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

The best business schools place great emphasis on a candidate's performance in the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test). Yet many students let themselves down by poor preparation and deliver results which are at best average and at worst very poor indeed. How to Pass the GMAT is your way to put yourself at the head of the queue of over 250,000 people who consider applying to business school each year. Written by Mike Bryon, a recognised expert in psychometrics and training solutions, the book gives you the skills you need to gain a competitive score that will stand out. Beginning with a "warm up" for candidates whose knowledge of algebra, geometry, grammar and critical reasoning may be somewhat rusty, the book then expands to provide a rigorous rehearsal regime for the real test. In the pages which follow, you can test yourself with six full-length and highly realistic practice questions which will assess your capabilities in problem solving, data sufficiency, reading comprehension, sentence correction and more. Or, for the busy candidate short on time but still needing to practice, there are 20 different mini-tests. Brimming with more than 600 highly-focused practice questions, the book also provides you with full answers, explanations and assessment of scores. This means that not only can you see where you've gone wrong, but you can also see where to improve your performance and revise your approach to deliver a GMAT score which will be both a credit to you and which will put you in the higher reaches of the admission queue.

The GMAT Critical Reasoning Grail spans more than 240 pages and helps you master Critical Reasoning on the GMAT in a systematic way. The book firstly builds a strong foundation by discussing the basics of Critical Reasoning and then addresses each question type in-depth. It then goes a step further and provides you 100 practice questions for intensive practice. Like the Sentence Correction Grail, the Critical Reasoning Grail is written in an engaging manner and will equip you with all the skills that you need to tackle Critical Reasoning questions confidently. This book is superior to the other books available for Critical Reasoning in many ways. The GMAT Critical Reasoning Grail contains the most up-to-date content for Critical Reasoning. For example, while other books focus on Main Point questions, these question types rarely appear on the GMAT now. Similarly question types such as Logically complete the passage, which are increasingly being tested on the GMAT, find no mention in other books, whereas the CR Grail has an entire chapter that discusses this question type. What also distinguishes the GMAT Critical Reasoning Grail is that it helps you master Critical Reasoning in a step-by-step manner, using jargon free language and does not make you dependent on the diagrammatic approach.It is also the only book that provides you 100 Critical Reasoning Questions for practice
