Which section of the GMAT is hardest for you?

Post Wed Jun 14, 2006 3:57 pm
Among Math, Verbal, and AWA--which section do you think is most difficult? I'd like to get a sense of which section this community struggles with the most; perhaps we can taylor some content on this forum to help you.

Feel free to reply to this post if you wish to address something specific about your weakest section. For example, I find SC questions to be particularly hard in Verbal...

Thanks for your vote!

My verbal ability was lacking overall, but I found the Manhattan guide to be a godsend for sentence correction. As for reading comprehension, I think the approach depends on the individual; I prefer to skim the passage twice and refer back to when needed. But critical reasoning still drives me nuts. Is there a good guide or book for critical reasoning?
I haven't found a great resource for CR myself, other than OG. I find that CR is a lot like RC, in that the approach depends on the individual.

Check out this series of blogposts on my blog: http://beatthegmat.blogspot.com/2005_07_01_beatthegmat_archive.html

I also recommend checking out the resources in the CR area of this forum. Best of luck!
