Optional Essay: Low GPA

I'm making some edits to my optional essay about my low undergraduate GPA and I was wondering If it would be detrimental to mention that I had a lack of direction in college which led to me not performing to the level I was capable of. I was took a whole bunch of difficult pre engineering classes th...

Algebra Problem

Is the first step to this problem to multiply by x to get rid of the denominator? I did this and was able to get 1-x^2+ x = y but I have no idea what to do next.

Post GMAT Plan

I took the GMAT last week and got a 500(Q36, V23). Not super ecstatic but not completely disappointed either. My CAT scores were around that score so being honest with myself it isn't a surprise despite being hopeful that you make catch a break on test day in your favor. That was my second attempt a...

Typically it isn't an issue. The last test I took I was a little behind so I probably shouldn't be too alarmed. I have one last CAT before test day so I will see how the timing goes on that one.

Hi sgraves, I'm hoping that you can add a bit more detail to your original post. Why EXACTLY are you getting exponent questions wrong? Do you know the exponent rules involved? Are you making little math mistakes? How often do you find yourself reviewing an exponent question that you got wrong and t...
