Hi been scoring Q50 for my quant in the gmatprep. Just wondering how much effort I need to up it to a Q51?

How many variety of questions in the GMAT are there? Will there be a one day where we are able to master all different variety of difficult questions in the Quant GMAT?

Depends on how many mistakes you are making currently. For Q51 the umber of mistakes should be 1-2 at the most. You must be strong in the topics - probability, statistics, geometry, co-ordinate geometry. Thats why Q51 is not as common as Q50-Q49.

My 2 cents !

I have been scoring consistently in Quantitative at 50 (in over 5 tests) and scored a 51 in the last. Off late, I have realized that I am not using the time judiciously to score a 51. I complete the Quantitative section in under 60 minutes and take an extended break (15 minutes from Quantitative + 8 min as in the real GMAT). However, I tried to slow down and complete the Quantitative section in 70 minutes, resulting in a 51 !

Hope it helps !
