1.0 What Is the GMAT ® Exam?

Th e Graduate Management Admission Test ® (GMAT ® ) is a standardized, three‐part test delivered in

English. Th e test was designed to help admissions officers evaluate how suitable individual applicants

are for their graduate business and management programs. It measures basic verbal, mathematical, and

analytical writing skills that a test‐taker has developed over a long period of time through education

and work.

Th e GMAT exam does not measure a person’s knowledge of specific fields of study. Graduate business

and management programs enroll people from many diff erent undergraduate and work backgrounds, so

rather than test your mastery of any particular subject area, the GMAT exam will assess your acquired

skills. Your GMAT score will give admissions officers a statistically reliable measure of how well you are

likely to perform academically in the core curriculum of a graduate business program.

Of course, there are many other qualifications that can help people succeed in business school and in

their careers—for instance, job experience, leadership ability, motivation, and interpersonal skills. Th e

GMAT exam does not gauge these qualities. Th at is why your GMAT score is intended to be used as

one standard admissions criterion among other, more subjective, criteria, such as admissions essays and

interviews.

1.1 Why Take the GMAT ® Exam?

GMAT scores are used by admissions officers in over 6,000 graduate business and management

programs worldwide. Schools that require prospective students to submit GMAT scores in the

application process are generally interested in admitting

the best‐qualified applicants for their programs, which

means that you may find a more beneficial learning

environment at schools that require GMAT scores as part

of your application.

Because the GMAT exam gauges skills that are important

to successful study of business and management at the

graduate level, your scores will give you a good indication

of how prepared you are to succeed academically in a

graduate management program; how well you do on

the test may also help you choose the business schools

to which you apply. Furthermore, the percentile table

you receive with your scores will tell you how your

performance on the test compares to the performance

of other test‐takers, giving you one way to gauge your

competition for admission to business school.

– If I don’t score in the 90th

percentile, I won’t get into any

school I choose.

F – Very few people get very high

scores.

Fewer than 50 of the more than 200,000

people taking the GMAT exam each year

get a perfect score of 800. Thus, while you

may be exceptionally capable, the odds

are against your achieving a perfect score.

Also, the GMAT exam is just one piece of

your application packet. Admissions offi cers

use GMAT scores in conjunction with

undergraduate records, application essays,

interviews, letters of recommendation, and

other information when deciding whom to

accept into their programs.

Arithmetic Operations on rational numbers

The sum of the three numbers in the horizontal

row is 37 + 38 + 15, or 90. The product of the

three numbers in the vertical column is 15xy.

Thus, 15xy = 90, or the value of xy = 6.

The correct answer is A.

- A certain population of bacteria doubles every

10 minutes. If the number of bacteria in the population

initially was 104, what was the number in the

population 1 hour later?

(A) 2(104)

(B) 6(104)

(C) (26)(104)

(D) (106)(104)

(E) (104)

6

Arithmetic Operations on rational numbers

If the population of bacteria doubles every

10 minutes, it doubles 6 times in one hour.

This doubling action can be expressed as

(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2) or 26

. Thus, if the initial

population is 104, the population will be (26)(104

)

after one hour.

The correct answer is C. - If the perimeter of a rectangular garden plot is 34 feet

and its area is 60 square feet, what is the length of

each of the longer sides?

(A) 5 ft

(B) 6 ft

(C) 10 ft

(D) 12 ft

(E) 15 ft

Geometry; Algebra Perimeter; Area;

Simultaneous equations

Letting x represent the length of the rectangular

garden and y represent the width of the garden in

the formulas for calculating perimeter and area,

the given information can be expressed as:

Perimeter = 2(length) + 2(width) 34 = 2x + 2y

or

17 = x + y

Area = (length)(width) 60 = xy

This reduces the problem to finding two numbers

whose sum is 17 and whose product is 60. It can

be seen by inspection that the two numbers are 5

and 12, so the length of each of the longer sides

of the garden is 12 ft.

It is also possible to solve x + y = 17 for y and

substitute the value of y = 17 − x in the equation

for the area and solve for x:
