Day 26 - Math Workbook Word Problems
I noticed that Kaplan puts special emphasis on word problems found on the GMAT, more so than any other test prep book I've seen. In my opinion, these word problem strategies are probably not useful to native-English speakers who have encountered these types of problems throughout junior high and high school. Perhaps it has some value for foreigners though.
Like I've advised before in previous chapters, I recommend test prep folks to skim this chapter and go straight to the problems. You'll learn more by doing and reading the explanations.
I'm currently visiting my parents for a few days. I've been home for just a day, yet I feel like I've lost 25 IQ points. Why is it so hard to study here?
--What was that? Oh, coming mother...

RECAP OF DAY 26 INSIGHTS:
1. I beginning to suspect that this particular Kaplan book is not so useful in terms of developing new strategies.
