Going from a GRE Math of 700 to 800

  1. Aug 2, 2010 #1
    I scored a 700 mainly due to lack of speed and being stumped by 1-3 relatively difficult questions on number theory - the rest is due to genuine lack of facility in math. Most preparation materials don't include the more difficult questions.

    I have 10 days, on vacation, to prepare. This is my planned regimen. Please tell me how I can make it more efficient and effective.

    I one comment to make on that. Why practice for the GMAT? Practicing for the GRE should be enough. Good luck!

    Because GMAT math problems are tougher compared to the GRE. ALmost all GRE study guides significantly underestimate the difficulty of today's problems.
