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:
