GMAT Graphics Interpretation Pros:
These questions are very practical for your future business career. Understanding how to interpret graphs is very important for your own good. The graphs themselves are usually not too difficult to interpret. Some of them may be types of graphs that you haven't seen before so you'll need to get used to them. More challenging will be the types of questions and calculations you'll need to make to answer the question.
GMAT Graphics Interpretation Cons:
You'll only see ~2-3 of these questions on your exam. Each question has two drop downs with a few answer choices each. Some of them may involve working with big numbers or percentages that you may not be used to working with. You'll need to develop good judgment about when and how to use the calculator. In some cases, it may not make sense to type into the onscreen calculator 3,200,000 divided by 8.75%. Find ways to make your calculations a bit simpler without opening the doors for potential calculation errors.
What It Means For You
Graphics interpretation questions are one of four question types you will see in the GMAT integrated reasoning section, which will take place during the first half of your GMAT exam. You will first start off with an essay on the analysis of an argument for 30 minutes. Then you will proceed with the integrated reasoning section, which will include four question types - of which one of them will be graphics interpretation. These visually appealing questions may be of various difficulty. Unlike the quant/verbal section, this section is not adaptive based on your performance on the previous question.
Remember, the quant/verbal section is still the main show. You want to do well with IR, but you don't want to get so caught up with it that it psychologically affects your performance on what really counts towards your 800 score - and taht is the quant and verbal sections.
