Verbal Strategy Tips


Sentence Correction is one of the three types of questions we will see in the Verbal section. In these questions, we will read a single sentence which contains an underlined portion, and which is followed by five answers. These answers may, at first glance, sometimes seem identical to the underlined portion and to each other, but are, in fact, all slightly different: four of them have a mistake, and only one of them is correct. These questions test our English language proficiency and our ability to identify mistakes in grammar, terminology and sentence construction.

Preparing for these types of question requires studying concepts such as the relationship between subjects and verbs or between nouns and their pronouns; the different forms and tenses of verbs; and modifiers and parallelism.

In each SC question, the first answer choice, (A), will always be identical to the underlined section in the question. Choosing it means - there is nothing wrong with the original sentence. All four other options are alternatives to the original phrasing, only one of which can be correct.

As with all verbal questions, time is of the essence - we have to identify what’s wrong and figure out what’s right, as quickly as possible.

Reading Comprehension is one of the three types of questions we will see in the Verbal section. In these types of questions, we will be presented with a short academic passage, two or three paragraphs long, and will be asked 3 or 4 consecutive questions about it. We should expect to see about 4 passages in each Verbal section, making for about 12-16 questions out of a total of 37.

These questions are the only ones on the GMAT which are not adaptive - once we get a passage, the questions that come with it are set and won’t change according to our performance. However, the passages themselves, as a whole, are adaptive - the ones you see will depend on how you are doing on the test up till that point.

So, what do we need in order to succeed in this type of question?

Three things are needed for success:

1) Quick reading

2) Speedy analysis

3) Time-saving problem-solving strategy

Critical Reasoning is one of the three types of questions we will see in the Verbal section. In this type of questions, we will read a single-paragraph passage in which some argument will be presented, and we’ll be asked a question about it.

These questions deal with one concept: how facts turn into conclusions. In other words, when we learn something new about the world, what is the basis for what we’ve learned? Is it only facts? Or are there assumptions as well? What could make us doubt this conclusion? What could strengthen it? The arguments we read always imply a certain causation - based on this evidence, x causes y - and the questions require us to assess this claim.
