If x, y, and z are integers and xy + z is an odd integer, is x an even integer?

The Answer is A or statement 1 is sufficient to answer the question.

Given, x*y + z = odd. This means, x*y = even, and z = odd. Also, in another case, x*y= odd, and z= even. This implies that, when x*y= even, either x is odd, and y is even; and when x*y= odd, both x and y are odd.

Now, from statement 1, x*y + x*z = even, can only imply that x is even, and z is odd. The other condition gives x is odd, but implies that z= even, which negates the condition that is given in the question. Hence, this statement 1 is individually sufficient to answer the question.

Again, from statement 2,  y + x*z = odd and from the question, we get if y = even, then x = odd. And, if y = odd, x is even. Hence, no definite answer can be found from the statements. Hence, statement 2 is not sufficient.

Hence, only statement 1 is not sufficient to answer the question. Or Option A.

Hi all,

I got 770(IR7, QA50, VA45) in my second GMAT attempt on 27/4/15. 

I joined Jamboree Regular classes only.

So My GMAT prep involved mostly the following material.

1. Official questions (Everything under the sun).

2. Jamboree material.

3. MGMAT (SC guide and test series only).

4. CR Powerscore Bible 

5. Explanations of only Official questions on online forums.

For my score,I'll give most of the credit only to Jamboree.

I think a good regular coaching class should be judged on following parameters.

1. Instructor :- I still remember the first day of my visit to the centre and after meeting the instructor my first statement to the counsellor was that I'll join Jamboree only if this guy teaches me. Though I had already done most of my research,it was one of the best decisions I ever made in such a short span of time ;). 

2. Study Material :- I firmly believe that GMAT can be cracked by practising only official questions or their replica. As a matter of fact, I found Jamboree material designed keeping only this philosophy in mind.

3. Environment of Centre -: Guys, We all have those moments during our prep when we are too lazy or distracted to focus on studies. During those moments, my feelings of contentment after self study sessions at the centre is just inexplicable.

Disclaimer :- GMAT is one of the most crucial decision of our career. So guys take whatever i said with a pinch of salt. Pay a visit to some centres in your city and take only an informed decision.

Hi Siddharth, hope you are well. You are looking at self-study or online classes hence would recommend GMAC Review and Barrons to study from. Please do take a Diagnostic GMAT first to see where you stand in the beginning and take things from there. Thank you

Hi @sidkhaddar You might want to consider some programs in EU with good focus on SCM. With good GMAT score and essays you may also want to consider specialised Masters programs in the US. However I dont want to distract you with several options. You seems to have a good profile and interesting experiences. So with a well rounded application, you definitely have chances of getting into top 50 global MBA programs. However you will have to decide whether you are keen to study abroad or in India. I hope you must be advancing well with your GMAT preparations. Stay focussed for next few weeks and once you are done, we can quickly discuss your options. All the best.

Journalist: Well-known businessman Arnold Bergeron has long been popular in the state, and he has often talked about running for governor, but he has never run. However, we have just learned that Bergeron has fulfilled the financial disclosure requirement for candidacy by submitting a detailed list of his current financial holdings to the election commission. So, it is very likely that Bergeron will be a candidate for governor this year.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most useful in evaluating the journalist's argument?

Thanks for the OP for starting this thread, this has been really helpful.

About the US MBAs the cost factor and the current recession has been a demotivating factor for me. This has made MBAs from Canada more impressive.
I would appreciate if somebody could shed more light into MBAs from Canada.
I am a Career switcher, looking towards the marketing domain with 3 years of IT experience and 1 year of Manufacturing exp. (yea i am already a career switcher..:D)
thanks.


Canadian MBAs are rising in reputation pretty fast. There are great schools like Rotman, Ivey etc that provide you with an excellent educational experience. although if cost factor is your major concern then you would have a very similar problem here.
As statistics show, the best jobs in canada are extremely competitive as the number of excellent opportunities is less in comparison to US (relatively speaking). So you need something other than pure numbers (score) to get a good job - good networks/contact, good recommendations, experience, etc. Also Canadian MBAs are not any less expensive. An MBA from canada could cost your around $60-$70 (US dollars) including living expenses. This is a very conservative estimate. So in sum, you are taking an equally expensive (may be slightly less) option with lesser opportunities than a US B-school.
If cost is a factor a European or Asian MBA would be a better option, due to its better ROI as most of them are less than 2yrs in length. But this is not without its own cons.. If you want to work in the states, then a US MBA would be the better option.

Edit: Oops forgot to mention one more thing.. For a career switcher, in my opinion, from a totally different Industry and Function a 2 year MBA would be a better option.

Two modes of argumentation have been used on behalf of women’s emancipation in Western societies. Arguments in what could be called the “relational” feminist tradition maintain the doctrine of “equality in difference,” or equity as distinct from equality. They posit that biological distinctions between the sexes result in a necessary sexual division of labor in the family and throughout society and that women’s procreative labor is currently undervalued by society, to the disadvantage of women. By contrast, the individualist feminist tradition emphasizes individual human rights and celebrates women’s quest for personal autonomy, while downplaying the importance of gender roles and minimizing discussion of childbearing and its attendant responsibilities.

Before the late nineteenth century, these views coexisted within the feminist movement, often within the writings of the same individual. Between 1890 and 1920, however, relational feminism, which had been the dominant strain in feminist thought, and which still predominates among European and non-Western feminists, lost ground in England and the United States. Because the concept of individual rights was already well established in the Anglo-Saxon legal and political tradition, individualist feminism came to predominate in English-speaking countries. At the same time, the goals of the two approaches began to seem increasingly irreconcilable. Individualist feminists began to advocate a totally gender-blind system with equal rights for all. Relational feminists, while agreeing that equal educational and economic opportunities outside the home should be available for all women, continued to emphasize women’s special contributions to society as homemakers and mothers; they demanded special treatment for women, including protective legislation for women workers, state-sponsored maternity benefits, and paid compensation for housework.

Relational arguments have a major pitfall: because they underline women’s physiological and psychological distinctiveness, they are often appropriated by political adversaries and used to endorse male privilege. But the individualist approach, by attacking gender roles, denying the significance of physiological difference, and demning existing familial institutions as hopelessly patriarchal, has often simply treated as irrelevant the family roles important to many women. If the individualist framework, with its claim for women’s autonomy, could be harmonized with the family-oriented concerns of relational feminists, a more fruitful model for contemporary feminist politics could emerge.


According to the passage, relational feminists and individualist feminists agree that

Hi @yaswant.ys! There are several interesting elements to your profile and a 730 GMAT backs it up well. It may increase your chance if you can score a 750+ , but if you do not feel the urge to retake GMAT, you may as well go ahead with 730. Use this time to take some interesting MOOCs. 

All the Best!

Hi @yaswant.ys , if you were scoring significantly better than 730 on your GMATPrep, then you might want to consider appearing in GMAT again; else don't bother at all. 730 is a great score. We have had numerous people with score below 700 getting calls from ISB, and your profile seems quite decent.

So, just focus now on getting the essays and the application just top class and out of the world. You have a good profile; let the application truly reflect that.
