y,

thanks, Dani. that's a thorough explanation for B! basically, we're, in a way, assuming that the worst scrubber is still better than the best cleaner-burning fuel. thus, it (B) becomes irrelevant whether we choose the best or the worst of available scrubbers.

5) Have read on some sites, that schools do take it negatively if you already have a great score and improve my just ~20-30. I know, I need to take the final decision of whether to retake or not, but would really really appreciate if you guys can help me out in assessing the pros and cons keeping i...

Hello! I actually got dinged from all three of my MBA programs - Stanford, Haas, Kellogg. However, I DID get into the IMC (integrated marketing communications) program at Northwestern. It fits me better as I'm looking to break into branding and marketing... and I get access to Kellogg's marketing p...

at the outset, D looks out of scope as it talks about what a hypothetical situation (when hospitals reduce costs) would result in. otherwise, D only SEEMS to imply that hospitals may save money, but then in a way it contradicts the statement in the stimulus that says that insurance cos. have been li...

i thought of sharing this verbal ONLY report: V31
what's special about this is that despite the fact that i was able to get 13 questions right in a row later (24-36), i still scored low.
i acknowledge the fact that there are few mistakes initially, and 4 places with consecutive wrong answers.

B) No..this is opposing the argument and govt you've gotten the argument/conclusion wrong. the consumer advocate's argument IS in BOLD here: Recently, the government prohibited the sale of dietary supplements containing ephedra on the grounds that ephedra has been shown to have grave side effects. ...

Whereas, a strengther can be just another piece of info, which when added to the argument makes it more clear. It need not be mandatory for the argument. Hope you are getting what I want to say! yes, let's look at the conclusion again: consumer advocates argue that microwave ovens should not be acc...

B: All natural compounds are safe for human consumption. (too strong + if its true that all natural compounds are safe means ban is unresonable...weaking the argument) if all natural compounds, as you say, are safe, then the consumer advocate's argument that the ban is unreasonable is strengthened,...
