hello everyone,

Im from chennai and will be applying to ISB this year.

Here is my profile:

Xth - 91%

XIIth - 94%

BE - 76% ( university of madras)

Indian IT female.

GMAT - 740(Q-49, V-42) AWA -5

work experience - 6.10 yrs by april 2009 in a reputed IT company.

Good progression in the company. Im now a project lead of a team of 7.

onsite experience - 1 yr in US and 3 months in Belgium.

extra curriculars - currently learning french and will be taking up level 1 exam

in the next two months.

I have been a volunteer in an initiative from our company to help find donors

for a institution of mentally disabled children in chennai. I have been doing this for the past 1 year.

Can someone evaluate my profile and let me know in which areas of the application should I concentrate on. I understand that the extra curriculars part is a bit shaky as i have nothing substantial to show during college days. How can I compensate for this?

Hi in210223,

Practice is the key to verbal. You still have 2 months time. I found the verbal concepts in Kaplan to be very useful. Also, in OG and all other tests that u mentioned, read the explanation provided and analyse each question that you went wrong with. This is more important than completing the tests themselves. Right now try to take a set of questions and solve them without timing the test. This will improve your accuracy and give you confidence. For SC try to get familiar with each of the regular GMAT error types, and then with practice, you should be able to identify the error in the original sentence itself. Initially I was faring very badly in SC, but after practicing for 2 months, I found that I was able to identify the error even before looking at the options, and then I would match the options provided with the correct sentence that I had in mind.

All the best .

hey bro dnt hav the explnations.thats y had put it up in the forum.

neways here is another ques

1.In assessing the problems faced by rural migrant workers, the question of whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant.

(A) In assessing the problems faced by rural migrant workers, the question of whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant.

(B) The question of whether the rural migrant worker is better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant in assessing the problems that they face.

(C) A question that is irrelevant in assessing the problems that rural migrant workers face is whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor.

(D) In an assessment of the problems faced by rural migrant workers, the question of whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant.

(E) The question of whether the rural migrant worker is better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant in an assessment of the problems that they face.

I think the answer is D.

In options B & E, 'they face' is ambiguous. It is not clear as to who is facing the problems.

Option C suggests that there are many questions and this is the only question that is irrelevant. This is not mentioned in the original sentance.

option A: 'In assessing the problems' is not idiomatic

if the angle between the two radii is x and radius is r

area of triangle is .5 r^2 sinx

hence it is max when x = 90

assuming radius = 1 answer is 1/2

I missed to add the info that the radius of the circle is 1. This is a question that I got in GMATprep
