COMBINATION and PROBABILITY  references.If you have problems with combination and probability you can use this reference page to find information quickly. I guess my small contribution to the GMATclub community will help other people to crack 800 score. THEORY [ Combinatorics]  [ Probability] general: Wiki CombinationWiki Permutationalso: 7t10838.htmlpermutationcombinationscoverage30315.htmlpermutationsordermatters79661.html  how to distinguish Permutations from Combinations question collections: pcprobabilitydownload57156.html NOTES FROM WALKER #1. Comprob problems always have a few different solutions. Try to solve the problems in many ways, and that will give you selfreliance.#2. Use enumeration of possibilities for the problems with complex restrictions.#3. "How can I apply here \(C^n_k\) or \(P^n_k\)?"  is a wrong question.

Walker  awesome; simply awesome. Are you Walker as in Walker: Texas Ranger. Because if you are, a Chuck Norris reference comes to mind: "When Chuck Norris falls into water, he does not get wet. The water gets Chuck Norris."
Nice one man.
