To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
While this book is very useful for studying the basics for the GMAT, this book does NOT come with an online serial code. The description says with your purchase you receive online content, but you don’t receive that without the serial code that isn’t included.
I normally doubt myself in Math but the foundations is so so easy that anyone should be able to understand this material (with a decent Math experience with Algebra). I would recommend the Advanced version because that is perfect,harder and inspiring (in terms of how to come with solutions)
It doesn't load correctly on my kindle despite it clearly stating [Kindle edition] Really annoying trying to re-learn how to do equations when the equations don't even line up. Not a bit helpful. Useless.
I had bought the Manhattan GMAT set of strategy guides earlier. I went on their website to access their CAT. While I was there I created an account and saw a Basic Math Diagnostic. I took it, and the results led to a recommendation to take their Foundations of Math courses I and II. When I saw that just one online class alone would cost $99.00, I went and bought this book. When I bought this book, I scratched off the code at the back of the book and was given access to pre-recorded Foundations of Math I and II, along with several question banks that must have totaled to over 300 questions. I listened to each pre-recorded workshop--they were about 2 hours each mind you--and then went about answering the questions in the question bank. When I had finished answering all of the questions in the banks--a process that took me over two weeks-- I went to attempt a Manhattan GMAT syllabus that I had found online. That syllabus said to do the odd exercises at the end of a few chapters in this lovely book. The exercises completely stumped me! They bore no resemblance to any of the hundreds of question banks I saw online. So basically, I wasted two weeks of precious study time answering drills that have no connection to the "foundations" that I am supposed to be learning. This whole process has been very frustrating.
Brought the book online here. The book was great to refresh all the concepts. However, instead of 5 stars, it gets 2 stars because, the product is not new, though I paid for new. The access code was already used and could not be registered to access practice problems. Disappointed extremely
