Hi Charles,

Firstly, I really appreciate the work and the way you explain verbal concepts.

I am new to the forum , found myself stuck in a place not knowing, how to go about preparing for my verbal section in GMAT.
It was few days back I attended the live session through a link that was posted in gmatclub. this moment I feel THANK GOD I didn't miss it, because right now I feel I can streamline myself to get through the verbal preparation.

So coming to my second reason for this PM, I was going through the video on CR, part 101 and 102, I seem to have got a hang of the critical reasoning structure and how to think about it
1. thinking structurally,
2. looking out for modifiers,
3. No falling in love with the option.

Frankly speaking, I had all the above stated flaws before attending your session. So by second video I was training myself to compel and do as per the list.
Also I have a habit of putting flow charts, which I ignored for a while , now getting back to that, which is giving me more right answers .

I have 2 questions based on the above topic Critical reasoning, considering I m only following your videos to get the skill of CR.
1. I am able to follow the elimination method and cross out three answers very efficiently with the structured thinking , But few times I m noticing the I am missing a slight logic and picking the wrong answer out of the last two. especially when I see the explanation you give in the video later.
In fact the logic I follow in reasoning out is very similar to the explanation u give, but in the last two I m facing difficulty, which I m getting stuck with , its like a just miss of the right answer.
Want you to help me with that, how do I overcome of this problem or hiccup. Sorry if this is a very lame doubt to ask.

2.I am into doing flow charts as I said before. I am timing myself in any CR that I do, but not able to maintain that 2 min time span, it crosses around 3 min , which is scaring me . How should I go about efficiently using my 2 min time per question

Adding to the above queries could you provide me any links or list of questions in CR, that could tune me to answers CR with more precision. I was trying to go through the GMATClub for questions, but as there is a ocean of questions, I seem to be lost or get distracted and end up doing random questions.

Thank you for your time, apologies for the long PM.

Looking forward to your help and guidance.

Hi sulaikha,

As you're new to the forum and probably did not know how to PM a gmatclub member, Just click "Send PM" right below the user profile and rest is just like posting to forum. Also, to tag someone in a post, prefix the username with @ (just like facebook :D).

But it is better to post if query is such. a post helps to get the attention of all. Now so that this post is noticed by charles - GMATNinja (tagged)!

Unless the question is a bad question, there won't be two "right" options. Marking the correct option (or removing the four incorrect options) is going to come down to logic. Keep practicing, and focus on recognizing the common patterns seen in CR and learn from your mistakes.

If you haven't already seen it, this article might help you a bit: https://gmatclub.com/forum/experts-topi ... 43170.html. I'm not sure that there's necessarily a "thought process" that will help you distinguish between the last two answer choices -- the question is why are you struggling to differentiate between them in the first place? In most cases, the GMAT will come up with one correct answer and one really tempting wrong answer, so in most questions you'll miss, you'll probably struggle between those last two. And the issue is very likely that you're misreading or misinterpreting something. It can be a very difficult thing to fix, but that article will give you some context on why that happens and what you can do -- both in the short-run and long-run -- to try to fix the issue.

You might also benefit from reading the explanations in our Question of the Day series. All of the QOTDs can be found here, or you could subscribe to the daily RSS feed here. Or subscribe via email here.

I hope this helps, and good luck with your studies!
