olchik: (I'll be damned)
[personal profile] olchik
I took a practice GMAT test this morning (math component).  I haven't practiced or done math in a while and it was rough.  I really felt like I've forgotten math.

During my lunch break I went to return something at Land's End.  The lady there told me I will be getting back $16.18 per shirt and pulled out her calculator to see how much I'd be getting for 2.  I immediately told her it would be $32.36.  She looked at me and asked me if I was a math whiz.

Nothing like retail therapy to soothe the frayed nerves of a former math lover.

Don't worry. It is very simple actually. You just need to spend a little bit of time with some preparation book and you will be good.

Тьфу, неправильно вышло: получается, что с языком проблемы будут :)

Я имела в виду, что даже я с их математикой разобралась. А я, мягко говоря, не любитель математики.

Back in the day I took a prep course (I generally do better in an organized setting), which helped a lot!

This was an idea my husband had and it might be a good one, I just need to research it some more. He sent me some practice questions this morning and I also did a practice test.

Good story! Ha, now you can keep buying things and then returning them just to practice your math. :)

GMAT math is somewhat different. You don't need to know much math, but you need to know what kind of applications are important in the test.

Хорошее дело, я когда готовился в библиотеке книги брал, покупать нет смисла.
