GMAT Critical Reasoning can be particularly challenging for many test takers because it's so specific. It's like Reading Comprehension, but with a much shorter passage that is always an argument and questions that are focused almost exclusively on inference and extrapolation (two of the hardest things you're asked to do on Reading Comprehension). About a third of the Verbal section is Critical Reasoning questions, so they're clearly important to your score. So how can you perform well on GMAT Critical Reasoning questions?

Here are some expert guides on GMAT Critical Reasoning questions that provide an overview of the Critical Reasoning section, what it tests, how you can identify what the various Critical Reasoning question types require you to do, and how you can successfully prepare for them.
