690 Q50 V31
I took the GMAT twice in September and October after taking his class July. I got the math score of 50 for the two tests. Before I took the first text, I was a bit nervous about the score I would get, but I realized soon that I didn’t need to worry that much with the help of Max Lee at Math Revolution.
The biggest benefit to take Math Revolution course is that it can save the time to prepare for the math section of the GMAT. Its approaches consist of two, Variable approach for Data Sufficiency (D/S) section and IVY approach for Problem Solving (P/S) section.
In particular, I could save a lot of time with the help of Variable approach. It is basically based on the principle that in order to solve an equation, the number of variables should be equal to the number of equations. With the combination of Common Mistake Types and Tip, the approach raises your probability for the correct answers dramatically. When I was under pressure for the time constraint, I could rely on the approach and get the right answer. As Max noted, the approach for the D/S problem should be different from the one for P/S problem.
Here are basic differences between the D/S and the P/S.
D/S: Logical Problems, The purpose is to identify whether there can be an answer or not.
P/S: Calculating Problems, The purpose is to get the right answer.
With regard to the IVY approach, Max teaches the problem solving method in an easy and logical way. Instead of depending on guess work, he developed unique methods such as Axiom Approach and 2 by 2. For example, he demonstrates that you can make statements into mathematical expressions. You can convert greater than or more than into + and is into =. I could avoid making mistakes with these kinds of mathematical methods.
In conclusion, I really learned a lot from him. When it comes to math, Max makes an emphasis on the principle of “SDH.” S stands for slow, D for detail and H for hands. When you solve math problems, you should solve the problem slowly by thinking a lot, write solutions in detail and use your hands instead of brain. If you prepare for the GMAT math with Max according to his advice and methods, I think you can easily get at a score of 50 or 51.
