LSAT CR / RC , Powerscore CR ? [#permalink]

Hello,
Im a non-native english speaker. My reading speed is very slow because I have never had a habit of reading. My vocabulary/grammar is decent, so I do well on Sentence Correction. But in order to be able to complete the verbal section comfortably with high comprehension what should I practice?

I am aiming for a 720+ score and have just about 2 months before the exam (november 12th). I have all the MGMAT books, should I be buying powerscore CR as well ?

Have no idea about LSATs and whether they would be helpful for RC / CR , and how many of the questions should I do etc?

Any suggestions would really help me out .

Thanks

Hi trad, welcome to gmat club!!!
First of all you cant say that you will do good in SC as your grammer/vocab is fine. GMAT SC is quite a different beast that requires a different strategy altogether. You have MGMAT guides & I think these are quite sufficient to cross 700. Kindly also note that these books help you understand & devise some necessary strategies to tackle GMAT, rest of the hard work lies with the student. So be proactive in your apporach & make intensive use of MGMAT guides.

For CR, I think MGMAT guides is enough, but if you are curious to see Powerscore CR then you may go through it. But dont utilize both MGMAT & P.Score CR. Just follow the strategies mentioned in anyone of these books.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

Definitely get Powerscore CR, do not use LSAT questions unless you run out of CR questions. You should have plenty from OG 12/11 and verbal review guide.

Best wishes,
Dawg

Lot of people swear by powerscore CR...

So I will go with the advice of the gurus...

LSAT CR are normally difficult with lot of types which are not tested on GMAT .

Unless you run out of all the material OG 10,11 and 12 dont go for LSAT.

best of luck for your studies.

i think you have the tools you need to work with already but to improve powerscore is certainly nice. CR is a weird thing cause you know exactly what type of ques you will be getting - the rest hinges on your reading and reasoning skills unlike quant where you know what to do..

I agree with most opinions expressed here. The Powerscore CR is an excellent starting point for someone who struggles with reading. I would also advice you to generally read an article or two daily from magazines like The Economist or from newspapers like The New York Times/Wall Street Journal. It'll help build your English acumen and generally prepare you for better reading. Try choosing articles that you would normally just skip

The bolded portion is most important.

Indeed, GMAT RC passages are boringgggggg.
