    It is not uncommon to see a GMAT students vociferously justify their answer choice in the Critical
    Reasoning section – when, of course, their choice is incorrect.

    This happens much more frequently in the Critical Reasoning section of the GMAT, than in any
    other section.

    And one of the primary reasons for that is assumptions.

    When we are reading a short passage packed with information, it is easy to start making
    assumptions. While some of these assumptions are pertinent, others shift the scope.

    This shift in scope often leads us to the ‘logically correct’ answer choice which is actually wrong.

    So how do you avoid making assumptions?

    How do you stay within scope?

    How do you avoid falling into traps that the test makers lay for you?

    Perhaps more so than for any other question type on the GMAT, preparing for Critical Reasoning
    questions involves developing  critical thinking skills—rather than rote practice.

    Unfortunately, short of enrolling for a formal‘Critical Thinking’ course, there is no easy way to
    develop these skills from ground up.

    This was till the ‘Winners’ Guide to GMAT Critical Reasoning’ came along.

    This book will build your Critical Reasoning Skills from the ground up.

    It will give you a deep background on how to think logically, how to identify faults in your
    thinking patterns, the role of logic in critical thinking & how to develop it, and much

    The value of  Critical Reasoning skills goes well beyond success on the GMAT.
    Studies have found a strong correlation between Critical Thinking skills and corporate

    This eBook will help you not only to excel in the GMAT, but also lay strong foundations for your
    corporate success.

    This eBook will build your Critical Reasoning skills from the ground up, enable you to identify your
    fault patterns, correct them & apply your improved skills to the GMAT Critical Reasoning Section.

    Critical Reasoning on the GMAT consists of about 14 questions. These normally comprise a
    short passage with a question at the end of it.
    This short passage can be an argument, a dialog or even an advertisement.

    The question will typically test your understanding of the argument by asking you to either
    trengthen/weaken it,  identify the core assumptions, draw an inference or identify the relationship
    between different parts.

    To be able to do this in under two minutes, and with accuracy can be daunting task.

    And this is where the ‘Winners’ Guide to GMAT Critical Reasoning’ comes in.

    Some of the unique features of this eBook are:
