Hi taryn123, For the quant portion, I stuck with studying Manhattan gmat and I made sure that I understood each problem in the OG. I did not look into any books. I felt understanding each problem is more important that doing many problems. That helped me tremendously. For some reason I keep scoring ...

This gives us no useful information (2) Last week the factory produced a total of...

"Critique" MUST modify the book since it is directly after the comma. You must modify the noun rather than the critiquing style. Also Parallelism must be considered.

Therefore, A is the correct answer

Hope that makes sense

Re: GMATprep2: Is x+y<1?

nhai2003 wrote:Is x+y<1?

1) x<8/9
2)y<1/9

OA later.
Thanks guys

it cannot be a or b because you need the x and y to solve the problem

Combining both statements: get same denominator

(64/72) + (9/72)< 1

73/72< 1

So x+y can be greater than 1 or less than 1.....ANSWER IS E.

Because this is an inference problem, I believe the best answer is E.

"Look at those cars. Theirs is really ugly."

"Look at those cars. Theirs is really ugly."

I believe this sentence discusses several cars in the first sentence, but in the second it is possessive to a group. Categorizing in a group makes it singular. That is the best analysis I can give. I believe the sentence is correct

You have a great Quant score. Focus more on the verbal next time around. If everyone gave up this forum would not exist. I would suggest you just spend more time on the Verbal portion. You might have been been exhausted by the latter part of the test. Take a break, 1 or 2 weeks, and get the ball rol...

This is the first step

Hi,
I would definitely prepare to take the test again. I studied for 2 months, took the gmat and got a 490. I just retook it and got a 590 (43Q 29V). Do not give up..have the focus and the drive and I am sure you will break the 650 mark. Good luck on your studying.
