Overlapping sets

    Hey guys, I'm having trouble solving 700 plus overlapping sets problems. Is it a possibility on this website to pay someone by hour or something and get a few sessions to get thorough with the concept?

    Thanks.

    At the bottom of each expert's post, there is contact information for the tutor or for the company the tutor represents.

    Hi rohan.tarun,

    Unless you've already mastered all of the other categories in BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections, you shouldn't be concerned about "700 level" Overlapping Sets questions. To start, they're rare on the GMAT - you probably won't see any. Second, even if you do see one, chances are really good that you could afford to get it wrong and still score an 800. As such, that specific sub-category isn't worth the extra effort (much less the expense of a tutor).

    1) How long have you studied?
    2) What materials have you used?
    3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
    4) What is your goal score?

    GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
    Rich

    I agree with the posters above, though: overlapping sets aren't a huge issue on the GMAT. All you need to know you can find in this article, as far as I know. (To my knowledge, the GMAT hasn't gone beyond three overlapping groups.)
