I don't see sketches for SC, but I hear people do them for CR.

Yes, people do prefer diagram for CR in the way MGMAT teach but personally I don't see any use of drawing a diagram on GMAT. It's time consuming for me. It's better to use your mind to remember some details than drawing...

ill agree with that. and even some of the RC (the shorter ones) i feel like I dont need to do draw or write anything as it is just a waste of time. Maybe for some of the longer ones that contain more detail I would write something down to just remember wherever it is and I sometimes and maybe can come back and see it and be of use.

if you list the answer choices like : a,b,c,d,e i would suggest you doing it during the intro period. the intro is like 5 mins or so - thats enough to get some listing down for SC,CR or even DS problems.

Personally I don't like the diagramming strategy that MGMAT CR suggests since I find it too time consuming. As others have mentioned, I use the Powerscore CR strategy and write down

A
B
C
D
E

and cross out each one that I think is wrong.

For RC, perhaps analyzing the key purpose, structure and argument of the passage would be ideal.
