I would like to know how important are those sections related to your success on the gmat. I read one guy on here who scored a 750 and he basically skimmed over it and preached not to focus on the brutal questions.

If I knew everything before the advance sections on each book cold, is their anything really stopping me from scoring high in the quant section?

Hi,

There is some merit to what the other poster was saying. We definitely feel that a strong grasp on fundamental concepts is more important than focusing on just learning how to solve difficult questions. In fact, our instructors have sometimes found that the best way to get high scorers to do better in quant is to take them through drills in the Foundations of GMAT Math book. The less you have to think about the content and the more familiar you are with it, the better you will be able to apply these concepts easily to more tricky problems.

That being said, the advice contained in our advanced sections is definitely worth reading. There are some good strategies in there that will really help you hone your skills once you have that foundational knowledge that is key to answering questions. The strategies covered in the advanced sections are particularly important for those looking to score high, but can also be used by any level.

Let me know if you have any further questions!

Best Wishes,
Caitlin Clay

i say get your money's worth and go over it. it is like maybe 20 pages total. If you dont want to do the hard questions you should at least spend some time going over the material.since the mgmat references the OGs you probably have done the ques already.
