Gentlemen In my way I finally beat the gmat! My Advice: 1st Quality then Quantity I am international and tried everything from Pincenton to Kaplan, Manhatan, and so on but none of them was good enough for Verbal.

I heard different stories so I would like to hear from you according to your vast experience....

I get an answer of E. Let x = price of cupcake, y = price of donut, C = # of cupcakes, D = # of donuts. You are given that xC + yD = 6, and want to find D. (1) 2y = 3x - 0.1 (2) (x + y) / 2 = 0.35, or x + y = 0.70 Either statement by itself is insufficient to solve for D in the first equation given...

Re: Ok

What about GMAT Focus? Was that helpful? I asked about the correlation between MGMAT and GMATPrep because I found MGMAT math a lot more complex than the OG. Thx. GFocus is very good but if you have the OG 11 and 12 I heard you won´t need the exercises. Nevertheless, it could help you to evaluate s...
