Hi saviofernanz,

Yes, assuming that you know the overall content well enough - and you understand how to use Tactics, patterns and the little 'secrets' to the GMAT to your advantage - then you can answer all of the Quant questions in the time allotted. Thankfully, that is NOT a requirement to get into your first-choice School, so you have to be careful about confusing what you "want" to happen with what you "need" to happen.

Before I can offer you any additional advice for your studies, 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? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
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

Hi,

Yes, it is possible to do all the GMAT questions on the GMAT test, provided you have tested techniques which can help you get the answer in shortest possible time. You should have practiced these techniques on plethora of questions so that they come naturally to you when you take the test.

However, this test does not require you to get all the questions right for getting 51. The GMAT is all about knowing which questions to do and which ones to leave. If you are good that then you can beat this test at its own game. To know more, you can attend online webinars by reputed GMAT companies.

You can attend webinars by Manya - The Princeton Review.

Please give kudos if you liked the solution. :)

Hi saviofernanz.

If I understand correctly, you are asking whether, in preparing for the GMAT, one can find and solve questions that are rather similar to any question that one would see in the quant section on the actual test.

If that is indeed what you are asking, for the most part, the answer is yes. The formats of the questions that appear on the GMAT are fairly predictable. So, if you do enough practice questions of enough types, in your training you will see questions that will be rather similar to almost every question that you would see in the quant section of the actual GMAT.

At the same time, since there are infinite ways to vary the way in which concepts are used in questions, the questions that one sees on the GMAT will generally not be exactly like ones that one would see when preparing. They may be quite similar to questions one has seen and use the same concepts yet employ twists somehow different from any one has seen.

Also, sometimes quant question writers come up with questions such that, while answering the questions requires using only the concepts that people commonly use in answering GMAT questions, the questions are somehow quite unique and may not look like anything one has seen in practice. So, in the quant section of the GMAT, one might see a question or two that are somehow rather different from any practice questions one has answered.
