Parts of the integrated reasoning section will involve a lot of critical thinking. GMAT Pill has organized 5 Core Frameworks for Integrated Reasoning - especially helpful for the Two Part Analysis section.
For example, this is a diagram of Framework #3: Table Top. The idea of the table top is that anytime you make an argument, draw a conclusion, or claim something - something else is must be true that supports that claim or conclusion. That something else is called an assumption. That assumption acts like the supporting leg of a table. If that assumption is violated, then you know the argument or claim falls apart. There are a variety of ways to test the strength of the table top. And we discuss two major ways to test the table leg in the context of multiple examples. Don't go into your GMAT exam without understanding how the table top framework applies to GMAT integrated reasoning questions.
