Of course, all the useful **tricks and shortcuts** that can help you deduce the **correct answer or save time** are also included in our GMAT syllabus, but the emphasis is made on the theoretical GMAT prep material and practice questions, because no set of strategies and tricks ensures high GMAT score if you do not know the material tested on the GMAT.
