An updated edition of the Graduate Management Admission Council’s Official Guide for GMAT Review, is now available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The new edition includes access to the Integrated Reasoning online prep tool to help test takers prepare for the latest section of the GMAT exam.
“The new mobile app now allows test takers to study for all sections of the test, including Integrated Reasoning. The app is a fun, engaging and effective way to put your prep efforts in the palm of your hand,” Andy Martelli, GMAC vice president of new product development, said Thursday in a news release.
The Integrated Reasoning section, which was added to the GMAT exam on June 5, measures skills related to using data to solve complex problems — skills useful in business as well as in business school.
The app allows test takers to study for the GMAT exam with questions retired from the actual exam, along with full answer explanations.
