Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
this is one of those things that might work for some and not for others. personally i like to read the question first and then go to the stem. as you mentioned too, it does prepare me to look for the issue with finer comb while reading the question. however, some argue that this strategy could cost you time, since most of the people who do this end up rereading the question again. i argue that while reading the question all you need to remember is the type of the question and nothing more, so rereading is not really necessary unless you are very stressed and can not focus.
yes, this is the best method. below you can find the 16 types and their sub-types that could appear in the CR section. for more knowledge and info that could help you to attack each type you should invest some time and money and buy a book that could teach you the CR and learn... hope this could help you a little
1 inference or must be true questions 1M [sub of 1] main point of the argument
2 strengthen 2N [sub of 2] Necessary assumption of the argument 2S [sub of 2] sufficient assumption
3 weaken the argument 3R [sub of 3] select the answer that is most weakened by the argument
4 what method does the argument uses 4F [sub of 4] logical flaw of the argument [there are about 70 major types of logical flaws that could appear]
5 parallel reasoning 5F [sub of 5] parallel the Flawed reasoning of the argument
6 resolve the apparent paradox that appears in the argument
7 what is the role of the portion of the argument that has been selected [they highlight a portion in stem and ask what role it plays in the stem]
8 which answer must be false base on the stem
PI what is the point at issue between 2 speakers in the stem
EA which answer will let you evaluate the argument.
Good luck buddy... Side note: I took the LSAT before GMAT and the CR on LSAT is way more difficult and trickier then GMAT. When I changed my strategy to reading the question first then go to the stem, I did improve my score by about 15% in those sections. But you should see if it would work for u.
