Kaplan and Kaplan 800 explains the different types of CR questions.

To improve your CR, work out all CR problems in the OG 11 and OG verbal review. make sure you read the explanations for each single question and each single answer choice.

Before you start practicing CR questions, make sure you know the different types of questions. And then also pay attention to the most common wrong answers for each type. This helps to eliminate wrong choices right from the beginning. Then, start off your practice using the OG. At first, you want to take your time with each question. Understand why you got a particular question right or wrong. After a while, try and pick up some speed. And then with lots of practice, you should start to see improvement.
This is the process that worked for me! Hope it helps you in some way.
P.S. Search for CR on this forum. You'll find lots of other great tips.

There are many types of CR questions. But the vast majority of them will be strengthen/weaken and assumption. These types of questions require you to identify the assumption. At least that's what the books will tell you.

Most importantly it is necessary for you to identify the conclusion. You need to recognize what the conclusion is saying. If it + and the question tells you to weaken it, the answer must make the + into a - and vice versa.

Step #1 Identify the conclusion.
Step #2 Manipulate the assumption to make the argument (the conclusion) agree with the what the question asks you to do.

Go from there.
