Hi,

it has been the beginning of the year that I'm preparing for gmat.
I'm ok with math, but have difficulty in English especially in the RC & CR.

Yes I'm reading English, but I dont think that my English will improve that fast. I wanna do the test by end of August.

by the way, my English isnt that bad...i did my college and university studies for 7 years in English...but I'm not that fluent.

any suggestions? any easy books or sites to start with? I'm studying the OG 11

THANKS,
If you have any questions

Bonjour!

I'm guessing you are from Quebec? Anyways reading from what you have wrote I think CR might be especially challenging, it might be necessary for you to purchase some additional guides (maybe there are some good guides on GMATCLUB, I personally have no examine them). One source I would recommend is Powerscore's Critical Reasoning Bible, which is adopted from the Logical Reasoning Bible (for the LSAT). Although some of the concepts may seem foreign at first, stay with it and I'm sure things will be more clear.

For reading comprehension, try reading the Economist and Time magazine, but instead of just reading for plot think about how the article was written, what was the point of the article. Remember to succeeding in RC does NOT require you to memorize every detail.

btw, I don't think its necessary a good idea to study the OG right off the bat if you have problems with the fundamentals of CR.
