You can't 'improve' your quant score. Ok get a 51 instead of a 50. 50 or 51 in my view is the same. It shows you are a Quant monster. 51 is rare but 50 is stellar. So you want to get your Verbal up from 39? You will be better off channeling your verbal abilities to the essays. Going through this pro...

I am not sure how trustworthy the scores are but postings on the net do seem to indicate that the overall scores are somewhat accurate... I am a bit surprised though I have attempted 2 CD tests so far and the quant is...

Beautiful method - Rahul. Thanks. This is great. In this specific case since the items are all "different" I think it can be thought of as assigning the children to each distinct gift and not the other way around.

A million has 6 zeros

For numerator 100 mill minus 100
