A new chapter provides details about the new Integrated Reasoning section, as well as instructions on how to access an online study companion with 50 Integrated Reasoning questions and answer explanations. These questions simulate the actual Integrated Reasoning section, which includes questions that require you to toggle between multiple screens and manipulate data in tables and charts.
