**The
Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®)**
is a standardized assessment. Each individual
test that is administered contains the same
format and areas of content. The test is comprised
of three main sections-analytical writing, quantitative
reasoning, and verbal reasoning. Each of these
areas is measured using different types of questions
that have specific instructions for each.

Questions are chosen from a very large
pool of test questions categorized by content
and difficulty. Only one question at a time
is presented to you on the screen. The first
question is always of middle difficulty. The
selection of each question thereafter is determined
by your responses to all previous questions.
In other words, the adaptive test adjusts to
your ability level-you will get few questions
that are too easy or too difficult for you.

You must answer each question and may not return
to or change your answer to any previous question.
If you answer a question incorrectly by mistake-or
correctly by lucky guess-you answer to subsequent
questions will lead you back to questions that
are at the appropriate level of difficulty for
you.

Analytical
Writing Assessment

The GMAT with the Analytical Writing
Assessment, consists of two essays topics
selected by the computer. 30 min are allowed
to respond to each topic. One task is to analyse
an issue; the other is to analyse an argument.

Quantitative

This section tests elementary mathematical
skills. This section contains 37 multiple-choice
questions of either two question types, Data
Sufficiency or Problem Solving. You are allowed
a maximum of 75 minutes to complete the section.

Verbal

This section contains 41 multiple-choice
questions on Reading Comprehension, Critical
Reasoning, and Sentence Correction. The duration
is 75 min.

Your GMAT score can significantly affect your
chances of admission. Without a good score,
you have little or no chance of making it
to a top school. You need to practice on the
computer for the writing section of the GMAT
– in which you have to type two essays
on the computer in 60 minutes. If you are
not used to regularly working on the computer,
you might find yourself woefully short of
words on the day of the test.

The GMAT requires you to have strong fundamentals
in Math (High School) and English grammar.

Note: Probability questions are becoming common
on the GMAT. Most test guides are obsolete
and do not address these questions.DON'T guess
randomly. Always try to eliminate as many
answer choices as possible before you confirm
your response. For Maths section be Cool with
Questions are easy so don't be too quick.
You won't get extra score if you finish early!

TIPS
on Probability

For Independent Events Probability
of A and B P(A and B) = P(A) × P(B).

In other words, the probability of A and B
both occurring is the product of the probability
of A and the probability of B. Probability
of A or B P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B). In other
words, the probability of A or B occurring
is the sum of the probability of A and the
probability of B.

For
Dependent Events

If A and B are not independent, then
the probability of A and B is

P(A and B) = P(A) × P(B|A) where P(B|A)
is the conditional probability of B given
A.

# There are m different ways of doing the
first part, and there are n different ways
of doing the second part. The problem is to
find the number of ways of doing the entire
job.

answer is:m*n

DO AS MANY PRACTICE QUESTIONS & TESTS
AS POSSIBLE. THE MORE YOU PRACTICE, THE BETTER
YOU WILL SCORE

Be Cool! Its very important for quantitative
section. Prepare well on Mode ,Median, Probability,
Permutations, Combinations. You may be getting
around 4 questions on above topics.

We
are listing some TIPS.

• 0 is
not prime number.

• 1 is
not prime number.

• 2 is
prime number.

• probability
=(Result you are looking)/(Total results).

• n!(n
factorial)=n*(n-1)*(n-2)*...1

• Permutations
is arrangement of things in definite order.
While in Combination order doesn't matter.
Median is the middle value in a set of numbers
above and below it.

**Example 1** : Consider
G={2,4,7,8,9,12,14}

In this case 8 is median because there lies
three other numbers before and after 8.

**Example 2 :** Consider G={2,4,7,8,9,12}

In this case median will be average of 7 and
8 i.e. 7.5

Mode is the number or range of numbers in
a set that occurs the most frequently.

Example Consider G={1,2,4,8,17,2,4,5,6,7,8,2}

In the above set 2 occurs thrice so this is
mode.

Range is defined as difference between maximum
and minimum numbers in a set.

For above set Range is 17-1 i.e. 16.

Standard Deviation of a set is measure of
the set's variation from its mean.

Example Consider two sets G1={3,4,3,4} and
G2={10,15,14,16}

Then It can be seen G1 has lower S.D. as compared
to G2.

...Practice well!
