hello!
As many of the gmat aspirants i started my prep with mgamt prep guides. but it seems that mgmat couldn't provide much help. i personally find that the strategies they're providing are time taking and they do not explain it much with the examples; specifically the examples are easier than the problem sets. i dont want to offend anyone, its just my own opinion as i consider my math base to be quite weak!
i want to subscribe to the target test prep bcz of its good reviews and feedback. now i want to know do i need any prior basic knowledge of quant ( i.e. inequality, co-ordinate geometry, word problems etc.) before subscribing to TTP course? can anybody give me any insights ?
thanks!

No. you don't need to do anything prior. TTP starts all the way from basic to advanced. so don't worry just subscribe. You might as well get a trial first and see for yourself

Hi Ranji12,

I’m glad to see you are considering using TTP! As Abhi077 mentioned you don’t need any base level quant knowledge since the course will provide what you need from the foundations of GMAT quant through all advanced quant concepts.

If you’d like any further information regarding the Target Test Prep course, feel free to reach out to me directly.

Let’s do this!!

Hi Ranji12,

To start, for free math practice and help, I recommend that you set up an account at Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org). The site is completely free and makes the learning a bit more fun and 'game-like' (as opposed to the dry academic approach taken by most books). While the site is vast, you should limit your studies to basic Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry. After spending a little time re-building those skills, you can restart your GMAT studies.

About 6 months ago, you posted that you were beginning your GMAT studies, but it's not clear what work you have done since then. Before I can offer you any additional advice, 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?
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) Is your goal score still 720+?
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,

yes i posted about starting my gmat prep about 6 months ago... but i couldn't due to some personal reasons. i started my prep seriously from this January. now answers to your questions are following-
1) i have been studying for 2months now for 3-4 hours daily as i do not have any jobs or internships.(i am really trying hard to extend my study hours)
2)i have used mgmat prep guides (not all of them are completed) and veritas prep guides for brushing up my basics. but it seems that they aren't enough for me.. the examples are too easy and when it comes to the drill sets i can not apply the strategies may be its my problem or inability but i think these prep guides are not enough for me!
3)so far i've taken one CAT which is from veritas prep guide's free trial and scored 390! (26 for quant and 18 for verbal)
4)i do not aspire for 720+ but definitely 680-700.
5) i am planning to take the gmat between july- august.
6) i will try for 2019 intakes (class of 2020) for MiM. ( i am a recent graduate and do not have any prior work experience)
7) i am planning to apply for mostly German b schools such as Frankfurt School of Finance and Management,Leipzig Graduate School of Management,University of Cologne Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, Mannheim Business School etc.
well thank you for your reply and suggestion about khan academy.. i'll surely try that.

Hi Ranji12,

Since you are not planning to take the GMAT until July or August, you still have plenty of time to study and improve - which is good. Since you've been studying for 2 months now - but you have only taken one CAT/mock - it would make sense for you to take another one soon (perhaps this weekend), so that we can get a sense of whether your current method of studying is helping you to improve or not. Make sure to take that CAT in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.). Once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss the results and how best to proceed.
