Ive been having problems with CR and have been working intensively under timed conditions to improve. Giving myself a maximum of 2 minutes per question. I have been doing OG and LSat ones. My hit rate for Og is around 68%. For lsat it is 75%. Weird right? I just don't get how to improve anymore. I dont know what i am doing wrong, the percentage is just not changing.

i've been able to increase my % with CR by two simple things.

1. do LOTS of practice problems. the more you do, the more you will start to think like the test makers. but be sure to understand not only why you got one wrong, but also understand why you got it right.

2. read the question stem first, then read the stimulus, then, without looking at the answers, try to answer the question stem. then look through the answer choices to find one that resembles your thinking.

good luck.
