For all of you 700+ scorers, which is the best strategy for conquering RC?

Reading the passage closely and at once, or skimming through it while answering the questions?

Sketching the passage's flow and main data on a piece of paper, or keeping it all in your mind?

Any story like "I started with 3 mins per question and 70% accuracy and ended up with 2 mins per question and 90+% accuracy - and I'm not a native speaker"??

I think it depends on the individual, some people skim it once and jump to questions and then revisit the passage with each question while others make parallel notes while the reading the passage once thoroughly.....so i would say do what you are comfortable with.

If you have good memory and concentration power then nothing better. But the most common problem with most of us, including me, is that while we read a long passage our mind gets diverted to various things and we are unable to keep exact track of what's happening in the passage. So I read the whole passage throughly and write just a line or two per paragraph and found that I could keep most of the things in my mind. Sometimes I do have to refer back, but thats ok. I don't have the figures but my accuracy has increased.
But again, these things differ from person to person. You have to figure what suits you the best.
