The Problem Solving questions on the GMAT are the easiest on the test - which puts the pressure on you, the test-taker, to nail them all.
- The adaptive nature of the GMAT makes easy questions hard. Why this paradox? Because when you get an easy question, the pressure is on you to nail it - and nail it fast. If you miss on an easy question, the adaptive GMAT will relegate you pretty quickly to a lower tier score. And trust me, the pressure this puts on you can often lead you to get an easy question wrong. This is the paradox of the easy-but-hard questions on the GMAT.
- Problem-solving questions, unlike data sufficiency questions, are very predictable indeed. So - don't fear them. Adopt a methodical, workmanlike approach to these questions, and you will get them right with a minimum of fuss. That's what this class will help you do.
- Oh, and quick mathematical shortcuts are a big contributor to success on the GMAT. Use these shortcuts to solve questions in record time, or to confirm an answer you already arrived at using a more conventional technique. This course covers loads of such mathematical mnemonics.
