OG, Kaplan, PR - Math/Verbal Workouts [#permalink] New post 29 Aug 2007, 07:18
Hi everyone -

I've just begun my studying, and have been through the PR book, and most of the Kaplan book (from the course). I am also working with the OG as I go along as well.

I'd specifically like to become more advanced in my SC (which I am taking the Manhattan Guide SC is the best), and CR (I'm pretty good at this but want to make sure I nail every advanced CR question) - but am unable to find on these boards a good CR book.

I also need help on math. Very general at this point - but I need to beef up my PS and DS skills - so my questions are:

1. Are any of the other Manhattan Guides good/worth it?
2. Which verbal workouts do you think are best, or which do you think are worth buying - the OG verbal and math workouts, Kaplan's or PR's verbal and math workouts?

Thank you!
Julia :-D

Hi Julia!

Here's the cold hard truth. There are no good books for critical reasoning. If it's any solace, the CR for gmat is far easier than the LSAT.

Some people use the critical reasoning bible for GMAT. Take a look at the number of pages. It's huge!!!

Also, some people practice on the LSAT CR questions to get used to higher level problems.

Neither of these situations presents a good answer to your problem.

My suggestion would be review simple Aristotelian(sp?) logic. You know, the if then clause, contrapositive etc. Do it briefly. Then get used to the questions format.

I bought some book that was useful (I forget the name of it, but check my debrief) it was simple but by far the best guide on CR.

Just remember that CR expertise comes mostly with practice. Remember that assumptions and conclusions are the most relevant part of the argument. Identify and maniuplate the assumptions and evidence to arrive at the conclusion that the questions asks for.

Good luck.

Thanks Kiddereck! I'm not TOO worried about my CR - Ive barely had any issues with hard CRs (I hope I am not jinxing myself right now). I just need to practice practice practice math and SCs.

I am kind of enjoying this process, as sick as that sounds, I always need a 'project' to do. I have got about 6-9 months to get my score down and I think I can do it. Some motivational thinking should be helpful at least.

I have the PR book you mention, the verbal workbook. It's great for additional practice, so yes, I would get it. I thought PR was better for verbal than Kaplan.
