The four parts of the test include the Analytical Writing Assessment section, the Integrated Reasoning section, the Verbal Reasoning section, and the Quantitative Reasoning section. Let's dive deeper and take a look at the various details of each of these sections.

In the Analytical Writing Assessment, you are only required to answer one question. You must finish this portion within 30 minutes. In this assessment, you must read an argument which has been provided. You must evaluate this argument and determine whether you believe a clear case has been made using relevant evidence. You are not required to have any special knowledge of a specific topic to answer these questions. You are also not creating your own argument in this essay answer. The sole purpose of this section is to demonstrate your ability to critique an argument given to you from an outside source. In order to earn a good score on this portion of the test, you need to showcase your ability to communicate clearly using written English. Your ideas must be organized and fully developed. If you think you could use some extra help evaluating arguments or organizing your ideas, a San Francisco GMAT prep course is an excellent resource to help you while you practice.

The Integrated Reasoning section consists of 12 questions that you must finish in 30 minutes. Therefore different kinds of problems in this portion of the test. These include graphics interpretation, table analysis, multi-source reasoning, and two-part analysis. You'll be required to understand Data which is presented to you in number form, text, or graphics. You will also be required to use multiple sources of information to evaluate and solve a problem. In order to receive credit for answering a question, you must answer all parts correctly. The main skill you are showcasing in the Integrated Reasoning Section is your ability to look at large amounts of data from different sources and make logical decisions. This is a critical skill which is necessary for all your MBA courses. If answering this kind of question is new or difficult to you, a San Francisco GMAT course or class can assist you while you work towards your grasp of integrating information.

The next section of the test is the Verbal Reasoning portion. This part of the test consists of 36 questions which you have 65 minutes to complete. There are three main types of questions in this portion of the exam: critical reasoning, reading comprehension, and sentence correction. You do not need any special knowledge of the subject matter presented in order to answer the questions. The critical reasoning questions will assess your capacity to create or critique arguments. They are generally based on a short reading passage, and it is your job to choose an answer that either strengthens or weekends an argument. The reading comprehension questions required to read a longer passage which is accompanied by questions but assess your ability to understand the material, make inferences, or possibly apply the material to a different context. Sentence correction questions are given to you with a portion which has been underlined. You were given five different options, and you must choose the option which re-freezes the underlined section of the sentence to create the most effective sentence. This is a test of your attention to word choice, grammar, and your ability to construct a proper sentence. If you would like assistance in working on these skills, a San Francisco GMAT course or class can cover these topics and help you understand them better.

Problem-solving questions will assess your capacity to solve quantitative problems using logic and reasoning skills. To answer these questions, you must have a knowledge of arithmetic, geometry, algebra. However, this is not a test on your math skills but instead Is testing your ability to think logically.

David Newland sees himself not simply as someone conveying information and content but as a coach as well. As he explains, “The students that I work with need more than knowledge, they need to be able to perform to the best of their abilities on test day and it is my pleasure to help them do it!” As a competitor both in athletics and debate his whole life, he could choose to focus on his own successes of which he’s had many, but David finds a greater pride and joy in learning of the triumphs of his students. He truly relishes hearing from students he’s worked with that they have gotten their goal score or into their dream program. So if you’re fortunate enough to work with David, please be sure to let him know when the same happens for you.
 
Despite all the accomplishments, David did suffered one somewhat traumatic blow early in life. “I put together a song and dance number for the third-grade school talent show and the music teacher required me to lip synch so that no one would have to hear me sing. My dreams of a music career were shattered.”
 
Born and raised in Independence, Missouri, David earned his JD from Michigan and MA and BA from Truman University and now enjoys living in the beauty of Vermont. In fact, inspired by the Green Mountain state’s quiet, open roads, he’s now considering getting a motorcycle so that he can drive very slowly on the deserted roads of the early mornings. Might just be a great chance to sing out loud as you go, David.

Real reviews

Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not
I paid for 28 hours of online tutoring with Veritas Prep. I was assigned David Newland as my instructor. It was the best money I could have spent. Within six weeks of working with David, I scored 770 and 760 on the GMAT Prep Software PP1 and PP2 tests. On the real exam I scored 700 (90%), comprising Quant 47 (73%) and Verbal 39 (88%). The drop between the PP tests and the real test was mostly due to nerves and bad time management on the day. Could I have scored 700+ without David? Probably not given I only had six weeks to prepare. David was excellent. With 8+ years of GMAT experience he knows how to solve every question the test can throw at you. He explained methodology in a clear and easy to apply fashion. He was also flexible and we could frequently schedule sessions on short notice.

This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out
Got so lucky to get David Newland as my instructor. I went into the course more confident in quant, and David is a verbal expert, specifically in Critical Reasoning. This guy is smart and really knows the GMAT inside and out, which was helpful since I had never taken the exam before. I could hear his voice inside my head as I did practice problems and during the actual GMAT.

David was excellent.
The instructor David was excellent. I found that he took the time to explain each section properly and in easy to understand language. I very much enjoyed this course and would recommend it to any one with a very hectic schedule.


Education:
BA, University of Washington
After receiving her degree in Physiology from the University of Washington, Erika took what she thought would be a short-term position teaching at a private tutoring academy while she finished her grad school applications. Several years and many score reports later, she was directing the academy, developing all new curricula for a wealth of standardized tests, and loving every minute of it. When an opportunity arose to write test content for an edtech company in Boston, Massachusetts, she bade the Pacific Northwest farewell and took a harrowing cross-country plane ride with her two very unhappy cats (for concerned readers, they have since forgiven her).
 
Since arriving in the Northeast, Erika has contributed to writing and editing thousands of GMAT and GRE questions and explanations, hundreds of lessons, and a growing number of instructional YouTube videos. She uses her experience being a testmaker to teach her students how to truly think like one — a process that not only yields impressive score improvements, but also empowers students to develop long-lasting critical thinking habits.
 
In her spare time, Erika enjoys making the most of her tiny kitchen and scoping out new taco joints. She still hasn’t finished a single grad school application, but at this point, she’d much rather help you with yours!
