Dear All,
I Have read through Manhatten CR guide, however, it takes me around 5-7 minutes to solve a CR problems using their T Diagram approach. Still not having 100% accuracy and unable to categorize the problems as a logic gap, feasibility of assumptions, alternate path to conclusion, and alternate method of causation.

I do take long time to comprehend the problems also.

Any suggestions for me to overcome these issues? My GMAT date is on 30th May.

Regards
Siddharth

Manhattan GMAT offers but one approach to CR questions. While many students thrive from their systematic, diagram-based approach, others, such as you, may not.

Other approaches included deconstructing the problem verbally. I have noticed many students can get lost in the words and lose sight in what the argument is saying.

First off you should be able to identify the question type. Next you should be able to re-phrase/simplify the argument in your own words and then anticipate the answer by asking, “An answer choice is one that must…”

Of course, getting to this point isn’t always easy. It sounds like you are still struggling identifying the logical gaps in the argument. The following video should be very helpful.
