Verbal Virtuoso: For Reading Comprehension Exams (SAT/ACT/GMAT/GRE/LSAT) is an innovative step-by-step program that will improve your reading comprehension for any standardized reading exam. This book will enhance just about any person's reading skills by offering a reading technique to locate key points quickly and effectively.This system was originally designed to help students score higher on the reading section of the MCAT(r) (Medical College Admission Test), one of the most difficult standardized exams administered in the United States. As this workbook has helped many students score higher on the MCAT since 2009, we have decided to offer this version of the workbook to anyone who wishes to improve their reading abilities or score higher on any standardized reading exam including the SAT(r), ACT(r), GRE(r), GMAT(r), and LSAT(r). If you wish to improve your reading abilities or desire to improve your reading comprehension scores on any of these exams, then this workbook will help you.The Verbal Virtuoso technique provides you with an easy and efficient system to analyze every one of the author's arguments presented in any reading passage. By asking yourself two very important questions upon reading each statement in the passage, you will develop a thorough understanding of the author's views and biases, as these simple questions force you to analyze the author's purpose in writing each individual sentence. With clear insight into how the author presents his or her arguments to the reader and defends these arguments, answering the passage questions correctly will be an easier and clear-cut task. By enhancing your speed to pinpoint these arguments, you will also learn to understand the author's key points in the passage quicker than other readers who read without a technique.Furthermore, we provide you with a systematic thinking technique that ensures you read each statement and THINK about the statement's meaning and purpose within the passage. If you have trouble focusing as you read complex material, this technique may help you maintain focus as long as you keep asking yourself our two questions. We understand it is difficult to read through dense and extremely boring passages, so we do not teach our students to read for enjoyment. Rather, we teach you to systematically analyze every statement, searching for any sign of argument. This investigation of the passage will naturally help you answer the most time-consuming and thought-provoking questions presented on reading exams (i.e. "Which of the following answer choices would most weaken the author's views presented in the passage?" or "Which of the following choices would the author most likely criticize?")Thank you, and we hope you enjoy this educational experience!

The GMAT Critical Reasoning Grail spans more than 240 pages and helps you master Critical Reasoning on the GMAT in a systematic way. The book firstly builds a strong foundation by discussing the basics of Critical Reasoning and then addresses each question type in-depth. It then goes a step further and provides you 100 practice questions for intensive practice. Like the Sentence Correction Grail, the Critical Reasoning Grail is written in an engaging manner and will equip you with all the skills that you need to tackle Critical Reasoning questions confidently. This book is superior to the other books available for Critical Reasoning in many ways. The GMAT Critical Reasoning Grail contains the most up-to-date content for Critical Reasoning. For example, while other books focus on Main Point questions, these question types rarely appear on the GMAT now. Similarly question types such as Logically complete the passage, which are increasingly being tested on the GMAT, find no mention in other books, whereas the CR Grail has an entire chapter that discusses this question type. What also distinguishes the GMAT Critical Reasoning Grail is that it helps you master Critical Reasoning in a step-by-step manner, using jargon free language and does not make you dependent on the diagrammatic approach.It is also the only book that provides you 100 Critical Reasoning Questions for practice
