GMAT Tuesdays: How to Prepare for GMAT Quantitative

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:

1. Structure

  • 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


  • You can’t use a calculator on this section of the test. Get good at mental math!

3. Content

  • Know the concepts tested in the section (algebra, arithmetic, geometry, word problems, etc.)

4. High Frequency Concepts

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.) 🙂

6. Strategies

  • 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.
