Reasoning Section [#permalink] New post 16 Dec 2013, 06:15
I've been doing the mathematical part (which I struggled most with) for the past two month and actually realised I haven't done any of the reasoning or sentence-correcting. When I did practice tests however, I did improve my scores on both sections. I stud History of Art and have been doing a lot of reading for it. I was now wondering if the stuff I learn (eg argument building) will apply to the GMAT. One of the advices I got for studying the reasoning part was reading books & newspapers which is essentially what I've been doing when preparing for my normal university course exams. My question now once again is, how significant is this and will it contribute? If not, how much time should I put into this section before my exam (which is on the 22nd of january)

Thank you.

Hi herberty,

What you learned from your university studies (argument building) - will help in the sense that you know how to structure an argument. Many RC passages are arguments - and by understanding how they are structured, you will be able to read the passages that much faster. The logic in critical reasoning questions may also involve some of the skills that you may have learned from school.

Additionally, the first 30 minutes of your exam will involve writing a few paragraphs of response to an argument question.

So these are the areas of the test that you may have a slight leg up on. But you should never expect an automatic pass even with your training. Keep drilling yourself.

For the math section, you may find this link useful: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... -questions

Lastly, the IR section often mixes reasoning skills - so you'll see your background useful in this section as well.
