All,

Can some one suggest me good CR practice tests available online? I have completed Powerscore CR, manhattan CR and OG12 but I am still finding difficulty in nailing the question. It looks like I am lacking practice.

It sounds like you have gotten more than enough practice already. What's important is to make sure you are getting something out of that practice. If you have done all that material, and are not getting the vast majority of CR questions correct, you would be better off spending some significant time reviewing the work you've already done. I see this all the time with my students--just doing a lot of problems is not much help.

Here are some things to look for:

1) Have I broken down the argument correctly? For instance, for assumption-based questions (Strengthen/Weaken/Assumptions/Flaw/Evaluate), am I able to identify the conclusion, the supporting premises, and one or more assumptions?

2) Am I able to clearly identify what I am looking for before I examine the answer choices? (E.g. If the question says "Each of the following supports the argument except," I am looking to cross out 4 answers that strengthen, and select one answer that does not strengthen, although it may not weaken.)

3) Can I explain why each wrong answer choice is wrong and each right answer choice is right?

4) Do any of the answer choices represent familiar traps? (Wrong direction, out of scope, too narrow/broad, false variation, numbers vs. percentages, term switch, etc.)

5) On conclusion/inference questions, have I chosen an answer that sticks very closely to what is said, or have I chosen an extreme answer that may require one or more assumptions?

If you take the time to perform this kind of review, you shouldn't need much more in the way of resources! This will benefit you much more than simply doing hundreds of additional problems.

Thanks a lot!!

Though I already know these concepts, I always find difficulty in implementing them on the question. For 700 level questions, I am not able to explain to myself why an answer is right. Sometimes, I miss details in the argument :( and fall pray to the shell game answer choice.

Let me try to follow these concepts more critically.

I wrote MGMAT CAT2 (680 - Q48, V34) yesterday and answered 9 out of 14 CR questions correctly and somehow feel that it is easier to increase score in CR than to score in SC and RC.

I too have the same problem for 700+ level questions.......I find it very difficult to apply the CR bible concepts to these problems under time constraint.......and for 600--700 level problems ....I get them correct without applying these concepts.......
