Video: How to Approach Two Classic GMAT Assumption Questions

Posted in Test Prep on February 21, 2011 by


In this video, Jen and Dave walk you through two typical GMAT Assumption questions — and outline an approach that can help you deal with all arguments on the GMAT Critical Reasoning section.

They start by breaking down each argument’s evidence and conclusion, then explain how a little pre-work can help you eliminate trap answers and identify right answers much more quickly. At the second question (4:30), press pause to try it out before Dave and Jen’s explanation.
