Hey SpongeBob,

With only one month to study, I would focus on the OG, the verbal and quant reviews. Do all the problems and review your mistakes until you know the material and don't repeat your mistakes.

For one, if you make a mistake twice, you will never make the same mistake a third time. Also, since the test is adaptive, you wil...

I think my only weakness now is my law school grades which were below average. They were low because I ...

1) the amount of the bill was between $15 and $50 this statement is insufficient because in this range, you can have a tip that is below 15% and a tip that is above 15%. For example, if the bill was $10, then a $2 tip is a 20% tip. If the bill was $19, then the tip is 10.5% . 2) the tip calcuated by...

JMHO...

but I don't think MBA schools care. I think MBA schools want to be able to publish a high average GMAT score for accepted students. So if you want to go to a particular school, the higher the score the better, no matter how many times you it took you to get that score.

Hi Yuke, Yes, I had to scroll down to see each of the RC passages. All the best! Hitesh, how many lines could you see, or how much of the passage could you see? I'm asking this is because I get perfect scores if I can see the whole passage because I am good at skimming, but if I can only see 2-3 li...
