Hello! Happy Tuesday! 🙂
Today we are talking about the big picture stuff that you’ll need to know in order to improve your GMAT Quant game. Things like:
- Know the format of the GMAT Quantitative section before test day. For example, you should know:
- The number of questions in the section (37)
- How long the section lasts (75 minutes)
- Whether it’s computer adapted like the Verbal section (It is.)
- The types of questions you’ll see on the section (problem solving, data sufficiency)
- Strategies for solving each question type
2. NO CALCULATORS
- You can’t use a calculator on this section of the test. Get good at mental math!
- Know the concepts tested in the section (algebra, arithmetic, geometry, word problems, etc.)
4. High Frequency Concepts
- Know which concepts are tested most frequently, so you can focus your time efficiently. Some common concepts include percentages, linear equations, and rates & proportions.
5. Math prep is not for spectators
- You have to do math to learn math! Be sure to go practice your math and critical thinking skills (after you watch this video, of course.) 🙂
- It’s important to have a strong math foundation and to know your GMAT math strategies, so that you can focus your time on the critical aspects of the questions and not on the calculations.
