Hi Hjort,

I was wondering if you could share some of your keen insight as to the best way to boost a pathetically low quantitative score? Over the past six months, I have been practicing with

Kaplan, OG11, GMAT800, Delta Course, and now

Veritas ProjectGMAT in a desperate attempt to raise my pathertic Q34 to a Q48+. Many fellow club members claim that the Math Challenges in the forum closely reflect the upper end of the difficulty on the official test, however I can`t seem to make heads or tails of most of those problems. Honestly, IMHO there is a huge "gap" between what GMAT test prep books categorize as "difficult" problems and what really are

difficult problems.

Therefore, in order to get a solid grounding in the fundamentals of GMAT tested mathematics, I have considered taking a holistic approach to my study strategies by practicing with Schaum`s Outlines.

The problem is, Schaum`s publishes outlines on everything from basic arithmetic to Lagrangian Dynamics . In your opinion, which of the following, if any, would you recommend I study solely as a means to "bridge the gap?"

A-Z Mathematics

Easy Outline College Mathematics

Outline of Geometry

Outline of Probability, 2nd Edition

Easy Outline Statistics

Outline of Set Theory and Related Topics

Outline of Beginning Statistics

Outline of Intermediate Algebra

Thanks for your support Hjort!
