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.
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. http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-math- ... ity-rules/http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-math- ... -question/http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-proba ... echniques/http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/geometric- ... -the-gmat/
I hope all this helps.
