The following topic list or syllabus is not meant to be exhaustive nor definitive. Consider it a guideline for topics that we are expected to cover as a result of the stimulus materials reviewed in class. Also note that an essential GAMSAT skill is the analysis and interpretation of graphs, diagrams and tables, which is an integral part of our GAMSAT courses and videos.
