I think memorizing common FDPs mentioned in the MGMAT FDP Guide is essential to completing those 700+ FDP questions within 2 mins. I've created a list/visualisation/memory-aid of the common FDP's list. In addition, I've also created a flowchart (based on the one developed by VeritasPrepKarishma). I printed this out, and have it on my wall -- so that I can refer to it, or just stare at it every morning.

Feel free to append this to the Gmat Club Math book.

I like it :) really. FDP is one of the most "must remember" as cold for a question.

Totally! Being able to effortlessly convert between FDPs will simplify FDP questions -- at least the computation part, you will still have to be able to come up with the equation/s :oops:

A simple way to remember some of the FDPs.

Remember 9-11 tragedy?
1/9 = 11.11%
1/11 - 09.09 %

1/7 = 14.28% (double of 7 is 14 and double of 14 is 28)


1/27 = 3.70%
1/37 = 2.70%
27 in 37 and 37 in 27
