Scored 540 in 1st GMATPrep. I gave it only to know the pattern of exam and without much sincerity. Roughly I'll say that my scoring range will lie in 600-650 and I'm targeting for 700+.

I found Sentence Correction section quite challenging for me and Critical Reasoning very confusing and I need some guidance on how to prepare for these two.

Also for Reading Comprehension is there any specific newspaper reading is essential?

Thanks and Regards.
