Kaplan Gmat premier 2013 ERROR chapter 11

by Aysun » Sat Sep 22, 2012 2:38 pm

I recently bought Kaplan's Gmat premier 2013 book and I've discoverd some major deficiencies. In Chapter 11, there are no multiple choice answers to choose from. You can see this at page 556. I cannot deduct the right answer from the explanation part as it only says "anwers A" or "anwers B is correct". Is there someone among you who can help me with this? This is a really important chapter for me, so it's really necessary for me to have those answers.

My second problem is: I cannot login to /booksonline. The question is "what's the last word of the 15th chapter". When I type this, it seems to be wrong. I really don't understand what I've done wrong as I've tried different words (before the explanation part, including the explanation part etc.)
I can't even login with a serial number because I cannot find anyone in the inner back of the book.

This is my first week studying for the GMAT.. Please help :)

Had the same issue with registering. Turned out to be a browser issue. Worked in IE not in Chrome. Hope that helps!

Hi Aysun,

Hope you're doing well. I know we spoke on Facebook about the second question and that you are up and running there. Thus, I will just focus on the first question to keep you moving forward with studying.

The intent in not including the answer choices on every question in that chapter is to reinforce the fact that data sufficiency answers choices are always the same. Thus, you should memorize what the choices mean and avoid reading them on test day. A detailed description of the structure of the question type can be found on page 551-553. Page 553 gives a great acronym (12TEN) for memorizing what the answer choices mean. Just like on test day, it is a good idea to write this down on your note board for each question so that you can cross off answers as you eliminate them.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I would love to answer them.

Best, Jonathan
