Would you suggest doing CR from Kaplan and SC from Princeton or does Kaplan have good strategies for both......

1) The book i bought costs just Rs 200. It does not have a CD. If you can afford it, go for the book which comes with the CD which costs arnd 1000 i think, or else you can purchase this book and try and get hold of the CD. I think the material will be the ...
Hi Sunil_dr
Great Score Man......Congrats !!!
But i have a few questions...........
Firstly, "Found approach to critical reasonsing mentioned in the Kaplan book helpful" ........... can you just illustrate as to what it was. Should one buy it ?
Secondly, What is a BOLD face question ?...
Gave the GMAT today! Got a score of 710 (Quant - 51, verbal 34). Pretty much satisfied. I suppose i could have done much better in verbal, but at the same time 710 is not bad either.
Material Used:

Wow, Coolioooooooooooooooooo
My Best wishes Amit!!!
In very rare cases does ISB take in freshers. AFAIK in 2004 batch there were 2 freshers, one was the youngest CA and the other was an IIT gold medalist. ISB basically focusses on Lateral placements unlike other Indian colleges. If u have a VERY strong application u can apply but I would advise u ...
