approach to a type of questions is something very subjective. What I may find best may not be as comfortable for you to follow. Try a bunch of questions, half with one strategy and half with the another strategy. You will yourself figure out what suits your best

I think jax91 gave perfect advice: do what's most comfortable and effective for you. When it comes to me, I prefer Powerscore's approach. I would also add that Powerscore is generally considered the best preparation for CR.

Firstly, I cracked CR directly: argument, then question.

But, after million of practice, now I could anticipate the right answer on the certain question. I start with question first, then, reading an argument I instinctively realize what information more essential for certain type of question.

I read the argument first and then the question it works out for me better. But as others suggested every one has different strategy so try out for your self and select the method which suits you the best.
