Guys,

I have a problem, which I have identified using the error log (thanks for that btw). My main weakness in CR is the questions where certain parts of the question are highlighted and I am asked to identify the role of these parts in the argument. (wordy, but you know what I mean) :)

Please tell me how you tackle those questions, what is the secret??

You need to understand how the argument has been presented. While solving any type of CR question always think critically and visualize how different sentences are linked and dependent on each other.

Buy powerscore CR bible to learn Basics.

Hi valentyn! I think your are talking about bold face CR. Hope this link will help you out strategy-and-tips-for-bold-face-65576.html

Also, as gurpreet mentioned, do go through MGMAT CR or Powerscore CR books. These are considered best in the town.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

Valentyn,

My advice is two-fold:

1. With every CR passage, you should identify the conclusion first. If you don't ID the conclusion, you'll have a hard time determining the role of the bold portions. This is because the bold portions typically relate to the conclusion somehow. For example, they might be supporting premises, contradictory premises, or even the conclusion itself.

2. "Split" the answers just as you would with Sentence Correction. If you decide the first bold section is a premise supporting the conclusion, look through the five answer choices and cross off all the answers which describe the first bold section as anything else. This is a good time-saving technique that allows you to leverage a single decision to knock out a few answer choices.

All that said, these questions are very rare. I'd need more information, but I might advise you to focus your time elsewhere even if this is your greatest weakness.

Good luck!
