Hi everyone, I had been studying for over a month now. As of now, I have covered basics of Verbal and I'm practicing questions now from various sources. I've been doing decent in terms of accuracy and application of concepts in Verbal.

I started Quant about two weeks back and realised the study plan that I'm following currently isn't helping me in improving much. I started with some concepts and then applied them. But since I'm referring to various sources, including NCERTs, I feel I'm a bit stuck/lost. It's just not strategic. I'm planning to appear for the exam in November, which means I have about 3 months.

Could you please recommend me materials/books/online course that would help me the most in terms of building the foundation, as the last time I did mathematics was about 8 years ago. At present, I am just as new.

Also, I understand what I read, it's just that I do silly mistakes, which means that the foundation isn't as strong. On an average, I study about 34 hours a week. I am also planning to take a 15 day leave from work for my prep.

So, time is not a constraint in my case. One thing I'm certainly looking at is bolstering my foundation so that a good score in Quant stands me in good stead.

Will be thankful if anyone of you, who has/had similar issues can share the study plan or a few tips on how to work more strategically from the very start instead of panicking 4 weeks before the exam.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

Since your basics are quite misty, I would recommend purchasing an online course to help you understand the concepts and at the same time give you an organized study plan. Most of the courses have a free trial, so go through them before purchasing the full course. Give Target Test Prep a shot. Research about them and make use of their free trial. If you don't like them then you could try Magoosh.

Best wishes!

Hi Rocknrolla21,

Welcome to GMATCLUB! Most of the GMATPREP courses are well designed and take you through the basics before taking you to the advance topics.

For Quant You can try out the TTP course as it is phenomenal and covers the entire syllabus really well. Plus it has great reviews on GMATCLUB. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... h-focused/

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hello. Have you taken a diagnostic mock? What was your quant score? I recommend Target Test Prep. You can use the 5-day free trial to decide. You can also use gmatclub’s quant book (free) to learn the concepts and use this link (https://gmatclub.com/forum/search.php?view=search_tags) to search for questions. Solve sub 600 level (easy), followed by 600-700 level (medium), and then 700 level (hard) questions after each chapter.

Feel free to reach out if you have further queries.

Best wishes!

Thank you, cfc198, rohan2345 and bebs. I'm starting TTP's trial tomorrow.

I did give a practice test, scored a dismal number in mathematics and decent in Verbal.

I'm ever so grateful for all your suggestions. Once I'm done with strengthening my basics, I will be subscribing to the practice tests.

Definitely will come back for queries. Also, if you could answer this one. How much time would you usually recommend an individual to put in considering a 3 month study plan?

I know it's highly subjective, more so depends on where are you starting from and what's your target score.

Thank you!
