### GMAT Live Prep

## How to Approach

Sentence Correction

1. Grammar decoupled from the process – Since this is the first session of SC, many of you may not be aware of all the grammar rules. So you can get the maximum from the session, we will first ask you carefully selected questions that cover the underlying grammar rule tested in the question. We will discuss the grammar concept briefly so you all are aware of the pertinent rule before you move on in the session.

## Solving Sc Questions With Verb Errors

1. Gain a better understanding of overall verb tense usage

## Parallelism

You will first attempt each of the questions above on your own. Then we will demonstrate how to solve each question using the e-GMAT 3 step process.

## Modifiers

In this session you will learn how to use the process to solve questions pertaining to modifiers. You will see how understanding the intended meaning helps with determining the role and usage of modifiers. You will solve questions pertaining to all sorts of modifiers – prepositional phrase modifiers, verb-ing modifiers, noun + noun modifiers. You will learn about scenarios in which one modifier works but the other does not. Overall, you will see how the e-GMAT 3 step process simplifies otherwise complicated questions.

## Prethinking for Assumptions

This session will introduce you to one of the most revolutionary ideas to tackle CR questions: Prethinking. Since this idea was emphasized as a process two years ago by Rajat, founder of e-GMAT, prethinking has helped thousands of students ace CR. Since prethinking applies not only to assumption questions but to all argument-based questions, you’ll have learnt a much better approach to CR questions by the end of this session.

Since the session is primarily based on assumption questions, you’ll learn the three characteristics that any statement must satisfy to qualify as an assumption.

You will also learn“Negation Test”, which is a sure-shot way to separate assumptions from non-assumptions.

You’ll see a jump in accuracy as soon as you start prethinking and as soon as you start applying the negation test. As you internalize the learnings from the session and apply them, your accuracy level will keep rising.

After the session, you’ll not be satisfied with marking answers by hunch. This session will arm you with the correct approach and relevant concepts to understand precisely why the wrong option is wrong and the correct choice is correct. With clarity in your mind, your confidence level will increase tremendously.

As your understanding and confidence increases, you’ll notice that you are taking lesser and lesser time to answer CR questions. Most students who practice the post session exercises are able to reduce their time to answer CR questions to less than 1:45 seconds

Since the process of prethinking learned in this session applies to to all argument based questions such as assumption, strengthen weaken etc., which form more than 80% of CR questions, this session will lay a solid foundation for you to ace GMAT CR.

The session will explain the key concepts using simple examples so that you understand the core of the concept. The concepts that will be taught in this manner include:

1. Negation test

More than 90% of the session time will be devoted in applying the concepts.

We will discuss 6-7 full length assumption questions, most of them 700+ level. Each question is cherry picked on the basis of two criteria:

1. Why exactly the given assumption is required for the argument to hold

You will first attempt each of the questions above on your own and possibly fall into traps designed by the question makers.

We’ll then discuss the question in details using our standard process for solving CR questions. Since the standard process involves prethinking, we’ll also find out assumptions required even before looking at the option statements. For each question, we will prethink two or more assumptions. The focus will be on the approach (process) to prethink assumptions.

Lastly, we’ll not only discuss the argument and the option statements but also explain why the correct assumption is required for the argument to hold and how the question maker has specifically designed traps in incorrect option statements. Probably, your biggest learning will come from our latter explanations.

To make the session lively and participative, we’ll use lot of communication features including chat window, polls, Q&A pod, notes pane, presentation and annotations.

**“What and How to Negate”**and

**“Inference Vs. Assumption”**.

## Evaluate the Reasoning

In this session, you’ll learn an approach to solve Evaluate type questions. The process to solve these questions involves the use of prethinking learned the previous session. You’ll learn how to get the most out of prethinking in evaluate questions.

As negation test is in assumption questions, Variance test is in “Evaluate” questions. This test provides a sure-shot way to find the correct choice in “Evaluate” questions. You’ll learn about Variance test and how and when to apply it in option statements.

As you draw parallels between Evaluate and Assumption question types, and apply the prethinking approach, your accuracy will improve.This improvement will continue as you internalize the learnings from the session and apply them.

After the session, you’ll not be satisfied with marking answers by hunch. This session will arm you with the correct approach and relevant concepts to understand precisely why the wrong option is wrong and the correct choice is correct. With clarity in your mind, your confidence level will increase tremendously.

As your understanding and confidence increases, you’ll notice that you are taking lesser and lesser time to answer CR questions.

The session will explain the key concepts using simple examples so that you understand the core of the concept. The concepts that will be taught in this manner include:

1. 3-step process for answering “Evaluate” questions

More than 90% of the session time will be devoted in applying the concepts.

We will discuss 5-6 full length “Evaluate” questions, most of them 700+ level. Each question is cherry picked on the basis of two criteria:

1. How the correct choice helps in evaluating the argument

You will first attempt each of the questions above on your own and possibly fall into traps designed by the question makers.

We’ll then discuss the question in details using our standard process for solving CR questions. Since the standard process involves prethinking, we’ll also learn how to prethink assumptions and possible answers to “Evaluate” questions even before looking at the option statements.

We’ll not only discuss the argument and the option statements but also explain why the correct assumption is required for the argument to hold and how the question maker has specifically designed traps in incorrect option statements. Probably, your biggest learning will come from our latter explanations.

To make the session lively and participative, we’ll use lot of communication features including chat window, polls, Q&A pod, notes pane, presentation and annotations.

## Strengthen & Weaken

In this session, you’ll learn an approach to solve Strengthen type questions and Weaken type questions. The process to solve these questions includes prethinking learned in the first session. You’ll learn how to build strengtheners and weakeners around assumptions discovered in prethinking.

You’ll also learn some of the very common traps built in these question types. This is very important since the scope of strengthen answer choices and weaken answer choices goes much beyond that of assumption and evaluate answer choices.

After learning about the correct approach and common pitfalls, you’ll see at least some instant improvement in your accuracy level after the session. However, as you internalize the learnings from the session and apply them, your accuracy level will keep rising.

After the session, you’ll not be satisfied with marking answers by hunch. This session will arm you with the correct approach and relevant concepts to understand precisely why the wrong option is wrong and the correct choice is correct. With clarity in your mind, your confidence level will increase tremendously.

As your understanding and confidence increases, you’ll notice that you are taking lesser and lesser time to answer CR questions.

The session will explain the key concepts using simple examples so that you understand the core of the concept. The concepts that will be taught in this manner include:

1. 3-step process for answering “Strengthen” questions and “Weaken” questions

More than 90% of the session time will be devoted in application of the concepts and the process you learnt in the course.

We will discuss 5-6 full length questions, most of them 700+ level. Each question is cherry picked on the basis of two criteria:

1. How the correct choice strengthens/weakens the given argument

You will first attempt each of the questions above on your own and possibly fall into traps designed by the question makers.

We’ll then discuss the questions in detail using our standard process for solving CR questions. Since the standard process involves prethinking, we’ll also learn how to prethink assumptions and how to create strengtheners and weakeners around assumptions.

We’ll not only discuss the argument and the option statements but also explain how the correct choice impacts the argument and how the question maker has specifically designed traps in incorrect option statements. Probably, your biggest learning will come from our latter explanations.

To make the session lively and participative, we’ll use lot of communication features including chat window, polls, Q&A pod, notes pane, presentation and annotations.

## Weaken

## Bold Face

In this session, you’ll learn an approach to solve Bold Face questions. Given the nature of these questions, the process to solve these questions is quite different from the approach to solve other questions. You’ll learn a very scientific yet simple approach to handle Bold Face questions.

Option statements in Bold Face questions use some common terms to identify the bolded segments. These terms include evidence, circumstance, fact, observation, judgment etc. In this session, we’ll learn about these terms – what do they mean, where can they be used and in which situations can they be used interchangeably.

You’ll also learn some of the very common traps built in Bold Face questions.

After learning about the correct approach and common pitfalls, you’ll see at least some instant improvement in your accuracy level after the session. However, as you internalize the learnings from the session and apply them, your accuracy level will keep rising. E-GMAT Students have achieved over 90% accuracy in these question types.

1. 4-step process for answering “Bold Face” questions

More than 90% of the session time will be devoted in applying the concepts.
