In the x<x^2 question, can we take x=1..?

You bet!
When we plug in x = 1, the answer to the target question is "No, x is NOT less than x^2"

Ok..thank you sir

Hello guys
I think there is a mistake in the exercise done at 3:30 on this video, when is said divided, he is actually doing subtraction.
Sorry to bother

Thanks for that, but "division" is correct here. 5 divided by 3 equals 1 with remainder 2.

Hi Brent,
I would like to ask based on your experience if I could take CAT each Week or it would not reflect any changes in my progress.

If you've already reviewed all of the GMAT content, then taking regular practice tests (CAT's) is a great idea. This will help build your test-taking skills AND help identify any remaining area(s) of weakness.

While CAREFULLY analyzing your practice tests, there are four main types of weakness to watch out for:
1. specific Quant skills/concepts (e.g., algebra, standard deviation, etc.)
2. specific Verbal skills/concepts (e.g., verb tenses, assumption CR questions, etc.)
3. test-taking skills (time management, endurance, anxiety etc.)
4. silly mistakes

For the first two weaknesses, the fix is pretty straightforward. Learn the concept/skill and find some practice questions to strengthen that weakness.

If your test-taking skills are holding you back, then you need to work on these. Be sure to review out time management video at http://www.gmatprepnow.com/module/general-gmat-strategies/video/1244

Finally, if silly mistakes are hurting your score, then it's important that you identify and categorize these mistakes so that, during tests, you can easily spot situations in which you're prone to making errors. I write about this and other strategies in the following article: http://www.gmatprepnow.com/articles/avoiding-silly-misteaks-gmat

Cheers,
Brent
