Need to Improve CR- Expert Advice

Post Sun Jun 12, 2016 3:51 am
Hi,
This question is for experienced GMAT Instructors or anyone with good GMAT score(740+).

My progress in CR so far:
1) Completed all the videos and additional reinforcement questions on gmatprepnow website.
2) Completed the OG15 CR part with around 40-50% accuracy

Still struggling with the concepts and its applications to handle questions. Need to improve.
Please suggest some effective resources. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated but please be crisp.

Review anything you missed from the OG and make notes to yourself about why you made these errors. (Not paying enough attention to details in the language? Choosing an answer choice that did not impact the conclusion, etc.) Distill those notes into 2-3 concrete adjustments, then hit some more practice problems.

The best way to improve efficiency is to find out your pain areas and then work selectively towards them.
Try to drill down deep in the CR questions. There might be certain types of questions that are troubling you. May be Assumption, may be conclusion, inference etc.
You need to find that out and then practice them

As an addition, start preparing an error log and keep a note of all the mistakes you made and the lessons you learnt from the problems. This will ensure you do not make the same mistake again.

I would recommend you to go back to your OG and solve the CR section again after revisiting the fundamentals.
Have a look at this article to understand how to solve an CR problem:
