still working my way through these cards - very useful (thanks!!)

On page 38, I tried the following - is this a correct method for a quick solution? (or am I just lucky to get the right number out of it?)

Using only one piece of information that 20 chickens eat 3 days worth of food..... (and assuming all chickens eat the same amount)

1 day is 1/3 of 3 days... 1 chicken will eat 1/20 of the amount in 3 days, so will eat 1/3 of 1/20 in one day.....

1 chicken = (1/3)(1/20) = 1/60.

Therefore 60 chickens needed to eat a day's worth of food.

Still loving the slides (sorry - another question)

Page 47 - Coordinate Geometry 3.

As the axes do not have scales, you can't really say whether the gradient of A is greater or less than 1... if x and y are set to the same scale it actually looks jolly close to 1... (depends on how the resolution is set on your monitor!!!) to allow the student to be sure whether the slope is less than / greater than 1, and to answer correctly, some numbers could help

P48, Coordinate Geometry 6

"Find the equation of a line passing through the points A (5,4) and B (2,3)"

using Y = MX + C (was always taught to use c and not b... sue me )

As change in y is 1, and change in x is 3, that gives a line of gradient 1/3.

Putting this into the equation and solving where x = 5 and y = 4...

4 = 5/3 + c ... therefore c = 7/3

testing in B where x = 2 and y = 3
3 = 2/3 + 7/3 (correct)

Solution therefore y = x/3 + 7/3

<< since posting I noticed that the solution offered actually uses 6,3 as point B and not 2,3 as in the question

This is simply wonderful. Spoiling us a bit though ..lol.. I can hardly complain. All there is left to do is to take a print-out and carry it in my back pocket all the time. Maybe not the back pocket - but you get what I mean.

Thanks for this!!!

There's also a smartphone app with lots of cool bells & whistles if you want to keep your pockets clutter free:

Hmmm, it would be pretty cool if there was a iPod / iPad / iPhone flashcard app too....

has anyone hear successfully tried the flashcard strategy? i am struggling in quant, and willing to try anything. but how would flashcards fit into studying quant?

seems like quant relies on slowly and systematically building on a base of fundamentals. not taking little pieces at a time repeatedly until they stick.

I agree - I have not studied with these. My guess is that your best bet is to use these when you don't have other materials handy. I would definitely not replace your guidebooks with these.

Thanks so much bb and everyone that contributed to the flash cards. They come in handy in days leading to the test, for quick review of concepts, and during lunch breaks in office. Verbal and Combinations cards are really gems !!

On page 43 (Triangle 5) Answers.
Isn't the height of an equilateral triangle = "(side) * Square root of 3/2" instead of
Side x 3/2??

Thanks for the question - i just found a typo there in the name - should be Brian, not Brain.

I think it is correct on the slides... and it is = side*(sqrt(3))/2
not the one which you wrote here= "(side) * Square root of 3/2"
