Hi,

I am preparing for GMAT since last 2 months. I have read couple of books like OG,Kaplan,OG review etc... but I am still stuck in 550 in practice tests...I am very poor in Verbal section specially CR and RC. Could any one suggest to improve CR?

Hi,

Sorry to hear that. Did you see the resources from our CR forum? You should be able to find really helpful stuff there:
gmat-critical-reasoning-cr-139/

Another question - do you maintain an Error log? If you do, you should be able to identify your weakest areas.

Error Log is a powerful tool, as it allows you to specifically identify which types of questions you answer incorrectly. It's much easier and faster to improve your performance this way, as it allows you to focus on your weaknesses.

But I suspect that your problem centers on fundamentals. The best book for CR is Powerscore CR, while the best for SC is Manhattan SC. If you're first language is not English, then I strongly recommend those two guides. Other, general guides simply will not suffice. Another possibility is to read some GMAT Fiction whenever you have the chance. This is a relatively pleasant way to become more comfortable with reading in English.

The OG should be used for practicing and determining whether you have absorbed the necessary concepts previously learned. In other words, the OG must come after the study guides. Do NOT use the OG as a substitute for learning those concepts.

But, if possible, could you tell us a little more about your study schedule? Maybe some of our responses are not directly relevant to your particular situation. The more information we have, the better advice we can offer.

In the meantime, if you haven't already done so, make sure to check out this link too:

I took a practice test and scored very poorly in verbal, and I struggled a lot with CR.

I've since picked up a copy of Powerscore CR after reading about it on these forums and its a huge help - I feel a lot more confident about CR now... Definitely recommend it!

Good luck!
