So I am about half way through the book and want to provide some feedback.

The layout is really poor. I am constantly scratching my head trying to figure out what I am actually studying. I am using your youtube channel which clears up a few things but it seems like the entire book was never edited. For example, what is the IVY approach? I had to watch youtube videos and I still don't know exactly what it is. Also, your youtube PS videos talk a lot about "Axiom" translations for word problems. These are no where to be found in the book.

Chapter 2 says "oops, almost forgot..About PS questions". The chapter contains around 20 different problems with their solutions. Unlike the first chapter that had some explanations (I had to use your youtube channel to get on target with the Axiom translations), these are just simply problems and their solutions. Where are the explanations to the methods?

There are a ton of misspelled words, grammar errors, and confusing language. For example, (page 51, #35)

"The ratio of the numbers of sedans to trucks and to pick-ups cars sold in an automobile sales event was 5 to 4 to 2. If the total number of cars sold in the event was 55, how many more sedan cars were sold than the pick-up cars?"

This is confusing as hell. A sedan is a "car", a truck is a truck, and a "pick-up" is a pick-up truck. A better way to state this problem would have been to use cars, trucks, and vans, or three other clearly distinguishable items.

My objective here is not to come in and bash your book, but I really did expect better. The strategies seem sound but the presentation is confusing and poor. A new layout and spell check would do wonders.

I will reply again once I have completed the entire book.

Hi Dondarrion,

We also appreciate trying to grasp the contents with watching videos on Youtube, which proves your great interest in our approaches
.
Firstly, the book consists of 20% of PS and 80% of DS, which is DS based. Therefore, it doesn’t cover like Axiom, which is part of PS and introduces basics of IVY Approach. Due to limit of space, PS is briefly introduced. We are planning to publish a book based on PS soon. Please look forward to it.
Regarding your comment on Chapter 2, it might appear as there is no explanation. Since the conventional method of approach is inefficient, we omitted solutions with the conventional method. That’s why it only illustrates specific explanations of IVY approach.
In addition, this is the first English edition we published, which took us three times to revise it. Nonetheless, since you have found some errors mentioned above, we will again closely have a look into the book. If you find more, please let us know.

Lastly, we would like to hear from you again once you complete the book. We are certain that you will benefit from the book as it illustrates the method of Variable Approach, which is to overcome spending too much time, low confidence, lack of concentration and time management caused by the conventional method of DS.
Regardless, if you have anything more to add to the previous post regarding the book, please let us know via our email at info@mathrevolution.com

We will take your comments into consideration when we come up with a new edition or develop contents.

Thank you.

Sir ,

Is there a possibility that you can try putting up Kindle or downloadable edition of your MATH book on Amazon.com. As the book does not deliver up in my Country.

I guess this question was made intentionally like this to think critically and confuse the reader so that it will take more time and will probably lead to bad choice.I guess that this may be one of the tricky one that can come on GMAT.

Hi,

We are currently working on publishing an e-book, which might take more than a month.
If you cannot wait that long, please study the book by purchasing it.
Thank you.

Can somebody help me in solving this question

Each piglet in a litter is fed exactly one-half pound of a mixture of oats and barley. The ratio of the amount of barley to that of oats varies from piglet to piglet, but each piglet is fed some of both grains. How many piglets are there in the litter?

1) Piglet A was fed exactly 1/4 of the oats today.
2) Piglet A was fed exactly 1/6 of the barley today.

Dondarrion and Timebba,

Have you guys used the All in one 51 course of Math Revolution.It seems like MAX LEE is a beast in Maths. All the reviews on GC are exceptionally good with 5 star rating.Can you tell me how is the video course compared to Kaplan ,how is there Q&A service.And what about there teaching style is it good and comfortable are you able to relate to the style of MATH REVOLUTION All in one 51 course . Math revolution charges 300\$ for 6 month course and it looks like they are using a very different approach.
Please if anybody else is using up MR guide me up. As i have a doubt that they are giving only 40-50 hard GMAT questions.And rest are just ok

Hi TIMEBBA,

In fact, 90% of our students hit at least 49 and above.
In order to hit 50-51, you have to study and master CMT(Common Mistake Type 3 and 4).
4-5 questions of CMT are given on actual GMAT and if you got 1-2 questions wrong, you would receive 49.
If you got 0-1 questions wrong, you would hit 50-51.

One of our courses "Advanced" covers questions which determine 50-51, including CMT 3 and 4 with extra tips.
So, hitting 49 is not that difficult.

Additionally, below is an useful article featured in GMAT Club for your reference. This will be helpful for you.
