(Pls ignore my grammer)
Hi Everyone,
I gave GMAT in Jan2011 and scored a miserable 530(Q42/ V21) and since then my prep has been on/off. From last few months, I've started my prep bit seriously. I'm non native, so my verbal is pretty weak. I'm quite eager to ask few questions on this forum.

1. What sources one can refer for Verbal other than OG and MGMAT?
2. My CR is pretty weak, I've to read 3-4 times to understand the stimuli and the accuracy is very bad. I've tried various techniques such as pre-thinking, assumption negation technique but none worked.
3. I'm planning to enroll in e-gmat sentence correction... Any thoughts?
4. I've read various posts and experienced myself that the most difficult questions come in RC section, which I've not been working on as regularly as I'm working on CR.

One general observation I've made is that I stumble on difficult questions, which demotivates my prep. I'm pretty confused about my prep and finding difficult to strike a balance between Verbal and Quant prep.

I'm planning to take GMAT in June-July2013 and aiming for 680+ but my prep is far from good.

Kindly suggest

For CR, what works for me best is to rephrase the argument. "so the guy says X happens BECAUSE a,b and c (the premises/facts" and when it's weaken/strength you know you have to focus on the "X happens" part.
