Hi Shagalo - I understand where you are coming from. I was in the same place as yourself and found CR very challenging initially. But I have definitely improved by doing the below:

- Joined e-gmat course. They build up with the basics.
- I also did powerscore CR bible.
- Practice practice and practice.

Everyone has a different way and has the own approach to tackle CR. I am telling you what worked for me. :wink:

I would like to spend my 2 cents

First of all : the worst thing you could do is to memorize the question. Believe me: will be a completely failure

Secondly: you have to lear the technique to tackle each type of CR

Look at this link. You have all you need in terms of CR, such as: strategies, tips and so on

the-most-comprehensive-collection-of-everything-official-cr-140375.html

gmat-critical-reasoning-10-most-common-question-types-162476.html

critical-reasoning-shortcuts-and-tips-91280.html

critical-reasoning-megathread-145178.html

Thirdly: look at the sticky posts on the board. We put inside everything a student needs :roll:

regards

I failed gmat many years and will take gmat shortly.

reading skill, taught in basic english course, is key to verbal section. I take a basic course in english to improve reading skill.

reading skill affect the cr fatally. the wording of argurment and answer choices are hard to understand and require reading skill. ability to sumarize/paraphrase is the key to cr. the logic of cr can be learned in a few weeks but the reading ability need many months of study in correct way.

caution, study in incorrect way cost you many months, even many years .

in fact , cr need only one skill, criticizing the argurment, which can be learn for a few weeks.

my strategy is to forget cr and to focus on reading skill and basic grammar. in short, to relearn english languge.

my thinking is proved by the fact that many international student study gmt for a few months and get success. when those begin study of gmat, they can learn sc easily because their grammar is good and they can already read the passages and argurment easily.

i hope you find my thinking revolutionary.
