According to Kaplan, the QR section is broken down into:
14% Calculus
19% Pre-Calculus
19% Probability and Statistics
24% Algebra
24% Basic Math

I searched this forum for advice on studying for this section, and so far people have said since it's cut for time you should use Kaplan's problem-solving strategies. However, I'm more interested in knowing: how accurate is Kaplan's percent-breakdown? And what resources are best for someone who is not exceptional at calculus, and has never taken probability & statistics? (I've read here on SDN that Kaplan doesn't go into as much depth content-wise as what's demanded on the test.)

My test is quickly approaching and I'd really appreciate some help!

1) Kaplan’s percent breakdown is spot on

2) khan academy online is a free resource to grasp introductory principles in the topics of your choosing. Once that’s down, use Kaplan topics to type into YouTube videos and practice the exact concepts with different #’s.

Lastly, memorize your trig functions inside and out. It’ll save you a bit of time for other more in depth questionnaires.

Thanks a bunch! Sounds like a good plan, especially considering I only have Kaplan on hand.
