I like to learn things from the ground up - the fundamentals, generalise the concepts, develop a strategy and attack. There are two thoughts going in my mind regarding developing my SC strategy. I have read Manhattan SC book thrice and solved first 100 problems of 0G12. However even after i am getting the right answers i am not sure of my approach/logic as i am in Critical Reasoning and RC questions.

1.) Should I go by the brute force route and solve problems after problem? However when i look at OG problems solutions, they don't show a standard approach of attack and the take - aways cannot be generalised. I have also heard that solving problem after problem will lead to saturation after a point.

2.) Another approach would be to refer to Sentence diagramming books such as "Doing Grammar". This however involves a time commitment and i am not sure if i would ultimately able to apply the concepts to GMAT Problems.

Hi Abhi,

Our advice is not to go for a radically different approach that involves a change in strategy and a large time commitment in learning the new methodology.

We would recommend instead looking at the rules and then solving the questions according to those. A brute force approach may not be helpful beyond a point.
