In which manhattan book can I find concepts for (1) Permutations and Combinations and (2) Sets and Venn diagrams?

Also, what is the likelihood of getting P&C questions in the GMAT?

Thanks!

Hi
You can find Sets and Venn diagrams in Guide 3 of 5th edition and Permutations and Combinations in Guide 5 of 5th edition.
P&C questions may vary about 2-3 questions.
Hope it helps.

Veritas has an excellent P&C study guide. Do give it a shot if the Manhattan one does not do the job.

Hi jyotsnamahajan,

Permutations, Combinations and Overlapping Sets are all relatively rare categories on the GMAT. You'll probably see just one question of each on Test Day, although you could potentially see more based on how well you're performing (and the Experimental questions that you might receive). This is meant to say that none of those categories is worth too much of your time unless you're already doing well on the bigger categories (Algebra, Arithmetic, Data Sufficiency in general, etc.).

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi jyotsnamahajan,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. So, you ask a fantastic question. UNFORTUNATELY, it’s difficult to tell you the exact likelihood of seeing Permutations and Combinations questions on your GMAT. If we all knew the exact breakdown of topics to expect on any given GMAT, the test wouldn’t be such a challenge, right? Remember, part of the difficulty of the GMAT is the fact that so few quant questions are asked (only 31), but so many concepts can be tested. Thus, to be successful on the GMAT, you must know ANY quant topic that could be thrown your way on test day.

Feel free to reach out with further questions. Good luck!

Generally I have noticed that Probability/Combinatorics/overlapping sets questions appear 2-3 times each time I take the test
