I am one month away from my 3rd attempt at the GMAT. This is due to an extreme drop in my quant score on the 2nd attempt. My verbal score, as well an AWA has stayed consistent, and is within my target range. As such, I will concentrate almost solely on quant for the next month. In preparation for my 2nd attemt, I solved nearly 550 quant questions from several Official Guide books. Although I did well on my practice, when it came to test time, I did not perform as well. My first thought was to go back through those books, solving 10-15 questions a night. This would allow me to keep familiar with the strategies I already know, as well as the daily time to concentrate on the ones I dont. Also, i will plan on taking a couple of practice tests within this time. Does anyone have any other suggestions, strategies, material that may be helpful? Thank you in advance.

I suggest that you spend time training for this 3.5+ hour test. It's one thing to work through tons of practice questions (in short, 30-minute increments), and it's another thing to take a full CAT.

Start working on your timing, guessing strategies and your endurance. There are plenty of free CATs out there.

Cheers,
Brent
