Hey tallazndood,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Yes, I am an engineer/math/science guy and english is not my first language.

Are you planning to give GMAT again? I am thinking of enrolling in some prep course (knewton) as I don't know how to improve on my own.

Hi Jessica, Thanks a lot for your reply. 1) If I take the gmat for the 3rd time, will it have a negative impact on my application? Does it matter how many times you take the gmat? 2) Now that almost all schools accept GRE as well, should I try giving GRE instead of GMAT? I am trying to figure out wh...

Hi money9111,

Thanks for your reply. By "time off" do you mean if I took a break between first and second gmat attempt?

Absolute Values Dilemma

Hi Guys, I'm little confused regarding the modulus operator: In equations such as x|x| < 2^x. If x<0, why is the left side negative. For x<0, shouldn't |x| be -ve and because -ve * -ve = +ve, the left side should be positive. Whenever we solve equations with absolute values, for x>0, we consider the...
