Hi,

I am retaking GMAT but i will start things from scratch. My CR is decent as compared to SC and RC.
I have PR GMAT manual.

In order to achieve a higher score in GMAT specially verbal, which strategy guide for CR would you guys recommend. Either sticking to PR GMAT manual or Powerscre CR bible?

Thanks,
Sid

I have not used the Princeton Review, but I always has heard that the Powerscore CR is the bible of the CR section.
I have used it and it is very good, although it is long :s

Thank you metallicafan and dzodzo85!!

My concern over here is using a different book(powerscore) this time will intend me to follow its strategy.

Is it going to be a good idea to change my strategy in this attempt rather then sticking to my old CR strategy?

Cheers,
Sid

It depends on how well your strategy is working for you. But most important is whether you are using the same concepts that the GMAT is using in that section (conclusion, premises, types of question, etc.) In that case, the Powerscore CR Bible does a great job.
