Bayes's Theorem on GMAT? [#permalink] New post 09 Jul 2013, 10:50
I'm looking over probability right now and would like to know if I have to be familiar with Bayes's theorem. At first glance, it looks challenging and I do not want to spend time on the subject if it is not going to be tested.

Thanks!

Jose,
I guarantee you, you absolutely 100% do not need to know Bayes' Theorem. That is way beyond the GMAT.

See these blogs for much more typical GMAT probability problems.

I hope all this helps.
