The link for Math prep (logic, Venn diagrams, number properties, algebra, geometry, probability, formula sheet) has been updated into two new links (one for geometry and one for algebra).

Does anyone know if this is the same information still (was looking for the formula sheet)?

I updated the link to one we have internally: geometry-formulas-practice-sheet-81427.html
That one is for Geometry only though.

Thank you forall this resoures.
It's a great collection to get started.
I am having a little problem here. I hope somebody can help me. I know what I am gonna say now might sound funny or foolish to many of you here.
I am planning to start my gmat preparation soon, and planning to give the test in 3-4months. I have given verbal test and I am ok with it ,means I know i'll get better with practise and undestanding my weeknesses, but its different with quant.
I am very nervous to actually give a diagnostic test to understand where I stand, I haven't done maths since last 8yrs, I'll not say I am bad at it but yes I am not too confident about it rgt now? the possiblity of me doing very bad is making me nervous because I think it will affect my confidence and hopes, like I think i'll get more undermined by the bad score.
I might sound confusing but I hope you understand what I am trying to say.
please help me out by some suggestions and ways to cope up and to help me get started with my preparation. I need to work very hard in Quant.

Thanks for the tips, I'm just about to start my gmat prep and came across gmatclub via an amazon review, and boy am I glad to have checked the site out. It seems very comprehensive, and the diagnostic test was excellent, remembered a lot of simple things that i have completely forgotten. Thanks again, and I hope to use the resources here.

I was reading through the various math posts and saw a post on items that should be committed to memory. Unfortunately I can't seem to find it. Can some one post a master list of all items, formulas or anything else that should be simply committed to memory for instant recall. Thanks.
