Hi Experts,
1. Is it correct that we get 3 RCs in exam?
2. Out of 3, 1 is long passage & 2 are short passages?
3. Total RC Questions: 12-13 ??

You will get 4 RC's one of them will be really late in the exam around 30-34 probably around that number
1 Passage is pretty long and 3 of them should be around medium to small but usually the smaller ones have really tricky questions.

The only correction I will make to what fozzzy said ----
Everyone does get 4 passages.
Most people get three short passages (250-350 words) with 3 questions each, and just one long passage (350-450 words) with 4 questions, for a total of 13 RC questions. Those folks will get 14 SC and 14 CR.
Some people, though will see two short passages and two long passages, for a total of 14 RC questions. These folks will either get 13 SC & 14 CR, or 14 SC & 13 CR.
Also, I don't know that the questions are necessarily easier or harder for short or long passages --- the difficulty of the questions has much more to do with the complex algorithm that the CAT is following. For more on this, see:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/what-is-th ... tive-test/

Also, here are a few more strategy articles on GMAT RC:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/inference- ... rehension/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-rc-el ... g-answers/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-readi ... ully-once/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-reading-list/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/curiosity- ... n-success/

I hope all this helps.

Mike :-)

A thread can be made into a sticky so that it always appear on top!


That's really good.So, as the conversation goes on in a thread, several pages get associated with it.So, I think with the help of this permanent sticky the main post of the thread will always be on the top of every page associated with this thread.Let me know if I got it right ?

But, please tell me whether the thread initiator can use it(in that case where to get it)? Or it can be done by forum moderators only?

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.
