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.

Genre: Mathematics

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

Wir sind nicht allein! - Brian Greene über unsere Doppelgänger im All In seinem neuen Buch macht sich Physiker und Bestsellerautor Brian Greene auf die Suche nach der »verborgenen Wirklichkeit« im Universum. Er zeigt, warum vieles dafür spricht, dass wir in den Weiten des Kosmos nicht allein sind, und er beschreibt, welchen Parallelwelten die Astrophysiker auf der Spur sind. Wie keinem Zweiten gelingt es ihm dabei, physikalische Spitzenforschung mit hohem Unterhaltungswert zu verbinden.

«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)
