I am done with GMAT official problems and looking to supplement it with LSAT problems.

What will be the optimum number of CR and RC problems that would help in maximizing the ROI from the GMAT's perspective ?

My best guess is 400 CR problems and 250 RC problems.

You need to be thinking more about the quality of practice than the quantity. You should be spending at least 4 minutes reviewing every 2 minute problem. Here is a great article on reviewing your work, http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... e-problem/, and here is a nice one on learning from your mistakes, http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... ur-errors/.

Spending 20 minutes reviewing a single problem can be better than doing 10 problems if you are finding and solving areas of weakness.

That seems like a lot. However, I don't think that this will cause harm as long as you give yourself ample time to properly review the questions. In other words, don't attempt to cram all of this in the last week of your prep. And don't worry about completing all of the questions. Push yourself, but don't go overboard with it. If you can "only" finish half, then you're still in great shape!

I used the LSAT SuperPrep, which contains 150 LR and 100 RC questions, and that was sufficient for me (though I also practiced some LR problems in the CR Verbal Forum).

Thanks, everyone.
I will let you guys know how the strategy worked out once I am done with the GMAT.

Be care of LSAT RC -- the passages tend to be much longer. They also may have some passages with sentence structures that are very long -- something you won't necessarily see on the GMAT.

Further, the LSAT CR may have reasoning question types that are not really on the GMAT -- ie find a similar pattern of reasoning.
