Overview

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.


Special Features:

*Each of the 8 Guides covers 1 major topic in extensive depth, providing students with many more pages-per-topic than found in all in-one guides. Single-topic focus of each guide allows the student to purchase only those guides that pertain to his/her weaknesses.

*Purchase includes 6 Full-Length Computer Adaptive Online Practice GMAT Exams and Bonus Fractions, Decimals, & Percents Online Question Bank developed exclusively by Manhattan GMAT. Your book includes a unique access code that enables you to access these online resources.

*Cleanly-presented strategies, problems sets, and explanations with sidebars that highlight key concepts; no need to wade throughcramped pages in small typeface.

*Each chapter builds comprehensive content understanding in the given topic area by providing rules, strategies and in-depth examples of how the GMAT tests a given topic and how you can respond accurately and quickly. Each chapter is followed by 15 challenging practice problems, progressively increasing in difficulty and designed to increase your ability from novice to expert in the given topic. Answers with comprehensive explanations follow each problem set.

*A special chapter provides specific strategies for attacking GMAT Data Sufficiency Problems that involve the use of Fractions, Decimals, & Percents. Data Sufficiency problems are uniquely challenging problems that account for more than one-third of the quantitative problems you will see on the GMAT.

*After mastering all the Fraction, Decimal, & Percent topics and completing Manhattan GMAT's comprehensive problem sets, you can test your knowledge on Fraction, Decimal, & Percent problems that have appeared on past GMAT exams. These problems are contained in The Official Guides For GMAT Review (sold separately), published by GMAC, the organization that administers the GMAT. Manhattan GMAT has categorized all the problems in The Official Guides by topic and the comprehensive list of categorized Fraction, Decimal, & Percent problems appears in the back of the Fraction, Decimal, & Percent Strategy Guide.
