# How we teach GMAT

 How we teach critical reasoning
Let’s face it. Few college books teach you to think critically. Hence, essential skills of reasoning have to be mastered now for GMAT CR success. This is precisely why our course is designed with an introductory module on basics of logic theory carefully illustrated with arguments as they appear in GMAT. Elements of logic theory comprise inductive and deductive arguments, methods of argument analysis and evaluation, common logical fallacies.

In our interactives we’ll teach you, step by step, how to analyze issues, reason logically, and argue effectively. Our approaches to the 15 different types of CR questions - the first ever exhaustive listing - will ready you for the real test. The specific skills you acquire are:

 breaking down argument into its parts, to see what conclusion is drawn and how it is supported recognizing the line of reasoning employed in an argument checking logical validity of claims offering counter arguments using relevant hypothetical data supplying additional information drawing inference from the argument identifying logically similar arguments defining relationship between arguments evaluating a given argument for consistency
 How we teach sentence correction

GMAT SC tests both correctness and effectiveness of expression. A thorough survey of all rules that constitute standard sentence formation constitutes the first module of SC course.

An exhaustive list of idioms tested on the GMAT is discussed with illustrative sentences.

Clear distinction between awkward vs effective, clear vs ambiguous, wordy vs concise etc in the context of real GMAT questions will give you test confidence.

The most common GMAT SC errors- 25 error types- are discussed with multiple illustrations, and practised on hundreds of multiple choice questions. Notes and drills ensure review of rules.

 A partial list of SC errors. » Misplaced modifier » Wordiness » Un-idiomatic construction » Conditionals » Tense inconsistency » Unclear use of 'which' » countable vs non-countable nouns » Illogical comparison » Lack of clear subject » Incomplete comparison » Faulty diction » Meaning conformity

GMAT passages are mostly abstract, drawn from varied sources- sciences, history, art, philosophy, literary criticism. The questions require you to read critically. We teach you critical reading dynamics. That is

 Drawing inferences from the passage Distinguishing between topic and the emotional content of a passage Recognising the tone of a passage, attitude of the author Identifying the organisation and structure of the passage Extensive passage analysis and discussion will empower you to read GMAT passages critically. Follow up reading practice ensures that you practice all types of passages and questions that appear in the exam.

 How we teach math problem solving

The questions you get in the quantitative section of the GMAT, are drawn from arithmetic, algebra, geometry and statistics. We teach you math in 3 stages.

Stage 1 of your preparation will involve thorough review of elementary math concepts

Stage 2 involves application of concepts to problems in quantitative setting

Stage 3 involves quantitative reasoning – strategies for data sufficiency, short cuts, approaches to problem solving such as

 problem conversion and simplification working with answer option verifying adequacy of data estimating ranges of values which can satisfy the given relationship Extensive practise problems and follow up tests ensure that your speed and accuracy are maximum.
 How we teach integrated reasoning
GMAT IR tests your ability to analyse, synthesise, compare, contrast, infer from, integrate and judge data presented in multiple formats such as verbal texts, graphs, tables and charts.

IR tests both your numerical ability and logical skills. Your math and reasoning skills learnt in the other sections of the test will help you in this section.

We teach you how to interpret graphs, sort tabular data, draw conclusions by integrating data from multiple sources, and make decisions .

Extensive practise of IR questions will prepare you for the test.
