My qaunt score did not improve at all .Do you have any suggestions as to how to improve. Any program you would recommend for online tutoring since i live in Sri lanka and have no access to one to one tutoring.

*****I am assuming you were able to complete each section without having any blanks at the end. If you ran out of time, master your test time FIRST. There is a severe penalty for not answering all the questions.

I can appreciate that you want to improve quant. Your verbal is still low however so don’t put it aside when you start cranking again on quant.

As for the Q-42, my concern as an instructor is that your fundamentals – basic number theory, mechanics, etc. are likely the culprit. Even if you memorize every question and permutation of question, you won’t have the fluidity/flexibility to get through the quant section once your level improves. Two options:

A. The fastest way to improve is to find a great, patient, local basic math tutor. Not a GMAT tutor, but a regular math tutor. Find one who specializes in teaching number theory to 10,11,12 year olds. You do not need a fancy professor. Find someone patient. Do the drill sheets. Let your instructor see the mistakes you make so they can be corrected in the moment.

B. Schaums Elementary Algebra. I love that book. Very few typos. Easy to follow. Lots and lots of drills to help you reinforce concepts.
