My method - is slow but it's really simple to think about. Derek is going 60 miles an hour or 1 Mile per minute. After 10 minutes, he has already traveled 10 miles. At 1:10, Emily leaves, she's going 2/3 miles per minute. At this point they are 45 miles from each other. When are they 0 miles from ea...

In Montauk's book, he makes a few points: 1. If you're in a traditional candidate group (consultants / engineers / bankers) - then you're more likely to stand out in R1 than R2. Take for example - if you're the 15th consultant they've read vs. the 150th. Also, my GMAT instructor once said, they have...

Show, Don't Tell

This is the advice that every MBA essay book gives. And yet, it seems like every MBA essay I read seems to tell more than show. I'm reading Richard Montauk's - how to get into a top MBA and the essays clearly tell more than show. I've read the 65 successful Harvard Bschool essays and sans a few of t...

Re: 670 - 46Q 35V Praise God - Thanks to MGMAT/BTG!

Between the first and second time I did a couple of things: 1. Went through middle to middle higher level questions of OG. Previously I just learned how to do the hard questions but realized that my base needed brushing up. 2. Really read through parts of sentence correction that I was having troubl...

I don't know why methods don't always work the same. Consider this problem A pet shop owner currently has 3 goldfish for every 5 angel fish. If she sells 60 goldfish and buys 300 angelfish, she will have 3 goldfish for every 7 angelfish. How many goldfish does she currently have. Previously - for th...

X % of boys at Jones elementary

90 students represent x percent of the boys at Jones Elementary School. If the boys at Jones Elementary make up 40% of the total school population of x students, what is x? 125 150 225 250 500 ( B ) The MGMAT explanation doesn't make sense to me. I guess I'm not understanding their method. Can someo...

She has a good reason for that: 800score tests are no good. As far as I can recall, they were not adaptive. I tried to retake one test and got the exact same questions in the same order, even though I tried to mix the errors. Verbal is not GMAT-styled, while quant is too "nitpicky". As always DanaJ...

800 Score.com

So my friend just took 800score.com and wants to know the validity of the test.

She got 38Q and 46V and a 700.

She is worried that the score is not real.
