    I got this as part of my preparation for GMAT After buying a GMAT study guide from another provider I realized I can't even do long division manual subtraction prime factorization So if you are like me and need to start off with something very basic then start here That being said it is not just your basic 4th5th grade math workbook Every chapter starts off with the basics then moves on to how that concept will be used in GMAT and builds up from there If you are weak in Math or very very calculator dependent then start here then move on to GMAT study guides like Kaplan or official GMAT guide I now force myself to do long division in my head or figure out how much a dress will cost me if its 40% off without the help of a calculator

    I am a returning student and have not had to use the basic math needed for the GMAT in over 20 years I used the Kaplan GMAT prep but just could not recall the basics I'd look at the problem and know what they wanted me to do but couldn't do the first step I didn't do well on my first test as a result I went through this book in less than a week and I did every problem in the book I didn't study anything else between the first exam and the second exam My score jumped 140 points Take a practice exam If you need to refresh the basics get this book If you are fine with the basic skills but need to polish for the GMAT this isn't for you Get a advanced book

    This is a really efficient text that enables one to build their core competency in the foundational elements of GMAT Math1 Brings you behind the theory necessary to understand how the creators of the GMAT construct their uestions2 Starts you at the very basic elements involved with GMAT Math uestions3 Provides numerous sample uestions to uizz you on what you've read and practiced through sample uestionsI'm very happy with this purchase The GMAT is challenging and for someone who didn't have the high school schooling necessary to engage with the GMAT initiatlly the Foundations of GMAT Math text has helped tremendously

    While this book is very useful for studying the basics for the GMAT this book does NOT come with an online serial code The description says with your purchase you receive online content but you don’t receive that without the serial code that isn’t included

    Solid book I went thru it twice uicker the 2nd time of course to make sure I had my fundamentals down If you are thorough or have not studied in a while or just do not have the basic math background then this book is good for you I am a normal American who did Calculus 3 in college but was still shaky on some fundamentals so it is helpful I do not know what to say if you have time constraints though maybe another condensed resource OG would better suit your needs etc Still I would definitely recommend

    This review is for kindle edition Content of the book is good but it simply doesn’t display well on the kindle or in kindle apps on iOS For instance exponents and integers tend to be indistinguishable And the way problems are laid out and diagrammed they almost always get split between pages or cut off along the edge I also find myself wanting to write in the margins and solve the end of section uestions in the book but this is not possible on kindle so either pad and paper or flipping back and forth between a notes app is reuired If I had a do over I’d trade the kindle version for a physical book in a heartbeat

    The uality and content of the book seems great for my purposes namely two months to study for the GMAT when I haven't taken a math class in ten years However the Kindle edition is pretty much useless Even if you enlarge the text and widen the page there are images that you can't zoom in on that contain important euations see screenshot of Kindle PC app And in a math book that's kind of a deal breaker Looking forward to receiving my paperback edition of this wonderful book

    I normally doubt myself in Math but the foundations is so so easy that anyone should be able to understand this material with a decent Math experience with Algebra I would recommend the Advanced version because that is perfectharder and inspiring in terms of how to come with solutions

    While this book is missing some math needed for the GMAT it is perfect to get you back in the swing of things if you are rusty or been away from it for a while The website access is great and I enjoyed learning from this book You will need to do math after this book but it's a great start especially when the GMAT is based on strategy knowing rules and how to identify them fast You can only get this from truly understanding the basics I am glad I spent the time on this book than pulling my hair out and wasting time in advanced books too soon


  10. says:

    Overall this is an extremely good resource for reviewing the GMAT uant methods which will end up tripping you up even if you know some of the harder concepts If like me you needed background and importantly PRACTICE in applying these methods then this book will be very helpful for you as it is full of exercises to bring the point homeI have been working with the kindle version in which the formatting from page to page can be awkward and also some powers look like normal numbers though most of them seem fine This has not taken away from the value I take from the book but it's annoying so be prepared Also using the kindle version when you look at the answer sheets for exercises use the location feature to get back to the uestion page as the scrolling becomes extremely tedious very uickly otherwise


  11. says:

    Great book Each chapter has uestions all the way through to test your knowledge with detailed answers and explanations at the end of each chapter as well as drills to test you at the end Their explanations are so good I've been able to work through these on my own If you've not done maths for a while or you're not as confident in your maths skills in your GMAT prep I'd highly recommend


  12. says:

    Fantastic book Been using others to prepare and this is by far the most usefulclear Highly recommend if like me you need to brush up on core maths skills before you can really make progress in the Math section of the GMAT


  13. says:

    It's a good book It certainly helps with all of the things we learnt at school but need to brush up on 4 star because I prefer the Kaplan Range I think they're slightly better but this book seemed to be the best option to recap on the foundations of maths
