Accidently quoted the wrong link.
Explanation: For a given condition to be true a and b both has to be negative so they are in the quadrant (-,+). For R(x,-y) to be in the (-,+), x and y has to be negative.
1) x is negative. Not enough
2) x and y either positive or negative, not enough.
both together, x and y both negative. so ans is D

Hey Guys,
I am new to GMAT and this club.. I have few questions about GMAT
- Does marking one wrong impact your score? If yes, how much ?
- Due to time crunch, I sometimes end up leaving last questions. Does it reduce the score ?
- In case of time crunch, is it recommended to blindly mark answers for last questions ? If yes, for how many questions?

Thanks in advance for your reply

Hello guys, I sincerely apologize in advance if my query turns out to be common knowledge and therefore stupid in your opinion but it has really been bothering me. It is related to the Official GMAT Focus Practice tests and their algorithm. I yesterday attempted the test 4 and today 3 after 2 months of preparation and am intending to give the exam in the next 4-5 days. I scored a 685 (96th) yesterday where I got 5 wrong in DI (98th), 3 in Verbal (96th) and 5 wrong in Quant (81st), however, today, I got 2 wrong in DI yet got a 96th, Verbal was the same and 3 wrong on verbal yet stayed at 81st and overall got a 775. So I am at a loss of words, how did my score drop despite a better performance? Please help me understand, will be really grateful.

WOW, I have been doing these chats for 10 years, and finally a new question :) you get extra points for that :)

In your "Education " section, you can show three things to make you stand out:

1. Academic excellence (Cum Lauda, top 5%, Dean’s list...)
2. Student involvement - (participated / founded the student X club that did X Z)
3. anything else that is interesting and unique (exchange, publication, help with admissions, alumni board)

nice question
The answer is - get a high score :)
but as this is one of the least interesting factors, I dont suggest investing in this (= get the minimal score, get a high GMAT score, that’s better)

if the GMAT is a required factor in your admissions, like in the Stanfrod MSx program, then, naturally, it "helps" to have a high score.
For example, if you come from an over represented background, and the avareg GMAT is 730 (~685 in the GMAT FE) and you score 755 in GMAT FW, that will help make you stand out.
Obviously, GMAT is just one factor, and at ARINGO we LOVE challenges :) and have had this year a 700 and a 710 who got admitted into Wharton, Harvard and Stanford (and a 670 that got admitted into Columbia and Yale:)

yes, if you mention their names, and what you leant from speaking to them, schools will see you have done your research and really want them
this adds a few points on "did his research"
Naturally, this is only one factor, and a very easy one, one that many other candidates will do...

I have a huge career gap and to offset the same can taking up a few certification courses aligned with our career goals or taking up a few volunteering jobs be of any help? In short, I need your valuable input on how a huge career gap can be addressed. As you know securing a decent job in the corporate world with a gap is not a piece of cake. So, please advise what’s your take on this.­ Thanks!

that is what we do at ARINGO :) Address gaps, emphasize other areas
This is very specific and beyond a little chat session...
So, if you are looking for dedicated 1on1 consulting, that specializes in overcoming gaps like a low GMAT/GPA or work experience,
Send me your CV, GMAT score, GPA , school wish list and any other info to Shimriw@ARINGO.com and we can take it from there

This really depends on the applicant, where they want to study, their strength of the applicant etc.
But if they send me their CV, GMAT score and school wish list (Shimriw@ARINGO.com) I can give them a chances estimation and then, accordingly, they can choose the number and which schools to apply to

I used to interview LBS candidates for 8 years!
I used to look for three things: Academics, professional experience and something else :) it can be hobbies, volunteering or just be interesting... as long as you have something "extra" you will be fine.
What is that? it changes from person to person...
happy to work with you on your application and find that "extra" together :) (buzz me on shimriw@ARINGO.com if you want to explore this further)
