hi guys,
i got 36 first time. trying to reach 40, not an english native speaker.

signed to e-gmat. hate to be the party pooper, but didnt quiet feel any improvment.

i was good in SC from some reason, and their course is great in that manner, but RC i started around 85% and it stayd there, same with what i c as my weekness - cr. i started around 70% and im still there, i solved all official stuff and i have no more questions nor ideas how to got to the 40' in verbal.

1. where can i find good CR stuff to solve
2. any other advice?

hi jonyg,

You'll probably find this CR question bank to be very useful: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... -questions

Getting to 40 requires a good thought process and mental strength to go through the entire test with alertness. CR - tends to be more similar to math in terms of the logic - but it does get tricky reading those complex paragraphs and even understanding what the question is asking.

We recommend a visual-based approach with mental frameworks. You'll notice that you can apply the same framework across multiple questions in order to assess what is being asked and pre-think the answer choices. That's right. There are certain techniques you can use to pretty much guess what the answer will be - then it will be your job to scan the answer choices to look for that answer choice. These techniques won't help you find the exact answer all the time, bu they will help you understand what the correct answer will look like.
