How to Prepare for GMAT Integrated Reasoning

On June 12, the GMAT will unveil its new section and question type, integrated reasoning (IR). Although this section is described as “new,” it isn’t a significant departure from existing question types. The following is an overview of what you need to know and how to prepare to maximize your GMAT success.


The New GMAT: What You Should Know

This new section takes the place of one of the essays in the “analytical writing assessment.” Where before test-takers had to write two essays, an “analysis of an issue” (an exercise in supporting your own argument) and an “analysis of an argument” (an exercise in evaluating what’s missing from another’s argument), only the argument essay remains. Integrated reasoning fills exactly the same amount of time. The test will therefore begin with the 30-minute argument essay, proceed directly to the integrated reasoning (also 30 minutes, like the essay it replaces), then give the option of a break before the quantitative section. The test still lasts 3 hours and 30 minutes, or 4 hours with the optional breaks.
