It depends on why you make those mistakes.... Look at the questions you miss and make sure that you never miss that question type again (do what it takes).... I assume you have been using a CR book or course of some type and not just solving questions, right?

Don't panic! The same happened to me on the first day, but I excel in the same now. It was mainly after strengthening the basics by watching 25 short videos of GMATPrepNow on YouTube. I hope it helps u too!

Those are question banks- you should be using some sort of theory as well- ie something that will actually teach the material. Powerscore CR and Manhattan GMAT CR are popular. You could also check out videos on YouTube.

Even i got a poor accuracy in the CR section. While redoing the OG and VR questions i followed certain tips from this article "what and how to negate " from egmat. hope it helps you.

There are only so many different ways you can get a CR problem wrong! If you're making a lot of mistakes on the same types of problems, every time you study them, you're probably making some of the exact same mistakes repeatedly. That suggests to me that you should review the problems you're missing in greater depth. Are you keeping a problem log (a list of the problems that you've done, and your notes on them?) Are you redoing old problems at least once a week?

You really don't need to solve 21 CR problems a day, to be honest. It should take you at least five minutes per problem to review in enough detail, if not more (especially at first). Between the time it takes to solve the problems, and the time it takes to review, 21 problems a day could easily take 2-3 hours. You'd be better off doing a smaller number of problems and being more careful with them / redoing them later on, and also switching more often between different problem types - since that's what you'll actually have to do on test day.
