A search on CC for CR yields the following answer:

Your search for CR matched 4107 pages.

This means that the question has been answered many, many times.

You can use "google this site" to refine your search.

It is a good exerice in critical reading or reading comprehension to wade through the countless posts.

One quick tip for CR: the answer is ALWAYS in the document you are reading and do not use prior knowledge to determine your answers. The answer is right there in front of you. As far as methods, there is NOT a single method that works for everyone and YOU have to try them all to see what works for you. That is a big difference from the math sections where some methods are clearly better. The verbal sections are completely dependent on the abilities of the testers, especially the power to concentrate for 15-20 minutes. The ONLY way to improve is by practicing the various methods as you won't find universal shortcuts.

Xiggi is exactly right, practice and absolute focus makes it much easier. Thoughts about Janet Reno is gonna have to wait until the math section.
