Work problem is another common topic tested during GMAT . About 24 questions are asked from this topic. Work is a specific task assigned to one or more persons that are required to be completed in 'n' amount of time.
Here n is represented as days.
Suppose Jim works for N days then he can do 1/N of the work in 1 day
Suppose Tim work for M days then he can do 1/M of the work in 1 day
Now if Jim and Tim works together for 1 day then they can do ( 1/N + 1/M ) work in 1 day
So in 1 day then can do (M+N)/M*N
Now lets plug in some real numbers
N=10

"I have not reviewed many books for MBA Admission consulting companies but doing it now to give all applicants a brief idea on what the book covers. The book includes 31 top MBA programs  almost all the top schools you have heard or considering for your MBA application. Each chapter is categorized by US States where there is at least one top MBA program. So you have California and Massachusetts with the most number of MBA programs and several states with one top program (Washington, Minnesota, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Virginia, and Maryland) and other states with two to three MBA programs. The book focuses on four aspects of an MBA program  curriculum, cost, class profile and postMBA salary. For me, the breakdown of the cost and postMBA industry was useful to make my decision on selecting the top 5 programs for 201718. It is a fascinating read in an industry where consultants overprice for their expertise. I recently bought a 30page guide for $49.

In the book, the author uses parallel threads to demonstrate the history of the state and the rise of industries. Will make you think how schools thrive based on the policy set by the state. California's obsession with Technology has revolutionized how we do Business and changed postMBA trends. Many MBA applicants will be consulting or doing marketing for a Technology company. That is one key finding from the book. The latest development in AI, FinTech, and Automation is an additional context that I found valuable in the book.
