Error in Kaplan GMAT Premier 2011 Errata [#permalink]

I've noticed there's an error on page 323. It states the surface of an area is

Total surface area = areas of bases + LSA.

$$SA= 2(\pi)r^2 * 2(\pi)rh$$

$$SA= 2(\pi)r^2 + 2(\pi)rh$$

I went on the Kaplan publishing website to verify this error but realized 2011 edition is not yet posted. Did anyone else spot any more errors on this book by chance? I'm interested to know if anyone found anymore errors on this edition.

Thanks.

You are correct - indeed there is a typo (on page 324 it rewrites the formula correctly). It should be a "+" instead of "*"

P.S. I don't have a listing of their typos. I have sent a note to Kaplan representative.

I found another error (typo) in Kaplan Premier 2011 (page 375) in the "Picking Numbers" section in last but four line. The option B should be 7^(b+1) not 7^(b+7).

Can anyone confirm?

I have started going through the book a week back. I will try to find out as much typo/error as possible (!!) for my smooth GMAT preparation as well as others'.

Schawjibb - I agree. Choice B should be 7^b+1
