Total GMAT Verbal Table of Contents


Total GMAT Verbal covers every single question type on the GMAT Verbal section. But don't just take my word for it--here is the full Table of Contents.

In addition to the instructional material in each section, there are 200 practice Verbal problems. As in Total GMAT Math, those practice problems are interspersed throughout the book. For instance, after the chapter on Critical Reasoning Assumption questions, there are a handful of practice questions of that type.
