VERBAL TRIAGE

A ground-breaking EMPOWER tactic that will help you to crush the quant section by quickly moving past the questions that don’t matter. It’s also helpful in aiding you to take an educated guess on any question that you’re “stuck” on.

Critical Reasoning:

Strengthen/Weaken/Assumption/Evaluate a Plan

Focus Bombing:
 Right answers for these questions must meet these two criteria:
 1. Who is the argument about?
 2. What are they doing?

Eliminate answers that are out of the logical focus of the argument.

Inference:

Wrong answers tend to use exaggerated language (all, none, will)

Reading Comp:

Purpose

Focus Bombing:
Right answers for purpose questions must meet these two criteria
1. Who is the passage or part of the passage about?
2. What is the author doing?

Eliminate answers that are out of the logical focus of the passage.

Inference:

Wrong answers tend to use exaggerated language (all, none, will) Right answers are extremely unlikely to repeat a line of exact or nearly exact text from the passage

Detail

Tempting wrong answers tend to draw on correct ideas, but slightly alter an aspect of what was stated that renders the option wrong.

Sentence Correction:

Singular vs. Plural: The right answers are more frequently singular
Stuck? Go shorter: Approximately 75% of right answers are among the shortest two options (based on publicly released official GMAT questions)

VERBAL QUESTIONS WORTH TRIAGE-ING 

As a general rule, these Verbal question types tend to be more ripe Triage targets:
1. CR Bolded Statement Questions.
2. CR & RC Tedious EXCEPT questions.
3. RC Detail questions that require EXTENSIVE passage revisits.
4. SC questions in which each option is unique (no commonality among the options).
