That's really great..I'm struggling with CR..Can you please suggest some resource ? For CR, you can try either Powerscore CR Bible or Aristotle CR Grail. Both books are good-the only difference is that in CR Bible there are no practice questions, but in CR Grail there are 100 if i remember correctly.

Secondly, was hoping to get a few pointers to on GMAT Maths. English is something that I have a natural flair for, and constant practice of RC, SC and CR is making things manageable. However, being from a humanities background, my math skills are less than average, and is a reason of great worry, since I'm targeting a 720+ score. Are there any specific areas in GMAT math which require more attention and practice than the rest? Please help:) If I were you, I'd focus the most on Number systems. I think this is the most important area on GMAT Math Newbie | Next Rank: 10 Posts Joined 07 Nov 2013 Posted: 5 messages Srilankanaspirant wrote: If I were you, I'd focus the most on Number systems.

True. Number system is the darling of GMAT primarily because a lot of it is not quant but common sense.

Its more on the lines of the GMAT. CR bible is too lengthy and is also not updated.

If you are done both with the OG and CR Grail, you would want to firstly revisit all the questions you got wrong , redo them , analyze them and then move on to other sources. It's a waste of time to be doing many practice sets without learning from them Senior | Next Rank: 100 Posts Joined 19 Feb 2014 Posted: 42 messages Followed by: 2 members Upvotes: 3 I'm in the last leg of my prep where I am taking practice tests every other day..Planning to take the exam in another 2 weeks and I hope I can pull it off.

It's a waste of time to be doing many practice sets without learning from them This is what exactly I had mentioned in my other post. I'd add a bit though. It's not only important to redo wrong questions but also analyze the questions that you got correct otherwise a lot of times we ourselves dont know how we got a question right.

Absolutely true and something i have seen happening with me first hand. I don't know why i didn't realize it earlier but i should have. analysis is the key and not doing more questions as i had believed • 1 Hour Free BEAT THE GMAT EXCLUSIVE Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Free Trial & Practice Exam BEAT THE GMAT EXCLUSIVE Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Award-winning private GMAT tutoring Register now and save up to$200
