Help need for CR [#permalink]  23 Jun 2012, 07:07
Hi,

I am really struggling with CR questions during mock tests. I have completed Powerscore CR Bible.

After each chapter I completed relevant question from OG. Those time I had 80% hit rate.

I now have started solving question from here. Tried two different methods.

1) Without taking notes directly reading through the argument and answering the question

2) Taking notes, making clear distinction b/w premise, conclusion and assumption.

I do not know what is going on with me . I started losing my hope. I need some kind of strategy.

Hi Prakash!

Sorry that you're having trouble!

Definitely keep up the notes. They're a huge help, and a vital part of your prep. However, if you feel like their holding you back, it's worth taking a look at how much you are writing down. Many students end up taking notes almost as long as the prompts themselves, and this isn't helpful! When I'm making my notes, I use arrows, abbreviations, and sentence fragments to save time and space. No one will see them but me!

Aside from that, however, I'm not sure what to advise you. In particular, an 80% hit rate from the OG seems pretty good, all things considered. How are your verbal sectional scores turning out?

Also, have you noticed any partiuclar Q types giving you trouble? It's worth breaking down your errors. It's possible that CR is just generally tough for you, but you might discover that most of your errors are one particular type of question--and that discovery could lead to an easy solution.

I hope this helps!

Currently I am scoring 32 in verbal part. I am able to get 70-80% of the questions correct in RC and 60-70% of the questions in SC. Working on clause constructions, tenses and idioms were I am often making mistake. For CR I'll figure out in which sub-topic I am lagging and try to strengthen myself. Plan: Do 10 CR questions in each sub topics from gmatclub (700+ questions) and then figure out were I am lagging. Kindly put your thought.

Let me know how that goes--if you do well in all of them, then you will need to work on your fundamentals, but if it's just, perhaps, Inference or Evaluating Arguments that are giving you trouble, you can focus on those! _________________ Eli Meyer Kaplan Teacher http://www.kaptest.com/GMAT Prepare with Kaplan and save$150 on a course!
