Hello GMAT/Quant experts!

I have taken the GMAT twice by now - once on July 20th 2017 (690 Q48 V38) and then immediately on 12th August 2017 (710 Q47 V41).

I was sorely disappointed with my quant score both times. I applied to 6 schools but didn't get through to any one. I am planning to apply in R1 this year, for which I'm planning to take the GMAT in June-end or July beginning. This gives me 2.5-3 months of time to study. I work 12 hours a day, including Saturdays and need a solid plan to get to a score of 750+ this time. I need help with the following things:

1) Do I need to re-do the whole quant, right from concepts? If not, where should I start?

My major problem in quant was time management (mostly because I spent too much time on DS) and I had trouble with a couple of topics (numbers, venn diagrams, equations and to an extent percentages). I also had a bit of a stamina problem. My mess-up on the first test was because I was totally fried by the time I reached the verbal (last) section.

2) Should I take up an online course (Math Revolution/Magoosh/Manhattan etc.) If so, which one would you recommend?

3) What should my study plan be, for quant and verbal?

4) What resources should I use?

Any and all tips are welcome!

Thank you!

Hi,

I'm new here so definitely not an expert. But from looking at your scores from 2017, they're actually pretty solid. I've taken the GMAT myself and would have loved to score in that range. I recommend reaching out to an admissions counselor to understand your application weaknesses. Stratus Admission Counseling is one good resource but there are many similar ones as well.

Good luck and you can do it!
