Hey Guys,

Many of you may be unaware of this information and many of you may be aware..


But anyways thought this is the right place for it as this is where the prospective people would start off with their quest for the new IR section.


These are the official 2011 GMAC Test Prep Summit (held at NYC) handouts... I think I found these somewhere on the internet, or maybe GMAT Club itself..

I'll add in the source reference if I stumble upon it again (or if some one is nice enough to point it to me)..

So...that's it!....check out the attachments...

Good sources...kudos!!!

I am in love with the IR section. They ape the 'MBA' type reports that aspirants would find in b-schools. It's like a taste of the real thing. However, concepts like regression lines would be something test takers will have to familiarize themselves with.

Regards,

Shouvik.

Thanks Shouvik.

Why dont you share what you know about IR....

To start with what are regression lines? Tell me about it.

Based on what I read on Mba.com nothing says about regression line. please tell us about this argument but with concrete link example and so on.

Otherwise would be concerned...

By the way I 'd have another question: is true that if you take 0 on IR this affects your quant score ?? is possible??

thanks

I think Regression line deals with just a type of questions to be asked in IR. May not be in the info available on mba.com

Also, per my information, IR scores are NOT going to be counted towards the Verbal, Quants, or the total GMAT score. It would be shared seperately (kinda like the AWA scores).

Any takers to certify the info?? Mods??

IR will be separately scored from the rest of the GMAT, so it will not count towards your overall 200-800 score.

The GMAT Integrated Reasoning section is a new section on the GMAT, and will be introduced on June 5th, 2012. Instead of making test takers suffer even longer, GMAC, the writers of the GMAT, have decided to replace one of the essays with the Integrated Reasoning section.

As the section implies there is a fair amount of reasoning involved – most will be quant-based, though there will be some verbal-based reasoning as well.

Here are some important points to keep in mind:

* You must answer a question before moving on
* Once you answer a question you can’t go back to it
* A graph or prompt may have multiple questions
* You will have 30 minutes to do 12 questions
* There will be an onscreen calculator for this new section (but not for the rest of the exam!)

For more check: the-next-generation-gmat-gmat-integrated-reasoning-130224.html

Hope it helps.

charlemagne, carcass and other friends,

Apologies for replying late.

Ok, I got to see a question on 'regression' here: http://www.mba.com/the-gmat/nex-gen/sam ... 1?next=yes

But don't worry. The questions are very simple. I felt many test takers might be confused to see the term and might find the question beyond their reach.

The questions speaks of a 'regression line', which by definition is termed as regression of y on x - the equation representing the relation between selected values of one variable (x) and observed values of the other (y); it permits the prediction of the most probable values of y

In the question, there is a scatter plot. We have values of y for values of x. The regression line tries to determine a pattern here, so that I can predict a value of y for a given value of x. That's it.

The question only asks how water and air temperature are correlated. The upward sloping line suggests that they are positively correlated.

Do ask again if you feel it's not clear. I'd be glad to help.

Regards,

Shouvik.

Thanks edvento..that really did help..


So were you able to uncover any more kind of questions for IR?

And is there a set of say 4-5 question types that cover all the possibilities?

Hi charlemagne and friends,

The mba.com site gives us an outline of the question types.

The Graphics Interpretation, Two-part Analysis and Table Analysis are just extensions of the regular data interpretation that we already have in the quant section. The only difference is that instead of focussing on more calculations, these questions will ask you to infer if certain facts are true or false. The calculation bit is minimal.

The Multi-Source Reasoning is something I give kudos to the GMAC for. They are excellent questions. I personally love them. This part is actually gives such a nice idea what managers do and what it is like to take decisions.

Let me research a little bit more on these question types. I'll also try to post more practice problems and related sources. The GMAT has just become more interesting. So much better than a computer judging your essay writing skills. No pun intended here.

Regards,

Shouvik.

Friends,

I have studied all the 50 IR questions released by the GMAC and have come up with a preliminary analysis as promised to you all. Check out my blog post for this.
http://www.edvento.com/blog/6-tips-to-a ... n-the-gmat

I'll dig deeper into the individual question types and post whenever I find something interesting.
