Hello everyone,

Because i'm restricted in the amount of time I've got to prepare for the GMAT, I chose to learn just the subjects I scored poorly at on the Diagnostic test (which are sentence correction and math).
I did not learn RC or CR, because my scores are acceptable on that front. My GMAT test day is next Wednesday.

My question is: Does anyone have any advice/ information that you think is critical for RC and CR to get a good score? Some quick advice I don't need hours of time to study for.

I'm learning with the Manhatten books and the official guides btw.

Thanks in advance!

I think its very important to know each type of question. I.e. inference questions are very different from strengthen and weaken questions. You need to be aware of what type of question is asking to do well on the CR & RC question. Same for primary purpose & complete the passage questions. Similar to each other but different from other types of questions.

Best of luck! Kudos if it helps

Hi JA91,

From your original post, it sounds like you took the GMAT on April 19th. How did you score (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
