I used the conventional strategy of spending 2-3 minutes reading the passage and then moving on to the questions. I did not create maps and didn't take any notes.
It's also a good thing to see the length of the passage before you start reading. You can then adjust your reading speed accordingly.

Thanks a lot. But I have see a lot of instructors asking that you should really make a passage map.
How were you able to retain the content of the passages while answering the questions ? I mean, I tend to forget the content partially.

I am not an expert on the GMAT but I think what is important is to experiment what works for you and what does not. A lot of people make passage maps as doing so helps them give a structure to passages while some others say that making a passage map is a waste of time and also leads one to lose focus while reading.
So a better approach would be to try both strategies in certain number of passages and see which one works for you.
foofighter5, you have been preparing for quite sometime now. Haven't you taken the GMAT yet ?

Thursdays with ron are great videos. However, somehow I find them too slow. I mean you need to have a lot of patience to wait for Ron to type. So what I do is I buffer the video and then skip some of the portion where he's typing stuff.

Fabulous score and the best part was the systematic way in which you had written the debrief. Thanks. Which schools did you end up taking admission in ?

Thanks for the link of the document. It seems quite a nice compilation. However, I had a query. Since these questions in the document are going to appear in the GMATPREP CATs when I take them, so the score wouldn't be of much relevance as I would probably remember each question. So should I practice these questions now or should I directly take the GMATPREP CATs and once I am done with those, then I can probably move on to this document. Advice solicited. Thanks

Thanks! The passages in OG/Official Verbal Review/GMATPrep were close to the actual. RC99's first 10 or so passages dent your confidence and I don't recommend it. I did around 75 passages from it and that time could have been better spent tackling GMATPrep RC questions.

Thanks for your reply!
Yes, I always found the RC 99 passages a little strange and off as compared to OG or GMAT prep. I actually did 5-6 passages from the book and then stopped using it! I've done many passages from the OG though.


Good to see this now- actually I was considering to look for this piece but now I'll stick to OG material I feel.

and yup though it's late but nevertheless a big congrats to you mate :)
