COMBINATION and PROBABILITY - references.

If you have problems with combination and probability you can use this reference page to find information quickly.
I guess my small contribution to the GMATclub community will help other people to crack 800 score.

NOTES FROM WALKER

#1. Com-prob problems always have a few different solutions. Try to solve the problems in many ways, and that will give you self-reliance.

#2. Use enumeration of possibilities for the problems with complex restrictions.

#3. "How can I apply here $$C^n_k$$ or $$P^n_k$$?" - is a wrong question. Always understand what the formulas mean.

Walker - awesome; simply awesome. Are you Walker as in Walker: Texas Ranger. Because if you are, a Chuck Norris reference comes to mind: "When Chuck Norris falls into water, he does not get wet. The water gets Chuck Norris."

Nice one man.
