Learning via games - prime factorization

All my test prep resources keep emphasizing how important it is to know the prime numbers and prime factors for test day.

Hey Harsh, Now that you're past that point-of-no-return (or no refund), I'd advise you to go in and take the test, because: 1) Schools only care about your top score, with very few exceptions.

How did you prepare for ur verbal? To be honest, I haven't done too much verbal preparation in the official sense. Historically I've tested well on verbal sections of standardized tests, and the GMAT prep tests I've taken so far have confirmed that verbal isn't the area that I need to focus on. If ...

It would be great if we could put our heads together for a more detailed breakdown.
