Hi piyush012,

Based on your question, it sounds as if you've put in some study time already. Before you invest in any new GMAT materials, 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) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

You mean how IS PowerScore for CR? i think it is very good since the program came from the LSAT but I would suggest that you perhaps start with SC and improve your grammar a bit - you skipped a verb in your first sentence.

Hi,

I agree with BB, its a good first step to start with SC & improve on that first. You should also read some GMAT style literature, it will get you used to the style of language used in GMAT Verbal. A good place to start that is here https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-improve-reading-regurarly-update-216511.html

For improving on SC, i suggest start with Aristotle SC grail/GMAT Club grammar book, as they both begin with very basic grammar stuff, before moving to advanced concepts tested on the GMAT.

GMAT CR requires a good grasp of English comprehension, as GMAT CR is all about details. Powerscore CR is in my opinion the best for GMAT CR. However its a huge book (300+ pages), so plan at least a couple of weeks for the first read of the book. If you are short on time, i suggest searching for the Powerscore CR summary on GMAT Club. The summary will be good enough to understand & then practice CR problems.

I suggest after a short preliminary study of grammar & reading practice, you can jump to Powerscore CR.

Make sure you make your own notes, while doing both the SC & CR study. It is easier to do revisions from notes, rather than going through the whole book again.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
GyM

There are multiple ways to improve your CR - we recommend mental diagrams to make sense of the passage. Oftentimes, you will find that there are certain types of setups in the questions -- so we help to categorize and make sense of these question types so you know what to expect when you see a particular setup.

How you think through a question dictates how much time you will spend on different parts of a question stem and corresponding answer choices. This is the key for time management -- minimize the time you spend on parts of the question that don't matter!

With CR, there's a lot of text to read. The key is to make sense of what's important and to ignore the stuff that is less important.

That way you can go into the answer choices already with something in mind of what to expect.
