The word processor is rudimentary, with only cut, paste, and delete functions.
Typing speed is really not much of a factor because your essay will only be three to five paragraphs in length. However, if you do not type at all, you should spend some time getting comfortable with using a keyboard.
The Math section contains two types of questions: problem solving and data sufficiency. Problem solving questions are the typical multiple-choice math questions that you know from the SAT and other standardized tests. The data sufficiency questions are less familiar. They test the same topics arithmetic, algebra, and geometry , but the format is different.
You will learn about this format and how to approach it systematically in the first class. You can expect that 50 to 60 percent of the math questions will be problem solving, and 40 to 50 percent will be data sufficiency.
The Verbal section includes three types of questions: sentence correction, critical reasoning, and reading comprehension. Sentence correction questions test your ability to spot grammatical mistakes.
Critical reasoning questions test your ability to understand and analyze arguments. Reading comprehension questions test your ability to find information in a long passage. Experimental Questions The Math section includes nine experimental questions, and the Verbal section includes eleven experimental questions. These questions do not count toward your score.
In other words, you pay for the privilege of serving as a research subject every time you take a GMAT. There is no way to identify which questions are experimental. They are sprinkled randomly throughout each section. Scratch Paper Avoid mistakes. Write out Because this test is presented on a computer screen, you will not be able to write your work on on the problem to label diagrams, scratch off answers, circle key words, and so scratch paper.
Instead, you are required to do all of your work on the scratch paper provided at the test center. Do not try to work out problems in your head! That is a sure-fire way to make careless mistakes. You will be provided with six sheets of scratch paper, stapled together, when you begin the test. Instead, try to fit all of your work for at least one section on the sheets provided.
During the break between sections, you can exchange your used sheets for a fresh set if necessary. Start practicing using your scratch paper now. When you work homework problems in this manual, do not circle words or write notes directly on the problem. Instead, write everything off to the side, as if you were using separate scratch paper. Get a notebook to use when you work problems from the Official Guide or do online drills and tests.
Set up each page just as you would your scratch paper during an exam, and do all your work in the notebook. Be sure to label the problems so that you can review them easily once you have finished.
Scores The questions and presentation of your GMAT are carefully designed to produce results which, when analyzed, produce a bell curve. In other words, very few people get a perfect score, and equally few people get every question wrong.
The majority of us wind up in the middle, somewhere between and The most familiar number is the overall, or composite, score. This is the number you have seen in all the business school rankings and similar literature.
It ranges from to in point increments. Your composite score is determined from a combination of your scores on the Math and Verbal sections of the test. A score of ranks in the 50th percentile, meaning half of all examinees score above that level and half score below that level.
GMAT scores are valid for up to five years. You also receive separate Verbal and Math subscores, which theoretically range from 0 to 60 for each section. In practice, scores below 10 or above 50 are rare. The mean average Verbal score is 27, and the mean Math score is Introduction comparable ability, even if they had totally different questions on their respective exams. Most schools are not very interested in your Verbal and Math subscores unless there is a significant gap between the two.
The AWA score is not very There are two essays, and two readers one human, one computer look at each important for most one.
Verbal Workout for the GMAT (The Princeton Review)
ETS then averages all four scores and rounds the result to the nearest half applicants. Ultimately, this points to the fact that this book is teaser. For the actual Princeton Review class? My guess is they are hoping people download their other GMAT guides, those loaded with more questions.
True, that level of reading can be warranted when a book is trying to impart a specific approach. Sure, I get the main idea of the passage and know to avoid extreme language in the answer choices… but really there is so much more to the GMAT than that. That is not to say nothing is helpful here.
You get math drills, i. Unless you are looking to score about , the math help in this book will not help you attain a competitive score.
Nevertheless, many of us are rusty in math, and in that sense, The Princeton Review provides a better primer than Kaplan which already presupposes a decent level of math knowledge. Again, same advice: if you are just beginning this will be helpful. In the first example, the subject is Each, not witnesses.
Witnesses is the object of the preposition. Similarly, Either is the subject of the third example, not restaurants. When the subject of a sentence is a pronoun followed by a prepositional phrase, the pronoun is the main subject.
Make sure the pronoun, not the object of the preposition, agrees with the verb.
Test's Subscription Expires:
Either and neither are singular when they serve as the subject of a sentence. Any pronoun that ends in -body, -thing , or -one is singular. These pronouns are singular and take singular verbs: no one someone everyone anyone none nobody somebody everybody anybody each nothing something everything anything Compound Subjects When a subject includes more than one noun, we call it a compound subject.
My best friend and her sister are very similar in personality. When and joins two subjects, you must use a plural verb. However, compound subjects joined by or, either. In these cases, the verb agrees with the noun closest to it. Neither the bride nor the groom was able to remember the names of all the guests.
Neither Joe nor his cousins were happy on the first day of school. When you refer to the number of things, youre talking about one particular number, and you need a singular verb.
The number of bad movies showing this summer is unbelievable.
A number of my friends are going to the beach this weekend. Gloria and Calvin are, is no longer friends. The number of times I have told you I do not want to go to the concert with you amaze, amazes me. Samantha, in addition to Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda, is, are going to the beach on Saturday. Neither Mark nor his neighbors is, are able to open the doors to the patio. Next month, Jack and Chrissy, along with Janet, is, are moving to the larger apartment upstairs.
Toms family is, are considering whether there are, is any affordable places to go on vacation in Europe.
Each of the boys is, are overwhelmed by the amount of work to be done. Every one of the golf balls has, have been hit into the sand trap. This sandwich is the only one of all the sandwiches made at the deli that is, are inedible. Skiing is an example of a sport that is, are best learned as a child. In the previous sentence, the word they replaces the word pronouns.
Some pronouns function as subjects, while others function as objects. Another set of pronouns indicates possession. He has invited many friends and family. Matts sister, Teresa, is bringing the cake. She has promised him that it will be chocolate. Each pronoun agrees with the noun it replaces. He, his, and him all refer to Matt. She refers to Teresa. It replaces cake. Just as subjects and verbs must agree, pronouns must agree in number with the nouns they replace.
The noun a pronoun replaces is called the antecedent. Use a singular pronoun to replace a singular noun, and use a plural pronoun to replace a plural noun. The same types of nouns that make subject-verb agreement tricky can cause problems for pronoun agreement.
Look at the following examples: Everyone should do their homework. The golden retriever is one of the smartest breeds of dogs, but they cannot do your GMAT homework for you. In both examples, the use of their or they is incorrect. Since everyone is singular, it must be paired with a singular pronoun, such as his or her. Either his or her would be considered correct in this case since we have no in formation about gender.
In the second example, they refers to the golden retriever. Since the antecedent retriever is singular, the pronoun it should be used in the second clause.
If the pronoun could conceivably refer to more than one noun, you face the problem of pronoun ambiguity. Pronouns must unambiguously refer to a single noun. Look at the following example: Lisa Marie was supposed to meet Jen at the museum at eleven, but she was late. It is unclear to whom she refers, Lisa Marie or Jen.
The sentence should be rewritten to clear up the confusion. If Jen were the one who arrived late, the corrected sentence would read: Lisa Marie was supposed to meet Jen at the museum at eleven, but Jen was late. Pronoun Consistency Pronoun usage must also be consistent. Look at the following example: One should watch your purse on a crowded subway.
The sentence seems to be saying that some unknown person should be on the lookout for your purse on a crowded subway. For the purposes of the GMAT, sentences that refer to an undefined person can use either you or one, as long as a single pronoun is used consistently.
The example above could be rewritten two different ways: One should watch ones purse on a crowded subway. You should watch your purse on a crowded subway. Quick Quiz: Pronoun Agreement Correct the pronoun agreement in the following sentences.
Not all sentences have an error. Each of the chefs makes their own special dish. I still keep my diary and scrapbooks from childhood because they remind me of my youth. A student must see their advisor before turning in his thesis. The person who stole my bicycle is a thief. One should always look where he is going when you cross the street. In , the Netherlands agreed to limit fishing in certain Atlantic Ocean beds, but in , they terminated the agreement.
The flock of seagulls flew overhead before it swooped down and settled on the water. Assignment 1 Who vs. Whom These two words cause lots of trouble, but they shouldnt. If youre confronted with a choice between who and whom, look at the role played by the pronoun in the sentence. If the pronoun is performing an action, its the subject, and you should use who.
If the pronoun is acted upon by the verb or follows a preposition, its an object, and you should use whom. The detective knows who committed the murder. To whom should I speak about the matter? If you find yourself struggling with the choice between who and whom, try replacing the pronoun with she or her.
If a sentence should use she, use who. If a sentence should use her, choose whom. For example, it would be correct to say, The detective knows she committed the murder, because she is a subject pronoun. Similarly, it would be correct to say, I should speak to her about the matter.
The first example needs a subject pronoun, and the second example needs an object pronoun. The examples below illustrate the tenses youll encounter in GMAT sentences. Present Past Future I study, I am studying, I have studied I studied, I had studied, I was studying I will study, I will be studying, I will have studied The variations within the basic categories of past, present, and future allow us to express ideas more precisely.
If a tense uses a helper verb, such as a form of to be or to have, use the helper verb to determine the tense. For example, I was walking is in the past tense because was denotes the past. I am walking is in the present because am denotes the present. Lets look at the variations in more detail. Knowing the names of the tenses isnt necessary, but you need to be able to classify them as past, present, or future.
Present The simple present expresses a habitual action, a fact, or something that is happening now. Beth runs three miles every morning. Both baseball games are on television right now. When you want to describe something thats in progress right now, use the present progressive tense. Its sometimes called the present continuous tense. Present progressive uses a form of to be followed by the -ing form of the verb also known as the present participle. The kids on the playground are laughing loudly.
This tense uses the helping verb has or have followed by the past participle. Astrid has read a book a week since she was twelve. I have never been to Spain.

Past The simple past indicates a completed action or condition. I wrote my final paper over the weekend. Use past progressive to describe an action that was ongoing in the past.
We were sleeping when the fire alarm went off. Use the past perfect when you want to make it clear that one action in the past happened before another. This tense requires the helping verb had. Before she began college last fall, she had never been more than twenty miles from home. In the example above, the past perfect action was cut off by an intervening event in the more recent past.
The past perfect cannot stand alone as the only verb in a sentence. Future Simple future, as you would expect, describes an action that will take place in the future.
This tense requires the use of the helper verb will. I will clean my room tomorrow. Use future progressive to describe an ongoing action that takes place in the future. The tense is formed by using the future form of the helping verb to be plus the ing form of a verb. I will be cleaning my room when you arrive. Use future perfect to indicate an action that will be completed by a specified time in the future.
We will not have finished dinner by the time you arrive. Assignment 1 Quick Quiz: Verb Tense Choose the correct verb tense in the parentheses for each sentence below. Yesterday afternoon, clouds rolled in, the sky grew ominous, and thunder was, is heard in the distance.
