Mastering the GMAT Quant section goes beyond mere practice. Many test-takers work through thousands of questions without achieving high scores. Now, I want you to ponder about these two questions:

- Why do mistakes happen even when you understand the concepts?
- Why does mastering the GMAT Quant seem to require solving thousands of questions?

**Here are the answers:**

- You make a mistake not because you don’t know the concept, but because you do not know how to apply that concept.
- Likewise, you need to solve so many questions to reach that level of ability despite knowing the concepts since you have not learned the method to apply those concepts to solve GMAT questions. And you know by experience that this approach is a hit or a miss.

**So how do you solve this problem of “application”?**

This is where “Process Skills” come into the picture. To learn how to apply these concepts, you need to learn these process skills. After thousands of hours researching the official content, we have formulated six process skills that you need to master to solve difficult quant questions with ease and accuracy.

- Infer
- Translate
- Simplify
- Visualize
- Consider all cases
- Apply constraints

**These six skills are explained in this Introduction video**:

Below are the individual videos explaining these process skills and how these skills are used on an actual GMAT Quant questions:
