Cracking The New GMAT 2013 (With DVD) is a study guide filled with practice problems, drills, sample test questions, and general test advice, for students who wish to take the Graduate Management Aptitude Test.
Summary Of The Book
The Graduate Management Admissions Test, or GMAT, is a computerized test that assesses an individual’s ability and skill level in integrated reasoning, writing, verbal, analytical, and quantitative domains. Scores obtained from GMAT will determine a student’s admission to a particular graduate management program, such as MBA, Master of Finance, or Master of Accountancy.
In Cracking The New GMAT 2013 (With DVD), Robinson and Martz offer expert advice on how to think about the GMATs, including tips on how to crack certain GMAT question types.
Then the text proceeds to provide students with a thorough review of four key areas, Math, Verbal, Reasoning, and Analytical writing. Some of the topics included in these four areas are data sufficiency, geometry, algebra, arithmetic, reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction. In the final two sections of Cracking The New GMAT 2013, the authors have included warm up tests and practice bins for the Math and Verbal sections. For additional support, students can access four full-length practice tests online.
Some other key features of this text includes a large number of sample problems which are similar to the ones on the GMAT test in June of 2012, and orderly instructions on GMAT question types such as multi source reasoning, two part analysis, graphics interpretation, and table analysis. The book also comes with a DVD which contains tutorials and advice.
