Data Sufficiency — Nurture over Nature

with 3 comments

Nobody likes Data Sufficiency questions. They’re like the Pigeon Pose in yoga — unnatural, and therefore uncomfortable.

The good news is everyone feels this way. No one is born a good Data Sufficiency question-taker. You become good, but you have to work at it.

Turn this to your advantage. Data Sufficiency questions are very coachable. If you’re planning to study for the GMAT for 3-4 months you should actually be HAPPY that Data Sufficiency is on the test because you can gain a competitive advantage.

Try this question:

Is the positive integer k a multiple of 54?

1. k is a multiple of 6.
2. k is a multiple of 9.

Check out the answer to this sample Data Sufficiency question. Click on problem #2.
