Here are some nice guides on counting methods and probability. If these concepts seem difficult for you, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Many people put too much emphasis on these types of math questions, but in reality they appear on the actual GMAT infrequently. Just make sure you have a basic understanding of counting methods/probability/permutations/combinations and you will be sufficiently prepared. Do not go crazy studying these "advanced" GMAT math topics.

A very concise presentation of the concepts, indeed.

Thanks a lot. :)
