It is not uncommon to see a GMAT students vociferously justify their answer choice in the Critical Reasoning section – when, of course, their choice is incorrect.

This happens much more frequently in the Critical Reasoning section of the GMAT, than in any other section.

And one of the primary reasons for that is assumptions.

When we are reading a short passage packed with information, it is easy to start making assumptions.

While some of these assumptions are pertinent, others shift the scope.

This shift in scope often leads us to the ‘logically correct’ answer choice which is actually wrong.

So how do you avoid making assumptions?

How do you stay within scope?

How do you avoid falling into traps that the test makers lay for you?

Perhaps more so than for any other question type on the GMAT, preparing for Critical Reasoning questions involves developing  critical thinking skills—rather than rote practice.

Unfortunately, short of enrolling for a formal‘Critical Thinking’ course, there is no easy way to develop these skills from ground up.

This was till the ‘Essential Guide to GMAT Critical Reasoning’ came along.

This book will build your Critical Reasoning Skills from the ground up.

It will give you a deep background on how to think logically, how to identify faults in your thinking patterns, the role of logic in critical thinking & how to develop it, and much more…

The value of Critical Reasoning skills goes well beyond success on the GMAT. Studies have found a strong correlation between Critical Thinking skills and corporate success.

This eBook will help you not only to excel in the GMAT, but also lay strong foundations for your corporate success.

This eBook will build your Critical Reasoning skills from the ground up, enable you to identify your fault patterns, correct them & apply your improved skills to the GMAT Critical Reasoning Section.

Critical Reasoning on the GMAT consists of about 12 questions. These normally comprise a short passage with a question at the end of it.

This short passage can be an argument, a dialog or even an advertisement.

The question will typically test your understanding of the argument by asking you to either strengthen/weaken it, identify the core assumptions, draw an inference or identify the relationship between different parts.

To be able to do this in under two minutes, and with accuracy can be daunting task.

And this is where the ‘Essential Guide to GMAT Critical Reasoning’ comes in.
