If X is <-8 than it is < average of -8 and Y (which i...

Kicked TOEFL's rear end

Ok, so after taking GMAT and scoring 710 (much lower than expected), I decided to keep with my plan and tackle TOEFL given that I had to take it as part of eligibility criteria.

Both damage morale , but layoffs damage it less , since the aggrieved have, after all, left. Thus, when companies must reduce personnel costs during recessions, they are likely to lay off employees . Not bringing any outside emotion or knowledge into the argument, we can see that layoff = less mora...

I am still not sure about III, if government if inefficient due to civil service employees, why can't I infer that most of the employees are from civil service.

the answer is simply A. Here is why: I - author is stating it directly in the text " Since Civil Service employees know how hard it is to fire them, they tend to loaf " II - It is not mentioned anywhere (only playing with republicans' emotions :-) ) III - Author says that because civil servants loaf...

Hi: Do you only see the issue when taking timed test or is 530 also under timed conditions. Note that before you conquer time, you must conquer the question types ad fundamentals.

Hi: I will PM you the RC technique that worked for me (may or may not work for you). As for quant - of course OG is a good resource.
