Well, if your having trouble with the quant section, id suggest that you go through the manhattan guide books. They will refresh your quant skills.

And also, go for a mock. It will help you establish a baseline score, and you will be able to gauge how much and where exactly you need to improve to get to your target score.

I'd definitely agree - go ahead and sit down and take a full mock exam. Are you following a dedicated course of study, or are you just doing questions from the OG/GMATClub? In order to get the most out of your study time, it pays to be systematic. Once you take your mock exam (or a shorter diagnostic if you don't feel you have the time to do a full test), take a look: where were your strengths and weaknesses? What were the questions you should have gotten right? The questions you could have gotten right? (And the questions you could someday get right.) Plan your studying to really address the first two first, leaning really heavily on your error log to track not just what you got right and wrong, but why you got them right and wrong.

All that said, what are you doing right now to structure your prep? How long are you spending each day? What are you doing during that time? (Is it mostly just doing questions, or have you set a schedule for yourself with goals?)

LauraOrion Thanks for highlighting everything important in your message. That was really thoughtful.
I have been using Manhattan and Official Guide everyday for my practice. I need to share this that I am a working professional so you can understand I can hardly devote any time during weekdays but still I try to as much as I can. On weekends, I try to atleast devote 5-6 hours on my preparation. I am aiming my GMAT exam in mid October but at time I get really confused with quants section. I have not attempted any mock as of now but yes have attempted several small tests section and subject wise. I have completed SC and CR but still struggling a bit in RC and quants (word problems and Geometry mainly) though I have been using Manhattan only for my learning. Would really appreciate if you could help me as to what should I do now to get more confidence as I am not confident at all on my preparation.

Thanks
