Not being good at verbal is a common issue for most non-native speakers. But if you approach it in a structured manner, you can get substantially better over time.

You'd have to dig deeper to identify if the problem is with at the conceptual level or with speed.

For the former, check out the resources on GC, including the sub-forums here --> GMAT verbal.

For speed, the more you practice simulating real conditions, the better you'll get. If you've exhausted the diagnostic tests from the material you've listed, here's more --> GC Test Center.

Keep in mind that you are also racing against time for the main applications as well. If you can get a good score in the next month or two, you can target Round 2 deadlines for many bschools.

Which CR problem types? All of them or a specific one? Are you getting confused by the complicated wording of some problems, or is it something else? Have you kept an error log, and if so can you see any patterns in what you're getting wrong?

Hi You need to work more on theories rather than just doing problems.

Understand the argument throughly first and then move on to answer choice.

TO get better accuracy, get the Powerscore CR bible, Everyone feel thats the best book around for CR.
