In this video you can watch an overview of the Verbal section of the GMAT exam presented by the official creators and administrators of the test – the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).

Learn how the Verbal section of the GMAT exam helps evaluate a candidate's ability to synthesize and understand large amounts of material using reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction. These are the three types of multiple-choice questions asked in this part of the exam.
