In this first lesson, you will learn about the general makeup of GMAT. You will learn how to relax when you start feeling panicky, how to eliminate the wrong answers, how to guess when you are not sure of the right answer, and how much time to spend on each question. Then you will learn the format of reading comprehension, sentence correction, and critical reasoning question, and well as the analytical writing section. You will examine problem solving and data sufficiency questions in the quantitative section and be introduced to the question types found in the integrated reasoning section.

Week 2

In this lesson, you will discover the tools you need to develop your own reading strategy. You will learn to focus on what is important and what is not. You will discover how to eliminate answers that hook unprepared test takers. You will examine GMAT reading comprehension passages that have appeared on past tests and learn to get the most information from the passages in the least amount of time. Then you will discover a detailed strategy for tackling multiple-choice question types that test your grammar and English usage skills. You will review grammar rules that are most commonly tested on the GMAT. 

Week 3

In this lesson, you will become familiar with critical reasoning questions. You will review the elements of a logical argument and the major types of inductive arguments you will see on the GMAT. You will be given step-by-step instructions on how to examine each type of argument and pick the best answer to each question.
