From newspapers and magazines to correspondence and company reports, you use your verbal reasoning skills to make sense of all different types of writing.

At the graduate and managerial levels, many jobs require the interpretation and critical analysis of complex verbal information.
Almost all jobs require some form of verbal communication and/or reading written information. Internal correspondence with your colleagues can be more informal (depending upon who they are!) than when you are communicating with your customers or clients.
