You just have to practice. There's no way around that. Keep track of what types of mistakes you're making and pay attention to that when you're taking practice exams.

To help with CR in general though, it might be useful for you to start reading English news websites or English literature books. Those have more vocabulary words that you will find in the Verbal section and you'll get used to reading them and understanding them.

The most important skill for CR is to understand the argument only then you will be able to apply strategies.

I would recommend spending more time with questions if its in the initial stage of your prep take 5 questions and analyze them for 30 minutes. Quality over quantity :)

Check out this video by Brian:
an-architect-s-look-at-critical-reasoning-by-veritas-prep-142434.html#p1143539

It will give you some useful ideas.

I also love the Veritas CR book. It discusses various question types in detail and and draws your attention to the important points. The awesome thing about the book is that it doesn't overwhelm you with information not relevant to GMAT; it is very focused and provides you lots of practice questions too.
