Hi Guys,

My GMAT exam is in 3 weeks and I am really struggling with the CR part. My accuracy in OG questions is 50%. I am doing problems from OG13 in sets of 10 and every time I eliminate 3 easily but I choose the wrong answer from the two options that are left. Sometimes I just can't understand the paragraph at all. I am non native speaker and I hope I can find a strategy to improve my CR skills.
Currently I just read the question, then read the paragraph, then go over the options and try to eliminate the ones that are 100% wrong.
Is there a better way to deal with CR questions ?

Thank you !

Hello!

Although it would be difficult for me now to give a full CR lesson, two books I have seen highly recommended are the CR Bible by Powerscore and Manhattan Prep's CR. There are many other great guides available online, but these physical texts are quite popular.

Hope you have gone thorough Manhattan for CR, i would recommend that one needs to go through first two chapters of CR from manhattan for sure to get a good grip on basics.
Secondly also make sectionals in wiley and solve them as verbal sections

While you've self-identified CR as an area that you need to work on, it's possible there are other areas that might also requirement some work. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) What is your exact Test Date?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
