Struggling with Quant Section [#permalink]

New post 30 Mar 2011, 15:04
My verbal is pretty strong, so I'm not too concerned about it. In fact, I am progressively getting stronger with each set of practice questions. However, when it comes to the quant section I'm still struggling pretty badly. For Data Sufficiency I get about 60% of questions correct, but problem solving is even worse.

I have been through the Manhattan GMAT set twice, along with the Kaplan math book. I have pinpointed most of my problem areas, specifically probability, number properties (usually prime number/multiple questions), and rate problems. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how next to proceed. I have about another 2 months before I write the test and would like to know how, besides studying harder of course, to help my understanding of quant. Any specific books, techniques, or strategies that have helped you?

You can try the Total GMAT Math - a pretty different approach. May work for you?

Revise your school math books. That will help a lot in case of Problem Solving.
MGMAT set is good to raise your score from 30Q to 40Q, not beyond that or in case you are below that.
I do suggest to take Math class in case your Quant score is less than 25.

In case of Probability: Just try to draw pictures of the situations & remember simplest formulas. Normally Probability questions based on that.
