Hi all,

I have just received my ESR for first take. Aiming to improve my Verbal Score. However, I'm abit lost in matching the sub-categories of the report with the actual question types that are usually posted here on gmatclub, or those used in textbooks. I'd appreciate alot if someone could help me. I've listed it all down here so it's easier to match. You guys can match the number into each ESR sub-cat.

Also, for RC the categories on question bank is not really broad. If you guys have another way of categorizing topics feel free to chip in.

And last, if the SC and CR topics on questionbanks are too detailed, you could just use any other system to match. I'd be happy with any breakdown. This would really help me to focus my retake effort. Thank you so much in advance :heart

Hi dadihung,

Welcome to gmatclub!

I've found the following info regarding ESR: https://www.mba.com/mbas-and-business-m ... bal-skills

Critical Reasoning
Critical reasoning questions measure the reasoning skills you use when crafting or evaluating arguments, and formulating or evaluating a plan of action.

Analysis/Critique
Problems identified in this category test your ability to analyze the information given to you in the passage and carefully make reasoned judgments demonstrated by evaluating and breaking down an argument.

Construction/Plan

Problems identified in this category test your ability to use the information given in a passage to construct a plan of action for find the best logical solution.

Reading Comprehension
Reading comprehension questions measure your ability to understand, analyze, and apply information and concepts presented in written form.

Identify Inferred Ideas
These problems use statements that include the premise but do not state a conclusion; you are asked to draw a conclusion based on the provided information.

Identify Stated Ideas
These problems require you to to clearly understand the explicitly stated main idea and supporting ideas which in order to answer the question.

Return to top
Sentence Correction
Sentence correction questions test your English language proficiency and ability to express an idea clearly, concisely, and grammatically correct.

Grammar
Problems in this category assess your ability to identify the answer that will create a sentence which is grammatically and structurally sound. The resulting sentence will conform to all the rules of standard written English, e.g., noun-verb agreement, pronoun consistency, pronoun case, and verb tense sequence.

Communication
Problems in this category asses your ability to identify the answer that will create an effective sentence which expresses an idea or relationship clearly and concisely, as well as grammatically. The test taker must be able to recognize whether the words are well chosen, accurate, and suitable for the context and does not include superfluous words or needlessly complicated expressions.



Reading Comprehension

a. Identify inferred idea
These are the old “read between the lines” questions. On an inference question, you’ll be asked to infer a certain fact or argument that would logically follow from the facts presented in the article.

b. Identify stated idea
These questions are reading comprehension at its most basic level. You’ll be asked to remember exactly what the author wrote at various points in the article.

Hope this helps!
