Hi GMATers

I came across this interesting article regarding logical fallacies which some of you might find helpful. It covers a lot of the technique that the GMAT uses to trick us. On a side note, she poses some real tough mathematical logic questions here too, for those of you in the Q50/51 bracket.

Marilyn vos Savant is supposed to be the smartest person alive, so if you can beat her you might just be able to join the 700 club ;)

Marilyn vos Savant is no doubt a bright lady, but I have long been skeptical of her "smartest person alive" claim --- that's more a clever marketing tag than a duly verified claim.

This article does look helpful --- it certainly couldn't hurt --- but I would say something a little more GMAT specific would be more helpful. Here are a couple of blogs:

http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-cr-paradox-questions/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/arguments- ... -the-gmat/

I hope that's helpful.

Mike :-)
