We will test your knowledge (and speed) for every topic from addition to probability, including all of those annoying word problems involving mixtures, ages, rates, and geometry. To ace the GMAT, you will need to master quantitative word problems. This book will help you fill in the gaps and solve "killer" problems without breaking a sweat.
