Hello All,

I do understand the concept of probability but When i am doing the problem specially the 700 range one my accuracy drops like anything.

GMATNinjaTwo Bunuel chetan2u Could you please suggest something to improve it.

Also does Probability covers a Quite a lot portion of the Quant in case if I skip it please let me know the outcome beforehand.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Yet at the hundred and first blow it would split in two.
And I knew it was not that blow that did it, But all that had gone Before

Hi..

Probability is a must if you are aiming for 49-51 in Quant..
Can you leave the topic? Yes, but if you are doing well in Quant, you are most likely to come across few of them.
Should you leave the topic? No... If you are hard-pressed for time, may be but you still should know the basics.
Can you improve? Surely, it's all practice. Bunuel has given few links, these would be very helpful.
