For the GMAT, the 0^0 is not defined !

So, it's neither 0^0 = 0 nor 0^0=1...

U could have a look on this long discussion : http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=35079&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

He he he ... Actually, inside the Kaplan math part.... It is stated that 0^0 is not defined ... The ones, like me, who don't want to believe it need to close their eyes for the GMAT and admit it

Here's a more important question, has it ever been tested on the gmat?

Well... perhaps it's only comming from an imagined question of Yezz

More seriously, yes ... It could be, even if the odd is low
