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.

*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 (except Pemdas) 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 Number Properties. 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 Number Properties topics and completing Manhattan GMAT's comprehensive problem sets, you can test your knowledge on Number Properties 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.
