I'm planning on taking the EA and have studied all associated GMAT material to help me prep. However, while I'm highly efficient at V/Q, I am struggling with IR and consistently score around 40% on the EA prep material provided by GMAC. It just doesn't "click" like V/Q. Can anyone help point me in the right direction or know any good videos on how to improve? I've read articles on some strategies but they seem redundant. Thanks!

Hi Kalubalu,

Integrated Reasoning involves many of the same skills and Tactics that you would use on Critical Reasoning and Reading Comp in the Verbal section - so we should consider how you're performing in those areas.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What specific study materials have you used so far?
3) Have you taken any practice EAs or the Official EA yet? How did you score on EACH of those Exams (including the Quant, Verbal and IR Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the EA?
6) What application deadlines are you currently facing?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Studied about a two and a half months for roughly 10-15 hrs weekly and have done target test prep for quant and magoosh verbal. Feel pretty good about those areas. I also have the EA prep from GMAC and GMAT OG which I'm going through.

The overall score would be around 160 and planning on taking it early to mid-Dec with no app deadlines until March but want to get this out of the way so i can focus on essays and application. Any advice would help.

Hi Kalubalu,

Based on your last post, I assume that you have not taken any FULL-LENGTH practice EA Exams yet. While your results from individual questions and quizzes can help you to hone your skills, we still need to see how you perform under testing conditions to properly asses everything that you need to work on. Once you have that practice result, then I'll be happy to review it for you.
