Does anyone know of any good ways of mastering the CR. I thought I had. However lately I seem to be making several mistakes working through the Verbal OG.

Any tips on mastering this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I've noticed that when I am studying using 'official' questions I do much better rather than when I am studying using 'unofficial' questions...should I worry with this. For me not being a native speaker doesn't help either, however I believe that the best recipe for sucess is unlimited practise...


Using the CR 1000 too along with OG and OG Verbal. Attached file. One thing you don't have to buy! It is official GMAT questions from past tests. I have noticed some repeats with the OG so it's a good c/k.

Same here I did well on OG CR but bad on this. But will practise and aim to reduce errors.

I felt exactly the same way. I did well on OG-CR and suddenly I seem to be getting way more errors on the 1000_CR and that has thrown me off.

The only thing that I think is the key is reading the question and looking at the answers very carefully. Might take more time initially but think in the long run we will be OK.

Additionally, I think there are at times answers that seem correct because we have already interpreted the statements in a particular way. Assume nothing that isn't stated explicitly.

Hope some more people can chime in. Have you started 1000 CR?

hm It is hard to explain. I usually inherently figure out the argument. I usually do not go , ok here is the conclusion, here is the evidence etc. It usually just makes sense. But for someone having trouble, I'd have to say read and understand the stem. This is big. Then ask yourself questions. For assumption questions you cannot stray far from the argument at all. If the answer choices mention a fact or nouns not associated with the argument at all, I eliminate them. It may be a twist, a similar type of word, something that is mentioned in the stem, but not, so eliminate it. If the stem talks about fuel efficiency, you do not need to talk about fuel cost in the answer choice.

If true questions, look for answer choices that do appear far from the argument but are not. Usually gives scenarios that would strengthen or weaken argument, IF TRUE. Now read through each answer. A LOT might make sense but you need to find the one that gives a scenario that talks to the stem. Think, if this scenario happened, how would it affect what is stated in the question? Ask that question for each answer choice, and MAKE SURE not to lose sight of the stem.

CR on GMAT is airtight. That is what makes it sweet. I really wouldn't practice CR other than official material like LSAT and OFF GUIDE questions. You will just drive yourself nuts because a lot of other questions leave open airleaks.

Once again the above is my strategies. Not sure if they apply in every case, but they work for me.

Terp, OG was good exactly for the reason you state. The choices are airtight.

What was your experience on CR1000? I've been trying to understand if those are good practise or am I just wasting time and losing confidence.

you have to be aware that some of the answers are not right on CR 1000. For instance, be especially careful of tests 12,13. I gave up on the CR1000 for this very reason. You can't practice when the answers aren't 100% correct. Although the gmat CRs are much easier compared to the LSATs, i practice w/ LSAT problems with offical explanations. At least i don't have to second guess myself.

I felt that of the GMAT test C and D too. Are the LSAT problems you practise different from the LSAT_1000? Where can I get that set? Thanks!

The LSAT questions are all in the CR1000, but you don't have the OE's. There are some books out there that provide the unofficial explanations of questions in the previous practice LSATs. Such bks are fairly inexpensive. Check it out, see if it helps you.
