The GMAT focuses mainly on testing your ability to execute--to examine a problem and produce a solution. Because understanding math concepts theoretically is one thing, and carrying out their execution is another, Barron's GMAT Math Workbook introduces fundamental mathematical concepts tested by the GMAT, and then presents a range of problems through which you can apply those concepts. First you will familiarize yourself with math principles, and then you'll bridge the gap between understanding basic concepts and solving specific GMAT questions. This book's comprehensive examples are designed to help you fully understand each concept before you proceed to self-practice. The extensive sample problems in each section allow you to test both your mastery of principles and your problem-solving skill.
While none of the concepts that you will encounter on the GMAT is more challenging than those you learned in high school, you might find connecting the dots between concepts and solutions difficult at first. That's where Barron's GMAT Math Workbook proves especially helpful. It presents many explanations that help you establish a direct relationship between basic concepts and solution applications. Concepts presented in this book that are most likely to appear new to you are those relating specifically to the GMAT's structure. Thus, using this manual to study for the exam becomes more a matter of refreshing your memory than learning new concepts.
Ultimately, your success is the product of an effective GMAT preparation strategy. Barron's GMAT Math Workbook presents a strategic approach to two different aspects of the GMAT: developing a preparatory learning system well before taking the exam, and then mastering problem-solving strategies to be implemented on test day.
This book's subject explanations are presented with the busy test taker in mind and are organized by bullet points. Reminder boxes included throughout the book will help you solve many problems that don't require the aid of a calculator. As a graduate school applicant, you will find Barron's GMAT Math Workbook a valuable and practical guide to achieving a life-changing goal. With guidance from this book, it's now up to you to take control and accomplish that objective.
