I took the GMAT twice. I did 440 and 430. I studied hard for the second time, but my Quantitative section was worse than the Verbal section. I ran out of time basically on the Quantitative section. I am doing on free trial tutoring right now. Sincerelly, I do not know what to do? i just need about 600 to get into the school of my choice. Do you recommend any specific material?

Hi velhogaga,

Based on your first two GMAT scores, it's clear that you need to go back to the basics. I'm curious to know more about why you're struggling with Quant, but I think it's important for you to consider reviewing basic concepts for both Quant and Verbal. I'm also curious about the following:

-How much time did you devote to studying before each of your attempts at the GMAT?
-How often were you able to dive into GMAT Tutor?
-Have you taken any practice exams? If so, what were your practice exam scores?

If you've taken a couple practice exams, go back and analyze where you ran into trouble. You'll notice patterns in your test taking after you've gone through a couple FULL-length practice exams, which will help you narrow your study plan and focus on the areas you're struggling with most.

However, I'd also stress that you should take a good amount of time before you attempt the GMAT again to review some fundamentals. [Khan Academy offers a number of online classes that will help you improve in areas that you're not quite grasping. Check them out here: https://www.khanacademy.org/. Reviewing basics will also allow you to move on to focusing more on test taking strategies.

Best,
Rich
