Does anyone have any suggestions on learning R&W. I've read MGMAT Word Translation and can ans the basic questions, but get stumped on questions beyond that. I come up with ans that are not even part of the ans choices

Any suggestions on how I can improve?

Good that I found your post, so you can be rest assured, you are going to get the best advice anyone could ever give, or receive. Eitherways, I am LEGENDARY.

Well, coming to our point. Rate and Work problems, the one and only thing is translating the words of the problems into equations or numbers or proportions. They are just as good as any other algebraic problems, like age calculations, percentages and interest calculations etc. If a man can complete a task in 7 days, his rate is 1/7, of course, I can complete some tasks at my work-place much faster and some tasks in the bedroom very very late!!!!! If my partner is equally adept, or perhaps much faster in the bedroom at say a rate of 1/5, our combined rate would be 1/7 + 1/5, it's reciprocal will be the number of days we both will take to finish it off. That, my friend, is the funda of the entire maze of rate and work problems.

All the very best and practise well. Like they say, have fun and multiply.
