Mastering GMAT Critical Reasoning

Average: 4.9 (111 votes)

You know why GMAT test takers score in the low 600s or never cross the 700+ mark?

They fail to look at critical reasoning as a scoring opportunity. GMAT Critical Reasoning is not a puzzle. There is no extra point in getting to the answer without using Process of Elimination. You are wasting your time over analyzing the answer choices or posting your findings in GMAT Forums. The so-called Critical Reasoning experts know the answer. Justifying an answer choice is much easier.

The real secret is in understanding the “Scope of the Argument.”

Once you know the Scope, you can eliminate 2 out of 5 answer choices.

How will you find the right answer from the 3 remaining answer choices?

F1GMAT’s Mastering GMAT Critical Reasoning will show you how. We take the mystery out of critical reasoning questions.

The approach is simple – we teach you how the test creators manipulate your reasoning abilities with Ad Hominem, Slippery Slope, Affirming the Consequent, Generalization, Inconsistencies, and Contradictions.

We don’t just explain why an answer choice is wrong. We look at the manipulative reasoning tactics used by the test creators.

After you read F1GMAT’s Mastering GMAT Critical Reasoning Guide, you will:

1) Learn to eliminate out of scope answer choices

2) Learn to spot logical fallacies

3) Learn to read questions by focusing on the holy trinity – premise, assumption, and conclusion.

4) Learn to disregard filler information

5) Complete GMAT CR Questions in less than 1 minute and 40 seconds


"When I started my GMAT prep, Critical reasoning was one section that I couldn't figure out. Sentence correction was easy as I blog on a regular basis. The Critical Reasoning books in the market are filled with question banks that force students to learn by practice. It works for many people but for me, understanding the fundamentals was more important if I ever were to improve my score. F1GMAT's Mastering GMAT Critical Reasoning does just that. The book forces you to think from the perspective of the test creators. After the chapter on Syllogism, I began to look at the answer choices closely. I could eliminate 2 answer choices by writing down the scope of the question. By looking at how test creators divert the attention of GMAT test takers, the book points out several logical fallacies that I used to fall for when I began my test preparation. My accuracy is now at the 94-95% mark"
