GMAT Word Problems Fundamentals Problem Set: Excerpt

Among the many resources I've created for GMAT Preparation are (1800) practice quantitative problems. (You can see the full list by clicking here.) One of those sets focuses solely on beginner-to-intermediate word problems. Word problems present a unique challenge. Learning the math fundamentals isn't enough; you must decode the language of the question before doing any calculations at all.

My sets of problems are some of the most valuable, realistic question banks available on the GMAT-prep market. To get a better idea of what I'm offering, I am making available an excerpt of ten questions--5 Problem Solving and 5 Data Sufficiency, complete with answers and explanations--from the Word Problems: Fundamentals set.

Click here to view the excerpt. Like the problem sets themselves, it is a PDF file.
