met GMAT !! :(
I used to score a 97 in math in board exams.. but somehow in GMAT - I feel a completely different approach is needed and I definitely need help..

P.S: Posting for the first time, kindly excuse if this is not the right place to post the query.

I'm not sure whether you have been studying for some time. If you have, or if you have already taken a GMATPrep or the actual GMAT, responses from people who have used the products you mentioned and got scores within your target range are more likely to be useful to you.

I'm not going to comment on either of the companies you mentioned, but I don't think you need to look for too much complexity when it comes to quant concepts. The GMAT keeps things relatively simple as far as concepts are concerned, because it does not want to test how much you know. Also, because the GMAT is an adaptive exam, there is no "GMAT level" as such.

If you are from India, you should keep in mind that many test takers, especially Asian test takers, find GMAT quant "too basic". Here are some things you can do to get a better idea about the exam that you are planning to take:

1. Practice more GMAT (official) questions and take some official practice tests (if you haven't already) so that you can get an even better idea about what the GMAT tests (and what it doesn't).
2. Post any doubts you may have about the GMAT "syllabus" here (although there is no publicly available list of topics that the GMAT tests, you will get responses from people who are very familiar with the GMAT).
3. Remember that even questions based on relatively basic concepts can be tough.

Hi shurthiavindh,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Before providing specific advice, I have a few important questions.

-- Have you taken an official practice exam to get a baseline score? If so, please provide the score breakdown.

-- What is your GMAT score goal?

-- When is your GMAT?

In the meantime, in addition to chatting with folks in this thread, you should check the GMAT Club reviews for the best quant courses so you can see what has worked well for other test-takers.

Lastly, you may find it helpful to read this article about How To Increase Your GMAT Quant Score

Feel free to reach out with further questions.

Good luck!

I don't want to comment on any of the prep companies but would like to make a general observation.

I agree with what AjiteshArun said!! The GMAT Quant section is very tricky. It's very tricky not because the concepts are tough but you need to read extremely carefully. The more you practice, the more you will start understanding the traps.

I think I can comment on both because I did purchase the quant course after using the verbal course of egmat. Later switched to ttp.
No doubt that their verbal course is brilliant! But the quant just isn't upto the mark! Even their solutions are just too lengthy and they use brute force to solve the problems. That just won't work on the exam due to time pressure. I'm not saying we require shortcuts. Shortcuts don't work!
The good ones atleast introduce you to all the methods out there and you can use a method comfortable to you.
Their quant does not cover all the concepts/types either.
This is not to say egmat quant is bad. It is just not for someone who is a little weak at quant.
The non-natives are already good at quant. They just need a good verbal course. So egmat is sufficient for them.
But for me, I'm weak at both. Their verbal was absolutely brilliant! But I couldn't really grasp much with their quant course.
Ttp did it for me! You should give it a try. A dollar for 5 full days of trial!

Good luck!

Hi shruthiarvindh,

To start, it's worth noting that the Quant section of the GMAT is NOT a 'math test' - it's a 'critical thinking test' that requires lots of little calculations as you work through it. To score at a much higher level in this section, you need to become more of a 'strategist' and less of a 'mathematician.' Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied in total?
2) What study materials have you used so far besides the course you mentioned?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
