PhD SOP --Formidable terminologies? ...and 1 more Question

Hi, 1) How important is it to use business terminologies in an SOP (for PhD admission)? --- I have read some formidable ( in terms of words used) Economics PhD SOPs available on the net.

Not happy with the OA

Hi, I understand that we arrived at the official answer mainly by the process of elimination, but why does the official answer too sound grammatically incorrect to me? Isn't a "were" or an "are" supposed to precede the word "derive" in this case? When you read the OA, doesn't it seem that the alphab...

GMATPrep xy + z = x(y+z)

Hi, Firstly, I have done a search and I couldn't find this question. (I searched for both "xy+z" and "x(y+z)" ) Secondly, I apologise if it is a silly question BUT ... I ended up getting each of the options other than d as a “must be true”, so obviously I have missed out something basic in my Quant ...

OG11 DS141 --Take deep breaths?

Hi, How do I stop my brain from going into a deep freeze the moment I see really really wordy (for me) question ? A prime example is the DS 141 question in OG 11.

Hi there, I think the Qs that come in the range 700-800 test one's reasoning abilities under high pressure conditions. I don't know if books and tutors can help in getting these questions right.
