Summary

The Fractions, Decimals, and Percents guide (1 of the 8 books in Manhattan GMAT's Preparation Guide series) provides a highly organized and structured approach to the variety of questions in this quantitative content area. Students are presented with ways to manipulate part-whole relationships and practice implementing strategic time-efficient shortcuts. The book offers a unique balance between two competing emphases: test-taking strategies and in-depth content understanding. Practice problem sets build specific foundational skills in each topic and include the most advanced content that many other prep books ignore. As the average GMAT score required to gain admission to top b-schools continues to rise, this guide provides test takers with the depth and volume of advanced material essential for succeeding on the GMAT's computer adaptive format. Book also includes online access to 6 full-length Simulated Practice GMAT Exams at Manhattan GMAT's website.

Author Biography

There are three features that we believe distinguish ManhattanGMAT from other GMAT preparation companies.Instructors: We feel that teaching excellence is the key to student success. We ensure that our Instructors are the very best in a number of ways: All Instructors must have scored a 99th percentile overall on the official GMAT (currently a 760+). They also must have prior teaching experience in order to be considered. All Instructors must undergo a rigorous audition process to be extended an offer ű historically, we accept approximately 1 in 5 applicants who meet the above standards. Instructors then undergo a 100+ hour training process before being allowed to see students. In order to attract and retain the best teachers, we pay $100/hour for all teaching assignments, plus bonuses. This is up to 4 times the industry standard, and the highest in the industry. Content-Based Curriculum: We believe that the best GMAT curriculum should provide students familiarity with the math, grammar, and analytical principles that the GMAT tests. Accordingly, we strive to re-teach students the 8th and 9th grade math tested on the GMAT as well as the grammar and logic that many students may never have studied. Other GMAT test prep programs on the market focus on teachable methods, such as ˘process of elimination÷ and "backsolving" techniques. Our GMAT course curriculum is different; it seeks to provide test takers of all levels with content mastery and an organized approach that builds skills for every question type on the exam, including the most advanced content that many other prep companies ignore. Focus: As our name implies we teach only one test: the GMAT. This means that all of our time, energy, and resources are spent developing strategies for the GMAT's unique content rather than for the generic standardized exam. Our specialized focus gives our students an edge that "all-in-one" test prep companies cannot provide.
