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

2. NO CALCULATORS

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

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.) ðŸ™‚

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.
