How to imptove RC accuracy? Looking for advise. [#permalink] New post 30 Nov 2012, 11:59
Hello everyone.

I took the GMAT the last week, I got a 640 Q: 45 and V: 34

I want to re-take the test in January.. I am trying to improve my verbal score the most.
I spent most of my time on SC questions, I did improve my accuracy.
But now, I realize that during the test I struggle on some CR and RC questions, specially the High difficulty questions..

Right now I am using the Power Score RC book for the CR section, great book, (in my opinion better than the MGMAT CR) I think that will help me to improve my CR accuracy...

But now I am not sure which material to use, in order to improve my RC accuracy... I have the RC MGMAT book, but I would like to ask if there is some other material that might be worth reading or if there is a course worht buying such as: e-gmat or gmat pill..


I feel that if I can improve my RC accuracy by finding a suitable approach to tackle the questions, I would be able to improve my overall score..


Any advise on the RC ?

Thanks in advance

RC is very user specific.
Before signing up for any "proven method", you should first try to be familiar with what suits you best.
For some RC tips check this video by e-gmat http://www.facebook.com/gmatclubforum?s ... TUNQRK1gIA

However, this does not mean that you need to stick to this process. If you like to skim passages this might not be the safest bet. To get a more holistic view of RC strategies check gmat-club-s-reading-comprehension-strategy-guide-83101.html

If you plan to take either gmat pill or e-gmat there are samples available you could check them out and see they suit your style of studying. I found gmat pill pretty useful. Here are some samples
