Achieving success in the Critical Reasoning section of the GMAT exam is as methodical as the name suggests. The section consists of a series of short passages (typically 100 words or less), a follow-up question, and five multiple-choice answers. Do not worry about being familiar with the content discussed in the passages. The goal of this section is to test your ability to make an argument, evaluate an argument, and formulate or assess various chains of reasoning.
In the Sentence Correction section of the GMAT each question consists of a sentence with an underlined portion. This underlined portion may contain an error in grammar or word function. Following the sentence are 5 answer choices, the first of which will always be an exact replica of the underlined segment. It is your job to decide whether the underlined segment of each sentence accurately and effectively expresses an idea or relationship, or whether the sentence could be enhanced by replacing the underlined text with one of the multiple choice alternatives. A correct sentence will be both grammatically and structurally sound. It will be clear and concise while conforming to all the rules of standard written English.
