Every other day we'll be finding discussions of interesting and tricky questions from previous years.
We will be finding 5-10 Reading Comprehension passages every day based on Most Common Passage & Question types tested on the GMAT:

  • Short Passage – 200-250 words
  • Long Passage – 350-450 words
  • Natural Sciences - Biology, Physics, Evolution, Classification of living beings, etc.
  • Physical Sciences - Health care, Medical research, Bio Chemistry, Astronomy, Cosmology, Technology, etc.
  • Abstract Sciences - Logic, Philosophy, Psychology, Intelligence Levels, Aptitudes, Child Bearing and Rearing, etc.
  • Social Sciences - History, Politics, Economics, Sociology, etc.
  • Law - Legal History, International Law, Human rights, Legal Theory, Famous legal cases, etc.
  • Humanities - Classic and Contemporary Art, Literature, Films, Music, etc.
  • Business and Economics

Study those hand-picked tough and tricky questions which have not been discussed for at least a year or two (you may have missed them otherwise) and review replies and tips from our expert team and prominent members**.

**Combined Effort by Gmatclub moderators and experts.
