Are there a good set of problems with permutations specifically on gmatclub? Or ones that someone would like to share in this thread. I want to have the difficulty of deciding whether to a problem is P or C, and more often than not I can do these problems using combinations and just account for the permutations later on.

I wanted to see and do problems that were much easier to do using permutations than combinations. Especially word problems but after searching I don't see a good compendium of permutation problems here on gmatclub and would like to use permutations for such cases and as alternative or quicker methods for solving problems I might come across.
