Hi All,

What do you guys think about Manahattan GMAT critical reasoning questions? I think their wording is a little bit wieird and they always go too far in assuming things, conrary to the policy that you should not assume too far on GMAT questions. Like for example look at this explanation for one of their questions (below). I generally do good on the OG critical reasoning Qs but really bad on Manhattan GMAT critical reasoning, is anyone else facing the same problem

"Two points of view are expressed in the argument: consumer groups claim that a la carte pricing will reduce consumer costs, while the cable television industry claims that the current package pricing structure is most cost effective for consumers. If the goal of the government is to reduce the cost of cable television for consumers, it is critical for the government to determine which point of view is correct. The cable television industry favorably compares the cost of buying bundled channels to the cost of buying those same channels individually, but what if most consumers would choose to greatly reduce the number of channels purchased? That could mean that a la carte pricing would result in lower cable bills for those consumers."

I dont think anyone recommends their strategies in regard to CR. The CR questions are not of OG calibre and unnecessarily harder than OG11's CR.

I am starting to think that doing Manhatten GMAT CRs will actually hurt me because I will get used to assuming too much, which is not good for the real GMAT.
