Could you pls post those 150 tough questions?

I'll post the 150 tough questions sometime this weekend or next week (depending on work schedule). I only have them in a hodgepodge of PDFs, hand written notes, and print outs so they'll take some time to transcribe. Some of the tough questions are murderous.

oh wow. math part is amazing. i am studying manhattan gmat right now and you did a great job by pulling the most important strategies.

I was wondering if you could make a note on your VIC strategy by writing that we shouldn't be picking 1 and 2 as our numbers. Sometimes answers come up wrong.

+1 kudos

I just updated the Quant notes. One of these days, when I figure out how to write formulas more nicely in Word, I'll try to format the mathematical better.

Slingshot this great stuff man,...thank u very much

one doubt - ur notes say that

"the sum of factors of a # is odd, it is not necessarily a perfect square" should be changed to

but I tried the reasoning below

sum of factors of number is of form (a+1)(b+1)(c+1)
if (a+1)(b+1)(c+1)....... = odd
i mean each one must be odd
i.e a+1 is odd
b+1 is odd

so that means
a is even
b is even

which means P1^ a* P2^ b P3^c ......is perfect square?

Whats the flaw here

Nice guide. Looking through it I noticed the following:

Quote:
Special Properties of Exponential Expressions Involving 1 or 0
1^n = 1
x^0 = 1 (Exception: 0^0 = Undefined)
0^n = 0 (Exception 0^0 = Undefined)

Should the exception for 0^n read "0^n is undefined when n is less than or equal to zero)? I would think 0^-1 = 1/0 = undefined (can't divide by zero)

I tried googling but couldn't find an answer.

Yes, 0^x is undefined when x is negative, not that a real GMAT question would ever allow for that possibility.
