[Announcement] New Paragraph Argument Lessons and Questions!

Even if you’re fairly new to the GRE, you are probably already familiar with those pesky paragraphs in the verbal section, which ask you to analyze the argument. These question types, called Paragraph Arguments (also sometimes called “Critical Reasoning” or “Logical Reasoning”), are indeed the bane of many a test taker, as such questions can take over two minutes.

Great news: we just released a few new things to help you prepare yourself for this tough question type!

Check out the list here: It’s under the Verbal Section, in Reading Comprehension! 🙂

We started working on these because many of our students asked for them, so thank you for your suggestions! We hope you enjoy these new questions– let us know how you like them! 🙂


By the way, students who use Magoosh GRE improve their scores by an average of 8 points on the new scale (150 points on the old scale.) Click here to learn more.

    When i gave my GRE last time, i didn’t know about these types till 1 month to my exam, i joined a few verbal classes where my teacher taught me about these and i did figure out they were present as different topics under the RC section, well i was a bit disappointed with Magoosh at that time 🙁

      Hi, Ankita

      I definitely understand your disappointment! We were working on getting more PA questions and setting them up more clearly in the topics section and I’m sorry we didn’t have them up in time for your last exam. We hope the new questions, lessons, and layout help you with your exam if you are thinking of taking it again :). Feel free to let us know if you have any questions along the way!
