Now I find out that the worst part in my preparation is reading comprehension. What's worse, I generally can understand what the author is saying, but when trying to solve questions, I always tent to wondering around between two choices, the right one and a wrong one, and finally decide to choose the wrong answer...

How to improve reading? I understand that the best way to practice is to read more, but my question is not only on reading comprehension, but also on answering questions. I mean, how to make the right choice between two answers.

Who can give me a little bit ideas or strategies?

Really appreciate your help!

Indeed, reading comprehension is perhaps the most difficult section to learn (and teach). Much of the strategies for RC revolve around focusing on TRANSITION words. It's one thing to say that and it's another thing to actually understand what that means. Take a look at these RC videos that essentially walk you through exactly what to focus on and what NOT to focus on for reading comprehension.

It's video-based, so if you like visual and auditory learning, then this may be good for you.

The program is called the Reading Comprehension Pill. Take a look and see if you like it.

For great advice and insight from past posters visit this thread:

Also, experimenting with different RC strategies may lead you to a more helpful method suited to your tastes. I would highly recommend trying Rhyme's RC strategy.
