Members,

(I'm not sure this topic is in the right place, forgive me if it isn't!)

I'm studying for the GMAT to get a score of >600 (necessary for Erasmus University Rotterdam). I've consulted this forum already to compose a study plan and bought the Manhatten GMAT guides to help me.

Currently I'm busy with fractions, decimals & percents. At the moment I'm struggling with "nasty" complicated fractions such as: $$(\frac{2w+4}{z^3+z}$$.
Both Guide 1 and Foundations of GMAT Math don't provide me with enough information to tackle these kind of problems.

What shall I do? Consult a Math professor already or do I have to wait while I finished studying all the guides?

Usually you don't need to tackle complicated fractions in GMAT questions. They are smokescreens to lure you into thinking that you are stuck but actually the logic behind the question would be quite simple. If you put up the question, we will be able to tell you what is required to be done in such cases.

Can you explain me how to solve the following inequality. When fractions are involved I am having a hard time to solve the problems:

$$3 | \frac{5x}{3} - 7 | < \frac{2x}{3} + 18$$
