Basically, the question asks how many 4 digit numbers (including those in the form 0XXX, 00XX, and 000X) have digits which add up to 5.

Think about the question this way: we know that there is a total of 5 to be spread among the 4 digits, we just have to determine the number of ways it can be spread. 

Let X represent a sum of 1, and | represent a separator between two digits. As a result, we will have 5 X's (digits add up to the 5), and 3 |'s (3 digit separators).

So, for example: XX|X|X|X = 2111 ||XXX|XX = 0032 etc. There are 8C3 ways to determine where to place the separators. Hence, the answer is 8C3 = 56.

Any suggestion...:)

I am guessing you are asking for the EEO of ISB. 730 is a good target to aim at. Experience shows that 720 in the mocks leads to a sub 700 score in the real GMAT. So be careful. Goes without saying that you will need to differentiate hard in your essays. Wish you all the best. Llewellyn DeSouza - Hash MBA Consulting.

Hi, 

With a score of 680 in gmat (Q48 V34 IR6 ) I am trying to understand a few things in order to decide whether I should go ahead with my application process for HEC Paris and ISB Hyderabad or I should take the exam again and try scoring a 700+.

My profile is as under: 

10th: 92.6%

12th: 89.6%

Graduation: 7.78 CGPA

Qualification: B.Tech. , Computer Engg from NIT Jaipur

Work-experience: 3+ years by the time September '16 fall batches start. Worked in tech consulting role with Deloitte and currently in Microsoft with a similar work profile.

GMAT: 680-730

Preferable domain: Marketing (brand management) / Strategy Consulting (IT)

Time is running out, so it would be great if someone can share real experiences that can help me take a decision? Thanks!

Dear All,

I am engineering graduate with around six years of work ex with largest Oil and Gas Domain Co. of India. I recently appeared for GMAT and was able to get 720. First of all kindly let me know if the profile is suitable for 1 year MBA programs, i mean is the experience and GMAT score enough to apply for ISB and IIM's. Secondly now i am moving to another country for an international stint but not in Oil and gas Domain any more as of now. Will the adcoms prefer my move to another nation for International Exposure which i was unable to gain in my last company.

Yes you can apply for the 1 year executive programs, most of them have a minimum of 5 years of experience. It would be great if you can add international exposure to your profile as that is one of the criteria's, specially in IIMA admissions.

If, in a tennis tournament, a match reaches a fifth-set tiebreak, the lower-ranked player always loses the tiebreak (and, therefore, the match). If Rafael, the second-ranked player, wins a tournament by beating Roger, the top ranked player, then the match must not have included a fifth-set tiebreak. Which of the following arguments most
closely mimics the reasoning used in the above argument?

I was a working IT Professional for 4 years, when I decided to go for an MBA. I chose Jamboree - Pune because of its small class size and a very good instructor (Rohit). I took the weekend batch as I had to work Mon - Fri. The classes were very focussed and informative. The instructor taught us to study in an effective manner, taught us to manage our time better and the long classes (3+ hours) ensured that we are able to maintain concentration for long periods (which really helps in last stages of GMAT). Also, the classes were very interesting and interactive. The jamboree material has more than enough questions to practice and hone your skills to avoid common mistakes. The regular assignments keep us focussed and we never loose touch with the goal of a 700 plus GMAT score. The instructor is always reachable in case you have any queries. Also, the admin staff is very helpful as well. In my second attempt I scored 740 in 2014. I also used Jamboree's guidance to help me select colleges based on my score and with my essays. I am joining Emory GBS with scholarship in 2015.

Two works published in 1984 demonstrate contrasting approaches to writing the history of United States women. Buel and Buel’s biography of Mary Fish (1736–1818) makes little effort to place her story in the context of recent historiography on women. Lebsock, meanwhile, attempts not only to write the history of women in one southern community, but also to redirect two decades of historiographical debate as to whether women gained or lost status in the nineteenth century as compared with the eighteenth century. Although both books offer the reader the opportunity to assess this controversy regarding women’s status, only Lebsock’s deals with it directly. She examines several different aspects of women’s status, helping to refine and resolve the issues. She concludes that while women gained autonomy in some areas, especially in the private sphere, they lost it in many aspects of the economic sphere. More importantly, she shows that the debate itself depends on frame of reference: in many respects, women lost power in relation to men, for example, as certain jobs (delivering babies, supervising schools) were taken over by men. Yet women also gained power in comparison with their previous status, owning a higher proportion of real estate, for example. In contrast, Buel and Buel’s biography provides ample raw material for questioning the myth, fostered by some historians, of a colonial golden age in the eighteenth century but does not give the reader much guidance in analyzing the controversy over women’s status.


The passage suggests that Lebsock believes that compared to nineteenth-century American women, eighteenth-century American women were

(A) in many respects less powerful in relation to men

(B) more likely to own real estate

(C) generally more economically independent

(D) more independent in conducting their private lives

(E) less likely to work as school superintendents
