GMAT quant is one of the critical section to score, should, you be aiming at 700+ at GMAT exam. So what it takes to score well at GMAT quant? Most of the candidates who prepare for the GMAT start comparing the quantitative section with the mathematics they would have studied in their school or college.
However, on the contrary, it is quite a lot different from the conventional mathematics they would have studied. A quantitative section at GMAT exam has a lot of questions which either can be solved through tricky or conventional methods but applying conventional one will never be able to solve the question within the required constraint of time.
Hence it all defeats the purpose of solving a question. Moreover most of the questions especially the data sufficiency ones always have some trap which unless a candidate had enough understanding of most of the deeper concepts which are frequently tested at GMAT exam, one will often fall into the trap which the exam setters often intend to.
Here comes the role of good GMAT trainer or GMAT institute having enough experience through which they fairly understand the trend of questions which are tested at the exams. Also, Good GMAT Trainer or Tutor will explain various techniques to solve the question in the given constraint of time and explain as to how to avoid various traps which are there through understanding the question up to a deeper level.
For scoring perfect at GMAT quant one need not be master of mathematics but had enough exposure to the various techniques, type of questions and had enough practice on questions which are commensurate with the questions keep appearing at GMAT exam.
Also, some of the topics which weigh heavy on GMAT quant section are Number System, inequalities, overlapping sets and word problems. So one should always allocate more time to these topics while preparing for the GMAT exam.
