MGMAT SC vs Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible [#permalink] New post 23 Apr 2012, 15:19
hi All,

ive currently reached the CR section of the MGMAT strategy guides and have a query. i also have the Powerscore Critical Reasoning bible (heard very good reviews).

I was wondering if i should be choosing one of them to start preparing. Im currently revising the basics and my CR is at best 60%-70% on most of my tests.

which one would you recommend? Should i use both one after another or just pick one of them?

Powerscore CR is good but it is very time consuming . If you don't have time just go through the MGMAT CR book and the OG questions

If you have sometime, try PowerScore. It definitely helped me. My accuracy was ridiculously low on CRs. I feel drastic improvement in the way I approach CR questions after only 1 read of the CR Bible. (You may find it a bit dry in the beginning, but dont give up) :) Best of Luck.

Although I'm a tad late for this discussion and my opinion mostly repeats what others have stated, the Powerscore CR Bible is fantastic. In fact, I would say it's my favorite GMAT guidebook.

While some may note that it's a large book, that's because the book is so comprehensive. If you are running low on time, then my suggestion is to somehow make time. It's worth it! :wink:

Hey!! Thanks a lot everyone!
I think I will start with the powerscore CR then. BTW, I've heard that there are a lot of changes to the MGMAT CR book in the 5th version as compared to 4th ver.

I think powerscore CR and MGMAT CR are almost close (I have both of them), but powerscore CR holds edge.

I went through the 5th edition MGMAT CR. I don't see many changes. They have done away with those T-diagrams but the focus is still a lot on diagramming
