Reclaiming your quant skills

I had a comment that is lost somewhere in the archives about what to do about proving that you have good quant skills. The simple answer is that's what the GMAT is for. However, maybe standardized tests aren't your thing. The comment asked about MBA Math. That can be a useful review (or basic first instruction on certain topics) but I think a more genuine way of showing reclaimed quant skills is through taking a statistics or accounting class through a local college. Doing well in a statistics class, for example, will show that you can do well in something that has more applicability to business school and the real world than data sufficiency questions.
The GMAT is important, but if that's a weakness, go back to the real world and see if that will add positively to your application.
Good luck!
