ACE THE GMAT is based on a simple but powerful observation: Test-takers who score high on the GMAT exam do so primarily by understanding how to solve a finite number of the most important, recurring problems that appear on the GMAT. What are these important, recurring problems? The answer to this question is the basis of this book. This manual provides in-depth analysis of over 200 all-star problems that are key to mastering the seven major GMAT problem types including Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency, Sentence Correction, Critical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Analytical Writing, and Integrated Reasoning. Apart from providing readers with answers and full explanations, a special feature of this book is that each problem is categorized by type (“classification”), rated by difficulty level (“chili rating”), and supplemented with a problem-solving strategy (“snapshot”). “Chance favors the prepared mind.” Whether you’re a candidate already enrolled in a test-prep course or are undertaking self-study, this guidebook will serve as a rigorous skill-building study guide to help you conquer the math, verbal, analytical writing, and integrated reasoning sections of the exam. Studying for the math and verbal sections of the GMAT exam requires some 100 hours of study time. This book’s content is conveniently divided into topics, which require two to three hours of study time per day. Total study time will vary between 80 to 120 hours for the entire 40 days. Solving (Official exam instructions for Problem Solving, Strategies and approaches, Review of basic math, Multiple-choice problems, Answers and explanations); Chapter 3 – Data Sufficiency (Official exam instructions for Data Sufficiency, Strategies and approaches, How are answers chosen in Data Sufficiency? How do the big seven numbers work? Multiple-choice problems, Answers and explanations); Chapter 4 – Sentence Correction (Official exam instructions for Sentence Correction, Strategies and approaches, Review of Sentence Correction, Multiple-choice problems, Answers and explanations); Chapter 5 – Critical Reasoning (Official exam instructions for Critical Reasoning, Strategies and approaches, Review of Critical Reasoning, Multiple-choice problems, Answers and explanations); Chapter 6 – Reading Comprehension (Official exam instructions for Reading Comprehension, Strategies and approaches, Review of Reading Comprehension, Answers and explanations); Chapter 7 – Analytical Writing Workshop (Official exam instructions for the Analytical Writing Assessment, Strategies and approaches, Review of Analytical Writing, Essay exercises, Outlines and proposed solutions); Chapter 8 – Integrated Reasoning Workshop (Official exam instructions for Integrated Reasoning, Strategies and approaches; Review of Integrated Reasoning with exercises, Answers and explanations); Appendix I – GMAT and MBA Informational Websites (Registering for the GMAT exam; MBA fairs & forums; MBA social networks; GMAT courses; Other GMAT & MBA websites; Information on business school rankings); Appendix II – Contact Information for the World’s Leading Business Schools (U.S. business schools; Canadian business schools; European business schools; Australian business schools; Asia-Pacific business schools; Latin and South American business schools; South African business schools); Quiz – Answers; On a Personal Note; Praise for Ace the GMAT. “Finally, a book that helps you master those learning skills that are critical to success on the GMAT.” —Linda B. Meehan, former Assistant Dean & Executive Director of Admissions, Columbia Business School

The Official Guide has lots of problems to practice on, but Ace the GMAT is superb for helping understand conceptually how the problems work. I highly recommend this manual as your first line of defense. It helped me achieve a 700-plus GMAT score with only a month’s practice, despite English not being my first language.” —Sam Mottaghi, former consultant, Accenture; Cambridge Judge Business School graduate

Fine-tune your numerical mindset with a quantitative review that serves as a tool for perceiving probability in a new way. Whether you’re a high school student, college student, or a test-prep candidate, this book’s wealth of explanations and insights makes it a perfect learning companion. Enjoy the benefits of your own short course in probability: •Be able to think conceptually by understanding how key problems “fit” within the main topics of probability, permutations, combinations, and enumerations. *Master basic probability using a simple “flowchart” to identify the correct formulas. *Understand when to “add” probabilities and when to “multiply” probabilities. *Be able to distinguish between events that are independent versus not independent and events that are mutually exclusive versus not mutually exclusive. *Grasp key differences between permutations and combinations and look for key words such as “arrangements” or “selections” to indicate the correct problem type. *Solve tricky permutation problems that involve repeated letters or numbers. *Approach probability problems with a newfound confidence and competency. This book is focused on honing those thinking skills that are essential for mastering basic probability. Such thinking skills make it much more likely that a person will be able to understand the “how” and “why” of problem solving, approach the subject in a conceptual way, and grasp those key principles that act as themes to bind related problems. These skills combine the science of math with the art of numbers. “To get started in probability theory, all you need are a few basic principles. Here they are, clear and uncluttered, in a short, simple book that comes as a welcome breath of fresh air.” —Dr. Ian Stewart, author of 17 Equations That Changed the World and the Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.

«Ein Wunder. Und kein geringes.» (Die Welt) Nach fast fünfzig Ehejahren hat Enid Lambert nur ein Ziel: ihre Familie zu einem letzten Weihnachtsfest um sich zu scharen. Alles könnte so schön sein, gemütlich, harmonisch. Doch Parkinson hat ihren Mann Alfred immer fester im Griff, und die drei erwachsenen Kinder durchleben eigene tragikomische Malaisen. Gary steckt in einer Ehekrise. Chip versucht sich als Autor. Und Denise ist zwar eine Meisterköchin, hat aber in der Liebe kein Glück. Jonathan Franzen ist ein großartiger Roman gelungen: Familien- und Gesellschaftsgeschichte in einem. «Eine Sensation.» (Der Spiegel) «Jonathan Franzen ist das größte Sprachtalent, das die amerikanische Literatur seit John Updike hervorgebracht hat.» (Literaturen) «Man möchte Jonathan Franzen genial nennen.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Man geht mit jenem eigentümlichen Gefühl aus der Lektüre hervor, das nur große Literatur wecken kann: Man fühlt sich beschenkt und bereichert.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

»Dieses Buch bietet eine andere, ernsthaftere Alternative zum materiellen Erfolg an. Das heißt, es ist eigentlich weniger eine Alternative als viel-mehr eine Ausweitung der Bedeutung von ›Erfolg‹ auf etwas Größeres als das bloße Bemühen, eine gute Stellung zu finden und sich nichts zuschulden kommen zu lassen. Und auch etwas Größeres als bloße Freiheit. Es setzt ein positives Ziel, auf das man hinarbeiten kann, das einen aber nicht einengt. Das, so scheint mir, ist der Hauptgrund für den Erfolg des Buches. Es traf sich, daß die ganze Kultur genau nach dem auf der Suche war, was dieses Buch anzubieten hat.« Robert M. Pirsig
