Hello guys..

about a month ago, I scored a 480 (33/23) in my first attempt of GMAT.

my-first-attempt-480-33q-23v-need-advice-experience-84495.html

Today, I just scored 560 (43Q / 25 V).
I had difficulty with time management. In the middle of the V test, I faced two HUGE passages (four paragraphs). It was pretty difficult to me to manage time.
:x
From my last attempt, I score 2 points more in verbal.

Oh, last weekend I scored 530 on Kaplan 1. And surely my weakest point was RC.
Whatsoever, I guess I need to practice more RC and CR (SC, my worst nightmare, was not bad at all).
Regarding that I remember most of RC passages of OG11, 12 and OG Verbal, Kaplan, Manhattan RC, I need a different strategy for RC from just reading books, newspapers (and, as I said, no GMAT books).
What would you suggest?

1000RC? (but they have wrong answers...)

Thanks a lot

:)

Congrats on the improvement - 80 points in a month is very good!
Have you seen these threads:

The key with CR and RC is to follow the strategies in the books EXACTLY as they are written and not skipping a tiny little step.
