Edit update: 17/6/17, made a minor correction to inference template. rest all remains the same.

Hi,

I have compiled the templates using the following resources: e-gmat, magoosh, manhattan cr guide, whiplash's guide to CR and some of my own approaches that have worked.

glossary
negation test - https://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/assumptio ... -the-gmat/
premise - evidence
predict the answer choice - https://e-gmat.com/blogs/wp-content/upl ... s-V1.9.pdf
stimulus - passage before the question and the answer choices
because-therefore test- suppose you are given a sentence with 2 conclusions- Lisa is a poor student and has a poor academic record. As a result, she is in desperate need of a personal tutor. Thus, she will be hiring a tutor very soon.

what is the conclusion over here?
1.she is in desperate need of a personal tutor.
2. she will be hiring a tutor very soon.

using because-therefore
1.Because Lisa is in desperate need of a personal tutor therefore she will be hiring a tutor very soon.
2.Because she will be hiring a tutor very soon therefore she is in desperate need of a personal tutor.

which makes more sense?
the first one right? Therefore the main conclusion is "she will be hiring a tutor very soon."
