GMAT Maths

Hello,

I saw your profile in PrepAdviser and I have a question.
I want to take the GMAT but i'm quite scared from the maths. So my concern is how long does it take for someone who is really bad in maths to get prepared for the GMAT and is it possible to score high if you are weak in this section?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hello Paloma,

That's a great question. The amount of time it takes to prepare for the GMAT varies from student to student. Everything depends on your pace of learning and studying regime. If you dedicate enough time to your studies you should be able to prepare within 2-4 months. In order to score high on the quantitative section you need to be persistent about doing practice questions. You also need to make sure that you understand the format of the questions and become familiar with the type of questions the GMAT might ask. There are certain quantitative skills that will absolutely be necessary for the exam and you need to hone these skills before taking the exam. Since this is a timed exam there are also certain tricks and strategies that would help you efficiently answer these questions as fast as possible. If you are interested in finding a test prep program to get you started on your GMAT studies, you can contact us anytime. If you have any additional questions, I'd be happy to help.
