The course covers timing strategy and problem-solving strategies for the Reading Comprehension, Logical Reasoning, and Analytical Reasoning sections of the test, as well as for the essay.
You will learn how to analyze logic, including if/then statements and deductive and inductive reasoning. You will learn to identify the main types of logical reasoning, including analogy, cause and effect, and statistical arguments. You will learn to identify faulty argument types, including argument against the person, false analogy, false cause, ambiguity, circular reasoning, and false appeal to authority.
You will learn how to skim Reading Comprehension passages for structure and tools for distinguishing between two very close answer choices. You will develop a systematic approach for organizing Analytical Reasoning information, how to create a powerful diagram, and how to recognize the main types of Analytical Reasoning questions.
You will learn how to maximize your use of time on the test, how to avoid the most common timing pitfalls, and how to gain significant extra points through timing strategy.
The strategies taught in this program have been tested and refined over 30 years of test prep experience with over a thousand students worldwide.
