In Table Analysis, you will be presented with a sort-able table of data, similar to a spreadsheet, which must be analyzed to determine whether answer statements are accurate given the information presented. Table analysis brings together two skills; making logical deductions and parsing tabular data. It takes advantage of the computer based nature of GMAT, so it’s important to remember that the tables are sort-able spreadsheets. GMAC has made available a few sample questions and more practice material will be available with the release of the 13th edition of the GMAT Official Guide.
The challenge of table analysis is facing a new set of data and understanding how all the pieces fit together. Table analysis is supposed to determine your skills in solving real-world problems. You have likely already dealt with plenty of spreadsheets in your life, so you should be accustomed to interpreting this sort of data.
