interest or importance at all. It is only important
that Pearson choose the best person for the job; how
he does so is IRRELEVANT.35. (D) Pearson is seeking a Sales Director who can
achieve these two goals. Howeve33. (E) Nowhere in the passage are you told that RECENT
sales experience is necessary, just sales experience in
general. Therefore, a lack of such recent experience is
IRRELEVANT.34. (E) Nowhere are you told HOW Pearson chooses his new

candidates described, despite the fact that many more were
available for consideration. No specific reasons are
given for this action. Therefore, Pearson has ASSUMED
that these are the four best candidates, and is proceeding
on that assumption.cific candidate and thus is a MINOR FACTOR.31. (C) Since Mr. Frances is one of the candidates and
the notice is one specific factor about him, this is a
MINOR FACTOR, something considered but not critical.32. (D) Pearson has narrowed his choices to t29. (C) The statement discusses one specific
characteristic or qualification of one specific candidate
and therefore is a MINOR FACTOR.30. (C) This is similar to item 29. The reputation of
Ms. Rowe is one specific characteristic or factor of one

concerns only one of the candidates, it is a MINOR (rather
than a major) FACTOR.28. (B) Immediate availability is one of the three
criteria by which Pearson has been told to judge each
candidate. Therefore, this is a MAJOR FACTOR.ants the "best." Here, since the firm
specifically lays down guidelines as to the
qualifications, you know it must want the person who best
meets those qualifications.27. (C) This consideration is relevant because the
candidates must have unblemished remember that often (but not
always) considerations relating to the past are (E)
answers.25. (A) Increasing sales is an OBJECTIVE of the firm, as
stated in the first paragraph.26. (A) This is generally an OBJECTIVE in any situation;
everyone usually ws.23. (B) This is a MAJOR FACTOR, since it is a basic
standard by which each candidate for the position will
be judged.24. (E) The decision is which of four candidates to
hire; the number of candidates ORIGINALLY interviewed
is totally IRRELEVANT. Rt the question is broad, referring to the
"various" candidates, rather than to a specific one.22. (D) Since Mr. Garcia has not stated specifically that
he will continue working elsewhere, Pearson must ASSUME
Mr. Garcia is unwilling to quit the other job (A) This OBJECTIVE is clearly stated in the second
paragraph of the passage.21. (B) The number of years of experience is one of the
three major considerations Pearson was directed to take
into account, and thus is critical and a MAJOR FACTOR.

background information, the candidates' backgrounds are
IRRELEVANT to the decisionmaking process. Nowhere are
you told that one ethnic type, sex or age group is
preferable to another. Do not read more into the passage

Multiply the variables together: x*x squared = x cuyou have no idea what

know the number increase (you are given that, 180) and

estimate the division. Try not to take the time to do
every step in problems of this type.13. (B) You should be able to reason this out logically:
since radical 8 times radical 8 equals 8, 8 divided by
radical 8 must equal radical 8 (think of it as:
increase of 10.1; divide that by 23.9 to get
approximately 42%. If you were to do the same with the
other categories, you would see that their percent
increases are all substantially less than 42%. You
should be able to do the subtraction in your mind a In the other years, only two (1961) or three
(1962 and 1963) categories showed increases.
12. (A) To find the percent increase, take the number
increase and divide it by the original whole (what you
are increasing from). With Pop records, there was anly the Pop category had an increase in the
number of records sold every year. You may have
mistakenly chosen Rock; however, for two years, there
were an EQUAL number of Rock records sold.11. (D) In 1964, all four categories showed an increase
in sales.n front of the x, in this case, 3.
This leaves you with x = (8  4y) / 3.9. (C) Look at the Soul line of the graph under 1963 to
find that "8.9" records were sold; the "8.9" represents
the number of HUNDREDS of records sold. 8.9*100 = 890.10. (A) On6 OR +4.8. (B) To solve for a variable, isolate the variable;
get it alone on one side of the equation. Move the 4y
to the right, making the expression 3x = 8  4y. Since
you want to solve for x, divide both sides of the equation
through by what is i=7. (D) In order for the product of two numbers to be
zero, one or both of those numbers must be zero. To have
the first expression equal zero, x must equal 6. To
have the second expression equal zero, x must equal +4.
Therefore, x could be EITHER

simply add the exponents. x to the first plus x to the

Since you cannot add the dissimilar terms of x's and xy's,

$13.00 + $1.20 + $6.00 = $20.20.18. (B) There are 4 hours between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00

(n + 7), and (n + 8). The difference between the largest
and the smallest integers is (n + 8)  n, or 8. The
average of the integers is irrelevant.17. (A) There are 16 ounces in a pound, and 52 ouncesis 6:7, there
could be 6 men and 7 women. Since the ratio of bald men
to men with hair is 5:1, there could be 5 bald men and 1
man with hair. Therefore, the ratio of bald men to women
is 5:7.16. (D) Nine consecutive integers may be expressed as n,
(n milk or
soda; the remaining 12 must be the remaining 3/10. Your
equation is 12 = (3/10)x, where x is the number of people
at the party. Divide both sides by 3/10, that is, invert
and multiply: (12)*(10/3) = 40.15. (A) Since the ratio of men to women te that since sales have
DECREASED every year, you may automatically eliminate
answers (A) and (B).14. (B) Use the common denominator of 10 to add the
fractions: 5/10 of the people drink milk while 2/10
drink soda. Therefore, 7/10 of the people drink its perimeter is 4s. Divide 64 by 4 to
find that the side of the square is 16; square 16 to
get the area, 256.13. (C) Sales in 1973 were 2/3 of sales in 1972; sales in
1974 were 2/3 of sales in 1973. (2/3)*(2/3) = 4/9, which
is approximately 44%. Nototalangle
formula is (S  2)*(180 degrees), where S represents
the number of sides of the polygon. A ninesided figure
is a nonagon.12. (D) The perimeter of a figure is the sum of the
lengths of its outside lines; since a square has four
equal sides,*(4/3), cancel the 3 into the 120 to get
40*4 = 160.11. (D) Divide 1,260 by 180 to find the number of
triangles in the figure (since there are 180 degrees
in a triangle). 1,260/180 = 7; a figure with 7 interior
triangles must have 9 sides, because the rmand must have 120
books (since 120 is 50% more than 80). Therefore, 120 =
3/4 the number of books Armand originally had. 120 =
(3/4)x; solve for x. Divide both sides through by 3/4,
which is the same as multiplying both sides by 4/3. To
solve (120/1)a day. 24 * $32.40 =
$777.60. Add the costs: $1,260 + $777.60 =
$2,037.60.9. (C) Adding two negatives gives a negative
(e.g., 3 + 3 = 6). Adding two odd numbers results in
an even number (e.g., 5 + 5 = 10).10. (C) If the sister has 80 books, AP=8. (C) There are 28 days in February and 31 days in
March, for a total of 59 days. For 35 of those, the ad
costs $36.00 (36 words at $1.00 a word); 35 * $36.00 =
$1,260. For the remaining 24 days the ad runs at a 10%
discount, for a cost of $32.40

Opening her own firm in Washington, D.C. would
