BOOKMARKED
With an attractive title like that, it's surprising you're even reading this. I started preparing for the GMAT with the CR section and went through at least three different strategy guides before putting together my own document with the best strategies in them.

The document I've attached here basically contains a comprehensive list of question types, identification techniques, approach techniques and correct/incorrect answer choice justifications. I've also included two examples for each of the types I've mentioned.

I am also a big color junkie. If it doesn't look good, I don't like reading it, so I made it as colorful and lively as I could. And I thought I should share it with you guys, should it help anyone at all.

Quote:
Disclaimer: I have just shared my understanding of various strategies and I have used examples from several other sources, all of which are listed in the document itself. This is merely meant to help people out with understanding the concepts. It's NOT a substitute to the guide book. So don't sue me! :D

Quote:
Recommendation: Go buy the Powerscore CR and Veritas CR Guides. Both of them are excellent sources of problems and strategies. The Powerscore CR Bible clearly explains what I've summarized here and Veritas has some examples that illustrate the strategies very efficiently!

Oh, no I don't have anything against it. I just don't want to start preparing for that now because I am better at Quant anyway. So I don't feel the need to do something as comprehensive.

No, not yet. I was supposed to send bb a copy of the Word document but I can't find where I put it on my computer. So, it's probably in my school's access account. I'll get it out soon
