use time effectively

Make sure you raise your hand if you are planning to take a break. Supervisors take some time to rescue you and that takes some time from your 8 min break. And, if you really want to use all 8 min, don't come back so early from the break. If you come early supervisor will let you seat and log back i...

GMAT in 4 days, ready with strategy

THe GDay is coming close for me. I have been studying for about 8 months. Last month or two were most important in increasing score to about 670 (Q~49, V~35). This happened only because I studied more rather than tests based on DanaJ's advice. Somehow it convinced me that tests are only means to obs...

All you need to know is how the product of any two number results in zero at unit place. In this case 10 x some intereger and 5 x 2 so we need to find out how many 10s and 5s and 2s are there in 60! Number of 10s = 6 Number of 5s & 2s = 6 (remember that 5 x 2 gives 10, so this pair is considered as ...

University selection list needed

This is very general question.
I am going to take GMAT in a week. I need to make up my mind about university selection that I need to enter before taking the test. I only have one in my mind, so I need the list to choose from.
Can anybody send me the link please?

Just like you said Eric: I was able to lift myself to 49Q (just 7 mistakes) in GMATPrep. That's relief for me and gave boost to confidence. Any point I add in Q makes little easier for V side in order to achieve overall target.

GMAT Prep Reinstall question

After taking a full length test, I have been trying to uninstall & then reinstall GMAT Prep but, I am getting back to same test. I don't know how it remembers & show me the results of the test I took rather than giving new test.

Am I making any mistake? or I need to cleanup registry too?
