GRE quant section judges your arithmetic, data analysis, and algebra and geometry concepts. GRE quant questions are based on your 10th class knowledge. You can score very well in this section by keeping a few basic tips in your mind-
Visualization- it is a technique when the students can visualize a question and put it onto a scratch paper. This is an easy technique that could be used to solve the co-ordinate geometry questions. In this technique, students visualize the question and make a rough sketch on the paper that is very useful in solving the question.
Keep your composure while attempting GRE quant questions- students should remain calm and composed attempting the way quant questions. They lose their patience in two conditions. Difficult questions make them panicky and leave the track thus resulting in a complete failure. In the second condition, they may not be familiar with the pattern of the questions and lose their composer while attempting them.
Keep an eye on the clock- students should keep a complete track of time while preparing for the exams. Sometimes they spend too much time on a particular topic and fail to reach the topics that also need revision and practice. They should spend equal time on each topic. They should allot time according to the topics and cover every topic for the exam.
Adopt the Elimination method while attempting the GRE quant questions- the student should keep a keen eye on the choices of the questions. The answers have multiple choices and so the student should be careful enough to judge the right answer by eliminating the two incorrect answers
Don’t spend too much time on one question- each question in the GRE quant section carries equal weight age. The students tend to spend more time on difficult questions and have no time for easy questions. This is a wrong practice as you should know that all the questions carry equal marks and so you should attempt the questions that are easy and get a good score.
Prepare with a correct study material- the student should not attempt GRE quant questions from every book that he comes across. We should stick to a particular book attempt all the questions from that book and then select another appropriate book for preparation. Solving questions from every book increases your list of problems.
