    I’m loving this GMAT eBook, especially since it’s kind of like listening to a friend tell you about the test and it’s very easy to understand. However, I don’t know if other people have the same issue, but I think some of the symbols are missing. For example, on page 66, the formula for the number of combinations has no symbols (for me). It’s just a series of boxes.

    But like I said, I’m not sure if anyone else is having this problem.

    Otherwise, this book is great! Thank you so much for posting it!

    CR practice question in ebook is not available. If we click on the question link, it says ‘We could not find the question you are looking for’. Could you please provide the correct link?

      Hi, Siddarth

      You can click on the “Download the eBook link” or the purple cover on the right– I would recommend using Google Chrome as your browser, and making sure that your Adobe software (or similar program) is updated as well.

      Does that work? Let me know!

      As for more GMAT/IR help, I’d recommend our IR eBook ( and signing up for Magoosh.

      I hope that helps! :)
