The vocabulary list presented here contains words that frequently appear on the GMAT and many terms that you may encounter in the course of the exam. Study it carefully to familiarize yourself with these words. Refer to it to check the meaning of any difficult words you may encounter in other parts of this Guide.

...remains comprised nine pieces     of skull, a broken jaw with two teeth in place, a few stone tools,     and some animal bones, all of which had been discovered on a farm     near Piltdown Common in Sussex. 10  When pieced together the skull looked distinctly human. Although     Piltdown Man, as the hominid became known, had unusually thick     bones, the brain case was large and rounded. There was no sign     of prominent brow ridges or other apelike features. However, the     shape of the jaw bone resembled that of an ape. The only human 15  characteristic of this jaw was the wear on the two molars, which     were ground down flat, as is frequently true of hominids who eat     tough or abrasive foods, such as seeds. In other words the     creature had the jaw of an ape and the skull of Homo sapiens. The primitive stone tools found with these remains suggested a 20  remote age for Piltdown Man, perhaps the Early Pleistocene or     even the Late Pliocene. (In 1912 experts thought the Pliocene     lasted from 1 million to 600 000 years ago. Scientists now date     it to between 5 million and 1.7 million years ago.) This date     was also supported by some animal bones found with Piltdown Man. 25  To most scientists of the time, Piltdown Man fulfilled a     prediction made by the pioneering evolutionist Charles Darwin,     who had believed that humans and the apes could be connected     genetically through a still undiscovered creature.

...divided by 8. Step 3: Approach Strategically Remember the Classic Quadratic a2 – b2 5 (a 1 b)(a – b). So x 2 – y 2 5 (x 1 y)(x – y). Since the remainder when x 1 y is divided by 8 is 7, we can say that x 1 y 5 8N1 1 7, where N1 is a positive integer. Since the remainder when x 2 y is divided by 8 is 5, we can say that x 2 y 5 8N2 1 5, where N2 is a positive integer. Now x 2 2 y 2 5 (x 1 y) (x 2 y) 5 (8N1 1 7)(8N2 1 5) 5 64N1 N2 1 40N1 1 56N2 1 35 Because the coefficients 64, 40, and 56 are all multiples of 8 and N1 and N2 are integers, it follows that 64N1 N2, 40N1, and 56N2 are also all multiples of 8. The sum of three multiples of 8 is itself a multiple of 8, and therefore the quantity 64N1 N2 1 40N1 1 56N2 is a multiple of 8. In other words, when 64N1 N2 1 40N1 1 56N2 is divided by 8, the remainder is 0. This leaves only 35, which when divided by 8 has a remainder of 3. Therefore, when x 2 – y 2 is divided by 8, the remainder is 0 1 3 5 3. Choice (A) is correct.

...Analysis of an Argument Questions for the GMAT® Exam This document contains all Analysis of an Argument questions used on the GMAT® exam. Each question is followed by this statement: Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In your discussion be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the use of evidence in the argument. For example, you may need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking and what alternative explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion. You can also discuss what sort of evidence would strengthen or refute the argument, what changes in the argument would make it more logically sound, and what, if anything, would help you better evaluate its conclusion. The following appeared as part of an annual report sent to stockholders by Olympic Foods, a processor of frozen foods: “Over time, the costs of processing go down because as organizations learn how to do things better, they become more efficient. In color film processing, for example, the cost of a 3-by-5-inch print fell from 50 cents for five-day service in 1970 to 20 cents for one-day service in 1984. The same principle applies to the processing of food. And since Olympic Foods will soon celebrate its 25th birthday, we can expect that our long experience will enable us to minimize costs and thus maximize profits.” Discuss how well reasoned . . . etc. The following appeared in a memorandum from the business department of the Apogee......

Given the richness of our language, why must we resort to words taken from modern foreign languages to challenge our best spellers? Ursprache is listed in our dictionary, as are words from many other foreign languages, but future spelling bees should limit themselves to words in our dictionary that have been anglicized in all aspects because spelling English words, not knowledge of linguistics and international phonetics, is the point of these contests. Which of the following can most reasonably be inferred from the argument above? The spelling contest winner knew how to spell most of the anglicized words in the dictionary. Foreign words are more difficult than anglicized words for all contestants to spell. Spelling contestant winners should be determined by their facility with all aspects of language. To spell foreign words, contestants must recognize the language and know its pronunciation. The English language contains more borrowed words than most other languages. 7.

...700+ GMAT Problem Solving Probability and Combinations Questions With Explanations Collected by Bunuel Solutions by Bunuel 1. Mary and Joe are to throw three dice each. The score is the sum of points on all three dice. If Mary scores 10 in her attempt what is the probability that Joe will outscore Mary in his? A. 24/64 B. 32/64 C. 36/64 D. 40/64 E. 42/64 Expected value of a roll of one dice is 1/6(1+2+3+4+5+6)=3.5. Expected value of three dices is 3*3.5=10.5. Mary scored 10 so the probability to have more then 10, or more then average is the same as to have less than average=1/2. P=1/2. Answer: B. Discussed at: 2. Denise is trying to open a safe whose combination she does not know. IF the safe has 4000 possible combinations, and she can try 75 different possibilities, what is the probability that she does not pick the one correct combination. A. 1 B. 159/160 C. 157/160 D. 3/160 E. 0 When trying the first time the probability Denise doesn't pick the correct combination=3999/4000 Second time, as the total number of possible combinations reduced by one, not picking the right one would be 3998/3999. Third time 3997/3998 ... And the same 75 times. So we get: [pic] every denominator but the first will cancel out and every nominator but the last will cancel out as well. We'll get 3925/4000=157/160.

...Breaking down a Long GMATPrep SC problem A student recently asked me what they should do when faced with Sentence Correction problems containing very long underlines and a “jumble” in the answer choices. Many sentence correction questions can easily be scanned vertically, in order to find differences among the answers. But in some problems, major parts of the sentence move around and the basic structure changes (for instance, an independent clause becomes dependent and vice versa). If you’re a Manhattan GMAT student, we would classify these kinds of questions as ones for which the “splits” are more challenging to identify. This week and next we’re going to analyze a couple of GMATPrep^ Sentence Correction questions that possess these characteristics. (Note: click here to read about the general process of attacking Sentence Correction questions; the techniques we discuss in this current article are to be used only when necessary.)
