The computer spreadsheet has become indispensable in management and, more specifically, in business. The table analysis portion of the GMAT integrated reasoning section was designed to incorporate this everyday element of business life into the exam to better prepare students for their MBA degree.

In table analysis, you will need to sort and analyze a spreadsheet table of information in order to answer a series of questions.

You will see ~ 2 table analysis questions out of the 12 total integrated reasoning questions during the 30 minute section. These questions may appear anywhere and in order throughout the 12 questions as they will be mixed in with the 3 other types of integrated reasoning questions.

Don't be intimidated by large tables with unusual numbers and percentages. With some practice, you'll be able to get the hang of it. Give it a try below!
