Sign up for our basic course to refresh your knowledge of mathematics.
Our face-to-face Basic GMAT course consists of two evening sessions. The course is a recapitulation of the basics of mathematics, which you need to achieve a good score on your GMAT test. Has it been a while since you had to use your mathematical skills? Are you insecure about your current knowledge? Our Basic course will help you out by recapitulating the theory and putting it into practice right away. Different topics will be discussed during these two sessions. This means that you can jump in when it suits you. We strongly advise our participants to at least keep two weeks between this course and the Quantitative course. This will give you sufficient time to practice with the basics and becoming an expert again before starting with the follow-up course.
Our GMAT course is built on our experience with teaching over 1500 students and professionals since 2009. The course consists of a balanced mix of theory, strategy, shortcuts and practicing GMAT questions. We particularly focus on nasty pitfalls and common mistakes. For each GMAT topic, we combine the theory with solving and discussing representative GMAT questions within 2 minutes.
We will discuss some theory about fractions, properties of numbers between -1 & 1 and odds & evens in session 1. In the remaining time we will practice a lot exercises about every subject, some of them will be easy but a few will be difficult too. In the GMAT-test there are questions about properties of numbers. In this course we will teach you some tricks to derive the properties of numbers that you need, like odds & evens, on the spot. Because we will practice a lot with fractions, the mathematics will get more easy, this will give you more time to focus on the tricks and pitfalls in the Quantative Course. The most important thing of this session is that you will practice a lot of exercises and many questions from everyone will be answered.
✓ Rules and properties of odds & evens
✓ Rules and properties of fractions
✓ Properties of numbers between -1 and 1
In basis session 2 we will discuss some theory about exponents, negatives & positives and equations, which we will alternate with a lot of exercises. It is very important to be able to calculate with exponents and negatives & positives. This will get more easy when you practise a lot, after the sessions you are ready to focus on the tricks and pitfalls of the GMAT-questions. In this session we will start with solving equations too. We will practice with equalities, which are linear but some of them are quadratic too. The most important thing of this session is that you will practice a lot of exercises and many questions from everyone will be answered.
