I acquired recently Official Quantitative guide book and access to its online version on efficient learning by Wiley.
What irritates me is that they mix signs which makes it non-understandable
Like question 201
If x is a positive integer, what is the value of x?
It should be
(1) x2=x^1/2
2) n/x= n n does not equal to 0

But it appears on screen 1) x 2 = х
2) n x = n
How should I understand it?

I had the same issue on some questions. I emailed them screenshots of the problems and they said they'd look into it, but never got back to me or fixed the problem.

i saw same issue with lot of quant questions while using Wiley's gmat online portal.
Reported the issue and they replied that they will look into it. No update yet.

In mean time, i keep book/pdf open on side while solving the questions online and refer to questions from book ( as they provide question number on top). Its just a little time consuming workaround.

PFA : screenshot of a sample question : for people to understand what we are talking about.

In my case, online via google chrome browser on my desktop and laptop.
See one printscreen - if you read it carefully, it does not make sense, because of a view bug

Via internet browser - but it reads like an application - app.efficientlearning.com
I wonder if they have the same issue with whole official GMAT edition

Oh. That is indeed horrible. This does not seem such a hard thing to fix either.... and this was supposed to be an upgrade for the OG
Ugh :(

Hurrah! Got a response from the customer care:
Thank you for your email. This is a known issue and it should be corrected within the week. Just as soon as its been corrected it will automatically correct in your course.

Not bad, unless you scheduled for exam in 1-2 weeks.... Anyway, at least they're aware and working on it..

9 days passed and this issue has not been corrected yet, which is a truly frustrating experience, particularly right before the exam!
What I also liked Wiley, they never actually apologized for the inconvenience they caused. Well cheap cost, cheap service....

For IE absolutely the same story... Firefox - honestly didn’t try and they did not advise me to do so...
what bothers me - they know about this issue and still did no fix it
