Quant - MGMAT

Gave one MGMAT test and scored 51 on quant. But, i made a number of careless mistakes MGMAT quant is really tough as compared to Kaplan or Gprep. The quant in MGMAT has lots of questions on combinatorics, problems require a lot of calculations and the level of problems is way above other practice tests.

The best part about MGMAT tests is that you get to see detailed analysis about your performance. You get to know your mistakes topic-wise and also on a scale of 600-800 score. One can take MGMAT test in the begining to get a better understanding about one's weak and strong areas. I would advise not to take more than 1 test before you cover all the basics {because without a good grasp of fundamentals it would be difficult to crack MGMAT quant and that could shatter your confidence}.

Give one MGMAT and analyze your performance with the help of Manhattan's performance tracking sheet.

I found that i am excellent when it comes to PS but i suck in DS. I need to go through Number properties, Set theory, Combinatorics, statistics and questions related to series. I am good on word transaltions, Geometry, Mensuration etc.

I have heard good reviews about GMAT math bible and i might order one {can anybody share his/her review?}.

Hey there! By 'GMAT Math Bible' if you mean the Official Guide for Quant review...then here goes my experience of using it.....Most of the problems are similar to what you might find on the GMAT, but the simpler and easier problems are not covered proportionately, meaning there are more easier probs than tough ones.

I'm still looking for a good sources of quant problems...I need more and more questions to satiate my quant practice need...any suggestions?

Good luck with the DS portion of the GMAT - I'm glad I don't have to go through it again :)

I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I enjoy your blog, and wish you the best of luck with your MBA experience. I was in your shoes a few years ago, and can tell you that the Stanford GSB was two of the best years of my life (the application process, not so much, but that’s another story…)

Anyway, I know how stressful the application process can be, and since a lot of your readers are in the process of applying to business school, I thought I might be able to help you provide a valuable resource to your loyal readers.

I’d like to send you a copy of my complete applications for 5 top MBA programs (for free, seriously). Then, if you think your readers might like it as well, I’ll provide a link you can post on your blog so your readers can grab their copy as well.

If you're interested, drop me an email at, and I'll have a preview copy of my application materials emailed to you ASAP, so you can check it out and make sure it's something you'd feel comfortable giving away to your readers.

A 51 on MGMAT is extremely impressive.

I have tried extremely hard to attain such a score, but I have only gotten up to 49 and I got a 99% on ACT math back in high school.

Any suggestions...

Thus far, I have done the GMAT prep tests and these GMAT questions.

I would suggest that you do Jeff Sackman's GMAT Math bible. It is good for brushing up the basics and has some good tricky problems to give you an idea of what you can expect from the test makers. Also, try and solve as many DS and PS questions from beat the gmat or as you can.

Only way to score high in quant is to practice problems. Let me know if i can help you in any other way.
