Anxiety effecting accuracy

The biggest problem for me is test pressure building up during the test, which causes me to get questions wrong which is, exactly what GMAT tests you on.

Can anyone recommend any strategies to deal with this kind of pressure?

Thanks for the reply. I understand that a low gmat doesn't automatically eliminate a candidate. My question (or rather concern) is on the weight age of the GMAT. Can they pick up a candidate with a GMAT of 540 suiting this profile?

This is what Cartman from south park means "I kick you in the nuts, Kenny!". There are some serious numbers involved here. I doubt you'll get a question like this on the gmat - maybe as a data sufficiency question, but not PS, specially not taking such big numbers.

Read somewhere that whenever we have "so as", it is always incorrect on the GMAT. But I also read that So (adj) as to (verb) is correct.

Can someone tell me what would sound right if I wanted to place "in order to" somewhere here?

Thanks

The key to this question are the words "Only Brand A"

The Venn diagram drawn above puts 60 and x in one circle, which doesn't apply in this case. In essence, you would have to take the middle slice (x) separately from 60 and 3x.
