First, I'd encourage you to linger in these forums more often. It adds a lot of value and you gain a wealth of knowledge.
Fortunately or unfortunately CR and RC are two areas where (only) practice can take you a long way. You need to solve tons of problems and develop an ear for the GMAT problems. Once you are through with 100-200 official CR problems you will start to observe patterns in the questions. Almost always there are opp. answer choices, out of scope choices, too narrow answers etc. CR Bible is a pretty decent book, and if you are through with the concepts, I'd encourage you to practice through the GC forum (do use tags).
Try to pre-think the answers - helps immensely. If you are not familiar with the concept, please search through posts on GC (or google) and you will find a lot of good videos. (there was one session held by e-gmat
recently on this)
RC is the most boring section of the test for the majority of the test takers. The only way to excel in it is to read GMAT-like material (economist
) in your free time and do lots of passages. Break the questions into the following:
according to the passage - answer is in the passage
infer/suggest - answer is not explicitly stated in the passage
try to pre-think the main point of the passage.
for SC: you might also want to consider Aristotle grail.
you haven't mentioned any material, so I assume you haven't done a very structured study yet.
Manhattan guides would do for the starters.
practice tons and tons of questions from these forums. Reach out to fellow members and learn as much as you can from bunuel's posts.
start with NS, algebra, geometry and co-ordinate. Do basic P&C and probability questions - don't jump the gun there. Also, try to do 15-20 questions at a stretch - helps you grasp the topic and builds stamina.
you may put kaplan 800
on hold for now. You would do well to master 650-750 level questions for now.
Whatever you choose to do, you should be thorough with the OGs, supplements and the question pack.
