STRATEGY SHEET

Use this sheet to help you remember your math content. Be surealso to make use of the Kaplan Methodson the reverse side.

Picking Numbers: Pick numbers that are permissible and manageable. Backsolving: Start with choice (B) or (D). Equations and Variables: n distinct linear equations are needed to solve for n variables. DATA SUFFICIENCY 1 (A) #1 is Suff.; #2 is Not Suff. 2 (B) #2 is Suff.; #1 is Not Suff. T (C) #1 is Not Suff.; #2 is Not Suff.; #1 AND #2 are Suff. E (D) #1 is Suff.; #2 is Suff. N (E) #1 is Not Suff.; #2 is Not Suff.; #1 AND #2 are Not Suff.

Numbers:

0 is an even integer. 1 is not prime. 2 is the least prime number. Mode: the most common number(s) in a set Median: the middle term in a set of ascending or descending numbers; when the set has an even number of numbers, the average of the two middle terms Only (odd) (odd) and (odd) + (even) yield odd numbers.

The Kaplan Method

1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Take apart the argument/issue. Select the points you will make. Organize using Kaplans essay template. Type your essay. Proofread your work.

Do not let information from one statement influence your decision about the other statement. Combine statements only if each is insufficient individually. When combining statements, treat them as one long statement.

The Kaplan Method for GMAT Reading Comprehension

1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Read the passage strategically. Analyze the question stem. Research the relevant text in the passage. Make a prediction. Evaluate the answer choices.

Paragraph 1: Show that you understand the argument by putting it in your own words. Paragraph 2: Point out one flaw in the authors reasoning; explain why it is questionable. Paragraph 3: Identify another source of the authors faulty reasoning; explain why. In additional paragraphs, describe other points of fault, as time permits. Second to last paragraph: Describe evidence that wouldif it were providedstrengthen the argument. Final paragraph: Conclude that without such evidence, youre not persuaded.

Global questions: Use Topic, Scope, and Purpose, and your Passage Map to predict the correct answer. Detail questions: Use your passage map to target your research. Inference questions: Use clues in the question stem or answer choices to research; the correct answer will follow from the passage. Logic questions: Use your passage map and keywords to determine why or how the author uses the reference.

Paragraph 1: Restate the issue. Agree or disagree. Paragraph 2: Introduce a point of agreement/disagreement, with relevant detailed support. Paragraph 3: Add a second point of agreement/disagreement, with relevant detailed support. Continue to bring in points of agreement/disagreement as time permits. Second to last paragraph: Address an opposition to the argument and refute it with relevant detailed support. Last paragraph: Conclude with a final statement about your stance on the issue.

1) 2) 3) 4) Identify the question type. Untangle the stimulus. Predict the answer. Evaluate the choices.

Assumption: Identify the conclusion, and evidence; and determine the central assumption; predict the answer. Strengthen or Weaken: Identify the conclusion and evidence; determine the central assumption; predict the answer that confirms (strengthens) or denies (weakens) the central assumption. Flaw: Identify the conclusion and evidence; determine the central assumption; predict a choice that describes the logical fallacy of the assumption. Explain: Search the answer choices for a statement that, if true, could explain how the statements in the stimulus could all be true. Inference: Accept the statements in the stimulus as true; locate the answer choice that must follow from the stimulus. Bolded Statement: Identify the purpose of every sentence in the stimulus and select the answer that matches your desription of the bolded statements.

The Kaplan Method for GMAT Problem Solving

1) 2) 3) 4) Analyze the question. State the task. Approach strategically. Confirm your answer.

1) 2) Analyze the question stem. Determine Value or Yes/No. Simplify. Identify whats needed to answer the question. Evaluate the statements using 12TEN.

1) 2) 3) Read the original sentence carefully, looking for errors. Scan and group the answer choices. Eliminate choices until only one remains.

For Value questions, seek to find a single value. For Yes/No questions, seek to find a definite answer to the question. Keep track of your options as you go. If (1) is sufficient, the answer must be (A) or (D). If (1) is insufficient, the answer must be (B), (C), or (E). If (2) is sufficient, the answer must be (B) or (D). If (2) is insufficient, the answer must be (A), (C), or (E).

Verbs: Check for meaning and number agreement. Pronoun: Check for antecedent and number agreement. Modification: Check for proper placement and intended reference. Parallel Structure: Be consistent; use parallel constructions. Comparisons: Use parallel construction; make sure items are logically comparable. Usage/style: Avoid redundancy and passive voice; use idioms correctly.
