So i just finished up my MGMAT CR guide. I have a decent accuracy rate on my CR questions about (get 25 out of 30 right) but i still take about 2.5-3 minutes per question on average. I have used MGMAT's strategy of t-diagramming and S-W-Slash charts which i think might be a factor in my time since making the diagram takes about 60-70 secs for me.

Am i following the correct approach? Do people use t-diagramming a lot?

T-diagramming is definitely a time consuming approach, I personally think it shouldn’t be followed.

Nmehta3 depending on how much time you have left, I would advise you to practice fast reading. I am a non native speaker, but my current program is in english and I have to read tremendous amounts of articles. I started to speed up reading while staying really concentrated 3 month ago and I can read most passages in less then 40 seconds. Try to speed up reading, it will be a huge improvement to your overall timing!

Hi nmehta3,
I have the same problem that T-diagrams consumes too much time. Speed reading definitely helps but I also found that taking notes after you've read the entire passage cuts down on your time vice taking notes after each sentence.

One method that works for me is using your fingers/hand to lead your eyes while "pointing at" key words for emphasis.
