Had taken a break for the last few days.
But everybody here looks to be gearing up slowly, which is good. At present I am revising on concepts in SC and CR where I am making mistakes in tests or practice. Overall momentum looks to be healthy and barring a few hiccups doing not so bad. Hope to keep the momentum going for the next few months before D-day.
As far as books are concerned, I am re-practicing OG 3rd time now, after that a 2nd revision of CR Bible is lined up plus some tests from Kaplan and Princeton sandwiched in between.
Have already scaled 650 at the start of this month, have kept a target of 690 by the end of this month and 720 by middle of next.

In the initial stages of practice, try identifying the CR question types, apply the concepts you have learnt from PowerScrore CR and concentrate more on hitting the right answer. This can effectively help in building your confidence in the different CR question types/formats. Also it additionally helps you understand in which types you are strong at and in which types you need rework.

Trying to time the questions diligently in the beginning can dent your confidence if you solve any question incorrectly. So to start with, you can simply clock total time you take to complete a spedific set of Q's, which can be kept as a record for further evaluation in latter stages to understand how you have improved on your timing/approach along with accuracy.

So give accuracy the priority in the beginning and gradually inject time into it.

OG12 CR is way above OG10 CR.

So, I will suggest you to first do OG10 following CR Bible. I dont know your reasoning skills but doing OG12 may be challenging for you.

I m currently doing Norman lewis' How to read better and faster with a hope to improve my reading. I will revise MGMAT SC along with the OG questions as suggested by MGMAT.
You have improved significantly and I must congratulate you for the achievement and thank you for the wishes.

IMO revise MGMAT SC again with OG12 questions given at the end. I also did the mistake of not doing that. We must apply theory to practical examples.

We can study together for the MGMAT SC and OG12 for SC if you want.As I m going to start it next week.

Yes, I have a strong reason for that. I want to give powerprep before starting OG's. As there is considerable overlap among them. I will give both the tests in this week and from the next week I will start with the OG.

If you have decided to work on SC do not stop . Pls proceed with MGMAT revision + Grammar help if required from any topic + OG questions posted at the end of the SC book.

I will join u next week. :lol:

Are these books sufficient as suggested by the members

SC Mgmat SC
CR Powerscore Gmat CR

Do i need to get the OG 11 as well or OG 10, have the OG 12 and i went through it already but now i am trying to improve SC, CR, RC mainly. OG 10 might be outdated, i dont know.

I mean will there be questions referring to OG 11, 10 in either of the SC,CR books.

Thanks.

If you revise MGMAT SC, powerscore CR , OG12, OG verbal 2 at least 2 times, you will certainly improve in those topics. If you have OG12 do not buy lower versions as they have overlap with Gmatprep. Do Mgmat SC and OG12 together.

Thanks a lot, i now need to start with the CR, SC books then, thank gurpreet for informing me that i dont need to get OG 11, 10.

I will work with Mgmat and bible.

Some prefer Mgmat RC, some prefer Powerscore RC, i understand that RC is more about learning to read passages quickly and summarize them but for practice which is better or probably work with 1000rc.

Hi everyone,
This thread is really wonderful & inspiring... I mean the way u guys are helping each other & improving urself is mindblowing.
Well for me I face a lot of prob in CR & RC. When i take the prep tests & track myself with time in verbal my scores go to 30 only else it is always between 19 & 22. I am really worried of that as my quant comes to 47 - 49 most of the times but verbal is simply pulling me back from a decent score.
I want to join you people and will give the updates. :|

Bumz,

I am on the same exact boat. For now, I have reviewed some CR methods posted in this forum and in Kaplan's book and just doing OG questions. Not sure how to tackle RC though. Is English your first language?
