In this video, Jen and Dave break down the three most common question types on the GMAT Critical Reasoning section: Weakening, Strengthening, and Assumption questions.

They start by covering the structure that underlies all three question types, then show you two strategies for dealing with Assumption problems in particular: one, how to check the validity of an assumption by using the Negation Test, and two, how “pre-phrasing” can help you recognize an assumption in the answer choices much more quickly.

Stay tuned for the rest of the lesson, where Dave and Jen walk you through a full guide to CR questions and sample problems for each type.
