Next step to improve on CR [#permalink] New post 18 Jul 2010, 08:03
Hi all,

After reading some posts from the forum for CR, my accuracy on the answers shown some improvement. However, a new problem arises - I took too much time to take notes and analyze the argument, turned out that though there are improvement on the scores, my time for each questions increased at the same time. Any one have any suggestion about how to reduce the time for CR while maintaining the accuracy?

I'm also learning new strategies for CR, RC etc and in the same boat as you are. I don't think there is any magic trick/article, I've seen or read about "reducing time while maintaining accuracy", for any section in GMAT. "Practice, Practice and more Practice" is the only mantra for reducing time while maintaining accuracy. I know 'it's easier said than done' but I think everyone would agree on this.
Wish everyone 'Good Luck' who're looking for ACCURACY and SPEED, including me:) .

Learn to walk before you can run. No point in blasting through the problems if you get them all wrong.

It seems you got the walking part down and are on the right track.

I was in similar situation when studying for LSAT and I found the following two things to help me a great deal:
1. Do a lot more questions. The more you do them, the more natural the techniques will become and the faster you will be. Make sure that you are doing the questions following your technique and not just guessing, etc. Point is to make the techniques a second nature.

2. Analyze the techniques you use. i.e. specifically for CR questions. Do you read the question or the stimulus first? I found that reading the question first allowed me to better analyze the stimulus. In essence I knew what I was looking for. Both methods are valid though and some people do better with reading stimulus first.

Practice makes it perfect!
