Help,

I tried the MGMAT RC and CR books and it didn't help me. Anyone out there know any good review books or strategies to improve RC and CR?
I've tried PR and Kaplan as well. I liked Kaplan best out of the 3 i've tried so far. But, is there anything you've tried and worked best?

Thanks!

As many members have already pointed out, both RC and CR are difficult to teach because the skills necessary to do well in those sections are highly subjective. I think the books, such as Kaplan or Manhattan, can teach you the basics, but it ultimately your success comes down to your inherent ability.

I would suggest that you go over many question types and look for patterns in your errors. Learning by doing is a great way to develop your skills. Use this forum. I found that by participating in discussions, answering questions, and letting others look over my answers, I learned a lot more then by simply answering questions from a book.

CR.
Know the different types of questions- then practice! practice! practice!
Start off slow and understand each question to the fullest until you get to the point where you get most of the questions right. Then focus on your timing.

RC.
First, pick a strategy that works for you. Everyone has a different technique. Kaplan Verbal Workbook reviews 3 different strategies you could perhaps read about. Then, after you've got a strategy that works for you- Practice! Practice! Practice!

Good Luck!
