Hey guys my undergraduate degrees are in math and computer science but when I take GRE quant I only get a 161 on quant. I find myself making careless errors and I want to improve to a perfect score on this section. I got 6 months to study for this exams. Any good sources to study from?

Hi,


Careless mistakes are often the result of lack of practice in general.
If you are making mistakes across different topics, i.e similar levels of error in coordinate geometry and algebra, then it is possible to improve the scores with some regular practice.
I have a background similar to yours and during my first attempt I was over confident that I could easily score on the math sections. Since engineers and comp sci guys are subjected to much more complex mathmatics during their study period.

Here is a complete resource and study plan>

we also have tonnes of questions here on the forum for you to practice:

hope this helps, best of luck

You can easily add upto 10 points on your verbal if you learn more vocabulary. It is easy to get the sentence equivalence and text completion questions correct. Maybe have a look into it.

If your problem really is just careless mistakes, then it's very simple. I had a similar background at college (math & engineering major) and all I cared about was my silly errors. Here's how I did it:

1. Find a set of tricky math problems. I had a curated set of ~160 questions that represented all the traps one can see on GRE.
2. Do them. And when you do, be as careless as you can. At this point, you want to EXPOSE all the careless mistakes you can possibly make. A perfect GRE math score does not allow ANY careless mistakes.
3. Take a look back and figure out why you made those mistakes, figure out how to avoid them in the future, make a list of actions you can take and practice them with some new questions. You want to form good habits at this point.
4. Take a look at the list you created at Step 3 the morning before the test. You got this.

This is literally what I did for my GRE math. My whole prep process for that was just one day. I made every single possible mistake I could have (I got 30% of my practice questions wrong, partially intentionally), and never made them ever again. The real test felt like a breeze afterwards.
