I found very complicated tackling supporting ideas questions in few seconds, I noticed that I always get stressed because I don't know if it should be better read first all the answers or the part of the passage carefully. I wonder if there is a specific strategy to face these type of questions. Thanks in advance.

I am also a learner, so hope that my sharing opitions could help you.

First, "practice makes perfect"! You will get farmiliar to any logic in GMAT questions gradually by practicing more and more. Note that you need to choose high-quality questions, such as OG/GMATPrep questions, so you could learn much from them.

Second, try to learn some strageties to crack those questions from several GMATPrep Companies. Just try to learn anything you think that it's useful for you and that you could apply it well during practice. If you find hard to practice with any strategy, you could ignore it and try others. By practicing with many questions, I think that you could come up with your own strategy.

Hi paolo_giordanello ,

Welcome to GMATClub :)

Your strategy for such questions should be as follows:

1. Read the question stem and identify the type of question. In this case, it would be strengthen.
2. Read the argument carefully and identify the conclusion of the author.
3. Think about the possible answers that could make your conclusion more likely to be true.
4. Go to the options and search for wrong answer choices. Remember, you should have a solid reason while tagging any option as wrong.
5. Read the leftover answer again and confirm whether it is strengthening the conclusion.

Let me know in case of any concern. :)
