Ask Kate: 640 GMAT score with V36 / Q42. How can they best improve?
Hi , I did Gmat twice with 610 V31/61%, Q42/51% 2nd try 640 V36/81%,Q42/51% I used the Manhattan books and Magoosh.
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.
