Quick question(s) for anyone who has used this book--

What is the general level of difficulty of the questions at the end of each chapter? Aside from question difficulty, how closely do these questions resemble the real GMAT CR questions in terms of language and answer choice patterns?

Also, as I am reading each chapter I am taking notes, reviewing each answer (correct and incorrect) and employing the strategies listed. Is there anything else I should be doing to maximize the usefulness of this book?

Thank you.

I used this book to fix my CR issues.. its worth spending time in the detailed chapters.. what i used to do, other than taking down notes, was pick related questions from OG and solve them after each chapter. say for eg. after completing the strength and weakness chapter, pick 10 questions from OG which ask for strength/weakness and try to solve them applying what you have read..

I'm using this book for my CR review. I'm not sure on the difficulty level of the questions. The method that I use is similar to what you are doing: read the chapter,take notes, re-read the chap,if required and then solve the Quest at the end of the chapter and then move on to OG.

The questions at the end of each chapter are specific to the material covered in the chapter, because you JUST reviewed the information and usually it's only on a limited number of topics, you should get most of them correct. What makes reading and using CR bible worthwhile is translating it to OG questions and strategy.

I'm reading that book nowadays.some end chapter questions are easy enough but some others (like assumption chapter) are very tough .I think it is not enough to read the book only once
